    I did like Bill Clinton as President unlike Mr Bush and his policies.

    I'm not going to offer my opinion on the actual interracial marriage, although they were forbidden in the Bible.

    What I will say is will somebody PLEEEEAASE think of the children. haha.

    No. It's true. All kidding aside. Nobody bothers to think of them. They don't fit in anywhere and are thus segregated from their peers. They aren't black and they aren't white. Although they might be able to fit in on some superficial level, they don't have anything to call their own and it just isn't fair to them. There is nothing wrong with them as a person per se. I just feel bad for them. One can only hope they can find a group of friends that is willing to look beyond the superficial, which is exceedingly rare up to adulthood.

    Wow, very thought provoking article. To think, the exact same arguments used against interracial marriage are being used today. :( You would think that those opposing gay marriage would open their eyes to these similiarities.

    There aren't any. Homosexual rights are not even close to being on par to the struggle the Black people have faced. That is a common misconception that the homosexuals want you to buy into for reasons I won't go into here, other than to say they are hoping to ride in on the coattails of the Black movement.

    And I thank you for sharing that with me :p

    That still doesn't change the facts (and no, they don't come from the Agenda playbook, either.. heh)

    Well, Dr. Feelgood, I guess we have to agree to disagree...and it won't be the first time ;) I think the gay rights movement is only trying to establish civil rights for homosexuals, not anything more, no agendas. If there are similarities I wouldn't call it riding someone elses coattails but using tried and true methods of establishing a social presence and working for positive change. The similiarities in responses between both anti-civil rights groups, as mentioned by this article, are striking. The same talks of abomination, same idea that it will damage society to permit marriages, etc.

    I have to also say I disagree with your view on the children of interracial marriages (and of gay unions, adopted or non). Yes, the children may face some ridicule, but hatred is learned. The answer is not to form a homogeneous society where we all look/think/act alike, but to teach tolerance. You don't have to teach your children that homosexuality is the best thing that has ever happened to society, but I hardly see the problem in telling them, from a Christian perspective, that some people live differently but that God loves everyone.

    Not only are some of homophobes but they are against miscegenation.

    Besides does not seem to have bothered Halle Berry one little bit.

    Please don't use homophobe. It demonstrates ignorance and hatemongering, and the last thing we need is more of that.

    I can understand why some people would be against both. Both are against what the Bible preaches. As for me, I have no opinion on the actual interracial marriage. I remain neutral. miscegenation is not a clear abomination as homosexuality is. Nor is it an evolutionary dead-end like homosexuality.

    It just might be a bit selfish because no consideration is given to the child(ren), however.

    Dr Feel good,

    do you know any verses that are against miscegenation in general, and not just the ones telling the Jews not to mix?

    "homogeneous society where we all look/think/act alike, but to teach tolerance. "

    an homogenous society is the end result of miscegenation, it's just a homogenity of a hybrid race.

    Edit:

    for the record, I think Halle Berry is not attractive at all and should not be used to support miscegenation. If anything she's evidence against it.

    I really don't get what people see in her.

    The Jews is what I am talking about. Some use that as a reason to oppose it. I don't, however. I don't follow Jewish Law, nor am I bound to it.

    For this reason I remain neutral in the matter. It doesn't concern me one way or the other. Just the concern for the children and the personal attacks they are forced to withstand. That just isn't fair. Other than that...

    I agree. I don't see anything in her at all. I don't find her remotely attractive. Personal preference of course :) Everyone is different.
