  • No i think it clearly states someone is a racist. ya have them back then and ya have them now. The funny thing about the bible is is was written about 50 years after jesus death. thent he church chose to admit or omit script. It was also told by people before it was written and we all know that people are just so trusting in their story telling *rolls eyes* something to ponder about...I believe in a god, just not one fathomed by humans, they fail to be honest and open.

  • I don't know and I don't think anything written nearly 2, 500 years or so ago has any relevance to the multi-racial society we live in today which is based on democratic ideals and not the theocracy of an ancient Jewish tribe.

  • What's this got to do with interracial marriages?...


    Lev 19:19 “‘YOU people should keep my statutes: You must not interbreed your domestic animals of two sorts. You must not sow your field with seeds of two sorts, and you must not put upon yourself a garment of two sorts of thread, mixed together"

  • I have read you weren't supposed to marry people that had a different faith than God's,but never for the color of their skin. The verse you gave is the wrong one in my Bible b/c it didn't say anything of either point.
