OK. Here's what I got from another board about this subject. You can tell from my wording that I'm trying to make people think over there.
Leftist - "But why is Bush so opposed to it?? That's what I wanna know. Why is so much fu**ing time, money and energy spent by the government on such ridiculous issues?? WHy do they feel the need to deny equal rights to all citizens?? There is so much more they could be doing instead of trying to take rights away from citizens."
RandallFlagg - "I have no idea. But, answer my first question: Why aren't Brothers and Sisters allowed to marry?"
Leftist - "From what I understand is this. When family members reproduce, the child they preoduce is more likely to suffer from mental retardation. I don't know how accurate that is, but that's what I understand from what i have heard. Correct me if I am wrong."
RandallFlagg - "Chromosomal defects, you are correct. Is that why it's not allowed?"
Leftist - "I suppose so. What's your point??"
RandallFlagg - "Then, let's say that Brother and Sister still want to get married and will then adopt children (seeing that they can't have their own). Would you have a problem with this?."
Leftist - "Under those circumstances I would have no problems with that at all."
RandallFlagg - "OK, same circumstances, what about Father and Daughter? Mother and Son? Brother to Brother? Sister to Sister?"
Leftist - "As long as it's two CONSENTING CAPABLE ADULTS, I have no problems with it."
Kinda makes ya wonder....
