Back on topic. Back to this (I took out the word we didn't like in the statement):
Take a step back and consider this statement: "Two consenting adults love each other and want to get married." What person would want to prevent that?
For instance, I don't want siblings getting married. I don't care if they're 30 years old and sterilized. I don't want that to become commonplace. I don't care if they're consenting, love each other and want to get married.
I actually get this argument. My reaction to it is "Ew, that's gross, no" and then I understand that would be a reaction to many people who think about homosexual marriage.
I think the difference is that these siblings have another option, which is a member of the same sex of your sibling. This person isn't only attracted to their sibling. If you ban gay marriage, you're really banning the only option of marrying someone you have an attraction to.
