It doesn't have to be "supported". The Bible speaks of marriage as a union of a man and a woman. Period. It doesn't specify a man and woman of the same ethnic background. It is objection to interracial marriage that would need to be supported, and it cannot be, not scripturally and not by any other means.

The Bible supports slavery. Do you actually think it would support interracial marriage? The Bible is the very fallible word of a bigot.

you're on the magnificent song--in fact, it became into the 1949 determination overturning regulations against interracial marriage that the California suited courtroom used as its case regulation interior the determination in might of this 365 days that pronounced that gays have the magnificent to equivalent risk-free practices. The Bible may well be used to coach particularly much something, so I grant some factors to contemplate: Marriage is an selection open to CONSENTING grownup human beings--not juveniles, donkeys, sheep, or blow-up dolls. reproduction has not something to do with it--or you will possibly desire to argue that girls human beings previous menopause and the infertile and adult adult males who've had vasectomies should not be accredited to marry/remarry. If a "civil union" includes an identical rights and household initiatives as a marriage, what does it remember what it is termed? it fairly is a binding civil settlement the two way. people who additionally desire to have a spiritual provider are welcome to discover a church prepared to accomplish such rites.

I think one of the strongest texts that does relate to this is in the Old Testament, where we read that Moses, who was the mediator of the old covenant, took to himself a wife who was a Cushite. A Cushite was an Ethiopian. All of the evidence that we can construct on Old Testament history indicates that Moses' wife was black. We also read that his sister, Miriam, became very distressed by the fact that her brother married Cushite. It was a racist reaction. Miriam got angry and rebuked Moses. Because of Miriam's response, God judged Miriam and gave her leprosy. So if anything, it would seem to me that God frowns upon those who are racists.Source(s): Sproul, R. C.

There are none supportive; none opposing.
This one might come close to being supportive.. there are no jew or greek; male or female; we are all one in Christ.
