Special Alert – 07
Good morning, afternoon, evening, etc:
Religious Organizations Ban or Discourage Interracial Marriage/Dating
Bob Jones University, Greenville, SC
Bob Jones University issues letter to James Landrith, Editor & Publisher of The Multiracial Activist regarding their controversial ban on interracial dating between students at Bob Jones University.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Salt Lake City, UT
Official Church dotrine does not ban interracial marriage, but does discourage it. Church leaders use the old “what about the children” argument as well as describing interracial couples planning to marry as thinking “selfishly of themselves”.
Yours in Struggle,
