    If they won’t, they’re so wrong. I doubt if a Southern Baptist church would deny a racially mixed wedding, though.

    Now Westboro Baptist, that’s another story, more like a horror story.

    Only if they are heterosexual.

    no that is not true…. it’s not common but it is not barred either…. anyone can join and participate in a Southern Baptist Church… mixed race or not… :/

    If you are a part of a mixed race couple (or know of one) that went to a Southern Baptist Church and were ostracized for your (their) relationship… then I would have to say that the Spirit of God wasn’t in that Church to begin with as true Christians don’t care about a silly thing like race.

    I don’t think they would. Not sure though.

    In the past this was true (although there are black Baptist churches). It was part of the Jim Crow/post slavery/pre civil rights Old South racist culture.

    It’s probably still true in a handful of individual churches.
