Yes there is, you monster.
Can you marry? By your own definition, you can't!

You have tissue of both genders.

It's clear from my pic I don't have to lose weight.
Do you think you should have been aborted?
What good are you?
During most of civilization, a monster like you would have just been left to die.

Here, again, is an example of "your side" creating arguments against an issue that NO ONE is supporting!
In neither of the two cases discussing same-gender marriages have attorneys argued including same-gender, incestuous marriages.
And has been REPEATEDLY pointed out, not only is incest illegal in this country, but marrying one's family is also illegal.
Why on EARTH would you even bring this issue to the table?
Are you THAT afraid?
Look, I see what you're trying to do... You're trying to show that same-gender marriage will provide a slippery slope (God I hate that term) so that all manner of bizarre marriages will be allowed to take place in the future.
But let me point out that the "slope" began with heterosexual marriage. If marriage had never been invented, then we wouldn't be having this conversation at all.
You need to realize that the courts have ruled that same-gender relationships are protected under the law. THEY ARE NOT ILLEGAL!
Science and medicine have determined that homosexuality IS NOT A DISORDER!
Science, medicine, and the legal system HAVE determined that incest is both illegal and a disorder.
There is NO REASON to believe that allowing same-gender couples to marry will result in incestuous marriages; whether they be gay or straight.
You are using unwarranted fear tactics in an attempt to win an argument. And it's time that you bring the discussion of this ridiculous idea to an end!
Some may be using fear tactics but I am not. I believe in TRUE marriage equality.

When several states have already dismissed the status quo that monogamous heterosexual marriage is the only type allowed, I fail to see the logic in continuing the prohibition against poly marriage.

What harm would a loving poly marriage of three consenting adult women cause anyone?

Unlike gay marriage, poly marriage isn't an equal rights issue.
Why not find a forum about poly marriage?

Speaking on behalf of my fellow dog lovers, I can say our record speaks for itself. There is no other group of persons advocating the RIGHT of the Africans to "marry" White people as well as the RIGHT of two persons of the same SEX to "marry" one another more so than us. That much is clear. As you are a self-processed expert on these matters, I must ask you how we should respond to those who say that decent folks who engage in Homosexual "marriage" and bestiality are acting against nature?

Dogs may eat poop out of the cat box, but they do have some standards. No dog would marry you.

If there isn't a forum about poly marriage, feel free to start one.

I've got to tell you, me amigo; the "marriage" that you're worried about being diminished kind of bit the dust when people started spending more on them than my parents spent on their first house. And those bitter and expensive divorces hasn't helped the institution much either.
Can't blame that on us.
Might not have been your personal decision to make marriages into spectacles, but it was the heterosexual community that created such monstrosities.
Marriage and family took a devastating down turn the last time GOVERNMENT got involved. Then they removed the commitment of marriage, now you want the government to remove children from marriage.

It is your bigotry towards heterosexuals like that stated above that caused me to realize the pointlessness of meeting with you. Quit your whining and hypocrisy.

SMile.

No thanks. This is a perfectly good marriage equality thread.

But feel free to start a "do you think you should you have been aborted" thread. That has nothing to do with marriage equality and is off topic here.

Then what about Tim Tebow's little dip to pray when he enters the end zone? What about a singer who, in front of 70,000 fans, thanks God after a concert? What about the guy who gets on asks a girl to marry him on the "Jumbotron" during a basketball game? What about a church who publicly decries homosexuality--using children to carry hate-filled picket signs?
People who have an issue that is near and dear to their hearts or communities OFTEN use the public media to express them. This is nothing new.
Do you have an "ick factor" when it comes to gays?
I asked you earlier if you were just as offended by gay women are you are by gay men who make public pronouncements. I don't remember getting a response.
Why does it bother you so much to hear about gay people who believe that they have been wronged by the social, religious, and political system?
Can you be specific?
If it is telecast, broadcast, or on the radio, then it is wrong, to me, to use these media to serve oneself. Church is a personal matter, and it is subject to small congregations. I also abhor churches panhandling. Nope, no "ick' factor. I answered you about hating gay women as much as the men, I told you you that I hated none. But I hold men and women equal, so my irritation at "coming out" is equal to both genders. I think that you have gotten the issue a bit muddled, because this question: "Why does it bother you so much to hear about gay people who believe that they have been wronged by the social, religious, and political system?" seems to infer that there is no difference between "coming out" and having a political agenda. Do you believe that they are one and the same?

No one has ever said that children would be removed from marriage. Rather, children will never be a requirement of marriage.

And how can you say that I have bigotry towards heterosexuals? Some of my best friends are heterosexuals.

See how easy it is to take a page from your book?

I will add one thing to my response above... If incestuous marriages "might" result from allowing same-gender marriage; why is it that incestuous marriages didn't spring forth from the legalization of heterosexual marriages?
1. Who 'legalized' heterosexual marriages?

2. Because at it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. For the sake of children. Incest doesn't qualify, which means ss couples don't qualify even less.
