The Slippery Slope Argument, Gay Marriage, and Horses

We know that one of the arguments some (the lunatic fringe of the lunatic fringe) conservatives say we must oppose gay marriage because all hell would break loose. One we let two men kiss and get married or two women kiss and get married men and women in general would think they could do anything. The social constraints chains which bar men from sodomizing another person's horse, ferret, cat, dog, or even box turtle would be lifted.

This, we are told, is why South Carolina voters passed an amendment to their constitution explicitly barring the state, its agencies, and its political subdivisions from recognizing any marriage, civil union, or domestic partnership created by the union of two or more parties of the same-sex.

Governors might have to run to foreign countries like Argentina if they wanted to cheat on their wives or husbands and then return so they could at least make the attempt to fall back in love with their spouses but South Carolina's moral fabric would be preserved and its reputation wouldn't be soiled by some perverted freak f------ another person's horse twice.

Now could you imagine the horror that would have been unleashed if South Carolina's voters rejected the marriage amendment? The horror! The horror! Perverted freaks might dump their horse for another or who knows, maybe conduct an affair with one behind the others' back. or what if they get bored getting freaky with one box turtle and have to buy another.

Thank God South Carlina's voters prudently denied themselves the right to marry a human being of the same sex. If that was allowed all hell would break loose.
