    Yeah, I read about the commercial elsewhere. Incredibly sad that something like that innocuous ad would spark so much outrage and hate. We still have a looooooong way to go in this country.

    Their religion tells them interracial marriage is bad. So I think we need to be respectful of this viewpoint, otherwise we are the true bigots.

    Even better, the first TV ad with an interracial couple aired at least 15 years ago.

    So nobody has been paying very close attention.

    Anybody who was surprised this ad would generate racist comments on YouTube has clearly never read YouTube comments.

    Yep. YouTube commenters are the lowest of the low.

    I don't know of anywhere in The Good Book where interracial marriage is frowned upon. Believers marrying unbelievers, yes, but race, no.

    No, it's more of a "Christian culture" thing, rather than a direct biblical mandate. But things that have been part of a culture for generations don't die out overnight.

    I understand it is hard for people who grew up differently to understand the mindset. I was emersed in it from birth. The entire family, extended family, friends, basically everyone I ever knew subscribed to this way of thinking. So it sort of got passed down to my siblings and I almost by osmosis. I never thought much about it, because I was never exposed to anything else. It's just the way life was.

    This is like bitching about Ike jokes. Way past this now.

    However, the first gay couple is coming to a cereal near you soon. Totally different story there.

    Mark, that's BS...unless you think Westboro Baptist reflects much of Christendom. Then it's more than BS.
