Seriously though, why shouldn't we allow ANYONE - regardless of how many many or how related - to marry if they want? I haven't seen a good argument against this. Maybe there was one, but I missed it.
Yes you have, a whole thread in fact about your nonsense. You just choose to ignore it, for it makes your stance against gay marriage baseless.

what's so hard about 2 unrelated consenting adults?

or are you so desperate to preserve your assumption of the superiority of heterosexuality over homosexuality that you resort to comparing it to crimes?

you know, things that are illegal and that harm people.

homosexuality isn't illegal; homosexuality doesn't harm anyone. in fact, it's homophobia that harms people.

and doesn't the slippery slope work in the opposite direction?

when you start to say, "one man and one woman," what's the next step? "one christian man and one woman of the same faith?" or "one man and one woman of the same race?" or "one man and one woman no more than 10 years age difference?"

Why is this nonsense? Why shouldn't Man A be able to marry his sister Woman B? Assuming they are both consenting adults.

Are you saying that if incest and polygamy were legal, THEN it would be okay to marry?

Like I asked before, if we oveturned the laws against incest - then you would think it's fine for them to marry? Is this correct? And I imagine that you would use the same reasoning in support of polygamy. Correct?

I hope you're listening to yourself, because you aren't making a lick of sense...

What does this have to do with gay marriage?

Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way. Why do homosexual couples want to marry?

Why do straight couples who aren't brother and sister and don't want to have kids get married?

Just face it, there's a reason you are against it and none of it has to do with logic.

I would assume for the same reasons that heterosexual couples want to marry.

You bring this horseshit up every time and it has NOTHING to do with gay marriage. No matter how hard you and your bigoted pals try to align the two.

I'm sick of your shit on this. Really sick of it.

this twists the issue.

there are reaons why incest and polygamy are illegal. if you can convince society that it is a crime for these two things to be illegal, and then you can convince a legislature to decriminalize incest and polygamy, THEN we can talk about mentioning these two activities in the same breath as a contemporary homosexual relationship.

gay people have stood up and asserted their humanity and the legitimacy of their relationships over the past 30 years. laws and much of society has recognized them. if incest participants and polygamists wish to do the same, they are more than welcome. but they have yet to do so, and something tells me that it's a far, far harder argument to make. let's not forget, laws do change. in the 1960s, in the South, you could be married at 13. chances are, Mary gave birth to Jesus when she was about 13. do you want your 13 year old to be able to get married? or has understandings of marriage evolved with the milennia?

and, again, i'll politely overlook the comparison your making between myself and my boyfriend and between a drunk uncle and his 14 year old neice.

AEON -- do you really think that your relationship with your wife is somehow better by definition than my relationship with my boyfriend, even if the two of us were to get married (or whatever's available) in the not-so-distant future?
