Now, given that a lot of the wingnuts charming people who feel that gays should not be allowed to marry are trotting out the whole "marriage is about having children and raising them in a family environment" argument, this really bothers me. Having first cousins have children is potentially a bad idea from a genetic viewpoint and is (in my opinion) a little creepy.

If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the pattern of their words. I think he would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God, and whose every deed is foul, foul, foul. -Isaac Asimov, scientist and writer (1920-1992)

What a wise man in so many ways. This applies to preachers, politicians and people in general. Honesty and righteousness is important ... or at least it should be.

As one of my favorite quotes says "Dear God, protect me from those to whom you speak directly." *sigh* I hate people who tar groups with a very broad brush (if you don't support the activities in Iraq, you are a traitor; if you don't support the heterosexcual marriage is the only kind idea, you are against morals and responsibilities).
