Gay ‘marriage’ will never, ever, ever lead to polygamy (unless it does)
LifeSiteNews ^ | 6Mar13 | Michael Cook

Posted on 03/07/2013 5:09:54 PM PST by ReformationFan

Australian activists for same-sex marriage have always insisted, that it will not lead to polygamy or polyamory. Never, ever, ever. Gay marriage is just like traditional marriage, except for the sex of the spouse. Activist Rodney Croome wrote last year that “studies show most LGBTI people want to be part of a two-person marriage, while partners in polyamorist relationships (most of which begin as heterosexual unions) say they don’t want their relationships recognised as marriages.” Former Greens leader Bob Brown described a push for polyamory as “nonsense”.

This is a crucial point for supporters. If they were to concede that same-sex marriage would ultimately lead to polygamy and more imaginative forms of marriage, they would prove that there is a slippery slope. So they are forced into vehement denials.

How odd, then, that a Polyamory Action Lobby (PAL) has been founded in Australia “to combat the image of poly people as relationship bogeymen”.

PAL is testing the waters by spruiking a public petition on Change.org, an internet site for activists. “For too long has Australia denied people the right to marry the ones they care about. We find this abhorrent. We believe that everyone should be allowed to marry their partners, and that the law should never be a barrier to love. And that's why we demand nothing less than the full recognition of polyamorous families.”

Indeed. I dislike any “marriage” that doesn’t Christ’s teachings about what actually constitutes it in Matthew 19:4-6. However, the polygamists can make a better argument for their cause than the homosexualists can for theirs.

Yeah, they said it would never lead to acceptance of bestiality. Now, Yale teaches it as normal. These people are evil, plain and simple. They must be stopped.

so they want to re define marriage but only how thye want marriage whilst taking so called rights away from other groups.

You can;t even make this up.

Here is a thought, keep marriage as one man and one woman like it has for hundreds of years, .
Keep it like thagt because chuildren are better off wiht a mother and a father.
Keep it like that because family is the back bone of this country and I’;m sure Australia.

I would not trust a word from these turd pokers, .
they said their private business but then have parades and shirts and flags.
They said they want civil unions and not marriage and thye got that and right as they got civil unions which in itself was discrimination to norma couples not married they said they wanted marriage.
They now want and get special laws, bully, boycott and attack people who oppose their twisted agenda
They have sex in public, bathroms, dog parks truck stops the sick lot.
They now say they should have access to kids and play family
They then want themselves in the military and yet don;t ask gave them privacy
They now want people charged for speaking up in England.

They should be told to seek mental help and quick

This is silly, Polygamy is a given once marriage is destroyed.

Name one good reason why it won’t lead to polygamy. Every single argument for homosexual marriage can be used to justify polygamy. On top of that, there is historical precedent for polygamy, not for homosexual marriage.

If you would have told anyone in 1980 that something called ‘gay marriage’ would actually be recognized by western states before polygamy they would have thought you were nutso. I mean, at least polygamy was an actual thing, some places had or still have it in the world. Now statists and homosexualists call anyone nuts who think that polygamy might be coming after something impossible like ‘gay marriage’ has been put over in many places.

Or to put it in a G-rated manner, the simple fact remains in polygamy there’s at least a chance a child will be created and that child will have the benefit of his or her biological parents(a father and a mother. Imagine that!) being married to each another in the eyes of the law. No matter how they try, two members of the same sex cannot produce human life without going outside of their relationship and if they do so, they’re robbing that child of either his or her father or mother.

The same arguments can be used for pretty much any union that people may fancy.

They want to punish people, students in schools included, for failing to affirm their “identity”. If you refuse to call a tranny boy “she” “her” and call him a “He” and “His” instead, they will want you punished for a hate crime.

That's why marriage needs to be defined as one man one woman. If marriage is simply 2 people who love each other and nothing else, anything goes.

That’s the true aim. The homosexualists, polyamorists, etc. are what the Communists call “useful idiots”. The ultimate goal is to legally abolish the special status of the natural family and replace it with the state.

I wonder if those folks consider it a “hate crime” if you call one of them “it”?

Indeed. The “you should be allowed to marry who you love” argument is what is being pushed. I saw an advert on TV this evening that used that argument (”My brother should be allowed to marry the person he loves”). Why not allow people to marry their favourite cartoon character? How can you “judge their love?”

Curiously, when advocates of gay marriage are asked if their policy also would allow polygamy or polyandry, they recoil in horror and insist that it does not. However, logic demands that it does. I would ask how same-sex parents are going to react in the future when, for example, Utah public schools officials require that teachers instruct the children that LDS-related polygamy is just as “normal” as same-sex “marriage”. The fact that this will be an issue will show yet again that gay “marriage” is not about marriage at all it is about forcing the rest of us to approve of repugnant sexual immorality, something that LDS polygamists never demanded.

Polygamy was a history in culture and in the United States -- a state had to outlaw it just to join the Union.

Gay marriage does not have the same pedigree, and yet it is legal in several states.

Look, this isn’t all that difficult. On the one hand, God said, “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”

On the other hand, those who are inclined to a) homosexuality, b) lesbianism, c) polygamy (whether polygyny or polyandry), d) pedophilia/pederasty, e) bestiality, f) sadism, g) masochism or, yes, even h) serial murder (which is always psycho-sexual) will always attempt to subvert and overturn God’s judgment. We just happen to live in an age when the representatives of all of them have found each other and are willing to band together as co-belligerents, having decided that they have more interest in furthering their own predilections than shame in associating with others whose inclinations they know are wrong (having already long ago justified their own inclinations).

Historically speaking, this has happened before. It will end badly.

exactly, the homosexuals are nothing but hypocrites who want their own way and to hell with everyone else.

I’ve used that argument which you sad about them not being able to reproduce and every time it works, it;s all about their getting off in their kind of sex.

They pretend to be a family and play family and yet they care nothing about that poor boy or girl who is now having to watch two of the same sex sleep in the same bed, to touch each other, to kiss each other, to be dragged to those freak parades, even Duval Patrick the Gov of socialist MA took his teen daughter to these freak parades and she thought back then she was a homosexual.

It really is a sick and twisted agenda

all this crap of a boy dressing as a girl in a high school and then saying he should use the girl bathroom and some teachers are so sick and mentally twisted think it;s OK as do the mother or father.

The sad part is that I guarantee that there will be a couple of boys and a group of girls who will become friends with this boy who has mental problems because they think it;s cools and because they watch crap like MTV and because of no good parenting.

Thanks for that post, it's brilliant.

Here I was thinking that the only reason for 0's support of SSM was his sexual orientation.

It wasn't a teacher, it was the state. It is a state law that a boy who calls himself a tranny, and they do not have to dress like a girl or be gay to declare themselves a tranny and mom and dad will never be told.

It's the girls who no longer have the right to say YUCK "I won't" (poop and shower with boys) who will be called up on hate crimes.

  However, the polygamists can make a better argument for their cause...

  Yes - that makes sense to me because the kids would still have a mother and father present... just with an extra mother or 2. Ultimately, the current movement leads to a world where the word "marriage" can mean whatever you want it to mean and when that happens, the word "marriage" will have no meaning at all. There are other movements with similar results. "Economic Justice" results in widespread misery.

that is plain sick and to think these kind of people are being told by the radical left that it;s OK and that they;re normal.

Like what has been said on here because we have folks on this site which are not as ignorant as the idiots which keep saying they have no problem with homosexual marriage because gthey have a friend who is queer and they are nice.

Every argument what homosexuals use to justify their kind of sham marriage can be used for any kind of marriage.

Once marraige has been changed to suit one group then it can be changed for any kind of marriage

Muslims also have polygamy but it’s is not as widespread as most people think. I knew one Arab Air Force guy who had two wives and one American muslim who had two or three wives. The rest of the men I knew only had one. Most women on that side of the world don’t play that multiple wives crap.

The muslim women claim that it is allowed if one woman is barren then the husband is allowed to get another wife so he can have children. They don’t divorce because the husbands have to give up big cash to the relatives to get married in the first place.
