Recently, several states have made honest attempts at protecting the traditional meaning of marriage. For daring to oppose the activist judges who seek to erode religious and cultural values, they have been viciously attacked by the media.

It should be emphasized that the process of constitutional amendment is necessary in order to protect marriage from immorality. This immorality is even promoted on TV shows, such as “Six Feet Under,” which features a blatantly mixed-race couple, Keith and David.

Traditionally speaking, marriage is between people of the same race. Miscegenation, the practice of marriage between races, is a recent perversion of our culture. It is not practiced by the majority of civilized people.

As Leon Bazile, a calm-headed and reasonable Virginian judge, said, “Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And, but for the interference with his arrangement, there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.”

Such an amendment does not conflict with the right of all people to marriage. Black people would still be able to marry. It’s just that they would be restricted from marrying white people. It has been claimed that this effectively creates two separate types of marriage, but the misguided people who claim this obviously do not realize that separate institutions are not always a bad thing, provided care is taken to ensure that they are equal. The U.S. Supreme Court’s undisputed ruling in Plessy vs. Ferguson makes this clear.

Biologically speaking, interracial coupling is unnatural. It does not occur in other species – you will never see a black Labrador and a German shepherd having sex, for instance. Some pundits have apparently forgotten that it does not occur naturally in humans either. Normal people never make the choice – and, yes, it is merely a choice – to feel sexual attraction toward a member of the opposite race.

Imagine what would happen if a black man and a white woman adopted a child. This child, lacking proper upbringing, would obviously not be able to function in society. Without any role models on whom he could rely, he would be one among many victims of the destruction of the nuclear family.

What’s more, allowing interracial marriage would serve to legitimize them in society. Surely this cannot be allowed to happen. Next thing you know, people with deviant interracial lifestyles will be teaching in our schools and infesting our churches.

Anyone considering the issue need only think about marriage for a moment to see that it clearly cannot be altered in this way. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and some black woman.
