    That's why that ban was struck down.

    If the restriction were broad, requiring both parties to be of the same race in order to marry, regardless of the race, the law would likely have stood.

    I don't think so:

    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.

    Calling him a bigot was simply me acknowledging his only real talent. Do you have statistics to prove your assertion by the way?

    Does anyone know why there is an increase in boys acting girly?

    I'm not saying it is connected to this, but I'm not taking it out as a cause either.

    Any answers to that?

    I'm sure the whack job right wing will come up with the definitive answer. And Scalia is just the man for the job.
