I grow up in North Carolina, and I was raised to believe that God was a white man, but at least they tried to disguise it then. This just shows how baffling it is that descendants of former slaves still embrace such nonsense. It seems that people of color need to become more financially viable, instead of dedicating their lives to this European God, since they, obviously, are seen by this religion, and other businesses(remember Abercrombie) as being a detriment to profit. It's not about anything but money, it seems.

As the woman said, lying to people about what's on the inside is not the way to get people into church.
It's almost like it's a business. Can you imagine all the Wal-Mart greeters getting an email saying whites only? And some say we get our moral compass from the church. At least corporations are not supposed to show racism or sexism, but churches do and say what they want. Crap, look at the book of Mormon.
Telling people that the creator of the universe is in the church is the first lie, I guess. lol
It is a business, pretending to represent some fictional character, whom they have convince the gullible, is creator of the universe. Tax exempt.
Up until 1978, the Mormon church was blatantly racist.
I don't see this as much about being seen by the religion as a detriment to profit. I think it's more about the minister in question. This is more about racism and a sense of self inferiority.
But I agree. it is time for people of color to become more financially viable, but also to redefine their own self worth and break free of the racist teachings of the past that has poisoned their minds.
I guess the devil made her do it.
I should point out that you probably shouldn't believe everything you see on the internet.
Yeah. Human devils. lol
Thanks for reminding me, but there is not much reason to doubt the veracity of this story. It was also on the home page of Yahoo! and reported in the Huffington Post. I'm going to assume this is a reasonably true story as it's not that unbelievable....unless it is proven otherwise.

Christianity (and organized religion in general) is and has always been inherently racist! In other news, water is wet! And coming up tonight, airborne objects fall!
