Weekly Dose of Dialogue: Marriage

Two newlyweds are fighting for the dismissal of the justice of the peace who refused them a marriage license because they are of different races. Full story on CNN.com.

If you change race to gender/sexuality, does this story arouse the same response from the government? From the public? Within the past century (or even within the past 50 years?) the country's stance on inter-racial marriage has gone from a point where this story would be "nothing new", to where we are today, where it is the exception, rather than the rule. Will same-sex marriage make the same transition? Where are we in the process?
