    I'll admit, some milato (mixed race) kids don't work well, and seeing fat white women with skinny black men disturbs me, but if it really is love than no-one should be shunnd for it. Plus, my bf is black and bigger/taller than me, we don't care how things look between us.

    It disturbs you?

    Now that you have shared this, would you care to explain?

    Why am I not shocked, its Kentucky the poorest, most undereducated, most underdeveloped of the four states that are also commonwealths. Outside of Lexington, Louisville, and the Cincinnati suburbs it is nothing but rural hinterlands populated both by narrow minded bible thumping screwballs and pickup truck driving shotgun owning rednecks. icon_razz.gif

    The way that bill is worded, it could easily give a green light to religious extremists.

    The way that's worded, I thought that they were going back to "KY Jelly Original Formula."

    Actually, a closer examination would show that that's not even remotely what the bill says.
    It says nothing about inter-ETHNIC marriages: it is designed to prevent a business from being sued because they won't serve GAY couples.

    As for some mulatto chldren (not 'mIlato") "not working well," what exactly does that mean? How can a child "not work well" unless they have emotionally stunted parents? Children are a product of their environment: mom and dad have anger issues? The child is likely to pick up on that. But I'm not sure how ethnicity is a factor in their growth.

    Sorry I mis-spelt mulatto, just some mixed breeds don't go well, look at dogs for example.

    I fail to see how an overweight hen can be, how can I say it nicely. . . I can't, the thought of it makes me even more gay.

    Also, funny how I thought the bride is supposed to weigh less than the groom. . . lol

    If what I read is any indication, it's designed so that the state can't force you to go against your *religious* beliefs. If your "religious belief" is that whites and blacks should not marry (and it was, for many, for quite some time) then, yes it could be used that way.

    People can interpret it however they wish, but this is not a "religious belief" matter. A matter on religious belief must include "undue hardship" on a business. The clerk who refused to issue gay marriage licenses was overruled by every single court, even though she could decline to sign them. That is not an overturning of a law. And I read the language used in the brief.
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    That article story referenced a SB 180, a bill introduced into the Kentucky state senate on 18 Feb 2016, and the mention of "allowing discrimination against interracial couples" led some readers to infer that the bill in question had made (or would make) mixed-race marriage illegal in Kentucky.

    The bill made no mention of interracial couples, however. Instead, it sought to clarify that under the provisions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act enacted by Kentucky in 2013, businesses could not be punished for violating local ordinances that prohibit discrimination based on sexual preference or gender identity if the discriminatory practices were based on "sincerely held religious beliefs":

    Government shall not substantially burden a person's freedom of religion. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be substantially burdened unless the government proves by clear and convincing evidence that it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A "burden" shall include indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facilities.

    __________________________________________________________________________

    The matter of inter-ethnic marriage and its constitutionality was already eliminated on the grounds of unconstitutionality by The Supreme Court in 1967 ending the Racial Integrity Act of 1924. So this is not germane to the matter at hand.
    It was just a story that was circulated. None of that language was actually included in SB 180. But people sometimes imagine things without use critical thinking to verify a rumor.

    shouldn't they have to "define" religious beliefs before they can make exceptions for them. If I am a "solipsist" can I legally just ignore everyone else and their demands for things like taxes? I mean, they can't base my religion ON anything even if it is just me (by definition). I think they better start putting these "beliefs" down on paper, and making attendance requirements before they start letting people get away with things up to an including murder.

    If this election has said anything at all, it is that there are not enough bible-thumping screwballs to stop a Donald Trump. There's a cultural vacuum, not a cultural bastion.

    Also, it's absurd to argue that mixed-race marriages produce bad children. Why would you suspect that a black-white couple is any less committed than a white-white or black-black couple?
