Gay Marriage And Incest Are Pretty Much The Same Thing, Right?
The Gloss ^

Posted on 10/01/2012 10:02:00 AM PDT by MNDude

For starters incest is, by most civilized people, considered a vile union between two relatives. It’s not only frowned upon, but is illegal in most places. (I could totally make an Appalachia joke here, but I won’t.)

Gay marriage, on the other hand, is far from vile. It’s not even in the same category of incest no matter how hard you try to put it there. (This is where the far right jumps in to object.) Yes, it may be illegal in some places at the moment, but not for long. The likelihood of incest ever becoming legal or accepted by society is pretty low — not just because it’s been ingrained in our heads that it’s wrong, but on an evolutionary scale, it doesn’t make sense.

yep. for many reasons.
historically, homosexuality has NEVER been accepted.
(the liberals have rewritten Greek history.
but Plato, Socrates, and others, spoke strongly against it.
so clearly, it was never common or accepted.).
-
yet incest, has been historically accepted.
one example, the Pharohs.
-
and Muslims all over the world, commonly marry 1st cousins.

It IS a vile disgusting, unnatural act. Only to liberals is it considered somehow natural.

Or a Muslim joke. In Islam it is considered okay to marry your first cousin.

But the homosexual argument is always about fairness and the ability to marry the one a person loves. That argument does not invalidate the application toward related partners or multiple partners. In fact, there is no requirement of sexual activity. Marrying one’s relative is not incest unless one engages in a sex act with them.

I see the whole thing as pretty binary. Marriage is either just between 1 man and 1 woman, or else it isn't. When we say 1 man and 1 woman, we reference many centuries of western civilization and we reference the Bible. This is the foundation upon which marriage has been defined for a long, long time.

If you toss aside that foundation and say, "Let's add something more" then it's not a tweak to an old institution. It's a complete destruction of the foundation of the institution. It's not a slippery slope; it's a cliff. Marriage between two men? Fine. 3 people, four people, animals, siblings, little children -- upon what grounds could anyone say any of that was somehow "wrong"? We threw away the foundation and now all bets are off.

1 man, 1 woman. Or else absolutely anything goes.

What about same-sex marriage between two brothers or two sisters? If same-sex marriage is considered okay, what’s the argument against incestuous same-sex marriage?

Actually, probably the word's foremost expert on what the Bible, in its original Hebrew and Greek, says on homosexuality--shows how the Bible treats incest and homosexual practice very much alike. See: robgagnon.net

Homosexual practice however was ALWAYS considered vile and reprehensible, whereas incest wasn't always...and became that way--as genetic defects accumulated in families and tribes--making it a genetic disaster.

Before the Law of Moses, for example (from around 1400 BC) half-brother/sister marriage was practiced by godly Abraham and others, and in pagan cultures, (like Egypt) full incest was practiced (and later, in the Law of Moses, condemned). Of course Adam and Eve's children must of been incestuous--as there was no one else around--BUT, with their pure genetics, at that time it wouldn't of caused genetic problems--those took generations of time to accumulate.

Incest is wrong because of the close family affinity of the couple (eww)....and it is so risky of genetic damage to the offspring, and future generations....

Homosexuality is similarly wrong because of the close sexual affinity of the "couple" (ewww!) and it always results in NO offspring, no future......(the ultimate genetic damage...).

In short the sin of homosexuality is similar to the sin of incest...but, it is even worse.

So having sex with your sister, a male and female relationship between two consenting adults is vile, but dipping your penis in feces is just fine.

If either is fine , incest is the more natural act.

Like poster number 2 says there is nothing evolutionary about homosexuality. No woman ever got pregnant from spit.,and the male does not have a womb .

Well reasoned argument. But, when confronted with the author's epiphaneous, bedrock statement, "The likelihood of incest ever becoming legal or accepted by society is pretty low — not just because it’s been ingrained in our heads that it’s wrong, but on an evolutionary scale, it doesn’t make sense," why bother?

Any person whose reason is so askew, as to not see the correlation with homosexual acceptance, cannot be debated. Her approach to the issue is to present a straw-man shibboleth, and continue her argument as if braced on the shoulders of Atlas. Ergo, as sound as your argument is, it can never sink into the mental process of a liberal and take root. It is as if sowing seeds upon rock.

I think the author isn't a nail-in-poo type, her construction is more tongue-in-groove...

I’m not seeing any. In fact, if ssm goes through, I plan to “marry” each of my sons in order to transfer wealth upon our “divorce” to avoid any pesky inheritance issues.

Far from vile?

Yeah - It's far from vile alright. But on the other side.

Homosexualism and Homo "Marriage" are way, way over the line and well into the utterly putrefying, disgusting, mentally diseased side of vile.

Incest by definition is incest between close relatives of a family. Inbreeding is between father daughter, son mother . Line breeding is Aunt nephew, Uncle niece, cousins. This can cause a lot of problems.

In Islam it is considered okay to marry your first cousin.

Heck, 55% of married British Pakistanis are married to their first cousins - and their children experience genetic disorders at a rate 13x the British norm.

The moral compass has one true north. Homosexuality might be the southern direction, while incest is another direction other than true. Both homosexuality and incest are premised upon lust, but not upon love.

Excellent point, as the argument against incest if the offspring. Can’t happen in that situation.

No doubt, but she exuses the other type with her stupid rhetoric.

Lesbians who engage in sex with other women are simply engaging in Mutual masturbation. They can do the same thing alone.

That is because their parents were married to their first cousins and their parents and their parents and their parents back to when the Muslims conquered them.

Charles Darwin (who is no longer cited for obvious reasons) would say that homosexuality does not propagate the species and therefore does not contribute to its survival.

Vile is defined, described and exemplified by homosexuality.

How they are going to do that is easy, they gain control of the schools and media promote homosexuality as natural and cool.
