Sigh. These arguments again? Was the post supposed to be funny? This is the HURL board you know. I hate to even respond to this since it should be at PA or somewhere else...but here goes anyway...

Point 1: Why it's legal for the government to outlaw "group" marriages.
Because it doesn't discriminate against a class. You might think it's unfair not to allow group marriages, but it's not illegal. Otherwise, I'm going to sue Congress because I want a tax deduction on ALL my homes, and not just my primary home? Why should those with several homes not get equal protection? It's unfair no? Well that's just the way it is. One home per person gets special tax status. Applies to everyone. Those who own multiple homes have not had their civil rights violated. Same logic applies to group thinking. Everyone gets to marry ONE person. Do whatever you want with MORE THAN ONE person, just don't marry more than one.

Point 2: Incest.
Currently brother/sister marriages would meet the definition of one man and one woman. Yet we do not allow those. And no one is saying we should. Why would allowing gays to get married all of a sudden bring a rash of brothers to the courthouse demanding to get married, when currently opposite-sex siblings are not?

Do I also have to explain how allowing gay marriage won't lead to beastiality or people wanting to marry their teddy bears?
