Andrew my dear brother, if you actually bother to read Genesis 6, you will see this:
11The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
The sins that caused God to send the flood was not miscegenation, but violence. Humanity fighting each other, and not living in the peace and harmony that God intended.
Now the passage you refer to in Jude has nothing to do with race mixing, but rather the sinful sexual actions of the people of Sodom toward people who were outside of their community. Strangers if you want, people who were different. If you look at Genesis 19 closely, you see that the inhabitants of Sodom planned the rape of the angels disguised as men had
come to Lots' home. That was the sin of Sodom. They violated one of the cardinal rules of society in that time, to offer travelers and strangers hospitality. They wanted to show how powerful they were by humiliating the visitors, considering them outside of the community. Much like weak and insecure children
try to show their power by picking on others, or in the case of the misguided adherents of CI, by holding other races in contempt.
Now regarding Bertrand Comparet, I will cheerfully admit I have not read any of his works, but I am familiar with other segregationist writers such as
Leander Perez Jr and William Simmons. Generally, their understanding of the Bible and the lessons of history are based on very faulty understands of the word of God. Typically, they have done what in seminary is called "Proof Texting." That is, they have taken passages of scripture out of context, and used them to support the views. In fairness to the author you mention though, I will read the sermon you suggest, to see if he offers anything different.
I continue to pray for your soul, which is in the gravest of dangers.
