Focus on the Family Comes out in Favor of Incest

I suppose when you are truly homophobic, anything looks better than same sex domestic partnerships.

The Colorado Domestic Partnership Act would give gay couples the right to make medical decisions for an incapacitated partner, provide access to health-care and family-leave benefits and protect inheritance rights when a partner dies.

Tom Minnery, vice president of Focus on the Family, called the proposal discriminatory because it would not protect adult siblings who live together.

I think that relatives already have medical care rights. Inheritance rights are easy to resolve with something called a will. Those of us more literal, supposedly secular humanists have heard of it. But as arguments go this has to be one of the stranger ones.
