Wisconsin Republican congressional candidate Karen Mueller says the federal ruling striking down the state’s ban on gay marriage will lead to incestuous marriages.

Said Mueller: “We’ve got, for instance, two sisters, and these two sisters want to get married. They love each other. They are committed to each other. They want to spend the rest of their life together.”

She said their lawyers could argue, “‘We can just do away with that state law the same way we did away with sodomy laws.’ Once you do away with that, you reveal what is really going on here.”

    Anyone else getting flashbacks to 1967 and the reaction to Loving V. Virginia overturning state laws banning inter-racial marriages? “Dogs will be sleeping with cats! Think of the children! It’s a slippery slope. Derp blahh blah blah!”
    Imagine what our children and grandchildren will say about this crop of people making these wild claims about gay maariage. I won’t presume to speak for them but it think it will be something akin to the questions we ask now about thethose who stood in the way of Afro-American civil rights. “How could you be so cruel? How could you be so narrow minded? How could you so often be on the wrong side of history?”

      But … dogs do sleep with cats!

      Yes we did hear it all back in 1967 – the shrill screech of the frightened dingbats who simply cannot let others make their decisions (enshrined within their beloved Constitution) based upon Equal Protection.
      Equal Protection ONLY applies to Red Necks who make the rules for everyone else.

    There are still states where it is legal to marry your cousin, as long as your cousin isn’t the same sex.

      Insert music from Deliverance … banjo that is.

      Not sure which states you mean – are these First cousins, or just cousins in general?

      • William June 27th, 2014 at 2:44 pm

        North Carolina is one last time I looked.

    she’s got a point there – just regard the duck jerks and their ilk – pure proof of the pitfalls of incest – but eventually, hopefully, these dimwits will devolve out of the species and become uninteresting extinct fossils.

      But the biblical Duck Dynasty was ordained by god when they took up male domination and grew beards and made money from it. Wondering whether Phil and Miss Kay are first cousins are we all?

    Incest and bestiality is a far fetched leap. You have to go through polygamy first, which is the next step.

    • BanditBasheert June 27th, 2014 at 2:07 pm

      So polygamy leads to bestiality? I thought Farming led to that.

      • R.J. Carter June 27th, 2014 at 2:22 pm

        Specifically sheep herding. Lonely are those hills.

        Everyone knows that, Bandit. The Romney’s are the prime example of this.

    Brothers and sisters can’t get hetero-married, so why would same-sex siblings be able to? How is marrying the *one* *human* individual one loves a gateway to anything but a more fair and free society?

    • R.J. Carter June 27th, 2014 at 2:23 pm

      Well, the taboo against incest is in the genetic product of the offspring. One would assume that two brothers or two sisters couldn’t pull this off, so why force them to adhere to this restriction when the consequences to be avoided simply aren’t there?

    Did the courts strike down Wisconsin’s laws on consanguinity?

    • mmaynard119 June 28th, 2014 at 9:05 am

      No, because the Wisconsin courts couldn’t spell or pronounce it.

    You cannot legislate morality or use political correctness as a substitute. Our fore-fathers knew this way before our country and constitution came into being. That is why in the beginning the bible was held in such high esteem. The purist had the first bibles that had been translated into English and it opened their eyes to morality and Gods idea of morality compared to mans.

    The Elites have managed to corrupt us to the point of collapse proving our for-fathers were right, with out the morality and guidance of a higher authority taught in the bible we cannot maintain what we have or had in this case. You can’t break God he breaks you.
