Interracial and Same Sex Marriages

Standard

I see this argument all the time. People compare the banning of same-sex marriage to the banning of interracial marriages. The latter has been reversed, so logically the former should be as well.

While at first glance, that seems to be a valid argument, upon further thought, it’s not a fair comparison. Briefly, here’s why.

Sexual relations between a Black man and white woman are essentially the same as between a white man and white woman. Both have the potential to produce offspring, which is really the whole point. However, sexual relations between a man and woman are not the same as between a man and man or a woman and woman. The former can naturally produce offspring, the latter can not. So really, this argument is kind of like comparing apples and oranges. And that is all I have to say, for now. Peace and Blessings!
