Is incest next?

A cautionary note: A hundred or even 50 years ago, marriage between same sex couples was inconceivable. Now it is being debated by the Supreme Court. The debate does not concern itself with morality or religion. The debate is about civil rights. Is it the right of two people of the same sex to be legally married?

At the present time, marriage between persons of the same family (a father and daughter, a mother and a daughter, etc.) is not only inconceivable, it is repugnant. But what does the Supreme Court do in 25 or 50 years when it reviews a case under the guise of civil rights, demanding the right of a brother and sister to legally marry?
