    You might be right. I'm Canadian. I've berated people here for what I see as a really false use of the term 'liberal' from my perspective, and I might be guilty of a similar mistake.

    I personally find the idea of incest repulsive, but isn't it hypocritical to support open marriage for all, and not incestuous marriage? It is.

    Marriage should be open to everyone who is of legal age.
    first is not a problem, the second has issues of consent.

    Sounds more like a confused Libertarian.

    Polygamy is illegal.

    Incest can be consentual.

    I support the right of both assuming the people in question are of age. No different than gay marriage.

    your accusation is ridiculous based on the fact that when ever this has come up in a court recently other judges ruled the same way. I also think your slandering this man is disgusting.

    well then you assume we can vote against our Constitutional rights? Then I see you don't understand how the law works.
