So will that specific Baptist church be expelled from the Southern Baptist Convention for refusing to marry black people?

"The deacons made an affirmation that First Baptist Church would be available to minister to anybody in the church or the community. That went over real well," said Copiah County Baptist Association Director George Pat Bufkin, who attended the service. " They're now in the way of amends."

Bufkin portrayed the move to deny the black couple a chance to marry in the church as the work of a small minority whom he called "radicals" and who he said made mostly anonymous calls to their pastor to complain about the black couple's wedding. Bufkin said he did not know who exactly was behind the calls [although a preliminary investigation shows the calls originating from a "name sez it all" profile for a "Henry Vilas" Madison, Wisconsin.]
