Academy-Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons raised questions about same-sex marriage in an interview yesterday with HuffPostLive.

“Could a father not marry his son?” asked Irons.

“Well, there are laws against incest,” said the host.

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

“It seems to me that now they’re fighting for the name,” Irons said. “I worry that it means somehow we debase, or we change, what marriage is. I just worry about that.”
