Brilliant article compares gay rights to interracial marriage
There are few people with common sense who would disagree with the argument gay marriage is as much a civil rights issue as interracial marriages were a few decades ago. To illustrate this point, a columnist called Trevor Boeckmaan recently wrote a brilliant article trying to argue against people of different color getting married. He uses the same arguments “traditional marriage” folks like throw around, and as you might imagine, it’s a powerful indictment of the bigotry and intolerance of the religious right:
The dangers of interracial marriage are well-established. Miscegenation is an untested social experiment that puts our future generations at risk. A 1968 study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease overviews the hazards interracial marriage poses on children. The burden of not having a race to call their own is often overwhelming. The Los Angeles County General Hospital reported their children’s psychiatry ward was full of interracial children. This should come as no surprise; deviating from what God intended can have dire consequences. No moral society should impose these consequences on children.
