If you have "no tolerance at all" then you are intolerant. And have no tolerance for yourself.

More likely, modern incest laws are based on biblical laws that prohibit incest in order to desexualize the home. That's why biblical law condemns inccest even in the case of adoption, where there is no close genetic relationship.

Continued inbreeding may increase some medical problems slightly but occasional inbreeding hardly ever.

So there is no reason I can't marry my sister. Besides, procreation is irrelevant to marriage we have been recently taught, correcting centuries of improper thought.

And sis is SMOKIN' HOT!

Since I'm not a biologist or a medical professional, I have to rely on the Internet. Here's a bit I found... "Inbreeding leads to a higher probability of congenital birth defects because it increases that proportion of zygotes that are homozygous, in particular for deleterious recessive alleles that produce such disorders."

Another article states, "Doctors are worried about all close incestuous parings that result in a child, since such children have a much higher risk of disabilities."

Regarding incest and religion...

--According to most Biblical scholars, it is widely believe that Cain married his sister (since there were no other people on the planet).

--Abraham married his half sister Sara. They shared the same father, but not the same mother.

--Nachor (Abrahamís brother) married Melcha (his niece).

--Two of Lot's daughters got Lot drunk and had sex with him to preserve "the seed" of their father.

--Amram took to wife Jochabed his aunt by the fatherís side: and she bore him Aaron and Moses (so Aaron and Moses were the result of a marriage between their father and their father's aunt).

--Amnon, the son of David, fell in love with his sister, Thomar and had sex with her against her will.

Where do you think laws against incest come from, if not religion?
Incest laws come from not wanting children with a third eye or some other defect. Gays and lesbians can't reproduce as a couple so nothing to worry about there.

You are forcing your religion on us not the other way around. I wouldn't want you at my wedding nor would you be invited. If I marry another man it wouldn't affect you at all. You wouldn't even know it happened. By you imposing your beliefs you are affecting me directly from stopping me from getting married. So before you preach to me please look in the mirror and start with yourself.

It's the same argument as abortion. You can have your beliefs and disagree with it but you can't impose those beliefs upon someone else that does not believe the same thing. It's apples to apples gay marriage is the same thing. You are trying to impose your beliefs upon others that don't agree with you. I hope you are smart enough to realize its the same basis for argument and judgement.

Wouldn't be the same without him and the guy never uses insults.

Unless of course you are a progressive, believing having a different opinion is a grave insult!

What's up with that?
I donít give a darn about any 'holy" texts anywhere

are you not aware that there are thousands of churches that want to preform same sex marriage or are you ignorant of the fact?

There is a very slight risk of first generation incestually born children having medical problems. The bigger problems occur when it continues for a 2nd or 3rd generation.

Any child can have 2 recessive genes which lead to birth defects, not just children of incest. So the chances aren't any higher for the first generation incest born children than any other child.

Can anyone imagine what kind of loser would rig the judge-its? Automatically good for the approved opinion, bad for any other.
