Writer Erin O'Brien comments on all things human.
Regarding traditional marriage; many states don't allow 1st cousin marriage. Some states allow it if the female is old enough not to be able to reproduce. Will same sex first cousins now be able to marry in Kentucky or Arkansas?I think we should embrace same species marriage and get this issue out of the news for a while.

Thanks, MA. They're going to have to add a couple mor columns to that chart. I think.
It's ironic that about 60% of the people, who would have had to use that waiting room, support traditional marriage and oppose same sex marriage. By the way; it's being called marriage equality. Any man who has been in a traditional marriage for a few years or more, knows that there's no such thing as equality in a marriage.

I want everyone to get married, then they can enjoy divorce and lawyers.James Old Guy
A man's not complete until he's married. Then he's finished.Why do men die before their wives? Because they want to.What's the definition of a husband? You get married, you enjoy the honeymoon, and then you wait to die.Yes, I realize I'm going to hell for that bit.AlTRAG
"Take my wife... please." Henny Youngman"We sleep in separate rooms, we have dinner apart, we take separate vacations – we’re doing everything we can to keep our marriage together.My wife wants sex in the back of the car and she wants me to drive. My wife was afraid of the dark… then she saw me naked and now she’s afraid of the light. My wife’s jealousy is getting ridiculous. The other day she looked at my calendar and wanted to know who May was." Rodney Dangerfield
Erin, I stopped getting follow-up comments on your Facebook post today. 85 comments? That one fellow spawned a frenzy. I've never seen the likes of it even on one of your crazy long blog threads. He really dug his heels in.
Ms. A: That cousin-marriage chart thingie sort of freaked me out.Twinks: There's plenty to love about Estergall. His FB profile predictably indicates he's one of your God Squad. What I like is how he also supports killing at will. Here's a quote regarding the unbelievable killing of Daniel Adkins, which Estergall thought was completely justified. The fact that Adkins was mentally retarded actually works in the victims favor.... If Adkins was acting "crazy and irrational," as some mentally impaired people do, then how could the other guy not believe Adkins wasn't going to harm him?So in addition to being a raging homophobe, Estergall pretty much supports shooting anyone who jus' plain don' look right. Cut and paste to read the whole crazy rant:https://www.facebook.com/eobnow/posts/291038217648031
Just to illustrate I'm not all bile in these matters...My favorite marriage reflection comes from the late Lewis Grizzard, Jr. To wit:"The next time I think about getting married I'm going to find a woman I don't like and buy her a house."RJ (2 time real estate gifter)
I need someone to explain to me why all the holy rollers have a cow over gay marriage but don't care about divorce. Where's the outrage?Even the majority of Catholics seem to roll their eyes, whistle and grind a toe into the ground.
Just think, RJ, how much more it would hurt, if you had to buy a house for another guy.
@Erin. I'll ask Father Larry, when I see him at Starbucks, and report back to you.
Why a man would want to marry is a mystery. Why he'd want to marry TWO women is a bigamistery.MR
If all men were brothers, would you let your sister marry one?MR
Good point. We sisters are looking better all the time.
"I need someone to explain to me why all the holy rollers have a cow over gay marriage but don't care about divorce. Where's the outrage?'Erin, the holy rollers once were, and, most likely, still are, bothered by the prevalence of divorce. And their views prevailed for quite a long time. Divorce was a difficult thing to get in most places until the 1970s. On top of that, there was general social taboo against it as well. Views gradually shifted, just as they did with gay marriage, and being gay in general (though such bigotry has hardly disappeared. Gay kids are still getting bullied and still committing suicide because of it), but with no help from the holy rollers. They complained long and loud about that shift in views on divorce. That they're no longer complaining hardly means they're happy about the situation. They've just now got bigger fish to fry. And they may someday return to complaining about divorce. Look at the recent contraceptives debate. You suddenly started hearing 50 year-old arguments that conceptives encourage women to have, God forbid, sex for fun. And that argument was even included in the anti-contraceptive leglislation that was recently shot down in Congress. Never assume the holy rollers have changed their minds simply because they've become less vocal. They know they can't fight all their battles at once.As for Rush, he is clearly a hypocrite on the subject of marriage, but I question whether he's a true holy roller. I think the only god he worships is the Almighty Dollar.
Well said, Kirk.
