Marriage Cannot Be Redefined - Jeff Jacoby - Townhall Conservative



 As Jeff Jacoby points out in his article , no law can fundamentally change the true meaning and intent of marriage.  The following excerpt is from his article (with my emphases added):

  • "When the Supreme Court ruled in June 1967 that Virginia's law penalizing interracial marriage could not stand, it was not changing the fundamental and enduring meaning of marriage: It was affirming it. It was upholding the integrity of marriage by protecting it from irrelevant -- and unconstitutional -- racial manipulation. Virginia had interfered with the core elements of marriage in order to promote white supremacy, a value completely alien to marriage. Marriage is designed to bring men and women together; anti-miscegenation laws frustrated that design, and could not stand."
