Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) went on the attack against same sex marriage Thursday at the Eagle Forum Collegians 2011 Summit in Washington, D.C.

"Well, think about it," she began. "That starts you down the road to opening up licensure to basically meaning that a license would mean nothing if you let everybody with that standard."

"For instance, you know, if you just care about somebody and have a committed relationship, why not allow one man and two women or three women to marry?" Hartzler asked. "Why not allow group marriage? There are people out there who want that."

"Why not allow an uncle to marry his niece? Why not allow a 50-year-old man to marry a 12-year-old girl if they love each other and they are committed?" she continued. "So, pretty soon if you don't set parameters, you don't have any parameters at all."

"It's their right to marry whoever they want but we're saying marriage is between a man and a woman... It's not a right in the Constitution as far as that goes either. It's not a right of anybody, of a three-year-old being able to drive a car."

Right Wing Watch noted that Hartzler has built her political career on opposing gay rights.
