Pike Co. Pastor Calls for New Vote on Interracial Couples
The pastor of a small Pike County church that voted against accepting interracial couples as members said he will ask the congregation to overturn the decision. Stacy Stepp, pastor of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church, said he will seek a new vote on the issue, perhaps as early as Sunday. Stepp said he is confident members of the church, which has about 45 members, will overturn the earlier decision.
