Same-sex marriage and the "slippery slope."
"It's a slippery slope," the wingnuts screech. "First, you let gays marry. Then it'll be polygamy. Then adults will be marrying children, and men will be marrying sheep. And box turtles. Where will it end!?!?", they howl tearfully.
Yes, let's talk about that slippery slope, shall we? Where said wingnuts will first refuse to perform same-sex marriages. Then, perhaps, given time to reflect, they will decide it offends their religious sensibilities to perform inter-racial marriages. And maybe it will outrage their religious convictions when one of the couple is divorced. Or when one atheist wants to marry another atheist. Or when a human female wants to marry Ezra Levant.
OK, maybe I pushed that analogy a bit far, but you see where I'm going with this.
