Loving v. Virginia, decided June 12, 1967

I have the text below queued up for a facebook post on Sunday June 12.  I'm hoping that theist fb friends will point out that it is unfortunate that appeals to god are misused, allowing me to take it to modern issues such as gay marriage.  Any comments?

Civil Rights Lesson for this day in history...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loving_v._Virginia

The judge who convicted them of violating the Racial Integrity Act quoted "Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix."

Does anyone disagree that this is moronic? 

Are you ashamed that it was really not very long ago?  I can't believe that it was going on during my lifetime.
