I was doing some thinking on the slippery slope argument against gay marriage and here's what I came up with.

What makes polygamous marriage/bestiality/pedophilia wrong? Whatever it is,there's your answer why it won't be next. So right now they have to demonstrate that gay marriage is wrong.

The most likely response I that can foresee is "Gay marriage is wrong because they can't reproduce". Yet post-menopausal women and seniors can't reproduce. Does that mean we should ban them from marrying?

I was also thinking of doing something about interracial marriage, but I think this one is slightly stronger.

Thoughts?

No one has to prove it's wrong. There's a passage in the Bible about it so our predominantly Christian society is going to continue to dig in their heels on the issue.

Ask contradiction about the reproduction argument. He has fashioned a very well written yet completely bullsh1t response.

As a religions argument goes, it's a non-issue. You could have a religion called the Holy Flaming Ghosts and have heterosexual marriages condemned.

As a social and civic institution, politicians are not jumping at the chance to potentially reduce heterosexual marriages by granting equal status. I personally believe they worry not enough future taxpayers will be procreated. That was the whole reason for supporting heterosexual marriages, right? But then again they support abortion on demand, so I can't figure it out on a civic level.
