HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE: IT'S ALL OVER BUT THE SHOUTING | 2003-11-22
The Massachusetts Supreme Court has ruled that the state must approve homosexual marriages. All the precedents are on their side.
In 1945 the California Supreme Court struck down that state's ban on interracial marriages. The California Supreme Court defied all constitutional history to do that. Everybody who ratified the California state constitution was for a law against interracial marriages.
The California Supreme Court simply and openly dictated social policy and it won.
Every state that ratified the United States Bill of Rights had and enforced laws against interracial marriage. In 1968 the United States Supreme Court struck down every law in this country against interracial marriage by saying they violated the Bill of Rights.
People like me said that was a dangerous precedent. Everybody said we were just being alarmists.
You can scream all you want to about homosexual marriage. You lost that fight thirty-five years ago.
