Not in the U.S.A. – Yet

For those who don’t remember, a wave of state constitutional amendments swept across the United States about a year ago limiting the definition of marriage to include one man and one woman. This wave was the overwhelming response to judicial activists who mandated that their states legally recognize homosexual unions.

One of the arguments against legalizing homosexual “marriage” was that it would open the door to further weakening of the definition of marriage, eventually including polygamy, bestiality, and pedophilia. Opponents of the constitutional bans accused proponents of paranoia and outrageous claims designed to scare undecided voters.

Now the Netherlands has granted a civil union to a man and two women. Those who argue against the previously mentioned slippery slope may be interested to know that the Netherlands was the first country in the world to recognize same-sex partnerships, and is one of the most socially liberal countries in the world.

Does anyone still not see polygamy as the successor to homosexual unions in threatening the sanctity of marriage? Consider this:
During a question-and-answer session after a speech at Yale University, ACLU president Nadine Strossen stated that her organization has "defended the right of individuals to engage in polygamy," reported AgapePress, noting that the comments cited by the Yale Daily News received little attention.

The ACLU is not alone in championing polygamy. The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints embraces plural marriage, for example. There are also several others who would be happy to engage in a “man’s greatest fantasy” or other combinations of numbers and genders and have their trysts legally recognized. With agents actively promoting acceptance of such behavior and the idiotic fringes to which “diversity” and “multiculturalism” stretch, polygamy could all-too-easily worm its way into legalization, right through the cracks in the definition of marriage left by homosexual unions, were they not constitutionally banned.

So what about bestiality? I looked it up but I found no group claiming to support its legalization. What about pedophilia, one of the most horrific acts and greatest sins of them all? NAMBLA promotes it and its legalization. Is it really far-fetched to believe that these behaviors can ooze their way out of the gutters where they belong and into the realm of “acceptable” behavior? The same was thought of homosexuality only a few decades ago.

Those who decry the limitations on marriage as discriminatory and homophobic do not realize the evils to which they would open the door. And if you do realize the consequences of your goals and still pursue them, then all Christians and conservatives should oppose you with every fiber of our beings. This isn’t simply a matter of offending someone’s sense of right and wrong. No, this is about protecting our families and our communities against an ever-increasing subversion by a small, sick minority in what is nominally a democratic republic.
