  • I'm glad none of you got a chance to pass judgment on my marriage.

  • but . . . but . . . but . . . the will of the people!
    it's not as though the Founders provided protection against the tyranny of the majority.
    oh, wait . . .

  • Why, yes, of course--if that is what the majority of the people want, then it makes perfect sense to discriminate against interracial couples. After all, who wants to see people of different backgrounds walking down the street, hand in hand? Why should we have to watch them in their bedrooms being intimate? We would, wouldn't we? Isn't there some sort of law that requires couples who might not get the approval of the general population to have their intimate moments out in the open--and in front of children? That would be just would be just wrong to subject our poor little children to such perverted acts in public. Then, those interracial couples would be going into kindergarten classes, copulating in front of the children, and encouraging them all to marry people of different races. How sick is that?

  • Hell no!

    Answer by older at 12:52 PM on Aug. 14, 2010

  • Is there a link or something?

    yes, the link is that both are discriminatory and unconstitutional.

  • And for all of this BS about people "choosing to be gay or not gay"... please.

    Do a little test and TRY to be gay for a day. Just a day... you don't even have to be sexually active, just sexually attracted to the oposite sex. (oh.. what you can't... hmmm, guess it was not a choice then)

    What people can do is choose to not be so judgemental!

  • No, I beleve the choice should be amongst the two who are in love.

    Answer by Sassysab28 at 4:32 PM on Aug. 14, 2010

  • Are they really trying that?

    Answer by matthewscandi at 12:54 PM on Aug. 14, 2010

  • Is this one of those "whats the difference between interracial marriage and gay marriage" questions? Because I live an AL and have not heard of this. Is there a link or something?
