    A marriage, religiously, is a union between a man and a woman.

    I have a bigger problem with the divorce rate.

    What LBBC is trying to get across, is if you believe that you shouldn't tell two adults whether or not they can get married, then why do you think it is OK to tell a brother and sister to not get married?

    I have an equal problem with it. Both are wrong.

    I don't think it is anyones business who someone marries. I don't see the harm and don't understand why to control someone who don't agree with.

    The divorce rate does bother me, but I know you can't control that.

    I think there are two issues. The first is the legal rights conferred by marriage. I can't think of a compelling state interest in controlling the civil union of adults. The second is sacrimental marriage. To me, that is a matter for individual churches to establish for themselves.

    That is my point. If you want to take the argument that two consenting adults should be allowed to do what they want, than you open that Pandora's box of how are you going to say incest between two adults is illegal and wrong.

    Okay, you have NOW contradicted yourself in a short period of time.

    You are for telling an adult brother and sister they CANNOT get married.
    But are not for telling two adult males or females.

    Which is it H20? Do you want to tell adults what they can do or not?

    Isn't is possible that a child born through incest is more likely to have problems?

    First of all, you are dead wrong. I did not contradict myself. I asked a question. I asked if incest was illegal. Is it?

    You should really try and read what I am saying rather than skimming it and thinking you "got me" on something.

    Why is incest illegal? Is it because of health reasons for potential offspring?

    What health problems does a homosexual relationship pose? Can you think of any?

    I believe that homosexuality does pose health risks. For graphic nature, if you are curious, you can PM me, or search yourself.

    I'm suprised no one has brought animals into this debate yet. That's usually where it goes when we try to point out the sins of homosexuality.

    Any "priest" that did that would be removed from his priestly duties by the church.

    What if one of the partners is sterile?
