Interracial dating beliefs
But, shockingly enough, it is only a fairly recent view that interracial marriage should be encouraged.
While the general rarity of biracial individuals today should immediately inform us that interracial marriages are relatively new in history, it is still helpful to look into the stated opinions of men of the past.
The way the debate over miscegenation is normally construed, the allowed views are basically these: either one believes that interracial marriage is wrong in all circumstances, or one believes that interracial marriage is wrong in no circumstances.
Before venturing into the subject itself, it would be profitable to understand what others, especially Christians, have thought of miscegenation.” The proper choice between those two, of course, is to select the believing spouse of a different race.Thus, this hypothetical advocate of miscegenation will have proven that there are circumstances (albeit rare ones) in which interracial marriage is permissible; but his error exposes itself when he then presumes that because miscegenation can be appropriate in such unordinary circumstances, then it must be inherently appropriate in all circumstances. The answer could lie somewhere on the continuum between “wrong in all circumstances” and “wrong in no circumstances.” It could be, when all is said and done, that miscegenation is wrong in no circumstances whatsoever; it could be that it is wrong in basically all circumstances, extraordinary situations excepted.Allegedly, the only reason people would be opposed to marrying those of other races is because they have hatred or animosity for other races.It is because of this allegation that any opposition to miscegenation has been thoroughly and censoriously silenced.
