Interracial dating in kentucky
If Christians really took this interpretation seriously, why would it only apply to interracial relationships?It would also condemn every other act of blending together of humanity, from learning other languages to even getting to know people from different parts of the world.And weren't some of the last words of Christ for his followers to go into all the world?Of course the Kentucky Baptists, and others who feel threatened by interracial relationships, can't consistently hold to their prejudices.The trend toward more interracial marriages is undoubtedly related, at least in part, to changing social norms.Our previous surveys have documented growing acceptance among the public.Some racial groups are more likely to intermarry than others.Of the 3.6 million adults who got married in 2013, 58% of American Indians, 28% of Asians, 19% of blacks and 7% of whites have a spouse whose race was different from their own.
Standing on the side-lines, the rest of us believe it's all wrong-headed. Yet there's great value in delving into the archaeology of these prejudices. Here's a link to the description of its history in the US.
Working together, they decide they can build a tower that will reach up into heaven.

In 2013, a record-high 12% of newlyweds married someone of a different race, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data.
(This share does not take into account the “interethnic” marriages between Hispanics and non-Hispanics, which we covered in an earlier report on intermarriage.) Looking beyond newlyweds, 6.3% of all marriages were between spouses of different races in 2013, up from less than 1% in 1970.
For Asians, the gender pattern goes in the opposite direction: Asian women are much more likely than Asian men to marry someone of a different race.
