No, the Court maintained the nature of the marital relationship as a union of husband and wife. It also recognized the ban on BLACK & WHITE interracial marriage was a means of continuing a policy of white supremacy which the court found abhorant. The ban was not universally applied for it only banned certain racial combinations. For instance, depending on the state, a black person or "colored" could not marry a white person but could marry an 'oriental".<quoted text>
So, you're saying that the Supreme Court "expanded" or "redefined" marriage in America to include interracial marriage; which had not been recognized universally in the U.S. prior to 1967.
True, however, "gay marriage" is a recent modern invention. Same gendered marriage never developed, parallel to opposite sex marriage, either polygamous or monogamous. If it had, it would already exist.And you, yourself, admitted earlier that same-gender marriages have existed in the past. So, it's not like it's a brand new idea.
Perhaps.Besides, same-sex couples have been around for eons, even if they haven't been formally recognized through marriage.
SSSB is not new, the concept of a political sexual identity, "gay", is relatively new.You guys act as though us gay people just started falling out of the closet a few years ago.
We won't let your ignorance stand in the way of what we believe is a relationship, conjugal marriage, worthy of respect, privileged status, and not subject to redefinition in order to pacify modern sexual political identity movements. Different situations call for different solutions.We won't let your ignorance stand in the way of what we believe we are entitled to.
