Jeremy Irons Is Worried Gay Marriage Will Lead To Fathers Marrying Their Sons

“I worry that it means somehow we debase, or we change, what marriage is. I just worry about that.” Oh Jeremy, don’t worry! posted on

1. In an interview with HuffPost Live, Oscar-nominated actor Jeremy Irons expressed some concerns about same-sex marriage.

While Irons expressed he “doesn’t have a strong feeling either way”, he did suggest same-sex marriage could be manipulated to allow fathers to pass on their estates to their sons without being taxed.

2. Because, after all…

4. Josh Zepps kindly reminded him, “There are laws against incest.”

“It’s not incest between men”, because “incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don’t breed,” replied Irons.

7. He went on to wish anybody in a relationship the best of luck.

8. Who ever you happen to be living with…

9. Some responses to his worries:

I hate when people say they don't have strong feelings about something then proceed to spew offensive and ignorant ones #jeremyirons" target="_blank">http://twitter.com/search?q=%23jeremyirons">#jeremyirons

Is Jeremy Irons as stupid as he appears or is he just trying to highlight a weird loophole in incest laws?

“To avoid estate taxes a father could use gay marriage & marry their son” Jeremy Irons just made me sick to my stomach. Disgusting logic.

13. Jeremy, don’t worry so much.
