From gay rights to incest

Time: “It turns out the critics were right.”

Who could've seen that coming?

Oh, wait.

Jeff Jacoby:
An article last month by Time reporter Michael Lindenberger titled “Should Incest Be Legal?” highlights the case of Paul Lowe, an Ohio man convicted of incest for having sex with his 22-year-old stepdaughter. Lowe has appealed his conviction to the Supreme Court, making Lawrence the basis of his argument. In Lawrence, the court had ruled that people “are entitled to respect for their private lives” and that under the 14th Amendment, “the state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime.” If that was true for the adult homosexual behavior in Lawrence, why not for the adult incestuous behavior in the Ohio case?
They both love each other. They both consent. What's the difference? There's no argument for gay "marriage" that isn't an argument for polygamy and incest as well.
