From the Chicago Sun-Times:
U.S. Senate candidate Alan Keyes told a rally Saturday that incest was â€œinevitableâ€ for children raised by gay couples because the children might not know both biological parents.
â€œIf we do not know who the mother is, who the father is, without knowing all the brothers and sisters, incest becomes inevitable,â€ Keyes told the Marquette Park rally held to oppose same-sex marriages.
â€œWhether 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.â€
Across a road in the park, about 40 gay-rights proponents jeered. One said the frequently controversial Keyes, a Republican running against Democratic state Sen. Barack Obama, was trying to stir up voters.
Of course, candidate Keyes forgets that this would mean that children raised by heterosexual adoptive couples would also be at risk, so we should ban that as well.
USA Today highlighted the difference between the Obama and Keyes campaigns:
Barack Obama hobnobbed with comic Robin Williams and musician Stevie Wonder at the home of Playboy CEO Christie Hefner during a $2,500-a-plate fundraiser catered by Wolfgang Puck.
Alan Keyes crashed the New Trier Township Republican dinner after organizers refused to invite him to speak.
