I stumbled today across this piece in Newsweek about the rise of movement to legalize polygamy in the US. Of course, it’s very American that every group of likely-minded Americans gets immediately organized, hires lobbyists and has a web site, magazine and weekly meetings throughout the country. What is new is that now all kind of twisted and hurt minds organize to advocate their afflictions as lifestyle choices under the mighty banner of “civil rights”. The article points out that making gay “marriage” legal would open the door to make polygamy legal – and this is indeed only logical. I’ve been long telling everybody that gay activists discriminate against polygamists because if we scrap the old definition of marriage as a union of one man and one woman then why limit it to just two humans? In fact, why limit it only to humans? So, the next logical step would be for zoophiles to organize and fight for their civil rights. To paraphrase the Newsweek article – if Heather can have two mommies or two mommies and a daddy why not two daddies and their beloved goat?
