People like myself warn that gay marriage has opened the doors to incest. Others scoff at this. "Incestuous conceptions can lead to genetic problems, though." True... But there is contraception, prenatal treats, and abortions... So why should that be feared?

Further, why not gay incest? What real, substantial difference is there between a union of two unrelated men and two related men, especially brothers? I for one see no reason to ban marriage between two brothers but not between two male friends. Can anyone answer that question for me?

Chili, marriage, and math

In Texas, chili does not have beans. Any (real) Texan will tell you that real chili doesn't have beans. Other states are just fine having beans in their chili.

Prior to last Friday, many people saw marriage like chili. In Massachusetts, for example, marriage was between any two adults, regardless of sex. In Texas, it was between two people of opposite sexes.

Today, some think the SCOTUS came in and declared that all chili must have beans, so to speak. The analogy, and the perception it represents, is wrong.

What the SCOTUS really tried to do was to say 1+1=2 or 1. Both answers are correct. States must adjust their math curricula and teachers must teach that 1+1=2 or 1.

In other words, marriage is a reality like the laws of math. The law is a law of natural philosophy attested to by countless peoples before is. The SCOTUS has disenfranchised the dead, and our activists have labeled them bigots.

We have now an oligarchy of the living where we freely curse and despise those who have us all that we have and love today. We have abandoned reason for emotion, and thought for sentiment.

Public discourse consists mostly in name calling and mockery and very little dialogue. We are now becoming second Socrateses as well as second Christs.
