An eastern Kentucky church under a firestorm of criticism since members voted to bar mixed-race couples from joining the congregation overturned that decision Sunday, saying it welcomes all believers.

She brought her boyfriend Ticha Chikuni, who is black and from Africa, with her, and the couple sang during the service.

Stella’s father, Dean, said it was only a few weeks later when he was approached by Melvin Thompson, the church’s former pastor who stepped down earlier this year, and informed that his daughter and her now-fiance would no longer be able to sing at Gulnare Free Will Baptist.

Here’s a story that will have you double-checking your calendar to see what decade it is.

A church in rural Kentucky recently voted to ban interracial couples from becoming members.

“I am not prejudiced against any race of people, have never in my lifetime spoke evil about a race.” What, if not racial prejudice, he has against interracial couples, he did not clarify.

Unsurprisingly, the decision divided the community, as some were upset by the decision and, presumably, that fact that it was an issue put to vote in the first place.At the heart of the decision stands 24-year-old Stella Harville.Her father, Dean Harville, is a longtime member of and secretary for church who has come out strongly against the newfound regulation.Back when I co-work Swirling, we created a list of interracial-friendly cities and states, and some of them were not really a surprise–Los Angeles and pretty much all of California, parts of Texas, some fly over states, and swaths of regions on the East Coast and South. So today I thought to myself, So I’m off building the MASTER IR-FRIENDLY LIST of CITIES, COUNTIES, NEIGHBORHOODS and TOWNSHIPS that you can feel free to pursue employment, real estate, and vacation spots and know for certain that no one will throw stones, harass you, or otherwise make you feel miserable.It’s also an awesome list for the single girls and gents who are contemplating relocation. I’m working with the folks at Interracial to create some sort of info graphic or interactive map because we both just love you guys to pieces. Look at the list and feel free to confirm, deny, vehemently debate, agree, disagree, or add your city, county, state or township along with a reason or two why it’s a good place for us to plant some roots.Even more depressing was the vote’s results: 9-6 against interracial couples.
