Just a thought.
Brother/sister marrying is illegal because of hte genetic mess it can create when having children. Seriously, comparing that? Just as bad as people who compare gay marriage to allowing people to marry animals.

Ok, so for those against gay marriage but for "traditional" marriage (regardless of whether or not govt is involved) answer the same question.

How is this topic relevant? Because it's two adults making a choice, yet being denied marriage because it's morally "wrong". Sounds like you could swap "brother and sister" with "man and man" in this context.

And because it shows that even people who fight for their own "liberation" (as you will), have no problems imposing restrictions upon others.
Gay marriage and incest are on a WHOLE different page. I can't even see how they're comparable

I'm leaving this issue as well. Like Puck, my Christian beliefs mold and shape me into the human I am. I am not a hateful, ignorant, prejudiced moron, but rather a person who does her best to live as instructed by God (who, may I remind you, has instructed us to LOVE on another). I know my stance on this issue, and it is what it is.

I, for one, have NO problem with others hating gay people or disagreeing with gay marriage. I have a problem with people trying to prevent gay people having equal rights.

The bible says that slavery is ace. Should we go back to that?

Ummm, who says the people in question even want children?

Again, I'm not comparing homosexuals with pigs. Do not even try to put those types of words in my mouth.

You're missing the basic point: that people have no problems telling others that they cannot marry, yet get royally pissed off if the same is done to them.

Honestly, I don't know how I feel about brother/sister marriage. There are serious consequences to producing children in such a relationship. And I don't think it would ever come to a legal battle, solely because of the inherent ick factor so I probably won't ever have to decide how I feel.

What I think is that you're snowballing and trying to divert the topic so you don't have to answer the question. I notice that Puck has already bailed on the topic so I'm guessing no one is going to answer.

Sooo....if you are against same-sex marriage, you obviously hate gay people?

I cannot fathom while people lump it into an "all or nothing" situation. I guess because the resulting response more "justified".....?

I didnt say they necessarily did, I am saying pretty sure thats how the law came about Nobility was doing it all the time and having some serious issues so it became taboo. I still dont think its relevant.

I didnt say you compared them to pigs, I said it reminds me of the argument people use against gay marriage, the whole "whats next".

If there were a compelling amountt of brothers and sisters that wanted to get married for legit reasons (ie not being coerced, forced, etc) and could make valid reasons why, I would consider it. Yes, my initial reaction is ick but so what, I would still listen and question my reasons as to why
