I can't believe this guy is serious, but it seems he is. Now, most people who use the slippery slope argument against gay marriage invoke the specter of legalized polygamy, or sometimes legal marriage between humans and the animals they molest. Les Kinsolving, however, is concerned about a far greater threat: the potential that marriage licenses might one day be issued to sadomasochist couples.

As you might have guessed, a marriage consisting of one man and one woman who happen to enjoy S&M is already perfectly legal. Eugene Volokh does a better job mocking Kinsolving than I could have. I did, however, send him an email pointing out all the gaping holes in his arguments.

And the woman who got fired by her boss (who included pro-Bush fliers with his workers' paychecks) for having a Kerry bumper sticker on her car has been given a job with the Kerry campaign!
