    What if the old widows were cousins...or sisters?

    Precedent only applies when the situations are almost identical and would still need to go through a court to decide, especially if there are any differences (such as blood ties, number of contracts, etc.) that would change the reasons that one could be denied the right to marriage. If precedent were an issue, then it would have been set in stone with Loving v. VA.
    They don't have to be identical, or near identical. Just similar.

    That doesn't matter. Homosexuals are asking for a right that no-one else has, because they are homosexuals.

    I think the slippery slope you've just pointed out ISN'T fallacious. Sorry if I didn't make that clear.

    My post was in response to lpast, who I believe is referring to sexual deviance such as bestiality, pedophilia, etc. which are different situations and IMO those examples are fallacious.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Or maybe I'm missing something here.

    Also, last I checked you can't decide and formulate laws based on what people think societal norms are.
    Your correct thats one of the reasons im against SSM

    Thanks for clearing that up, you just misspoke.

    So you actually do NOT believe they should be treated with the same dignity and respect as any other person.

    At least your honest.
    Of course I do....no other group is allowed to marry someone of the same gender. Equality is a two way street.

    What other groups, as long as its consenting human sound mind adults I'm probably fine with any of those groups and if the group isn't that I have no clue how this opens the door to them.

    We aren't letting horses, dogs and cows marry or vote yet? That's what people said when we let interracial marriage happen and granted minority, and womens rights.

    If we let women vote, we might as well let my dog vote!
    If blacks and whites marry, I should be able to marry my horse!

    Sorry those were silly and irrelevant years ago and they are the same today they hold no logical rational realistic merit.

    I already showed some of the possible groups, now, when you're done with your rant...go back and read.
