Funny how only one of these articles points out the fact that the preacher is black..
If he had been white, it's pretty clear that would have been in size 40, bold font in the headline.

Wow, what a racist shiatbag. He should be strung up out front of the Church and they should burn a crucifix to shame him.

Jesus said:  "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.The next day he took out two denariiand gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.'

While talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people.He said to them: "You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile. But God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean.

What's the over/under on how many people in here jump straight to assuming the preacher's a white male?

Not that it makes it any better or less racist, but said pastor is an African American female.

The pastor that wrote this was a black female.

It had nothing to do with her being racist.  It had to do with the fact that churches are businesses and they want people with money coming in the doors.  Guess who those people are...

"We are continuing to work to bring our racial demographic pendulum back to mid-line," she continued in the email. "So we would like to ask that only white people be on the front doors."

This pretty much summarizes why affirmative action shiat based around the idea of quotas is a dumb-shiat idea.  I... I'm not really sure that we really need to go over this again, as a nation we realized this kind of shiat was stupid and dropped the quotas from our universities and so on in like the mid '90s.

Then, a church being 20 years behind the rest of the world on race issues actually makes them relatively progressive, doesn't it?  Most of them are 150 to 1000 years out of date.

It is possible she meant something along the lines of "We already have a lot of black faces greeting people lets get some of you white folks out there too" . But that's REALLY not what came across, she ends up sounding a lot like Strom Thurmond.
 
2013-09-04 12:42:11 AM
To deny, even if only through discouragement, fellowship with other Christians because of 'demographics' is second only to forbidding children to believe in Jesus, when it comes to farking up in the eyes of God.

TFA:
Pennycooke then acknowledges the request is a "sensitive situation" and said quality trumps quantity.
"We would rather have less greeters on the front door if it means that the few that we have will represent us the best," Pastor Pennycooke wrote.

Maybe if you want to represent your church the best, you should have an even mix of whites, blacks and other races (if possible) at the door to show you are diverse.

This thread is (so far) pretty high-minded and diverse with opinion. Kudos, Fark.
I came here to say that I'd be appalled if  my pastor tried to tell anyone in the congregation they weren't fit to be there or serve God in the manner they chose.

Then I saw the picture of the pastor in question.

I'm trying to imagine a mostly black church in a mostly white neighborhood trying to achieve a more balanced diversity in the congregation?

/switch gears
I don't think it's about money as one poster above said. Funny when churches engage in this kind of activity looking for white people it's greed. But when schools or govt entities target black people for entrance, it's in the name of social justice.

fark tokenism. A real church wouldn't even think about their "racial demographics." It wouldn't occur to them, because they'd be busy ministering to the sick, addicted, lonely, depressed, broken, and hopeless. They might not even have their own building.

Either way, according to Miriam Websters new no.2 definition, its RACISM!!!11@1  So, if you want to open a churches chicken franchise in either Phoenix or Atlanta and you choose Atlanta because you want to make money, you sir are a motherfarking racist, might as well find your nearest Klan chapter and get your stupid hat.  Racist!

I'm finding that "controversial" in the news is another way of saying "someone's being a real dick."

In this story it can't mean "debatable" because the pastor apologized within 24 hours. So there is no controversy at all; he's just a dick!

Why, because it's not common for a black woman to be racist?  Are you kidding me, they are the most racist subclass of people I've come across.  Hillbillies in the back woods are more tolerant.

how about an alternate headline: Church uses false advertising to get rich white folk to come in and have a seat, before they realize that its not a 'whites only' church.

/Of course the biggest racists would just turn around and leave while remarking about how the black devil has taken over the lords house.

Hey; me again. The vessel known as "mofa" is curled up in a fetal position in the corner of his kitchen making strange gurgling noises.

This shiat is really pissing me off, and I'm dusting off my smiting shoes right now. Fix this ASAP, capisce? You don't want to see me when I'm angry. Just ask anyone from Sodom or Gomorrah, or the Atlanteans, or the Incas. Oh, that's right! You can't!
