Hey, Frankie, I have taken the lead, even my joke earned me some points, and my mention of my boss got some more. The actual offering was sparse, leading me to surmise that Chongo isn't around tonight, else I'd be plastered with them by now ... Still, I'll take the lead with magnanimous humility.
:-D
Federal Regulations require me, at this point, to thank all the little people, so, consider yourselves noticed, and thanked. I'm sorry for any toes that were stepped, in my progression the top, it had to happen, for me to rise to my natural, and exalted, level.

Yeah that third rate jackass is crude but formidable.

But I can write a 3 word post "I support SSM." and get bad judge-its from these clowns. Top that.

Sorry to hear that Rock.
Thank you, sir. I found out when I awoke in Smyrna, TN. My buddy had called me up, and asked if it was true, and that was how I found out. No-one at my job wanted to tell me.

I'd be on my way to Toledo, Ohio for a quick trailer swap tonight, but a tragedy at work a month ago presents the opportunity for IRS seizure of assets, due to the fact that my boss, who was suffering from the rarest form of leukemia in the world, put a .380 to his head and got off the train at Willoughby. And I found our sally ports blockaded tonight. BTW, my boss was gay, and I loved him like a brother. Used to hang notes on his truck, and his back, "Gay man" and such. We had a great relationship, right up until he lost hope. No-one else at work had the guts to jest with him about it, and I will miss him. Thought I'd throw that one in, just to show that I don't hate gays for a second.
If anyone cares to look at it:

He was like an older brother to me.
My condolences.

Thanks, he was a great guy. Just had a son go into the Army, shortly before my niece went in, and his son went Special Forces. He was so proud, we'd swap notes. My niece is 5' tall 100 lbs and wants to go Airborne.

I honestly can't agree with the "slippery slope" label, as you're right in the rest of your post. I can't see the issue any other way, except to note it as a logical implication, not a slippery slope.
I just don't how a group could come before a court and argue a case that would support incestuous marriage. With all that is known about possible medical issues of offspring, I just don't see it happening.

Bigamists may at some point try to bring their case before a court, but how can they base their on same-gender marriage? Gays aren't asking for the right marry multiple partners.

The US addressed plural marriages with the 1862 Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act and in the Supreme Court case Murphy v. Ramsey.

There is an attorney in Utah, Jonathan Turley, who has files suit against the state; asking that plural marriages become legal. I don't know how far he's gotten.

Anybody in the U.S. has the right to pursue whatever rights they believe they are due.

I just don't think that same-gender marriage is going to lead to or open the door to incestuous or plural marriage.

VV, just to keep things honest between us, I am sure that you have realized that my particular choice of camps is more of an academic one, correct?
Yes... Sorry if I came off too snarky.
