Small Ky. church votes against interracial couples, prompting race argument between members

A tiny all-white Appalachian church in rural Kentucky has voted to ban interracial couples from joining its flock, pitting members against each other in an argument over race.

Members at the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church voted Sunday on the resolution, which says the church “does not condone interracial marriage.”

The vote by members last Sunday was 9-6, Harville said. It was taken after the service, which about 35 to 40 people attended. Harville said many people left or declined to vote.

The resolution says anyone is welcome to attend services, but interracial couples could not become members or be “used in worship services or other church functions.” ...

A Perfect Example Of JUDAIC &-OR JEWISH "RACISM" Involved The Former "Traditional" JEWISH SYNAGOGUE I Attended, Back In The 1980s, In My Old SOUTH-CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD At 89th & Houston: AGUDATH ACHIM BIKUR-CHOLIM !

In The '80s, This "WHITE"-JAPHETIC-ASKENAZI-(KAZAR)-JEWISH SYNAGOGUE, BIKUR CHOLIM, Was "RABBI-LESS" When I Was Attending On SHABBAT OR SATURDAYS !

The HEAD ELDER'S NAME WAS NATE; WHO BORE A STRIKING RESEMBLANCE TO FORMER ISRAELI PRIME-MINISTER YITSZAK SHAMIR: IT WAS NATE WHO "HELD" THE SYNAGOGUE TOGETHER WITH HIS WIFE.

I'D SIT NEXT TO DAVID OFFENBERG, WHO'S AN ARCHITECT & PARTNER OF BASIL TIRITELLI (OFFENBERG-TIRITELLI LTD.)--WHOM I BRIEFLY WORKED FOR AS A DRAFTSMAN.

MEMBERS INCLUDED THE "COHEN" BROTHERS--RETIRED TWINS WITH THE "BRACH" CANDY CO.

THERE WAS LEO, HIS WIFE & DAUGHTER; AND ZEPORAH & HER HUSBAND: WHO RAN A CLEANERS IN HYDE-PARK.

I CAN'T FORGET BERT MENDELSON; AS HE WAS A HISTORY TEACHER AT CHICAGO'S OLIVE-HARVEY COLLEGE.

BERT & I'D DISCUSS "JEWS FOR JESUS".

*It Was THIS JAPHETIC-JEWISH--ASKENAZI-JEWISH Synagogue, BIKUR CHOLIM, That Was SOLD To The HAMITIC-JEWISH--FALASHA / ETHIOPIAN-JEWISH Congregation Founded By THE "BLACK"-AFRICAN-AMERICAN-JEWISH RABBI, CAPERS FUNNYE, Who's COUSIN TO OBAMA'S WIFE: MICHELE ROBINSON-OBAMA !

Now, If Only JUDAISM'S SYNAGOGUES Will Follow Suit, As...

ALL RACES On PLANET EARTH Can Be Traced Back To NOAH'S 3 SONS: HAM, JAPHETH & SHEM (& THEIR 3 WIVES); SO, I DON'T SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS WITH THIS "CHURCH"--OR ANY OTHER "RELIGION" WHICH IS "DIVIDED" BY "RACE" !

EVEN JUDAISM, TODAY, IS "DIVIDED" BY "RACE" !

AS THE HAMITIC-JEWS OR "FALASHAS" (aka ETHIOPIAN-JEWS) IN ISRAEL TODAY ARE HORRIFICALLY DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BY THE MORE FAIRER-SKINNED &-OR "WHITE" JAPHETIC-JEWS; THAT IS, THE ASHKENAZI-JEWS OR NORTHERN-EUROPEAN-JEWS &-OR "CAUCASIAN-JEWS": WHICH RACIALLY COMPRISE OVER 90% OF THE "JEWS" LIVING IN THE U.S. TODAY !

ISRAELI &-OR JEWISH "RACISM" CAN ALSO BE FOUND, THOUGH NOT AS RAMPANT, IN THE S[H]EMITIC-JEWISH, "SEPHARDIC-JEWISH" &-OR "SPANISH"(MEDITERRANEAN, NORTH-AFRICAN &-OR MIDDLE-EASTERN 'BROWN-BRONZE')--JEWISH COMMUNITY; BOTH WORLD-WIDE & IN ISRAEL TODAY !

**I'M GENETICALLY OF MIXED-RACE-"JEWISH" BLOOD: MY MOTHER IS JAPHETIC-SHEMITIC--"JEWISH"; WHILE MY FATHER IS SHEMITIC-JAPHETIC WITH SOME PATERNAL HAMITIC-BLOOD !

Point well taken, Michael. I did not to mean that all that hold to KJV-onlyism were like these people. I've just experienced this kind of attitude from this kind of people. You're right. I was just pretty enraged at the attitude.

Thanks for checking me! God bless to you too!

When I Read About This Independent Autonomous "Free-Will" Baptist Church Matter In The Local Newspaper--I Immediately Knew It Was A "FISH-STORY" For FODDER Against ALL Independent, Autonomous "BAPTIST" CHURCHES--Especially ALL Independent Autonomous "FREE WILL 'BAPTIST' " CHURCHES !

It's good to hear from someone who knows God's Word. One race...either you believe that from God's Word, "True KJV Christian," or you believe in evolution.

A person's a person, no matter what color or country of origin.
Yet the quote you gave, though it purports to present the proper color blind position, carefully notes Williamson's race, (irrelevant to those genuinely color blind) while simultaneously being critical of others who also cannot regard a person as simply "a person, no matter what color or country of origin."

Southern Baptists examine role in slavery

"Southern Baptists and other Baptists remain at arm’s length from one another over the conflict: Northerners believed God wanted them to eradicate slavery. Southerners believed God wanted them to own slaves — and that the Yankees had become heretics for trying to free them.

"The Rev. Chris Williamson, pastor of Strong Tower Bible Church, a nondenominational, multiracial congregation in Franklin, agreed history affects how he views Southern Baptists today.

"He’s heard their apologies. But he wonders if those are just words, especially when he sees Christians who fly the Confederate flag or who talk about throwing illegal immigrants out of the country.

"“There are some Southern Baptists that, when I hear them speak, especially on matters of immigration, they sound just like their ancestors sounded when they had pro-slavery arguments,” said Williamson, who is African-American."

A person's a person, no matter what color or country of origin.

Why was the SBC founded upon the enslavement of those with darker skin coloring -- an "inferior race"?

Were these Baptists mental midgets? Or is the Bible text that unclear? Or were they merely selfish white folk?

In any case, the largest denomination has a bewitched beginning, a PR disaster from which they can never recover.

Good point!

And what if the chap is sent on detached duty to South Africa and comes home with a dark tan? Would his fiancee throw him over, or wait till he turns white again?

Leave them alone.

If you knew Christ you would know that any true church is Christ's congregation.

Christ does not bar the doors of his true church to ANY of his blood bought children.

However, you are correct, it is evidently THEIR church and not Christ's.

Christ says:
"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."

Personally, I think the fact that this church is a "Freewill Baptist Church" and denies the doctrines of grace is a larger biblical problem than some members' views against miscegenation. Whatever happened to freedom of association, which up until the 1960's, Christians held to and had biblical reasons for doing so? Did the Bible change? Did people all of a sudden get a clue in the 1960's (and in BJU's case - the year 2000) about what the bible REALLY teaches? Or has the Church compromised important teachings in the scriptures because of political correctness? The fact that so many Christians are up in arms about this is a perfect example of straining in a gnat and swallowing a camel. And as far as God's Church being one building, it is spiritually, but not physically. There there are many different bodies of Christ all over the world. If this were a Black or Korean congregation discouraging miscegenation, would anyone give a flying fig? Yeah, didn't think so.

Clearly the Washington Post has made this a racial issue, and apparently sucessfully. I am trying to avoid 'pick your favorite topic from this slanted article.' But its easy to see that is the choice with most emotion packed 'news stories.' Papist (those who follow the Pope of Rome) commentors seem to find it useful to try and establish common ground as they have on other threads. Aye jpw?

It seems to me this local sectary was trying to avoid giving the Media particulars. They mentioned concern over the couples special music, they then appeared to reason? from their present understanding, how to avoid what then followed most likely the effects of the music on the assembly. Lacking knowledge of what was happening on a number of fronts, it would seem they continued in a wrong direction in order to address the greater issue of idolatrous worship.
My take from observation regarding false doctrine resulting in idolatrous worship. Works for Papal Rome either way.

Considering large 'Christian' institutions like Bob Jones University held a no interracial dating policy up until the year 2000, its reasonable that the Body of Christ today would examine the issue. I would encourage you to consider that the Church is ONE building

What!?!? Did I read this article right? I cannot believe this still exists today and in a church! These people are not Christians but evil wicked racists. Christians are to be Christ-like. We all are related and come from Adam and Eve. Rd. verse Acts 17:36 'one blood'. God have mercy on that 'church.'
