The other shoe drops

All kinds of people got upset over that Kentucky congregation that voted to ban interracial couples from joining. Well, here's the rest of that story. There are only about forty people in the whole congregation, and the vote that was taken will be voided for not having even enough of those present to call for such a change in the church's bylaws. The original measure that got everybody upset passed, 9-6. So, a whole NINE people rammed through a vote that made their church a laughingstock and gave all kinds of tub-thumpers a stage upon which to ramp and snort, and all of us orthodox Christian types had to defend our own churches against the implication that those NINE people described us, too.

The news is full of tails wagging dogs these days.
