But, Remember, Accepting all of the Arguments in Favor of Same Sex Marriage Would Never Lead to Anything Worse

The state’s (New York’s) highest court has toppled a cultural taboo — legalizing a degree of incest, at least between an uncle and niece — in a unanimous ruling.
While the laws against “parent-child and brother-sister marriages .?.?. are grounded in the almost universal horror with which such marriages are viewed .?.?. there is no comparably strong objection to uncle-niece marriages,” Tuesday’s ruling reads.

Remember: There are no slippery slopes, you’re just a paranoid extremist, and accepting the argument that “the government (meaning the law) has no business in our bedrooms and should never interfere with the love between consenting adults” will never EVER lead to the blessing of polygamy, incest or marrying your favorite video game (this last we could at least dismiss as being merely idiotic, which seems to be the way humanity is going).

And if you think otherwise you’re just a paranoid, bigoted subhuman who should be put in jail for thought crimes.

From one of our favorite sites, Protein Wisdom, from whom we nicked this story:

Though, it makes a convenient excuse for judges who either don’t know, don’t care or are timid about the history of marriage and want to be viewed as Modern and Hip.

Or maybe they just have really sexy nubile nieces that they’d like to bury their rods in one day.

This country really needs a lesson, or the Good L-rd is going to owe Sodom and Gomorrah a serious apology.

Thatisall.

    Good Lord. First cousins are prohibited from marrying in nearly all states, and an uncle and niece are even more consanguineous. What was this judge thinking?

    I’m guessing this lawsuit was filed on behalf of some mohammedan who wants to bring the wonders of his culture of inbreeding (rampant genetic diseases, average IQ 30 points lower than western IQs, etc.) to our shores. But there’s no slippery slope, remember that when your prepubescent daughter is sitting in a stall next to a 40 year old drag queen who “feels more comfortable” in the ladies room.

    However, if you recall, God would not destroy Sodom and Gomorrah while one righteous man remained. Not saying it’s going to be easy, but we still might be able to pull out of this tailspin.

    Damn. This took place in New York. I don’t ever want to hear one more damnyankee make another comment about redneck inbred Southerners.

    (Okay, it sort of gets an asterisk — Vietnamese immigrants in New York. Still, that’s on Yankee soil, and not Florida or Lower Alabama.)

    Still, it boils down to people demanding the right to do whatever repulsive bad habit they’ve got, free from the stigma of shame or stigma from the rest of us, coupled with judges who choose to ignore centuries or millennia of historically-validated sanction and are willing to put their approval of whatever a screwed-up persons feelings dictate. Are we supposed to retroactively tell Woody Allen that his situation is just peachy with us?

    Coming soon to a wedding chapel near you: Lena Dunham will marry her baby sister, the one she admits to molesting and manipulating when she was seven.
