Predominantly White Baptist Church In Mississippi Refuses To Marry Black Couple – Video

Just two days before their scheduled wedding, Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson were forced to change venues after the Rev. Stan Weatherford told them that some church members were uncomfortable with the black couple getting married in the  predominantly white church  First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs, Mississippi.

The 150-year-old church hasn’t had any black couples married there in modern times.

Mississippi Baptist Convention Executive Director the Rev. Jim Futral said what happened was “unfortunate“:  “It’s  not reflective of the spirit of the Lord and  Mississippi Baptists,”  Futral said. “It’s just a step backward. … It’s a sad thing.”

(feinging surprise) Racism and Homophobia both in the Baptist Church and in Mississippi.  It just can’t be!

  1. Racism is alive and UNWELL in America. Members of the baptist church should be very proud. And yes, I condemn all baptist. Because members of other baptist churches should demand that their ministers come forward and condemn this bigoted church.
