Racist preacher: TN preacher's sermon against interracial marriage goes viral

See also

Brother Donny Reagan of Johnson City's Happy Valley Church of Jesus Christ in Tennessee has had one of his sermons go viral, and in the minds of many, it isn't for a good reason. Knoxnews.com reported on Feb. 19, 2014, that one of Reagan's sermons is getting a lot of attention and it is all due to his preaching against interracial relationships and biracial babies.

The video was uploaded last week, but has really started making the rounds on Wednesday.

In it, Reagan preaches about how he is against black people (or colored people as he says) marrying white people and white people marrying black people. He knows it is a sensitive subject and realizes it will make people mad, but according to him, "what's new?"

“There is a move in the message, of blacks marrying whites, whites marrying blacks.” Reagan explains “And folks think that is alright, but you know, my God still has nationalities outside the city.’

To the “amens” of his congregation, Brother Reagan read, “Hybreeding, hybreeding, oh how terrible. They hybreed the people. You know it’s a big molding pot. I’ve got hundreds of precious colored friends that’s borned again Christians. But on this line of segregation, hybreeding the people. What, tell me what fine cultured, fine Christian colored woman would want her baby to be a mulatto by a white man? No sir, it’s not right.”

Reagan also told his congregation that “If God wanted a man brown, black, white, whatever color he wanted him, that God’s creation. That’s the way he wanted it.”

Oh, it doesn't stop there and you'll be able to see that in the video. He goes on to reference Hitler, the KKK, and just keeps on going. Reagan knows how controversial the topic is, but he doesn't care and wants his words to be heard.

Reagan took it upon himself to give another sermon that was uploaded to YouTube on Feb. 18, 2014, and he did apologize.

He didn't apologize for being the so-called "racist preacher," but he apologized for people that were upset over hearing the "truth" come from him.

As for the title of "racist preacher," that has come from a large number of people that have heard the Tennessee church leader's words. The American Jesus Blog wrote up a post that said:

"If he's (Reagan) is not the most racist pastor in America, then he's at least got to crack the top 10 list."
