Supporters of gay marriage must then admit that there should be no rules against polygamy, brother/sister or any other combination of consenting adults. Are they willing to admit they support that position?

I didn't know they held that position. Are you really sure that's true? Who told you that? Did you read it somewhere? Please tell us more.

Their position is obviously that the government has no right to interfere in the decisions of consenting adults to enter into marriage. Once you go down that road, you open yourself up to all kinds of inconvenient things. Go it now?

Supporters of straight-only marriage must then admit that there should be no rules against polygamy, brother/sister or any other combination of consenting adults. Are they willing to admit they support that position?

It's actually easy to see things from the other side, isn't it? I don't have any basis whatsoever to make that claim above. I just said it because it was provocative and untrue just like in your original post. Is the lack of truth an inconvenience to you?

If that floats there boat let them.. They too will be looked at differently by all. I personally wouldn't do it, they have a chance of having children and that child will be deformed.

They already support restrictions on the definition of marriage, so how can you claim that they simultaneously support no restrictions as well?

The only thing that is easy to see is that you're an idiot, which is extremely common among liberals.

You just said it because you obviously have no way to defend your position, otherwise you would have.

"Lack of truth", otherwise know as "lies", are necessary for liberals given the graceful things they actually believe but most are at least smart enough not to say out loud among normal people. Thankfully there are those like you that aren't than smart. Keep up the good work.

Yes, I bluntly do. In the old days such taboos were necessary because existing technology could not prevent their disastrous side effects. Pre-marital sex was wrong before birth control existed because it produced unwanted babies. When someday genetic engineering can change the genes of closely related persons so that offspring don't come out inbred, close relative weddings should be legal.

Look, I don't give a rat's ass what the Bible, the Quran, the Bhagvad Gita or any scripture says. I only care about the freedom and happiness of consenting adults. Instead of asking "does my theology approve?", lawmakers should only ask: "Will this produce some tangible and objective harm to living beings?"

I don't even care if some fool chooses to marry a goat. For eight years we had an inter-species couple in the White House. A human female named Laura Bush married to a male jackass called George W.

In a world that thrives on "Political Correctness" I believe the word of God
to be the ultimate "Correctness",
God says it's wrong. I stand with Him.
And being a woman, I don't mind for one
minute calling God a Him.
That's one of the beautiful things about living in America, we can agree to disagree.

Friday, June 24th 2011 will go down in infamy in the State of New York as the day that four trusted Republican legislators sold their souls and their votes to the Sodomites and *** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

We have it in our power as voters to ensure that this never happens again with these false Republicans. These are their names...

(1) JAMES S. ALESI - Monroe County New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(2) MARK GRISANTI - Western New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(3) ROY J. MCDONALD - Rensselaer, Saratoga Counties New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(4) STEVEN M. SALAND - Columbia and Dutchess Counties New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

NEVER FORGET THOSE FOUR NAMES.

If any of these these creatures ever dares to run for public office in this State again...

VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!
