Mine and Jamison's lovely wives went to a ladies' prayer meeting last night.
They had some food and talked and such, then all sat around together and talked about their issues, sharing what their needs were and such.
During the discussion, they began to talk about what their kids watch on TV and how so much is garbage.
Being of good social conscience, one of the ladies mentioned such shows as Will and Grace which promotes a homosexual lifestyle. There were mentions of Brokeback Mountain and the like.
But, then came a real zinger. One of the ladies mentioned that her daugher was watching a cartoon, the name of which was not mentioned. Suddenly, she asked her daughter to turn off the TV and not watch that show. She then asked her daughter, "Do you know why I asked you to turn it off?"
Her daughter responded, "Yeah, cuz that black boy liked that white girl."
The lady then said that was right!
This blows my mind.
Can Christians really be Christians if they think inter-racial dating/marriage is a sin?
Rachel said the room got very quiet after this comment, so obviously, there was disagreement.
I find this attitude between blacks and whites disheartening.
