US church bans interracial marriage

A small church in Kentucky, USA has banned interracial marriages after a long time member expressed her desire to marry a Zimbabwean-born man.

The small congregation, which usually hosts about 40 members each Sunday, held the vote after Stella Harville brought her fiancé, Ticha Chikuni, to church with her.

The pastor put forth a recommendation saying that while all members were welcome at the church, it did not "condone" interracial marriage, and that any interracial couples would not be received as members or allowed to participate in worship services.

The Harville family has formally requested the congregation to reconsider the interracial ban.
