Lot of good Christian, Confederate-flag waving customers were horrified that People would sink so low to put an interracial couple on the cover. “Bible says what it says.” “Races were meant to be separate.” “Thank God they don’t have children.” And these were his *supporters* — they were glad he’d been confirmed. It wasn’t anything personal, mind you, it was just their religious beliefs.

So it goes.
