If you people would simply read the Loving v Virginia decision you MIGHT, and I say might because many of you aren't that bright, understand why this decision has NOTHING to do with the current issue.<quoted text>
The Supreme Court has already once impacted the state's ability to regulate marriage in 1967 when decided in the Loving v. Virginia case. It overturned not only Virginia's law against interracial marriage, but it also overturned its own 1883 decision, Pace v. Alabama, in which a ban on interracial marriage was upheld.
Loving V Virginia dealt with racial discrimination. The court was clear as to why it came to the decision it did.
" The clear and central purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment was to eliminate all official state sources of invidious racial discrimination in the States."- Loving v Virginia
