Was Opposition to Interracial Marriage Motivated by Christianity?

Good question!

In this brief article, the author posits that opposition to interracial marriage was (at least to some extent) motivated by Christian propaganda, citing the books Race Mixing: Black-White Marriage in Postwar America by Renee Romano and Tell the Church I Love my Wife: Race, Marriage and Law – An American History by Peter Wallenstein and Interracial Intimacy: The Regulation of Race and Romance by Rachel Moran; all of these sounding very interesting if you have time to disseminate them all equally.

Happy Loving Day!
