Race is not a social construction; it is a theologi

Race is not a social construction; it is a theological construction. When European biblical fundamentalism needed to explain the rapid population growth that included people of so many different backgrounds from the common ancestry of Adam and Eve, it needed a racial taxonomy. So European biblical fundamentalism joined hands with an influential but bogus form of science to conclude that some of those included in the rapid population growth were not human. This is the birth of race in the modern West.

So it is that race and racism were born of an unholy alliance. This unholy alliance was between a corrupt biblical fundamentalism--this term is redundant, as biblical fundamentalism is inherently corrupt--and a pseudo-scientific concept of race.

Race performs in the theater of the social and the political. But it is theology that purchased the ticket to the show. #GodHaveMercy Repost from Prof. Tim Golden's Facebook feed, Walla Walla University
