Those who demand gay marriage need to explain why marriage would not be appropriate for other sexual pattern adults who would wish to enter into them. If gay marriage is to be allowed why not polygamy, incest, and you know the rest. I feel this is a legitimate question, so don't jump me for it.
    I think that in order to exclude any group from access to the benefits of marriage you should have to show why that group should be excluded. The why should have to include evidence and/or sound reasoning for how extending access to marriage to group X will harm society.

    It is only to this extent that there is any slippery slope at all: That each group you bring up may attempt to gain marriage rights on the same terms, and society will have to think through those decisions with reason and not emotion or appeals to religion.

    And, it may be that society will be unable to find any rational basis for excluding those groups from marriage. If that is the case, they shouldn't be excluded. However, just because no rational basis can be found to deny gay people marriage doesn't mean there isn't a rational basis to deny siblings a marriage to one another.

    The only argument that has been put forward with any claim to rationality is: "Gay marriage will harm the institution of marriage". However, this argument has failed due to a lack of the ability for anyone to come up with a scenario as to how this will occur, or what the consequences will be to society or individuals within the society when the 'institution is harmed'. There has been plenty of time to develop the reasoning, and still no successful argument.

    Just appeals to emotion... and those will continue to work for a short while longer.

    Approximately 10% of males are left-handed. Only 1% of females are.

    I am too, theoretically anyhow, although over the years I've learned how to be largely ambidextrous.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's not really a good thing.
    It's pretty well accepted within the scientific community that lefties have shorter median lifespans, and higher rates of almost every disease. It's not well-understood why yet, but the theory is that being left handed is a mutation, a microscopic aberration of the brain or nervous system which has not yet been pinpointed, and that it generally signals that other aberrations and irregularities exist within the body, in other organs and systems.
    In other words, it's pathological. It's a syndrome. Left-handedness is a symptom of it.

    Not to- haha- scare you or anything.

    The seminal study of this phenomenon was published in 1991, by Drs. Stanley Coren and Diane Halpern, and it asserted that lefties die an average of nine years earlier than righties, mostly of cancer and cerebrovascular incidents such as strokes.
    It has since been challenged, to some extent; a lot of scientists think more study- with larger control groups- is needed.
    But it is fairly well-accepted.

    Sucks to be us, eh?
    I was always kind of proud of being a lefty, until I learned this bad news.

    Oh well, I'll quit derailing the thread.
