    Groovy. But can we talk about the much more valid and often incompatible dynamics between men and women first? I think heterosexual marriage should be outlawed based in these alone.

    I'm not even kidding.

    That's what I'M asking YOU.

    What is the Justice's reasoning? What reason does the Justice give? I have no idea.

    I'm referring to the Justices reasonings. What were they?

    I thought his sole reasoning for denying the marraige was because he felt that this couple, based on their race, would be unfit to raise children or produce unfit children?

    What is NOT racist about saying "Your black and your white and because of your races you are unfit to have children." What does the pigmentation of someone's skin have to do with their ability to raise children? ALSO, how does neglecting a marraige license disallow this couple from still procreating? IN effect all the justice did was hurt the potential children by denying their parents the ability to be married and receive benefits that come with that.

    Would it have been ok for the judge to deny a blonde man and brunette woman from being married because, based on their hair color, he feels they are unfit to be parents?

    Ah OK. I have no idea Jerry, none.

    Growing up I was more concearned with playing D&D than race to be honest. Much like other kids.

    I figure he is either a biggot or just came back from a bad Klan meeting?

    Again I have no idea.

    How would they be unfit?

    It's rather ignorant of you to assume that skin color is the only thing which defines a race. While these may not hinder a mix'd couple's ability to raise a child, there is a host of genetic differences between races. More relevant, however, are the cultural differences, which can be striking.

    Please bring real examples to the table or don't even bother.
