This is really pathetic but it’s a truth that we need to remember. Religion is used to justify many hateful acts. This is one reason why I am not subscribed to any religion.
From Mother Jones Magazine on Loving v. Virginia:
Just over a month after the Lovings’ homecoming, police raided their place at 2 a.m., arrested the couple, and threw them in jail. Leon Bazile, a judge for the Caroline County Circuit Court, convicted them on felony charges. “Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay, and red, and he placed them on separate continents,” the judge wrote. “The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.”
