The Associated Press is reporting that a small, all-white church in rural Kentucky on Sunday voted to ban interracial couples from joining the congregation. According to the report, the church approved a resolution that says it does not "condone interracial marriage." The church's former pastor denies that the resolution was racially motivated. However, the church's secretary disagrees. He maintains that the resolution came about after his daughter visited the church this summer with her boyfriend from Africa.
