In the News In a rather unusual move, both Google and Apple have publicly backed the fight against "Proposition 8", both by words as well as by donation. Proposition 8 is an initiative measure in the state of California that would ban same-sex marriages in California by amending the Constitution of the state to include that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California". Both companies gave out their reasoning for supporting the fight against 'Prop 8'.

"What about daughters who have sex with their mothers? Shouldn't they be equal? What about siblings who sleep together? A man who is in love with a minor? The idea that *any* two people in love means the relationship should be treated as a good thing is just completely ridiculous.

Not any two people. Two (or more) consenting adults can do whatever they hell they want in the bedroom, I really don't care. It's none of my business.

So if you had a sister and a brother, both consenting adults, and if they came to you and told they were in love and wanted to be married and have kids via in vitro with an anonymous sperm donor, you'd be OK with that? Or what if it was your father and your adult sister? That's just sick. Being in love doesn't, by itself, make it right. So, assuming you don't support these two examples, how would you modify your claim about love between consenting adults being the only standard?

And equating homosexuality with paedophilia... I thought the world was past that nonsense by now? I guess I'm just a little too used to being Dutch, and I forgot how backwards most parts of the world still are.

I'll give you the same response as I gave StephenBeDoper:

Are you pretending that I equated homosexuality with incest, bestiality, pedophilia, etc.? That would be absurd. What I said is that society used the same reasons for not allowing all four of those things, and suddenly the left has eliminate those reasons in defense of homosexuality, so I asked what reasons we're to use to continue to ban the latter three things. It's a valid question. HappyGod attempted to answer it, instead of just making up something offensive about me. What answers would you come up with?
