Nathanael Strickland of Faith & Heritage interacts with a 1960 sermon from Bob Jones:
Kinism is often accused of being a new invention by our multiracialist Alienist opponents. Our response is that, while the name may be new, our beliefs are the same as historical Christianity; we are forced to take on a new name for ourselves due to the Marxist hijacking of modern Christianity. While they may sit in control of the denominations and speak for what passes as Christianity at present, it is their views which are the new invention. We are the true heirs of the Christian tradition, and our views are the ones holding continuity with the past. The first part of this proof is offered by the Alienists themselves. That they must so thoroughly condemn and apologize for their forefathers betrays their discontinuity. This alone should be enough, but as further and more concrete proof, I offer the following sermon by Bob Jones Sr. from 1960, entitled “Is Segregation Scriptural?” In 1960, Protestantism was the predominant religion in the South, and Bob Jones Sr. was one of the most prominent figures in the Protestant South. Bob Jones Sr. was the founder and first president of Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina, which, along with Pensacola Christian College in Florida, was and still is one of the most influential fundamentalist Christian institutions in the region and even the country. His disagreements with Billy Graham were a large contributing factor to the split between fundamentalists and evangelicals in 1957. He helped pioneer the practice of giving sermons on the radio, which in fact is how this particular sermon was given. Thus it is reasonable to say that his views in this sermon are definitely representative of the views of white, conservative Christians in the South at the time, and probably even some of the more moderate Southern Christians and white, conservative Christians in the North.
