Seriously, this couple were regular attendees at this church and had everything planned out and then right before the wedding they were denied?

No, this is faker than that lesbian in Lincoln, Nebraska.

That pastor is a pussy. He should have stood up against the bigots in his congregation and if they voted him out, move to a church that isn't bigoted. He's just as guilty.

And Te'Andrea needs to drop the first three characters in her name. Ugh.

"After months of planning, the newlyweds say they had no choice but to go through with the wedding at the new location, but they still can't understand why a church would ban their wedding because of race."

I have a hypothesis: because they're bigots.

Anyone can attend any church, but they weren't members of the church... and I bet they would never be, as long as those bigots were there.

To give you a little perspective, they don't want to openly advertise their racist feelings so, it's fine, the darkies can sit in the back of the church, we'll even accept your tithes when the collection plate comes along. Sit back, shut up and enjoy the word.

When you start asking for services of the church (weddings, baptisms, funerals, different boards, etc.) that implies that the church and it's congregation is accepting you. Thats when some people have a problem and will go to person of the cloth and say 'we can't have the darkies pollute our Lllly white congregation, they can't marry here, what if they get greasy fried chicken fingerprints on the alter?'

I bet they were passive attendees and didn't get anyone powerful enough within the congregation on their side. They were faces in the crowd for a while and expected since they've been going there for a while they could get service there. Not the case apparently.

no.

They attended regularly, and I'm assuming they were mostly tolerated... Until they wanted to be married, then the congregation showed their true colours.

Anyone who doesn't understand this has obviously been lucky enough to not spend any real time around southern baptists. I attended several southern baptist churches as a child and the ones I experienced were full of back stabbing two faced hypocrites. According to my mother, who for some reason still attends, they still are.

This.

That's the culture of the Southern Baptist church. They're mostly run by the women, who spend their lives competing and judging on every aspect of life -- fashion, religion, relationships, anything. The biggest competition is in how well they control their husbands.

They're like little sparrows in lamp-shade hats, always pecking at each other to maintain social hierarchy.

The membership clause is how the church will weasel out of it.

If it was a "small minority" of the members of the church against it, why did the minister cave into them? Something smells here and it isn't the fish course served at the reception.

^THIS. and by the way, it isn't just the Baptists. Growing up I attended a First Church of the Nazarene (I think it was an offshoot of the Methodist church not for sure) and those old folks that were there every Sunday morning, evening and Wednesday nights saying "Amen" and talking about tolerance would cringe at the sight of a black person.
I, as a child, never understood this and made the mistake of asking my grandparents why this was like that. I was told in so many words that "the N*&)ers needed to learn their place and stay out of regular folks church. And this was back in the 1980's

If negroes and negresses are allowed to marry, then what comes next? Almost certainly dancing. And wherever dancing is found, the teaching of heliocentrism is sure to follow. No, it might not always be the "popular" thing, but it is incumbent upon the moral community to make sure that we do not stray from the Biblical principles that have kept this nation the greatest in the Universe.
 
2012-07-28 11:26:30 AM
To those screaming FAKE...the minister of the church supports the story. That his congregation refused to allow it. That if he did it ANYWAY, they'd vote him out of his job.

So...seems legit to me when the pastor of the friggen church says so too.

Shameful though.

"colours?" WTF, are you British or something?

Everything was arranged. Invitations were printed. The day before the wedding they claim the pastor just out of the blue noticed they were black.

Sorry, I'm gonna need a little more evidence than that.

It might be a more credible story if the couple were mixed race, but both of them were black. Need more information on this story.

Thats the funny thing. they're all nice and lovey dovey to your face, and they had been accepting of the tithes thinking that they were 'in', that's why I bet this couple thought they could set it up. The pastor being in his bubble was blind sided by the congregation and hopes this blows over but his offerings and his attendance will go up from this. Just goes to show that It's not the guy up at the alter that runs the place it's the crowd he preaches to.

Yup. Southern Baptist is denomination that is rife with two-faced backstabbing.

They'll talk about how alcohol is sinful and evil and wicked. Try to ask about the wedding feast at Canaan where Jesus turned water into wine, and they'll tell you he made non-alcoholic wine since Jesus never sinned and wine is sinful, and the Bible is inerrant. Thus, Jesus made non-alcoholic wine.

They love to say they are "sola scriptura": going by the Bible and only the Bible and nothing else. However, they then talk about the Trinity, a doctrine NOT found in the New Testament itself that wasn't articulated until a couple centuries later, while also not having Bishops (never mind the office of Bishop is explicitly mentioned in scripture, in 1 Timothy). Basically, they use "sola scriptura" as a way to ignore any Ecumenical Councils they disagreed with.

I was raised in a Southern Baptist household, I was one (at least nominally) until my Sophomore year of College.

I was thrown out of a Southern Baptist Church when I was 20. I was regularly volunteering at my Church, helping every Saturday to work on the sound system and the computer (they had one beat up old PC in the office), and help with general handyman/janitorial tasks around the Church. As I was leaving, I mentioned to the Pastor that I was going back to Campus instead of Home because I had a Dungeons and Dragons game that night.

Oooh boy. I might as well have told him I was a baby-sacrificing Satan worshiper. He flipped out on me and demanded that I not only go, but I bring in all my D&D books to be burned and that I repent in front of the congregation at services tomorrow morning. That or don't come back until I'm ready to do that. He told me I was going straight to Hell.

I didn't go back, ever, to any Church.

When I got married to Mrs. MFAWG v 1.0, we picked a picturesque little chapel that neither one of has had ever been in.

I grew up in this.
I am willing to bet one or both of the couple royally ticked off one of the harpies in charge so their falling back on, "but ... but...TRADITION!!"
This line right here speaks volumes:
" This had never been done before here, so it was setting a new precedent, and there are those who reacted to that because of that," said Weatherford. "

They will claim it's not racism but upholding some jacked up "unbroken chain" of faith or some such shiat when it's all just the usual SB backstabbing and pecking order crap.

Also I don't doubt there is a healthy dose of "Them People" involved to. they just were cowardly and hid it.
