Just When I Thought Alan Keyes Couldn't Get Any Crazier...

From Salon.com:

"U.S. Senate candidate Alan Keyes told a rally Saturday that incest was 'inevitable' for children raised by gay couples because the children might not know both biological parents. 'If we do not know who the mother is, who the father is, without knowing all the brothers and sisters, incest becomes inevitable,' Keyes told the Marquette Park rally held to oppose same-sex marriages. 'Whether they mean it or not, that is what will happen. If you are masked from your knowing your biological parents, you are in danger of encountering brothers and sisters you have no knowledge of.'"

The argument is fascinating for how bizarrely nonsensical it is -- which, perhaps was the point. You have to wonder if Keyes says this stuff just to get attention. Using Keyesian logic, adopted children everywhere who don't know who their biological parents are will be doomed to lives of incest because they will inevitably meet up with their siblings and mate. Wow, who knew. "
