"We've got, for instance, two sisters, and these two sisters want to get married. They love each other. They are committed to each other. They want to spend the rest of their life together...

"[Their lawyers could argue that] 'we can just do away with that state law the same way we did away with sodomy laws.' Once you do away with that, you reveal what is really going on here."

-- Karen Muller, an attorney and Republican primary candidate in Wisconsin's 3rd congressional district, constructing slippery slopes about marriage equality at a "meet the candidate" forum in Tomah, Wisconsin.
