    Hold on, have to Google "anti-miscegenation" to find out wtf you're talking about.....oh, you're talking about interracial marriage. It simply doesn't apply because interracial marriage shares nothing in common with gay-marriage.

    Why? That's not something I believe. Besides, you would first need to prove that there is a heterosexual-purity equivalent to the racial purity stance supporting anti-interracial marriage first.

    Sure they share something in common. In both cases, marriage was denied some one due to characteristics beyond their control. An interracial marriage ban and gay marriage ban are both discriminatory, and both are foolish.

    See, lots in common.

    Gays can marry gays, though....I mean, yeah sure the other gay has to be of the opposit sex, but they also have to be of age and unrelated...etc..so, so what?

    They have nothing in common. Create gay-marriage if you wish, but it's not a civil rights issue.

    When you have to twist meaning like that, it pretty much always means you are wrong, as you are in this case.

    Jerry's right and he's not twisting meaning. This is why it is NOT a civil rights issue, but a family and personal well being issue.

    I think he is actually. How about I rephrase abit to make it more clear and more accurate. Both interracial marriage bans and gay marriage bans deny people the ability to marry who they choose for no reason beyond societal discrimination.

    Please show where and why the government would have a stake in allowing people to marry who they want...for the sole reason of marrying who they want, no other factors may be included. You are talking about legalities, not moralities. Morally, I agree with you, but without some legal backbone for your argument, morals don't mean much.

    I am not arguing from a legal standpoint. My whole stance on gay marriage is we need to agree it needs to happen, and then do what needs to be done to make it legal. I am not a lawyer, so the legal stuff is not my department.

    With that said, there are clear and distinct similarities between anti-miscegenation laws and gay marriage currently. To say they have no similarity is patently false.
