There's no way that two non-hermaphroditic members of the same sex could produce a child, so inbreeding arguments are done there.
Correct. I don't see a problem with two men or two women having sex with each other, even if they are related. Obviously I think they as well as everybody should be encouraged to educate themselves on protection against STIs and so on.
As for Biblical precedent, homosexual activity and incest are forbidden in the same chapter of the Bible (Leviticus 18--According to gay rights supporters this book was entirely made up, so you can go argue on either of the separate issues).
Yeah, "religious reasons" are a complete non-starter. If biblefuckers want to refrain from having sex with anyone, they're welcome to sit at home talking about how great god is or whatever it is they do.
I now officially open this controversial mess to the public!
If there's no chance of a baby being produced, I don't see the problem. The only real reason why incest might be illegal is because it can create a child with developmental problems, behavioural problems, etc. But if this isn't going to happen, let the two adults do whatever they want with each other behind closed doors.
