Is some parts of the world, marrying your father's brother's daughter is SNAFU. When they say it's healthy most of the time, they are just talking about birth defects.

As Dick Cheney joked the other day, it goes on in West Virgina too, but apparently there's nothing all that wrong with it, so cut the guy some slack.

It's a proven fact that when the gene pool becomes too close, there are genetic flaws. This was common among the aristocracy of Europe. The hemophilia problem of the heir to the Russian throne was a direct result. In England, the many quirks and strange ways of people are a direct cause. Homosexuality is thought to have it's origins in a very limited gene pool.

Homosexuality has its roots in sex with your cousin ???!!! What planet are you on ?! You have a source for this you can cite ?

There is nothing wrong with sex with your cousin. In fact, the Bible commands that a person marry their cousin. It is customary in many countries and cultures. None of the major religions, such as Roman Catholic, the Orthodox churches, nor any Protestant churches prohibit it. Neither the Jews nor Muslims prohibit it. There is no biological reason to prohibit it. Most states in the U.S. allow it.

The only reason some people are opposed to cousins marrying and/or having sex is sheer prejudice.

My cousin gave great head (and probably still does) when we were teenagers but I wouldn't have wanted to marry her. She was just good to dump into.

The closest I ever came was the first cousin of a first cousin. Not related at all. Oh well, it was fun anyway.

Rednecks have been doing it for years.

There is a reason they all have names like Billy Jo Bob and Bubba Sue and mothers are also their aunt and first cousin.

Such an arrangement will erase any doubt of our mission and ensure

I read this full artcile, and the fact o fhte matter is inbreeding usually takes few generations before the deformities begin to appear, that's also common sense, by the way, resessive genes are called recessive genes for a reason. They are LESS likely to show up in a subsequent generation. Just in case, though, when I sleep with my cousins I'm gonna use a condom.
