Bible whites dating blacks
But does the Word of God really condemn such mixes?
Is there ultimately any such thing as “interracial marriage”?

Dear Catholic Exchange: My Baptist friend says the Bible states that we shouldn't mix the races non-whites marrying whites, etc. I didn't know they still made Baptists like that.
