    Gee, this is familiar.

    “The state’s prohibition of interracial marriage for this reason stands on the same footing as the prohibition of polygamous marriage, or incestuous marriage or the prescription of minimum ages at which people may marry and the prevention of the marriage of people who are mentally incompetent.”

    - R. D. McIlwaine III, then Virginia’s assistant attorney general, in Loving v. the State of Virginia

    Oddly enough, McIlwaine did not bring up same sex marriage in 1967. Too risque, I suppose.

    State v. Jackson. Missouri (1883): “They cannot possibly have any progeny, and such a fact sufficiently justifies those laws which forbid the intermarriage of blacks and whites.”

    Senator James R. Doolittle (D-WI), 1863: “By the laws of Massachusetts intermarriages between these races are forbidden as criminal. Why forbidden? Simply because natural instinct revolts at it as wrong.”

    Scott v. Sandford (1857), Chief Justice Taney: “Intermarriages between white persons and negroes or mulattoes were regarded as unnatural and immoral.”

    Bob Jones University, (1998!!!): “Although there is no verse in the Bible that dogmatically says that races should not intermarry, the whole plan of God as He has dealt with the races down through the ages indicates that interracial marriage is not best for man.”

    From a submitted briefing to the Court on Loving v. Virginia: “I believe that the tendency to classify all persons who oppose [this type of relationship] as ‘prejudiced’ is in itself a prejudice,” a psychologist said. “Nothing of any significance is gained by such a marriage.”

    Seeing as how a legal marriage contract requires both individuals to 1) be of age of consent and 2) give legal consent, animals could never enter into a legal marriage. The whole bestiality angle a stupid argument of someone who has no legitimate argument to give.

    It’s just a way to dehumanize a group they don’t care for.

    I don’t care if a guy (or girl) wants to marry an animal.


    People (e.g. Catholic priests) who intentionally put themselves in a position to deny their sexual needs are dangerous and clandestine and tend to prey on children.

    Watch out Mr. King. The posters of whom you speak may be NRA members.

    No? Says who? Surely Biden and Obama are in favor of all types of “marriage” now, even these.

    Yeah, only conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Bob Barr have the right to debase the sanctity of marriage!

    Marriage? You mean matrimony. Big difference. Matrimony is a sacrament. Marriage is legal term.
    -
    I don’t see any reason to deny any consenting adults to enter a legally binding contract to become married.

    Ok so you believe a person(s) should be able to Marry in groups or a Horse. What about marrying a minor, say 12.
