Another step on a slippery slope….1st cousins marriage.

When marriage in Massachusetts became something other than ‘one man and one woman’ it seems folks other than the GLBT community wanted in on the act.  Scientific American has released a story suggesting that 1st cousins should be able to marry regardless of the increased chance of birth defects among offspring.

This new insight is the result of a story produced on this website: http://biology.plosjournals.or…

which basically suggests that all that worry about incest was nothing more than silly old superstition.  And, the 31 states that currently outlaw the marriage between first cousins are behind the times and need to wake up.  Great!

Read the review of that research on Scientific American here: http://www.sciam.com/blog/60-s…

So is this another step on a very slippery slope?  Wasn’t it logical to assume that once two men or two women could marry that the next folks in line would be first cousins, and then brother and sister?  How about humans and animals?

Once that Pandora’s Box is opened it can never be closed.  “So who is it gonna hurt if two men get married” or “The world didn’t end” was the retort from the GLBT community when gay marriage was made law.  Soon enough we will be told that the world won’t end when cousins, and brother and sister want to enter into holy matrimony.
