Marriage is a contract between 2 consenting human adults. Unless these hypothetical laws want to grant personhood and citizenship to dead bodies, fauna, flora, and inanimate objects, the "slippery slope" doesn't exist.

My old testament is correct. Levirate Marriage was given by god in Deuteronomy 25:5-6. Also, Deuteronomy 22:28-29 is where a woman who is raped must marry her rapist. Exodus 21:4 shows where a slave owner can arrange marriages between slaves. God remained silent regarding Jacob and his 2 wives, Abraham having children with his wife and her slave, or with Moses telling soldiers that they can marry virgin prisoners of war. Perhaps one should read the OT more thoroughly before claiming others are ignorant.

One more thing, gay marriage would not open the door between incestual marriage as there are already laws against it. One cannot marry a corpse as the corpse is no longer a citizen and cannot enter into any contract. Marrying a tree, an animal, or an inanimate object could not occur since neither are considered citizens and cannot enter into contracts, let alone give consent. Marrying a child cannot happen because while children are citizens, they cannot give consent and any contract a child may enter on their own is not legally valid.

While marriage between a man and woman was "ordained by god", marriage between a man and woman and concubines; a man and woman and woman ad infinitum; a childless widow and her dead husband's brother; a rapist and his victim; a soldier and his female prisoner of war, were also "ordained by god". As for how gay marriage would violate religious freedom, do weddings between 2 atheists violate that freedom? Or for that matter, do marriages involving 2 believers of (insert religion here) violate the religious freedom of (insert a different religion here)? I have heard of no supporter of gay marriage wanting religious institutions to perform weddings. Religion in marriage is optional.
