rejected a wedding because the couple was black. Yes, kids, racism still exists in America -- especially in the South. This is not news.

Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson planned to hold their wedding in a predominantly white church in Mississippi that they are not members of.

They sent out the invitations to their wedding, but the day before the wedding their pastor informed them that the predominantly white members of First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs did not want a black wedding performed there.

"I wanted to make sure their wedding day was a special day," said Weatherford."

Pastor Stan Weatherford performed the wedding in another church. In response to the media attention, a few church members expressed dismay.

Church member Casey Kitchens says she knew nothing about the church's decision not to marry a black couple.

"This is a small, small group of people who made a terrible decision," Kitchens told The Clarion-Ledger. "I'm just ashamed right now that my church would do that. I can't fathom why. How unfair. How unjust. It's just wrong."

This is not the first time a segregated church in the deep south has practiced racism. And it won't be the last time.

      yep, depends on the church's policy but usually within the same denomination. your pastor would counsel you but generally you can use another church's edifice for weddings or funerals. some people's church is not big enough or doesn't have the facilities to host larger weddings or you may be out of town, use your parent's church, etc. my old church had a wedding ministry for this.

      Pastor Stan Weatherford told WLBT TV (http://bit.ly/QSNlf8 ) he was surprised when a small number of church members opposed holding the wedding at the church.

      "This had never been done before here, so it was setting a new precedent, and there are those who reacted to that because of that," said Weatherford.

      Weatherford performed the July 21 ceremony at another church.

      "I didn't want to have a controversy within the church, and I didn't want a controversy to affect the wedding of Charles and Te'Andrea. I wanted to make sure their wedding day was a special day," said Weatherford.

      WLBT reported that church officials now say they welcome any race. They plan to hold internal meetings on how to move forward.

    • Ms. Everything

      This is nothing new and hell it's Mississippi. I feel bad for the couple though, I truly do and I hope another church came forward to give them the wedding they deserve in a more welcoming and loving environment. I will say though that I can't understand the surprise, if any, that comes from this. People like to believe that all is good between the races, that things like this are more rare than what they are. The biggest discredit you can do to yourself and your children is to go on as if racism died with our grandparents and that they will be respected and treated equally no matter where they go.

      Some churches allow non members to use their facilities for a fee, but generally still require a premarital course through them.

      Lot's of "good" reasons to get married at a church you don't attend

      - most churches have tables and chairs and a reception hall w/industrial kitchen
      - most churches that allow non member marriages are beautiful inside and out
      - parents paying/demand in church marriage

      Oh and Anna yes you can. A lot of churches demand premarital counseling for members and non members alike just because the pastor does not want it on his head if he should marry a couple on a whim, however, there are many others who can be bought and will just perform the ceremony for the cash it brings in. Weddings are big business :shrugs:

Where I live now, folks will smile while saying the most racist shit you've ever heard and then keep going like it's cool. They will tell you to your face why you will have trouble finding jobs, housing, etc in this place because it's so inbred in them that they don't know anything different.

      Never heard of it.
      I think I may have messed up almost 2 years worth of hair growth by trying to color my own hair.
      That’s what happens when I’m home every day…BORED! Now my scalp is itchy. And the color didn’t even take every where. :crying:
      ---------------------

      :thinking: Try a deep conditioner. Dyeing your hair really dries it out. I would try deep conditioning and maybe even a hot oil treatment.

      I'm thinking about dyeing it but I want to do it the healthiest way possible.

      Gigi I'd rather know my enemy than find out after the knife is already in my back :shrugs: Say it to my face and I already know where we stand, say it behind my back and then I end up being your fool. From my experience the sting of blatant racism is a lot easier to deal with than the cutthroat under the table kind, but that's just me. But while I prefer it to my face if I have to experience it at all, I agree with the fact that in the south they will just kill you and that is the number 1 reason I won't move down there and prefer not to visit. Because my mouth is not to be trusted and on every trip south it's gotten me in trouble

      Lashelle try a steam treatment it may restore some moisture back into your hair and I heard it does wonderful things for the scalp :yes:

      Zoe: I'm rooting for her too :yes: Everyone came with their A-game! I watched the swim relays and the men's water polo and of course bball and volleyball. Kevin Durant is a beast! I felt bad for that yt girl that didn't qualify, her crying broke my heart.

      Zoe, yep it sure is. technically tho water is the true moisturizer & the whip seals the moisture from the water in. so, before i apply i always mist my hair with water :yes:

      @Lashelle...a good hot oil treatment to use is the Hot Six Oil. It will give you lots of moisture. I color my hair on the regular and am relaxed too so my hair needs all of the extra moisture it can get. I use that for hot oil treatment and of course have started using the whip to flat iron and keep the moisture in between.

    • pointhimout

      This isn't news. 1 - ur not members of the church 2 - in any southern state there are 3 black churches per mile, so pick another one 3 - it's Mississippi. You mean you niglets continue to live in MS? Really? You know you have the option to move to another state, right?

      I live in Mississippi and it's not as bad as people think it is. Yes, there is racism, but that's everywhere, not just Mississippi. I think this couple lives in what is called The Delta, which is a poor area of MS and probably a little backwards, too. Mississippi has come a long way...and we are progressing. You would be surprised at all the interracial couples I see on a daily basis. People used to stop and stare when they saw an interracial couple, but not anymore. It's very common now.

    • YSoSrs

      @MS E

      The Vampire Huntress Series I'm reading by L.A. Banks is ultimately about the struggle between good and evil, Heaven and Hell, angels and demons and has vampires, werewolves, and even zombies. So there is a LOT going on.

      I'm trying to get another opinion cause I think my non-belief may be making me biased against the overall story/message.

      Plus, she writes some of her characters as really "street" but it sounds forced like she doesn't really know how "street" people talk. There is also a lot of fist bumping and she throws in sex scenes on top of all the other stuff.

      I feel like it's Tyler Perry meets Zane meets that chick that writes the Anita Blake vampire stuff and I'm not sure if I'm just missing something or if the writer just is doing to much.

    • http://www.landofpure.net Fayla aka IWhipIt..WhipItRealGood:)

      MsDiva no prob! ;)

      YSO you'd need about 2 good scoop fulls depending on how much hair u have. what i do is get a bowl of water & heat it to boiling in the microwave, the i put a smaller bowl with Whip in it on top to melt it that way. once it's melted pour over hair, plastic cap, & u in there :yes:

      If it's one thing we have in the black community it's nice churches

      stop trying to be in with the white folks for everything.

      that's racist but then again so are they..

      they could have found a nice black church and not went thru this bs.

      Black people gonna learn one day...they don't like us.

      They tolerate us.

      When planning a wedding YES you may wed in churh that you are not a member of pending the approval of the Church of course. There are some that won't allow it, but many do. WHY, you ask..one less time to send the collection plate around $$$

      The total phuckery is the Pastor waiting until the week before the wedding to let them know they needed another venue-those folks complained in advance PLEASE BELIEVE(he would not have been my officiant hmp ole lilly livered cad...)

      And the couple...ummm yea...#Is that great great great grandpappy???
