Finally. A straight answer from an honest liberal, Miss Gwen. I am relieved to the point of giddiness. All I ever asked was that a liberal hang with me long enough to get to the bottom of at least one liberal belief, so that I could make logical sense of it.
I am dead serious when I say that I am grateful for Gwen. She has integrity of belief. I vehemently disagree with her beliefs, but at least they are consistent!
Gwen supports “gay marriage,” so I asked her if she would also condone two brothers (or siblings) getting married, and if not, why not? It didn’t seem logical to me that one could support the former but reject the latter.
Ultimately, after several attempts, here was Gwen’s answer:
[I]n a futile attempt to "answer your question", do I condone brother/sister marriages?: sure. If two siblings really, really want to get married and enjoy a happy relationship-then go right ahead.
I honestly expected a different answer. I assumed that Gwen would be against incestuous marriages, even between consenting adult siblings. But I give her full credit for being consistent in her views, for her answer is exactly what should logically follow from her liberal positions on sex and marriage.
I've been so frustrated because I couldn’t find a liberal who could answer my questions logically. Well, Gwen’s answer makes sense. It is logical. I believe it to be wrong and immoral, but at least I understand it!
So, thank you, thank you, thank you, Gwen. You are indeed a consistent thinker and a person of integrity, even though I could not disagree with your belief system more.
