While the general rarity of biracial individuals today should immediately inform us that interracial marriages are relatively new in history, it is still helpful to look into the stated opinions of men of the past.
However, since little ink was spilled on the topic of interracial marriage before separate races even lived amongst each other, I will not be going back terribly far in history, just to the seventeenth century and onward.

Miscegenation, more commonly called interracial marriage, is one of the touchiest subjects about which one can speak today.
This clearly shows the historic opinion of Americans on the matter.The main topics dealt with are: Whether the Catholic Church believes that the members of these other groups have a chance of being saved.The Catholic Church teaches that individuals who are not saved spend eternity after death being tortured in Hell with no hope of relief.It is tacitly assumed that everyone has thought the same way in history, except for a few evil men who thought otherwise due to racial bigotry and especially to “ignorance,” as the accusation often goes.
But, shockingly enough, it is only a fairly recent view that interracial marriage should be encouraged.Some consider the Catholic Church's views to be extremely arrogant and their claims to Apostolic Succession to be ridiculous.
