Then and Now

"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. " (From the 1967 ruling by Judge Leon Brazile in Loving v. Virginia. The Lovings, an inter-racial couple married in 1958 in Washington, D.C., were found guilty of violating Virginia's "Racial Integrity Act of 1924," a state law banning marriage between whites and non-whites.)

From today's LaCross Tribune:

The reason same-sex marriage is wrong, says the Rev. Corey Sateren, a pastor at Bethany Evangelical Free Church in LaCross, Wisconsin, goes back to the book of Genesis.

“It’s a natural institution. It’s not a political one. It’s not a social one.”

While it has become political, he said, it’s about truth first.

“It’s like somebody saying, ‘Let’s create a law to say the sun can’t shine,’” he said. “A law doesn’t negate what God put into nature.”
