What are you talking about? Is there a new celebrity sex tape on the internets?

If both people here are 18 or older, who cares? Sheesh!

Tho maybe a "Romeo and Juliet" law needs to be used for consensual sex between a guy and a girl if 1 is 14 or older and the other is 5 years or less older, like 19 here. Incest IF "legal" should an exception, the younger party would need to be 18 IMHO.

OTOH Sex with animals: hell NO!

People don't understand what the slippery slope fallacy is. It's ONLY a fallacy when one uses it to reach an illogical conclusion, such as legalizing gay marriage will lead to more car accidents. The slippery slope argument is NOT a fallacy when it's used to reach a logical conclusion, if I smoke I will get lung cancer. That's a slippery slope ARGUMENT, not a slippery slope FALLACY. There's a difference depending on how it's used, therefore one cannot always automatically play the slippery slope fallacy card in an attempt to dismiss an argument.

It is a logical conclusion to argue that violating the definition of marriage will allow other groups to enter into "marriage" as well. Why do people support gay marriage? They believe it's a right (it's actually not, marriage beyond the definition is not a right). "Love is love" they say. Why do they support homosexuality? They say "it's normal because people are born that way" (despite being no proof for that), "animals do it, it's natural" (they are deliberately misinterpreting things). "Jesus never said anything about homosexuality, therefore it's not a sin" (Jesus never mentioned cannibalism either, that doesn't make it okay).

This same "logic" that is used to justify gay marriage and homosexuality can be used to justify incest and ploygamy. "Love is love, who are YOU to tell me I can't marry multiple partners!? It's my right!" "Polygamy and incest happen in animals, it's normal." "I was born that way! I just feel a natural desire to sleep with multiple people or my siblings, it's not a choice. Therefore my actions are justified." "Polygamy and incest have been recorded in ancient societies, it's totally fine." "Jesus never said anything about polygamy or incest, therefore it's not a sin." "If you disagree with my polygamist/incest lifestyle you're a bigot!"

Eventually if our culture wishes to go down this route, they will try to "normalize" it just like they are trying to "normalize" homosexuality. We are a society of people who base what is right and wrong solely on what they feel, and "normal" on what they want. Not what ACTUALLY IS right and wrong, and what actually is normal and abnormal according to God and Nature. There is a mentality that exists among many in our culture today who believe that morality is subjective. It's not.

What about the children? WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN?!?!?!

If you let gay couples exercise the same legal rights of marriage we let straight couples exercise, then that means being able to legally rape children is soon to follow. If we allow the degeneracy of gay marriage, then we logically have to allow all degeneracy.

You've slipped off the slope. The debate here is not about marriage, it's whether sexual relations between certain consenting adults should be illegal. Blocking gay marriage doesn't stop gay sex -and gay sex in the US is not prosecuted as a crime. The question here is whether incestuous behavior should be a punishable crime not whether siblings can be legally married.
