Pike Co. church overturning interracial couple ban

A church's decision to ban an interracial couple from its congregation has been overturned. Members of the Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church met Saturday to take a vote on the ban. Last Sunday, some members of the church voted to prohibit interracial couples from joining their church. After learning of the church's decision, the National Association of Free Will Baptists issued a statement Thursday saying, "It is our understanding that steps are being taken by the church in question to reverse its decision. We encourage the church to follow through with this action. Leaders from the local conference and state association in Kentucky are working with the church to resolve this matter."
