    if two consenting adults are incestous i'd say that there are already emotional issues, and that it would only exacerbate them.

    and if you want a better argument than that, just look at the british royal family

    I don't think you understand. I am just using it as an example. You cannot kill someone even with consent even if it is in private. It is still illegal.

    Yes it does. The guilt associated would be enough. The long term effects of mother son etc relationships that are sexual are well documented.

    Now you say the birth defects are not relevant because you can just kill the fetus?

    I am done with you.

    Well it sems the polls are much closer when the names are shown and there is usually a much bigger disparity from the left.....That was my only point........

    Rather hypocritical, wouldn't you say?

    A person can and will follow his own moral compass no matter where it comes from.
    I'm afraid the Law is blind when it comes to a persons Moral, or religious take on things. You rob a bank, you are chagred with bank robbery. they don't ask if you religion or moral ethics played a part in your decision to rob the bank. which is how it should be.

    If this were the case gay marraige would be legal and hate laws would not exist.

    How things should be and the reality are two different things.

    Then I can't possibly force my morals on to you.

    You don't have to be gay and married or believe it is right.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    But, it is relevant to the issue. Laws apply to everybody, not just you and your feelings, wishes and fears.

    You most certainly can via the law. Your argument is flawed.

    I don't believe it is right, and I will not support it. If you have a problem with that, use the system we have in place to change it.

    No it is not.

    If I live within a society, I have every right to change it or support it how I see fit.
