Interracial marriage does not change the inherent moral definition of marriage,
as being between a man and a woman. Same sex marriage, however, changes
marriage from a moral construct with a moral definition into a non-construct
with no definition -- just a matter of personal whimsy, political popularity, or
various random cultural factors.It is sometimes said that the
legalization of SSM constitutes the "triumph of love." It sounds to me
more like the triumph of relativism.
Interracial marriage is very different from same-sex marriage. It is silly to
compare the two. Interracial marriage has been around since time immemorial and
has been producing healthy families that whole time. SSM is new and cannot
produce children. Those are the most obvious differences, but there are many

@Iron RodRichard died in a car accident in 1975. Mildred died in
2008. Mildred once said, “The older generation’s fears and
prejudices have given way, and today’s young people realize that if

pretty sure they stayed in Virginia. That was the rationale behind the lawsuit.
They wanted to live in that State. By 1967, most States with laws on the books
banning interracial marriage were not enforcing them.
She died at age 68. He died in 1975 in a car accident.Three kids.
I would appreciate more information on how it went for themWhat are they
doing today?Did they stay living in the south?What was the hardest
thing for them?How many children did they have?How many
grandchildren?What advise would they have for similar young couples today?
@RubydoCould it be that only racists and race baiters get annoyed by
articles on interracial marriages and where they most occur?
Spencer W. Kimball had very strong ideas on this subject.
Could it be that only racists and race baiters care about the stats on
interracial marriages and where they most occur?
@huterite Yes it was very similar and in fact many of the same and very
similar arguments were made against legalizing interracial marriage.
Do you suppose they had to put up with the same arguments 50 years ago that we
just had to exorcise from the same sex marriage debate?
