    But But But I'm not a racist......

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/45499321.../#.TtgN7fJvCYE
    voted to ban interracial couples from joining its flock,
    The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, said he is not racist and called the matter an "internal affair."

    "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," said Thompson, the church's former pastor who stepped down earlier this year. "That's what this is being portrayed as, but it is not."
    Yep, I love that it was Kentucky as well.

        As my ha'ole brother said, "You know how THEY are always after OUR women? Well we showed them, we stole THEIR women!"

        from the link:
        "If he's not racist, what is this?" Harville said of Thompson.

        Racist, hell, I'd wager that they really believe in the bible and logically they therefore should believe in human sacrifice:

        Then the Spirit of the LORD came on Jephthah. He crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from there he advanced against the Ammonites. 30 And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD: “If you give the Ammonites into my hands, 31 whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the LORD’s, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”

        32 Then Jephthah went over to fight the Ammonites, and the LORD gave them into his hands. 33 He devastated twenty towns from Aroer to the vicinity of Minnith, as far as Abel Keramim. Thus Israel subdued Ammon.

        34 When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of timbrels! She was an only child. Except for her he had neither son nor daughter. 35 When he saw her, he tore his clothes and cried, “Oh no, my daughter! You have brought me down and I am devastated. I have made a vow to the LORD that I cannot break.”

        36 “My father,” she replied, “you have given your word to the LORD. Do to me just as you promised, now that the LORD has avenged you of your enemies, the Ammonites. 37 But grant me this one request,” she said. “Give me two months to roam the hills and weep with my friends, because I will never marry.”

        38 “You may go,” he said. And he let her go for two months. She and her friends went into the hills and wept because she would never marry. 39 After the two months, she returned to her father, and he did to her as he had vowed. And she was a virgin.

          Hmmmm, As long as I've been a believer I've never even heard of this. Thanks for posting. It will make a very interesting study.

              They've been allowing an ogre to come to church all this time, but now she can't bring a black guy? That ain't right.

                            We used to have a lot of arguments about religion at our school between Catholics and Jehova's Witnesses.
                            It was funny, because consistently the Jehovas Witnesses knew the Bible inside-out and the Catholics didn't. The level of difference in how much they actually knew about their own faith was staggering. And in the context of an argument, hilarious.
