Know your enemy

I’m sure you all heard about the Baptist church in Kentucky that barred interracial couples from membership. I was too busy to post when the story broke, but it festered in my head for days. Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church is a stain upon our nation and does not deserve continued patronage. They actually voted to bar interracial couples from becoming members of their church and participating in church services.The city should send a message. Revoke it’s tax exempt status. Re-zone the church out of business. Bulldoze the building and burn the remains. Forever bar the nine members who voted in favor of this travesty from becoming members of any other church. In fact, boycott their businesses, boycott the businesses of the people who employ them. Do whatever it takes to show these hypocrites that their intolerance is unacceptable, and do whatever it takes to make this right. The people are our enemies. Their prejudice is a disgrace to our nation, and their actions are inconsistent with Baptist theology and Christianity. They are frauds and deserve no respect, no consideration, and most importantly, no quarter. Jesus was a black man (or at least brown)… Remember?

Former pastor Melvin Thompson was the instigator. He won’t fess up to his own racism and hypocrisy.

"I am not racist. I will tell you that. I am not prejudiced against any race of people, have never in my lifetime spoke evil" about a race, Thompson said earlier this week in a brief interview. "That's what this is being portrayed as, but it is not."

No, pastor Melvin Thompson is no racist. He just introduced a measure that bars interracial couples from joining the church and participating in church services. I don’t see the problem here… Is it still legal to tar and feather liars?
