Racism Lives On

Relevant Magazine and Rod Dreher both point to this story:
A Jackson couple had their wedding rehearsal last week, two days before their scheduled big day at the Crystal Springs church where they were planning to get married.
But the couple's dream of exchanging vows in the church they had been attending was dashed when the church pastor relayed to them that some members had complained about the black couple getting married in the predominantly white First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs.
Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson said it was devastating having to move their wedding to another church only days before the July 21 wedding.
Galatians 3:26-28 states:
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
The pathetic members First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs who complained must have a translation that leaves out those verses.
