<quoted text>You liberals don't want religion in schools, state buildings, federal buildings, on our money, but you want to drag any Christian to the gallows for not going public with his opinion. You are the most idiotic fools I have come across. My part of the country does not want your lopsided, two-faced testimony representing the morality of Christians. Go worship satan, muhammed, or a negro and shut the f*ck up about those who don't feel as you do.
You hand-wringing fools are hypocrites of the highest order.
You God-haters are creaming your jeans that a stupid bitch and her negro gave you a soapbox.
you are typical white trash, racist, christian, un educated southern idiot. all christians are stupid fools

Real Christians are not racist. The problem is that many people get hypocrites and Christians confused way too often.

It is sad. I hope they see their sin and ask for forgiveness - They need to get out and get exposed to the rest of the world! Jesus was color blind and he loves us all!

Miriam and Aaron against Moses' Ethiopian wife; Miriam punished by God with leprosy
Numbers 12:1-10

And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. And they said, "Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us?" And the LORD heard it.

Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the surface of the earth. And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.

And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth. And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all my house.WIth him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches, and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?

And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them, and he departed. And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle, and behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow, and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and behold, she was leprous.

My God is only a loving God and nothing less. The beautiful thing about this country is that we have a great diversity of people who have love, experience, wisdom, grace, and culture to share with the rest of us. If a certain belief from a certain former pastor and its congregation does not coincide with what a loving God really is then I say this to you: My God is a loving God. You can borrow my beliefs and always find comfort in knowing that you will always be welcomed here regardless of whom you choose to love.

Does God put a color to a spirit? I don't think so. The only judgement on this church that matters is the one coming from God the Creator. Would the church feel differently if they were just friends and coming to church together? A true Christian should not look at the color of someones skin. Truthfull wrote:" love them because regardless of what you want, they are our brothers and sisters," they may be brothers and sisters thru creation but are they brothers and sisters "in" Christ?

Let me be the 1st to say thank you Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church. You are probably all related and never get out of the "holler". You people are what gives the rest of us Kentuckians a bad name. I work in Ohio and get picked on from co-workers because of things like this. You need to get an education, socialize outside your family, get out of that "holler", and learn to read the Bible. Shame on you.
But what if they they were an interracial homosexual couple?

The REAL "racists" are the ones who are set on CHANGING God's original design! God created different races, man and woman of each, so that they could pro-create. Not agreeing with interracial marriage does not make you a racist. I do not agree with it because I LOVE the original design of my God. It is HIS design, not OURS!!! Who are we, as mere mortals, to think it's okay to change HIS perfect creation? If you support race mixing, then YOU are the racist! God's original design is good and PERFECT, just like the Bible says in Genesis.

I think the point has been made. Nine folks in a tiny church in a tiny town in the mountains of Kentucky made a bad decision. That one decision by those nine people in no way represents the views of religion, Christianity, church, or Free Will Baptists as a whole. People make bad decisions all the time. The decision was wrong and will most definitely be corrected. If one decision by a whopping big body of nine people is enough for some to use as "ammunition" against all these groups, then it sounds like the real problem lies elsewhere. Ignore ignorant and uneducated people and go on with life. Apparently they are being set straight

Who cares who or what they are? If ANY two people choose to be in a relationship, my God bless them with a lifetime of love and happiness. It is not my place to push my fears or thoughts on any other person. If it is wrong in God's eye, then they will have to answer for it not me.

It's a little bitty church in the hills of Pike County, Kentucky with like 40 to 50 attendees. Why should the rest of the world care about what some backwards hillbillies who claim to be Christians in a dump like this do? I don't agree with the churches decision but those hicks do not matter in the real world.

The Church belongs to no one person but God.
It is not their Church, if it is then God is not, and will not be there.

If you don't like the views of the church. Don't attend. It's very simple, people. Now, move along... Nothing to see here.
