The New York Times provides an interesting article on the use of the interracial marriage cases in arguing about same-sex marriage. "...people on both sides of the same-sex marriage issue say there are important lessons from the earlier debate over laws banning interracial marriages, about the reasoning in the Perez decision and about how, over two decades, that decision came to be accepted in the courts, in state legislatures and in the popular culture. Unsurprisingly, they differ about what those lessons are."
