Hindu beliefs on interracial dating
A good deal of the controversy over same-sex marriage has been linked to the comparison of it to interracial marriage.Merely perusing the articles, comments and debates reveals that many believe that same-sex marriage today is what interracial marriage was in the past. But one argument in particular that has caught my attention is that just as Christianity is the major force opposing same-sex marriage today, it was the major force opposing interracial marriage in the past.The next book I looked at is Tell the Church I Love my Wife: Race, Marriage and Law – An American History by Peter Wallenstein.
Reading this book does not provide one with the sense that Christianity was an overwhelming factor in opposition to interracial marriage.It is fair to say that Christians historically may have more opposition than support for interracial marriage but at best it was one of many sources of support of anti-miscegenation, and not a core source since some Christians were motivated by their religious beliefs to support interracial marriage.My examination of Interracial Intimacy: The Regulation of Race and Romance by Rachel Moran proved to be quite frustrating.He does not merely look at Christians but also looks at the issues of Jews.For Jews this issue is not as much an opposition to interracial marriage as much as it is an opposition to interfaith marriage.
