Why do you think there's more states that allow first-cousin marriage than gay marriage?

  • Because man and women is the norm, but is this anyway to protect the sanctity of marriage??Isn't this a form of incest? very stupid legislature!

  • I agree with Older... add though, that If people would consider what this actually does to the gene pool, and take into account that gays/lesbians are not adding to the gene pool without the assistance of an outside, NON-related source they are doing no damage at all.

    And this proves the theory of how the term "Local" became a derogatory statement/label. I know it must sound horrible, but I can tell the "Locals" by sight when I go out somewhere. The ones that were born and bred here for a couple of generations... They all have the "mongoloid" appearance to some degree. (BTW, I live in SC and am NOT local- I'm a "GD Yankee")

    What an incredibly bigoted statement.  Judgmental and rude, as well.

  • I think that is disgusting. I am pro gay marriage, and I am not gay. This is suppose to be the land of the free and you cant marry someone of the same sex? Marriage is suppose to be about love not I'm a woman and your a man. Marriage between cousins should be forbiden. Its disgusting, wrong, and incest. I could only think of the poor children!

  • Obby....did you HAPPEN to NOTICE that southern states weren't the ONLY ones on there? As a matter of fact there were only 7 southern states and 17 OTHER ones....maybe there is REASON they call you a GD Yankee......or should they just call you GD ignorant?

  • As far as the map goes I find that a little odd tho I have to say. When I lived in Cali I took a class in HS that taught that is was illegal for first cousins to marry. I remember thinking WHY would anyone WANT to marry their first cousin! LOL EEWWW. I would like to make one ADDITIONAL point on the gay marriage thing and the south.......has a southern state out it to a vote yet? I don think they have. PRETTY sure its Cali and northern states and THOSE "enlightened" people are the ones that voted it down. Try and keep that in mind......

  • I'd rather legalize gay marriages and keep human DNA out of the shallow end of the gene pool.
