ImpendingCynic: The only way it's possible for this to end up with a father marrying his own son is if it's currently possible for a father to marry his own daughter. Is that possible? Then you have bigger problems.I never understood the movement to ban gay marriage "because it will lead to polygamy, incest, bestiality" blah blah. Write the law limiting marriage to two humans of consensual age, and optionally no blood relation within n-degrees.Done. Was that so difficult?
Aarontology: Check it out. They have morons across the pond too!
Gergesa: Does anyone recall the Stephen Colbert mocking of Jeremy Irons about this? It was hysterical. Funniest take I have ever seen done by him.
CapeFearCadaver: jayhawk88: Yeah, like there's never been a gay or lesbian king or queen on the throne of England before *eyeroll*They hid that sh*t properly though... by "marrying" someone of the opposite sex... and having fun with their entourage. See? You can do what you want, as long as you "marry" the proper person as God prescribes.
phalamir: the former Cabinet minister even warned that same-sex marriage legislation could see a lesbian queen on the throneAs an American, I hate to have to a Brit, but: the Act of Settlement contains a relentlessly deterministic mechanism for deciding who exactly is the next person in line to sit on the throne - if the correct conditions are met, a 35 stone, tattooed, bull-dyke she-beast with enough piercings to make metal detectors go off for miles around, dragging a virtual BDSM harem along behind her in chains would be the next monarch under current British law, and no one could do a goddamn thing about it.
WoodenNickel: He won't HAVE to marry his son, but why shouldn't he be allowed to marry his son? Just because you think it's icky? Men are not allowed to marry their daughter or sister because their kids would have flippers. But there's not much danger of that in a homosexual marriage. So why shouldn't they be able to marry? What about old spinster sisters living together? If they could marry, it would help them out financially, with inheritance, with end-of-life decisions, etc.
