Nullified



Stories like this bug me anyway..Would bug me anyway, but in 2011, so called "Post -Racial America..they bug me immensely....We are supposed to be past this....sadly..we and by WE, I mean all of us...All of us so called advanced species of the human race should be beyond this.


The pastor at a small Kentucky church says he has nullified a vote by parishioners that banned interracial couples from the church. I first heard this story over the weekend...I purposely waited to see what the outcome was going to be.

"As far as I'm concerned and the church is concerned, this case will be closed as of tomorrow," Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church pastor Stacy Stepp said on Saturday, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. "We will...get back on the right track and continue to win souls for the Lord."


Pastor Stepp, who said he opposed the vote, declared it null and void after approaching the Sandy Valley Conference of Free Will Baptists, which consists of 13 Pike County churches.

The conference met on Saturday and released a statement saying it had reviewed the situation and concluded that the vote was of no effect because it, "was not carried out in accordance with" Robert's Rules of Order, (Is that all?)according to the Lexington Herald-Leader, and would therefore require a change in the church bylaws.

The Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church voted nine to six on Nov. 27 to ban interracial couples from church services or functions, with the exception of funerals.(Are you kidding me?)

Stella Harville, 24, and her fiance Ticha Chikuni, 28, are the couple that prompted the church's actions. Harville is white and Chikuni is black. The couple met at Georgetown College in Kentucky, where both were students, and they plan to marry in July 2012.


You know ,my question is...Why did there have to be a vote in the first place?  Here are two people who come into a house of worship...A place to worship a God, who I hope and believe loves us all, regardless of what we look like...and these so called "Good Christians " voted to ban them... Is there any wonder why so many people don't even bother to go to church on Sunday?  It's hypocrisy like this...
