    As with many Justices thru out American history, Antonin Scalia almost always puts his personal political philosophy before actual "originalist" interpretation
    So do YOU consider yourself an original intent guy? Or do you just hate Scalia?

    But, hey, it does raise the question of whether there are any stats on children raised by incest parents.
    Anything on that? Anecdotal or otherwise?
    Wow, you are so out in far right field, it's amazing.

    Incest is illegal, Being in a gay relationship is not.

    We are not arguing incest marriage, we are arguing gay marriage. Being gay is legal, Being gay and raising children is legal, gay marriage should then be legal.

    When incest is made legal, than we can talk about incest marriages.

    Well that WOULD make for a much more streamlined system of laws regulating behavior.

    So you don't think incest marriages could possibly be considered a civil right ?

    But why is incest illegal? Should gay marriage also have anti-incest rules?

    Aw nicely done, a conservative attempts to show they do appreciate nuance in political thought -- Lots of actions "could possibly be considered a civil right", as liberals and progressives often note, there is often a wide range of possible answers to complex questions, a wide range that does not indicate probability. Such "possibilities do not however, warrant a comparison of same-sex marriage with incestuous marriage or with any of the other totally absurd, attempted comparisons being spewed forth by the rightie media.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    Would it be harmful to a child if daddy had two wives? A wife and a husband? Three husbands? Perhaps a goat?

    Liberals live in a strange reality.

    But in some places gay marriage IS not allowed and that's being challenged ... get the point now?

    Please.

    Democrats have made "poor starving children" the centerpiece of just about every campaign they've run for the past 50 years.

    Just keeping it real...
