  •  Of course this argument has been made (9+ / 0-)

    in fact, this argument goes o the heart of Loving v. Virginia.

    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.

    •  Ironic that this idiot judge (4+ / 0-)

      issued his ruling exactly 100 years after Darwin published the Origin of Species. If the judge was even minimally educated, he would have realized three things:

      (1) God is irrelevant to human population distribution

      (2) The actual biological differences between human populations are pretty much irrelevant, unless you are excessively concerned about vitamin D metabolism in dark cold climates and skin cancer in hot sunny ones.

      (3) Mixing it up is good; marrying siblings and first cousins is bad.

    •  So if their god placed all the races on separate (0+ / 0-)

      Continents, and did not intend for them to mix, colonization must be a pretty bad sin, right?

      Repeal the 2nd amendment.
