You're putting words into my mouth. It does not affect me, therefore, I am not partaking in ridiculous debates against it. Live and let live.
Honestly, if siblings want to marry, so be it. It happens anyways. It is illegal, however, because of the clear health problems that can be passed down to the child through incestuous intercourse. There are no such threats in gay marriage.
Nor are there such threats with same sex siblings.
I feel you are arguing from this conservative, "the sacred definition of marriage" bullshit that is getting old. Times change--get over it.
You dodged the question. Where is the line drawn? SSM? Polygamy? Polyamory? Siblings?

Makes sense. A lot of companies proxy their IP there, since it is in the middle of the nation. Your first post sounded like something someone from Topeka would say though...you gotta admit that.

I did answer your question indirectly: I don't care. Polygamy is illegal, yet Mormons do it. Legal or not, lines drawn or not, it will get crossed by those who seriously believe in it. As I fear your comprehension may be low, I will reiterate- I DON'T CARE. Answering the same question semantically altered is getting tiring. Let me phrase it bluntly, screw your ancient definition of marriage.

Different culture. As far as I knew gays didn't dare to come out in the 70's and early to mid-80's.
Went to high school with a kid who became an Olympic medal winning diver who came up gay (not Louganis FYI). We never knew. One of my best friends turned out to be bi-sexual. Found out in my 30's. Blew my mind. If they were to pop up as being gay back in the day there's no doubt they would have gotten a daily beating.
The education they're offering kids in school or attempting to is a good thing. Teaching that gays are just another element of the fabric of society. Christ brother...they're supposed to number about ten percent of the population. As even 'Pietro Almondando' or whatever the fool calls himself in here would say; 'Thatsa lotsa peoples'.
Haha that is a lot of people. I think education is becoming much more tolerant of diversity and changes. I think the generation younger than me is even more tolerant to sexual orientation that you cannot tell what gender they are anymore (i.e. skinny jeans). That look was gay back in the day, but now its the in thing. Gays can hide in plain sight now.
