Similar arguments

I know a common rebuttal to many religious objections, say for example concerning gay marriage, is to say "That's what people said about interracial marriage in the '50's" or something like that.

Does anyone have any links to these arguments being used back then? What are some other examples of this kind of retrofitting of arguments by the religious?

I think I heard on the show once that religious folks against the abolition of slavery basically said that people who wanted to free the slaves were "atheists and progressives".
