"...There has been a spirited debate going on about the implications of Loving for the status and rights of same-sex couples in our society." David Orgon Coolidge
As society moves forward with an ever increasing momentum for the mainstream normalization of homosexuality - many proponents of same-sex marriage, consider the Supreme Court case of Loving Versus Virginia - their greatest hope for persuading the public to join their cause for "equality".
There are few, if any same-sex marriage proponents, that do not literally cling to their interpretation of equality and equal rights for homosexuals, on the basis of the verdict of Loving versus Virginia. However, that Virginia versus Loving was ever anything more than a racial discrimination case - has been hotly debated for over 40 years.
The very popular "Loving Analogy" and the reference to the gay agenda playing the "Loving card" are rampant among homosexual activist, today. The reason for this - is because that's really all they have. If the proponents of same-sex marriage can convince you, that their cause is one of equal rights - as comparable to Loving versus Virginia - then right there - they have you. Of course, they already believe that they do!
Ever since the Supreme Court decided Loving v. Virginia and declared that laws banning interracial marriage were unconstitutional, same-sex marriage advocates have claimed that laws restricting marriage on the basis of a person’s gender are just as unconstitutional as laws restricting marriage on the basis of a person’s race. Despite overwhelming support for this claim within the academic community, few judges have accepted the argument that same-sex marriage bans constitute sex discrimination or even that they make a gender classification triggering heightened scrutiny.

Regardless of what your moral compass, whatever that may be - is telling you about same-sex marriage being just wrong -- you may be forced to concede.
"Whether you like it or not"!
This is exactly the attitude of the gay agenda, when it comes to trying to insist that same-sex marriage is an "equal right"! The push to accept the "Loving Analogy" interpretation, has been so successful, that for many today - it is considered a "self-evident" fact.
Thankfully, it is very easy to see - when studied, that this is just not the case, at all. It has become apparent to this writer, that the "Loving Analogy" has been perpetuated by an extremely liberal agenda, including the help of both social media and academia.
You will find it nearly impossible to find those who will stand up against the current trend, with the help of Virginia versus Loving - and to say, that same-sex marriage is not an equal right. You are much more likely to find those with views, that go so far as to say, that it is because of Virginia versus Loving, that we must approve same-sex marriage - as an equal right!
Fact, in a five year period from 1990-1995, there were 75 law reviews or essays published in legal periodicals, on the Loving versus Virginia case. Of those 75, a whopping 69 were openly supportive of same-sex marriage. Only ONE, supported the traditional definition of marriage - between a man and a woman! You could also surmise, that what has been written since, about the Loving versus Virginia case, has been based on these original reviews and essays.
This evidence reveals, that the information that has been broadcast to the public - no doubt, has been very biased toward the gay agenda, by the liberal media. Most folks, like you and I - don't usually go digging up court documents, etc... to get all the facts. Instead, we generally rely on the "so-called" experts to extract the most important information for our understanding. And, trusting as we tend to be - we accept their interpretations, as fact.
Due to the extreme weight that is being used by the proponents of same-sex marriage, using the "Loving Analogy" to support their plea for equal rights - the time has come, that you and I, must for ourselves understand, how this is just not the case. It's time to educate, so that we can better debate and stand with greater effectiveness - in our ongoing desire to preserve traditional marriage!
Today, I've merely introduced the "Loving Analogy" to you, my readers. In my next post, we will go a bit more into the argument itself, so that we all will understand better, how it is NOT appropriate to compare racial discrimination, to the current debate about same-sex marriage as an equal right - for those who practice homosexuality.
