Still lacking merit

The current debate regarding same-sex marriage mirrors the debate many years ago regarding mixed-race marriage.

For example, those who oppose same-sex marriage are using the same arguments (cultural upheaval, dysfunctional children, and violating religious beliefs) that opponents of mixed-race marriage used for decades.

However, in 1967 the Supreme Court found that such arguments lacked merit and ruled that laws banning mixed-race marriage are unconstitutional.

I believe the Supreme Court will find that these same arguments, now used to oppose same-sex marriage, still lack merit and the Court will rule that laws banning same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.
