    I'd love to unearth each of their family trees. Can't be all pure lily white.

    I bet they still believe in the Curse of Ham or black people were put on earth by God as "Beasts of Burden" to serve the rest of the world too. Yes, I've heard of churches that teach such vile filth from the pulpit. SMH

    Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church: Kentucky Congregation Overturns Ban On Interracial Couples
    PIKEVILLE, Ky. — An eastern Kentucky church under a firestorm of criticism since members voted to bar mixed-race couples from joining the congregation overturned that decision Sunday, saying it welcomes all believers.

    Stacy Stepp, pastor of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Pike County, told The Associated Press that the vote by nine people last week was declared null and void after it was determined that new bylaws can't run contrary to local, state or national laws. He said the proposal was discriminatory, therefore it couldn't be adopted.

    Stepp said about 30 people who attended church services voted on a new resolution that welcomes "believers into our fellowship regardless of race, creed or color."

    The issue came up at the tiny all-white Appalachian church after the daughter of church secretary Dean Harville visited over the summer with her boyfriend, who is from Africa, and the two sang for the congregation.

    Harville said he was approached in August by Melvin Thompson, the church member who crafted the resolution to bar mixed-race couples, and was told that his daughter and her boyfriend were no longer allowed to sing at the church.

    Thompson has said he is not racist and called the matter an "internal affair."

    Stepp said the Sandy Valley Conference of Free Will Baptists declared the vote on Thompson's resolution null and void during a meeting on Saturday.

    He said he told church members on Sunday about the decision and proposed a resolution to promote "peace, love and harmony."

    He said the resolution to welcome all believers passed with a unanimous vote.

    Cute pic.

    I'm from Kentucky and assure you we are not all that backwards. There are still a lot of dumb shits around though. My sister is in a interracial relationship and you would be amazed how many times she has to stop someone from saying something hateful.

    My guidance counselor in high school told me that I should stay away from black boys because they liked to prey on white girls. She said they knew how to manipulate us and just wanted to use us for sex. I was told if I dated a black guy, I would spend the rest of my life wishing I would have listened.

    Stupid bitch.

    Yay yay! Thank you! I am so happy. I met him at a mutual friends party in 2009, which was the same year he started work in the USA. I'm happy. We're happy. We HATE, hate. His ma, grandmas and grandpa, sister, family and his friends in Thuringia like me. His mom shed tears when I dropped her off at the airport when she left the states. She doesn't speak English, and I speak probably 10% German.
    No problemo with my family either. Interracial relationships go back generations in my family. I'm mixed but in the USA, you are what you look like.
    My point is, there are different races and religions on this Earth. Shut up and love each other. Damn!
