“Brigham Young made a very strong statement on this matter when he said, ‘[S]hall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.’ God has commanded Israel not to intermarry. To go against this commandment of God would be to sin. Those who willfully sin with their eyes open to this wrong will not be surprised to find that they will be separated from the presence of God in the world to come. This is spiritual death…It does not matter if they are one-sixth Negro or one-one hundred and sixth, the curse of no Priesthood is still the same…To intermarry with a Negro is to forfeit a ‘Nation of Priesthood holders.’”
