On this date in 1967, the liberal activist Supreme Court legislated from the bench and forced me to marry a black man:
Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival. Skinner v. Oklahoma, 316 U.S. 535, 541 (1942). See also Maynard v. Hill, 125 U.S. 190 (1888). To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious discriminations. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of the same sex resides with the individual, and cannot be infringed by the State.
As we all know, following the order of Divine Providence, human authority ought not to compel widely-separated races and same sexes to intermix. Yea, verily, it sounds better in the original German...
PS--Quirky historical aside: the USSR's Venera 4, the 1st probe ever to land on another planet, started its mission to Venus on the same day.

Ye Olde USSR did a much better job on Venus landers than the USA.
I strongly suspect the reason was that they used vacuum tube electronics, which survive high temperatures much better than solid state devices.
