    I think a Christian can racist and can be a against race mixing. Because if you believe in racial/cultural compatibility and you prefer and think you are happier with a White woman and you do not date blacks or non-Whites it is not really racist. Only if you say blacks are Monkeys and it is animal sex (someone on StormFront) said that it is unchristian and hateful but even some blacks would want to marry another black. Thats not racist. But at the same time it is not a sin to marry another race, and the church should not refuse a Blessing or marriage ceremony for a interracial couple. Some prominent bible figures had a interracial marriage. But gay marriages should not receive a Blessing or take place in a church. Homosexuality is a sin.

    A self-proclaimed one, yes. I think especially the self-proclaimed Christians.

    I don't think a person who actually follows Jesus' teaching could be a racist, but lots of those fakes that claim to be Christian to justify their hateful behavior are.

    And the Devil quoted Scripture. What's your point, other than the one on your head?

    What scripture exactly did he quote? The point is, Christians can most certainly be racists. Believing in Jesus is not the same as believing in equality. And, better one's head be pointy and sharp than dull.

    There's a church in every neighborhood.

    You must live in utter fear.

    I'm no biblical scholar, but I've read a lot of the bible and I can recall nothing that Jesus said which led me to believe any man was superior to another based on their heritage.

    We are ONE HUMAN RACE, any other point of view is complete ignorance, or designed to divide God's creation for nefarious goals.
