church bans african american wedding!?!? wtf??

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I am utterly disgusted right now. A Mississippi church was all set for a wedding with an african american couple. They were regular members of the church and had been regularly attending for months. The church is predominantly caucasion but they have alot of african american members. Well the day of the rehearsal the pastor approaches and informs the couple that they could not have their wedding there. Invitations were sent out..even thank you cards for the church. Apparently members of the congregation saw a group of african american women setting up the decorations for the wedding and called the pastor. He was told that no african american wedding had ever been performed in their 150 yr old church. He was informed that if he performed the wedding he would be voted out!!! How sickening that racism is alive and well in a place that says love thy neighbor! Ugh disgusting!

Hmm, never heard of crystal springs. I live near Gulfport and biloxi..

Is crystal springs in the back woods? The church is the first methodist church of crystal springs.

Ugh. Sometimes I am so embarrassed to be from Mississippi. I am so glad that atleast I am from the Coast! It seems more racist in the deep woods down here.
