White members will not allow Black couple to marry at their church

Yes it is 2012, we have an African American President of the United States, African American men and women have made progress and contributed but to this country. However, even now “good Christian folk” still can’t manage to hide their racist hearts.

Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson are not members of the First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs, Miss. but they have been regular visitors. They were planning to get married at the church last Saturday, only to be notified the day before their wedding was cancelled at the church.

Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson were looking forward to saying “I do” in the First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs, Miss. on July 21. But the day before their Big Day, their pastor told them their wedding had been cancelled.

Fox 6 in Alabama reports that the couple had booked the church and distributed invitations only to find out that the church’s congregation had decided that the Wilsons, an African American couple, could not tie the knot in their church.

“The church congregation had decided no black could be married at that church, and that if he went on to marry her, then they would vote [the pastor] out the church,” Charles Wilson told Fox.

The pastor did marry the couple as planned at a different location.
