I see no reason for government to interfere with any sort of consensual relationship; nor should government sanction, certify, or promote any relationship, other than traditional marriage. Marriage is a legal framework, set up for a specific purpose (to provide family stability and a measure of social and financial security for wives who generally don't work outside of the home). As for other arrangements, no one should receive any legal or financial benefit (survivors benefits, automatic rights of inheritance, community property, insurance coverage, etc.), based on their sexual proclivities, or be subject to any legal responsibilities, other than what they contractually agree to.

Marriage is not a legal framework. God created marriage when he joined Adam and Eve.

I remain baffled at those who quote scripture as if it was done on a typewriter. Marriage is a legal framework, there is no other way, and it is done as such for protection by the laws of the state where the marriage was conducted. My marriage cost $20 and has lasted 45 years. My in laws hated me until I helped produce children and they still hated me, but love my children which look exactly like me. Only law protected my wife and children from my in laws. God facilitated unions and man gave those unions protections under marriage laws.

While I find homosexuality (and most of the other behavior mentioned here) to be unnatural and disgusting, there is no reason to punish people who want to live this way, provided they aren't legally, or financially rewarded (at our expense) for doing so.

If all human beings should have the right to marry (or simply be with) the one they love, as proponents of same-sex marriage constantly tell us, then why shouldn’t adult, incestuous couples enjoy that same “right”? Hollywood director Nick Cassavetes is the latest to say, “Why not?”, and I for one am not in the least bit surprised.

Simply stated, with the public endorsement of same-sex relationships, the endorsement (or at least acceptance) of consensual, adult, incestuous relationships is the next step. Consider the following:
