Oh, the horror! Don’t look, children!

A race row has broken out in Mississippi after a black couple were turned away from the church in which they planned to get married.

Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson had set the date and posted the invitations but, the day before the wedding, the pastor of the predominantly white First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs said the ceremony would not go ahead.

He told them a small number of church members had virulently opposed holding the event at the church, and he faced being sacked if he went ahead with it.

Well, dang those uppity white folks! Time for the Supreme Court to step in?
