Catholics promoted sin of interracial marriage

American Catholics and Civil Rights

Independent Institute Research Fellow Jonathan J. Bean writes in Ignatius Insight: "My new book, Race and Liberty in America: The Essential Reader...emphasizes the role of Christianity (and Judaism) in the classic tradition of civil rights. This 'classical liberal' tradition is neither Left nor Right but was deeply influenced by Judeo-Christian notions of natural law. Naturally, Catholics played a role in upholding the 'natural rights' of men and women."

Bean notes, for example, that the Catholic Church married interracial couples many years before the Supreme Court ruled in 1967 that anti-miscegenation laws are unconstitutional. Forty years earlier, in Buck v. Bell, the sole Catholic Supreme Court Justice at the time, Pierce Butler, broke with a majority of the Court when it upheld the practice of forced sterilization of those deemed cognitively deficient. Bean's book abounds with similar examples of Catholics leading the way in the struggle for civil rights.

"In a word, Catholics were at the center of many civil rights struggles, including the struggle to be recognized as equal to other Americans," writes Bean. "With the help of classical liberalism, they secured their rights to free association (schools) and all the 'privileges and immunities' of citizenship. In turn, they fought for the 'natural' right to marry whomever we please by drawing upon natural law--a doctrine rooted in Catholic thought."

Race and Liberty in America: The Essential Reader, edited by Jonathan Bean

Usually you read about liberal Jews and other bleeding hearts misleading the way in destroying diversity, but here Jonathan Bean notes the Catholic Church's guilt in adulterating the races, enabling mixed marriages, and promoting other treacherous sins intent on destroying the United States, since Rome HATES independent thought. Of course the Catholic Church cloaked it all as "civil rights struggles" and other nonsense, a wolf in sheep's clothing.
