Description:

The paper asserts that same sex marriage is denounced by some as an abomination and an affront against society, yet the same was said about whites and blacks marrying just half a century ago. In fact, the paper reveals that the union that produced President Barak Obama was illegal in several states at the time of his birth and it took the 1967 Supreme Court decision of "Loving vs. Virginia" to sweep away all prohibitions against mixed race marriages in the United States. The paper discusses how state supreme courts in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa have done the same with laws prohibiting same sex marriage because the right to marry the person of your own choosing is a civil rights issue. The paper also discusses how California's court allowed same sex marriage until the passage of Proposition 8 on November 5, 2008 after an alarmist campaign that spent $43 million dollars to convince people that gay marriage weakens families. The paper argues that as the courts are increasingly recognizing, same sex marriage should be allowed.
