You Knew This Was Coming: “It’s Time To Legalize Polygamy”

Critics of the gay marriage ruling point to a “slippery slope” that opens the door to redefining anything for any reason, and question what’s next.  According to an article in Politico, it’s polygamy!


Welcome to the exciting new world of the slippery slope. With the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling this Friday legalizing same sex marriage in all 50 states, social liberalism has achieved one of its central goals. A right seemingly unthinkable two decades ago has now been broadly applied to a whole new class of citizens. Following on the rejection of interracial marriage bans in the 20th Century, the Supreme Court decision clearly shows that marriage should be a broadly applicable right—one that forces the government to recognize, as Friday’s decision said, a private couple’s “love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family.”

The question presents itself: Where does the next advance come? The answer is going to make nearly everyone uncomfortable: Now that we’ve defined that love and devotion and family isn’t driven by gender alone, why should it be limited to just two individuals? The most natural advance next for marriage lies in legalized polygamy—yet many of the same people who pressed for marriage equality for gay couples oppose it.

Considering that polygamy is usually associated with deep rooted religious beliefs, and the the liberals tweeting #LoveIsLove usually hate people who hold deep rooted religious beliefs, this will be interesting.  Grab the popcorn!
