Bob Jones University, a Christian college with notable alumni such as evangelist Billy Graham and Tim La Haye of the series, had a school policy banning interracial dating up until 2000.In 2013, a pastor in Carter County, Tennessee preached that he believes that “coloreds” and whites should not mix.

No Christian has the right to tell another Christian to mold their personal decisions accordingly because a sinful society does not tolerate their biblical actions.I myself have been called sexual slurs or “disgusting” for my current and past interracial relationships by Sunday school companions (the same friends who will cry over poor black children in Africa but not shed a tear for the poor black children downtown), and a white friend of mine was once slapped across the face while on the phone with her black boyfriend by her best friend (the daughter of a minister) to force the phone call to end “because (my friend) should have ‘known better’ than to keep speaking to ‘that black guy.’” These “biblical” condemnations of interracial marriage are simply false and not, well, biblical.
