You Can Only Read This If You're A White Christian

I hope you read that title with the sarcasm with which it was written. Yahoo news has an AP story with the headline, Megachurches Desegregate Worship. So what are you implying? Smaller parishes do segregate?

The writer continues: "Researchers who study race and religion say Grace Chapel is among a vanguard of megachurches that are breaking down racial barriers in American Christianity, altering the long-segregated landscape of Sunday worship." Ahh, I see. It's only the American Christians who segregate. Any mention of Orthodox Judaism or Islam's separation of men & women when it comes to liturgical prayer? Nope. Just us Christians.
