Why Not Incest?


Gay marriage used to bring the same reaction you just had to this headline. Think of all the things they are going to try to make normal now.
Check it out:

Jeremy Irons is making headlines for his hesitancy on gay marriage and whether it might lead to incestuous marital relationships if only to avoid estate taxes. Irons says,

Could a father not marry his son? … It’s not incest between men. Incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don’t breed… If that were so, then if I wanted to pass on my estate without death [taxes], I could marry my son and pass on my estate to him.

The interviewer was dismissive, but why not incest? Because of tax problems? Is’t that why Ms. Windsor went to the Supreme Court to begin with — taxes?

Seriously. Why not incest.

The left is championing what Senator Mark Kirk said last week when he decided he would support gay marriage. Senator Kirk said, “Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back — government has no place in the middle.”
