Sue for what? A church is private, they can allow/disallow anyone they like, simple as that.

As for the handling, the church could have told the couple no long before they spent and planned on getting married there, that's the only issue I have with it.

That was totally tacky of the church and the church members. Bet these people dropped donations into their collection plate. What a low snub.or biggotry or snobbery.

I am betting that the couple had wanted to marry in that church soley for the publicity (since there had never been a black wedding there). I doubt that they were regular attendees...I just have a feeling in my gut about this. It might have had nothing to do with the fact that they were black...but you'll never hear that reported in the media.

Why would someone put up a topix like this extremely isolated case. I have lived in prodominently black areas before and can say without doubt it is safer for a black living in a white neighborhood than a white male living in a black neighborhood.
