Does he never learn?

From the Sun-Times:
Keyes says incest awaits kids of gays October 17, 2004 BY CHERYL V. JACKSON Staff Reporter Advertisement 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."
This is particularly ridiculous coming from an abortion opponent when adoption has been pushed heavily by anti-abortion groups as part of the solution to abortion. If you want to make a ridiculous statement, Keyes might be well-served not to make one that can be used against his other pet issue.
