Corbett compares same-sex marriage to incest.Oppshttp://nicedoggie.net/?p=10626The state’s (New York’s) highest court has toppled a cultural taboo — legalizing a degree of incest, at least between an uncle and niece — in a unanimous ruling.Of course progressives will say it is different because polygamy is conduct and gay marriage is not conduct but a right.http://www.nationalreview.com/bench-memos/343980/good-question-justice-sotomayor-and-not-much-answer-ed-whelanWell, you’ve said — you’ve said in the cases decided by this Court that the polygamy issue, multiple marriages raises questions about exploitation, abuse, patriarchy, issues with respect to taxes, inheritance, child custody, it is an entirely different thing. And if you — if a State prohibits polygamy, it’s prohibiting conduct. If it prohibits gay and lesbian citizens from getting married, it is prohibiting their exercise of a right based upon their status. It’s selecting them as a class, as you described in the Romer case and as you described in the Lawrence case and in other cases, you’re picking out a group of individuals to deny them the freedom that you’ve said is fundamental, important and vital in this society, and it has status and stature, as you pointed out in the VMI case.
Not my cup of tea, but so long as its two consenting adults, who cares?
