Completely irrelevant, as is the entire lame attempt to equate same-sex "marriage" with racial equal rights. A person's race is something over which they have no control. This is a matter of BEHAVIOR; what people DO. Society and the government have EVERY right to control that. Once people can change their skin color or ethnicity, THEN you may have some point there. Until that happens, no. Completely irrelevant.

A little further down the thread, when challenged by me, Tinsldr2 stated that he sees no reason why a mother can't marry her adult son or daughter. As far as I'm concerned, there you have HIS philosophy in a nutshell....... literally a "nut" shell.

Yet another burst of brain-dead babble, Tinsldr2. Society makes all kinds of laws regarding marriage, and they vary greatly from state to state, as I've already written several times. There is NO uniformity of those laws, and in fact marriage is properly a state issue to define, as it has been throughout our history. That's why the age of consent varies, as do many other requirements and qualifications. As to a "compelling government interest"? Any society has the authority to define a moral code of behavior, and its social mores. That's how a society defines itself. Under YOUR ignorant thesis, it's hard to think of ANY issue that unelected judges can't dictate by imperial fiat. Which makes them a ruling oligarchy; a tyranny.

@Tinsldr2 Your "argument" is completely unintelligible. From what I can make out of it, the exact same issue could come into play vis-à-vis same-sex "marriages", if your point is a family's reaction to it. But your last line perfectly encapsulates your position. I will give you props for consistency, as stupid as your position is. To summarize, you don't believe that society has any right or power to define its own codes of behavior or social mores. Fine. History is replete with examples of how well that's always worked out in the past, which is why none of those societies are around anymore, and in fact most collapsed pretty quickly once a lack of any discernible social order set in.

You're just repeating the same old garbage that didn't fly the first time around. And I notice that, just like all lefty morons, you didn't answer the question. So this time, answer it: Why can't Mom marry her adult son or daughter? Hmmmm...?

@WRH Bill I agree with the main thrust of your comment. Marriage has always been a state issue to define, which is why there's no universality to those laws. They vary from state to state. Which then goes back to, and illustrates, the thrust of my comments here: that we're letting unelected, unaccountable black-robed mandarins -- an oligarchy -- legislate from the bench in direct contradiction to the will of the people as reflected in elections. That is tyranny, plain and simple.
