    There is nothing wrong with people of 2 races getting married as long as they are a man and a woman.

    3) And, either way, even if homosexuals aren't contributing to the gene pool of the future, then what harm does it do to give them marriage equality?

    Bottom line is, this isn't an argument about genes or reproduction. It's an argument about rights, equality, discrimination, and justice.
    To your point of view, but apparently, some people have a different opinion. Homosexuals are not being discrimated against. They have the same right to marry as any normal person does. There is absolutely nothing stopping them from a normal marriage, other than thier own choice not to. There is absolutely not need to change laws to extent normal "rights" to those who have abnormal behaviors. What next, you want to give Paranoid Schizonphrenics the right to buy guns afer they have been diagnosed? But since this argument centers around sexual deviations, perhaps you want to recognise pedophilia as normal also.

    Don't make me start a new topic: If a man, or woman, wants to ban beastiality does that make him, or her, a bigot?

If you want equality of rights, why does it stop at how many consenting adults want to marry?
    Because with race or gender, you don't have a choice in the matter. If some people can marry a white woman, but others can't because of their race or gender, that's discrimination and nothing they can do can ever change it. In contrast, if some people can marry a woman but others can't because of their current marital status, that's a result of a CHOICE they made...and one which they are free to REVERSE at any time. That is NOT discrimination, any moreso than any other form of treating people differently for their actions.

    So people have a choice in what culture they are born into? Sure, they can possibly change cutlures after the become adults, but that doesn't happen with everyone, does it? Hell, if people actually were more willing to move to different cultures, all the liberals would have already taken boats to where what they want actually exists instead of trying to force it upon others.

    Of course wanting to ban interracial marriage is the height of bigotry. Why would anyone even ask? There is no other reason for such a ban.

    It hasn't been all that long ago that such marriages were banned outright in some places, and seriously frowned on even where they were legal. Times change, and our silly old racial stereotypes don't survive the test of time or rationality.

    no it's not. It's not by default bigoted.

    Why can't a gay interracial couple get married (besides the obvious legal reasons in many states)?

    They do, most couples getting married are gay at their wedding, it is only later that less joyous emotions come in.
