Well, as a white man married to black woman, let me be the first on this thread to declare that these bans are bullshit. I can't see what possible harm could be done to society by one of these marriages. Not in 1664 (really?), not in 1870, not in 1958, and not in 1967.
What and who does it threaten?
I think busybodies need to find a better hobby.

I agree. These were the same types of people who opposed legalizing gay marriage. For those who don't believe me, the number one reason cited for anti-miscegenation laws in the United States was the bible.

Exodus 34:12-16
"Watch yourself that you make no covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are going, or it will become a snare in your midst."

Acts 17:26
"And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation."

Deuteronomy 7:3
“You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods.”

It's beyond stupid that people would even try to read that deep into it, but when you want to justify hate, holy books are the number one resource for cherry picking one liners if you're willing to ignore the rest of their contents.
