    That had absolutly nothing to do with it being a right. It said and I quote " Virginia's anti-miscegenation statute, the "Racial Integrity Act of 1924", unconstitutional, thereby overturning Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States."

    As soon as sex becomes a race, you let me know.

    Meh I don't think any one wants that.

    Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.... To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State.

    Yes....loving was based on inter-racial marriage. However, the underlying principle in the case recognized that the right of consenting adults to marry the person of their choice is a right. The underlying principle was not based on race.

    As soon as sex becomes a valid reason to legislate happiness, you let me know.
