My honey said he sends his best Arf! Arfs. He said he hopes, if our Homosexual friends and the lesbians "pave the way", our canine friends will soon be able to marry the honeys of their own choosing.

Some bigots try to justify their prejudice against consanguineous sex and marriage by being part-time eugenicists and saying that such relationships inevitably lead to “mutant” or “deformed” babies. This argument can be refuted on several fronts. 1. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. 2. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. 3. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects. 4. We don’t prevent other people from marrying or deny them their reproductive rights based on increased odds of passing along a genetic problem or inherited disease. It is true that in general, children born to consanguineous parents have an increased chance of these problems than those born to nonconsanguineous parents, but the odds are still minimal. If a natural talent or gift runs in the family, the children will also be more likely to inherit and manifest that beneficial result as well. But there are increased odds of problems with births to older parents, too. There's no stigma assigned to that. These days, older women having children is actually especially celebrated, at least in the US. There is certainly no law against it.

Unless someone is willing to deny reproductive rights and medical privacy to others and force everyone to take genetic tests and bar carriers and the congenitally disabled and women over 35 from having children, then equal protection principles prevent this from being a justification to bar this freedom of association and freedom to marry.

Great rebuttal fruitcake.
Let's just cut through all your bullsh!t. I support marriage equality and you do not. So climb down off your high gay horse and realize there are others deserving of the same equality you are demanding.
Re-read some of your hate filled posts. What harm would a marriage of three gay men cause you? What harm would a marriage of two brothers cause you? You act disgusted. How do you feel when people act disgusted over gay marriage? You are they.
A marriage between three brothers who I don't know, would have no impact on my life.

Earlier I posted an article about two kids who were taken from their mother's custody because she was discovered, passed out with cocaine in her system and the kids were living in squalor.

Their situation didn't impact me either. But I'm not ready to drop laws against child abuse and neglect.

Keep trolling. And please get back to me when you've found "experts" who agree with incestuous marriage.

I agree. Our homosexual friends are making rapid progress towards true marriage equality. Soon your struggle may be won.

I will find the research for you. Adverse amplification of bad genetics due to inbreeding has been recently found to be greatly exaggerated.

Also any amplification of bad genetics traits is counteracted by the same amplification for good genetic traits. For example artistic talent, intelligence and athletic body type to name just a few.

I'm sure you won't read the links I posted because you think you know everything about the genetics of incest since you're
a social "scientist". With a Masters in handing out welfare checks.

Why is it that when someone wary of same sex marriage says anything about procreation they are shouted down with the "irrelevant" argument but when incest marriage is mentioned suddenly the procreation argument becomes valid and very important VV?

Does procreation matter or not? You can't have it both ways. Make up your mind then I'll post links to research on incest genetics suggesting the taboo is not justified biologically.

Trying to protect them?

Why does Glendora, California allow fly-by-night contractors to build in this city?

Only answer is "kick-backs" to city officials and elected officials.

When ever the city gets involved in a project it goes to HECK in a hand basket.

Cheap threads like the ones from Glendora city hall:

Cretin... Same-sex partners are not going to have a genetic offspring. Opposite-sex siblings who are having an intimate relationship are likely to have a genetic offspring.

Are you 100% sure that you weren't the result of an incestuous pairing? Is your father also your brother?

Yes I am sure my father is not my brother. If you have an argument against marriage equality besides insults and ad hominem, get back to me.
