Racism - not just for politics
Rev. John Stevens, to his credit, resigned after the vote by the small Baptist Missionary Alliance-affiliated church. He estimated over 80 percent of the church was against black membership.
Rev. Stevens recognizes that Christ died for everyone, and that He associated and especially loved those that were cast out.
A church Kristen and I are intimately familiar with denied hiring a youth minister six years ago because his wife was black. How often does this happen, yet doesn't make the news?
With examples of this, Senator George "macaca" Allen, Senator Conrad Burns, and Tramm "blacks can't swim" Hudson, is there any doubt that racism is alive and well? True gains have been made with time and new generations, but just because something is under the surface doesn't mean it's gone.
