WOW this is such a shocker!!! Kentucky is almost as tollerant as Berkley Ca. I can't see why Kentucky would do such a thing?

Now Grant, thats not a fair characterization of the entire state of KY. Kentucky didn't make this decision, it was a little church in the middle of the eastern Kentucky mountains. The farther you go east of I-75, the more backward you get. Kentucky is a great state and although not as liberal minded as Berkley, it is a great place to live and raise a family....white or black.

IMHO, it's really no one's business but the church's anyway.

^That's why churches shouldn't get tax deductible contributions. Because what they do is nobody's business.

Yeah. No one should care about discrimination if its done behind close doors.(face palm).

It's the church's right to discriminate however they see fit. Marriage is a personal issue, not a government one. Get government out of marriage altogether and it solves all sorts of problems. This of all the queers out in Cali or wherever else. To each his own and it's none of my business. They should be able to go to any church that will marry them and be done with it. No tax benefits, no government involvement. All marriages should be the same way.

Obviously the pastor of this church is a quasi Jeramiah Wright in his thinking. Thank God most people are smart enough to understand the pastor of this church isnt represtenting Jesus when he makes decisions like this. People who have an axe to grind about christianity will always be able to find articles like this to smear or demean the faith. But you will never see them posting the incredible things good churches are doing throughout the world and how we are reaching out with food banks clothing digging wells and supplying much needed medical care all across the globe. Let's focus on some racist guy who cloaks himself as a follower of God when any normal thinking person can clearly see he is blinded by his own human thinking and clearly does not represent christianity when it comes to race.

In this country, you have the right to be an a-hole. As much as I hate a-holes, I stand behind their right to be one
