Skip to comments.Actor Adam Baldwin: If we accept same-sex ‘marriage’, why not let fathers marry sons for tax breaks?

Adam Baldwin, an actor best known for his performances in Full Metal Jacket, The Patriot and Firefly, outraged homosexual activists last week by questioning why marriage redefinition should not apply to single fathers who love their sons and want to enjoy all the tax benefits of marriage.
What's wrong, now, with a father marrying his son for love & to avoid tax penalties? Baldwin wrote on Twitter.
The actor has earned a spot on many liberal enemies lists by using the micro-blogging site to share his outspokenly conservative opinions on pro-life, family and second amendment issues.
Baldwin received an avalanche of angry replies criticizing him for comparing homosexuality to incest. He replied: Who said anything about sex, H8rs?! This is a Liberty & ca$h deal! Love ≠ Sex.
Summing up his detractors comments, he added, Shorter H8rs: Fathers & sons can't love each other absent sex acts! ~ #PolymorphousPerversity #SSM
Baldwin says his comments were prompted by a statement from Matt Blevin, who is mounting a primary challenge against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

If its all right to have same-sex marriages, why not define a marriage because at the end of the day a lot of this ends up being taxes and who can visit who in the hospital and theres other repressions and things that come with it so a person may want to define themselves as being married to one of their children so that they can then in fact pass on certain things to that child financially and otherwise," Blevin told conservative radio host Janet Mefferd. Where do you draw the line?
Blevin and Baldwin are not the first to have asked the question. Last year, British actor Jeremy Irons drew fire for similar remarks about marriage redefinition and tax breaks, telling the Huffington Post, Tax wise, its an interesting [question], because, you see, could a father not marry his son?
When the interviewer accused Irons of comparing homosexuality with incest, Irons, like Baldwin, disagreed.
It's not incest between men, he said. Incest is there to protect us from having inbreeding. But men dont breed so incest wouldn't cover that. But if that was so, if I wanted to pass on my estate without estate duties, I could marry my son and pass on my estate to him.
After Irons comments were widely circulated online and mocked by liberal commentators, the actor posted an open letter on his official website addressing the interview. He denied criticism that he is anti-gay, saying instead he simply wanted to have an honest discussion about the potential unintended consequences of a redefinition of marriage.
I was taking part in a short discussion around the practical meaning of Marriage, and how that institution might be altered by it becoming available to same-sex partners, Irons wrote. Perhaps rather too flippantly I flew the kite of an example of the legal quagmire that might occur if same sex marriage entered the statute books, by raising the possibility of future marriage between same sex family members for tax reasons, (incest being illegal primarily in order to prevent inbreeding, and therefore an irrelevance in non-reproductive relationships).
He admitted his example was mischievous, but said it was nonetheless valid.
I am sure it is on their list.
Lieberals are ‘smarter than God’ ay? What a Pandora’s Box of twisted perversions they will make of marriage.
Yep, coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
Do you realize all HELL is about to break loose?
Have another doughnut and give me 50 pushups.
Oh!! ADAM Baldwin....for a minute, I thought Alec had come to his senses....
Thank God for the sickle cell
Next will be legalizing having sex with children, that is next on the liberal list
interesting premise....if we are being attacked as workers and savers and law biding citizens, why not use their stinking laws to save money?
Well,well....a couple of actors with Balls!
Jeremy Irons was gret in the movie Moonlighting,about Polish workers in London during the Solidarity period. See it!
I guess he figures his career is over already?
My thoughts exactly. Even though he is one of my favorite actors, methinks his career is over with this article.
I love Ricky Linderman!!!!!!!!
He is really peed at lesbo Maddow now.
Go get her Alex!
Alec is waiting until he can marry himself. After all, no one else quite measures up.
Are you quitting on me? Well, are you?
I had a similar reaction myself.
