Loving v. Virginia, Apples v. Oranges

By Glenn T. Stanton

Folks like Joan Walsh at Salon and Jonathan Capehart at the Washington Post have taken the 44th anniversary (June 12) of Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court case which struck down state prohibitions against blacks marrying whites, to puff a new video by the “dynamic duo” of Ted Olson and David Boies (co-councils in California’s Prop 8 case) lecturing us all on how that truly nasty injustice then is the precise injustice gay and lesbian couples face today. This is a very persuasive argument, not because of its logic, but solely for the emotionalism it stirs. The two have nearly nothing in common.
