Black Man Says Changing Traditional Marriage Is Bad. Are You Kidding Me?on August 4, 2012 at 2:05 pm
I just caught this over at Bob Cesca’s blog:
Nothing really new here, just the usual: people hiding their bigotry behind the Bible. What caught my attention, though, was the black guy at :37 telling us how changing marriage destabilizes it. He says he remembers Jim Crow laws but apparently he doesn’t remember the anti-miscegenation laws that made it illegal for blacks and whites to marry. You know, the ones that had to be overturned in 16 states by the Supreme Court in the 1967 case Loving v. Virginia (quite possibly the most appropriately named court case ever). The “justification” for those laws? People claimed the Bible said so and also that it would destabilize marriage.
