A white woman was caught on camera over the weekend saying that the wedding venue she manages will not marry interracial or LGBT couples because it goes against her “Christian beliefs.”
Deep South Voice reports that a manager Boone’s Camp Event Hall in Boonville, Mississippi told LaKambria Welch this past weekend that her brother and his fiance would not be able to get married at the venue because it has a policy against hosting “mixed” marriages.
Welch’s brother, who is black, had been working with the venue to arrange a wedding with his fiance, who is a white woman. The venue abruptly told Welch’s brother that he would not be able to get married there roughly one week after they started making arrangements, however, because his marriage would violate the venue’s religious convictions.
Welch proceeded to go to the venue and asked a woman there why her brother could not get married there.
“First of all, we don’t do gay weddings or mixed race, because of our Christian race — I mean, our Christian belief,” the woman tells Welch in the video.
Welch interjects and points out that her family are Christians as well, and then asks the woman to explain what passage in the Bible opposes letting interracial couples get married.
“Well, I don’t want to argue my faith,” the woman replies. “We just don’t participate.”

Rep AOC helped Bernie Sanders turn out ‘the largest crowd drawn by any candidate’: report

‘Rudy is a lousy lawyer’: Ex-prosecutor reveals why nobody will hire Giuliani for legal work
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is getting rich selling his access to the White House, in spite of being a "lousy" attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.
Paul Butler was interviewed on MSNBC by Kendis Gibson on Saturday.
"One issue is that representing Donald Trump has been great business for Rudy Giuliani," Butler noted.
"Since he’s started to be his defense attorney, there’s a huge demand for Rudy’s services. And let's face it, Rudy is a lousy lawyer. We’ve all seen him go on TV and by the time he goes off TV his client is in more trouble. So people probably aren’t hiring him for his legal skills, they want his access," he explained.
