As I've mentioned before on my last post, racism in American churches is one of my big pet peeves. The link I've given refers to the attempts of a Kentucky church to ban interracial couples from their membership for no other reason than their interracial makeup.
This afternoon, a new article indicated that the church's pastor will throw out the ruling, in spite of its being voted on by the membership. While I'm not sure how the original vote came about since churches from a Baptist background have different constitutions that rule such things, I have to at least applaud the minister's choice to do this after having consulted his association. However, it does beg the question of where the minister's opinion against the vote was when it was actually taken. Of course, this could've been a church in which a few laymen control everything that goes on. It will be interesting to see how long said pastor remains in his current position.
