Yes. Modern science has found the medical reasons for the prohibition of incest procreation have been greatly exaggerated.
Also procreation is irrelevant to marriage in this century, right?
I am a New York resident. I can legally marry my first cousin in NY. Why can't I marry my sister?
Also it's like God's way of punishing the degenerates of whome practice such blasphemies!

No thanks. I don't want to sex up my sister, toots. Just want to discuss marriage equality.
So you were being sarcastic. Good lord I hope so! Marriage equality?, Marriage is between a man, woman and God for the final time! If people want to munch carpets, and pack fudge do so on your own filthy time please leave God out of it, it is a slap in his face!

My dear, if God were handing out punishments for "blasphemies", you and I would have been struck dead long ago.

Do you remember a little story about how Christ died for our sins, so that we may be saved through His grace? Look it up sometime...

You nor I have the ability to determine how someone else's behavior or beliefs will be judged. Only God knows.

That's why there's quite a bit of emphasis put on "not judging others" in scripture.

Lighten up a little. Back off. If you don't support same-gender marriage, then state your case and move on.

There's no need to get all worked up over it and start pretending to know God's intentions.

Do you think you glorify God by getting on here and saying such things? Seriously... I think you're doing yourself and God a disservice when you're so angry and use such foul language.

I believe the difference is that very few (at least in here) have the ability to drastically personalize the issue, as VV had done. I was rather surprised, too.
:D
Of the homosexuals that I know most are quite articulate and the majority are in commited long term relationships. The issue is personal for them, drastically.

People like bush and cheney are something else. They are called "Politicians".
I've never heard that use until you brought it in. In the not so distant past it has been used to refer to political figures who've been quick to resort to military action yet avoided any real service themselves. "W" qualifies because his station in life afforded him a pass on combat service. Cheney "had more important things to do."

Yup, illiterate AND uninformed. Inbreeding doesn't mean the offspring will be born with three legs and no brain. Not that I find it appealing.

Look it up it clearly says a man shall not lye with another man! Yes Jesus died for our sins but I think you are justifying this a little too much! It's like me saying it's okay I can go commite a murder but I'll be okay as long I confess my sins because that's what jesus died for! Marriage is HOLY matramony, and when you wed gays, that's like lieing under oath!

You keep quoting a fictional book. It also talks of slaves and gang rape of virgins. Do you believe all of it or just the things that are convenient for you??

If marriage is strictly a religious thing why do you need a marriage license issued by the government and why are divorces settled in court by lawyers? Why can you get married by a priest but also by a judge, mayor or many other government employees? Why do they say by the power vested in me by the state of _______??? All of these things prove it's a civil matter not religious. If you can't see that you are just dumb. You can have your beliefs but don't impose your will upon others. If your beliefs and faith are hat get you by that should be enough for you. Don't hold others from having their own beliefs. That's what this country is about freedom.

Would you argue that since many black people disapprove of interracial marriage, that the laws banning it should have been left in place?
At least try to make a logical argument.
Not "Ohhh Ohhh, I Googled me a gay person who doesn't like other gay people marrying!!!!"
Geesh.
Prove that marriage is harmful to the gay couples and families involved, or prove that married gay couples are harmful to society.
Or stop posting silly things.
One of the major problems with such bans is that they only ban some racial combinations not all. Every marriage applicant would have to be racially classified prior to granting of a marriage license. How is one who is a product of two or more races, to be classified. There are only two sexes, each is needed in order to make more.

"Not that I find it appealing." - Cultural conditioning.

How about this scenario. A brother and sister who never knew each other fall in love not knowing they are related. They later find out. What should they do?

Incest marriage should be allowed. It will be so extremely rare that it's almost guaranteed those against it will never have to be offended by the sight of a happy incestuous family.

Same with consensual adult poly marriage. Won't hurt anyone. Those against it will probably never have to be offended by the sight of a happy poly family.

Because times have changed. God and Jesus are no longer household names, nobody cares! Everything is a civil/government issue. Yeah I don't agree with everything the bible says, I have my questions. But seriously get real people. If you are'nt gay or les. Whatever, are you going to tell me it doesn't bother you to see 2 guys making out going crazy on eachother in front of you. I'm sure it does! You know that uncomftorable feeling you get in your stomach, those are'nt hunger pains, you know deep down ITS WRONG!!

What is it with you and incest dude. Should I be reading between the lines here! You keep trying to justify it and I can't tell if this is sarcasm or if you're being serious!

First, its not a single book, but rather a collection of different types of writtings, letters, poetry, laws, history, etc. "ta biblia".

Second, it is not all fiction.

Third, it was written over a 1500 give or take year period by different authors, in different times and places, and in several languages.

Lastly your view can be just as ignorant as someone who takes it literally.
