Mark Steyn: It's Closer Than They Think (If polygamy comes, is bestiality far behind?)
The Western Standard ^ | September 13, 2004 | Mark Steyn

The better advocates of gay marriage are an ingenious crowd, full of artful arguments to support their claim. Initially, most of us on the other side found it hard to believe a countervailing argument was necessary, and by the time it became clear that neither "Oh, come off it, you can't be serious" nor "Well, I dunno, it just don't sound right" were going to suffice, the gays were already on their way to victory in the only arenas that matter — the media and the courts.

But the activists' intellectual rigour only goes so far. If you suggest, as some defendants of "traditional marriage" do, that gay marriage is the slippery slope to polygamy and bestiality, the activists roll their eyes and go into "Oh, come off it, you can't be serious" mode. Like the chichi gay couple from New York who've built their dream home in rural Vermont, they don't want any other incomers muscling in. Gay marriage, they assure us, is the merest amendment to traditional marriage, and once we've done that we'll pull up the drawbridge.

Sorry, but it's not going to work like that. If you can get 'em past the don't-be-so-ridiculous stage, the gays point out that there are no constituencies clamouring for polygamy and bestiality. That's true in the latter case. There aren't many "zoo couples" (as they're known) demanding their rights. Offhand, I can think only of Phillip Buble of Maine, who petitioned the Piscataquis County Superior Court a couple of years back to allow his spouse to attend a hearing with him. ("I've been informed your personal permission is needed given that my wife is not human, being a dog of about 36 lbs. weight and very well behaved."…

Sodom and Ghamhora were not destroyed because of sin, but rather because people openly sinned and hid not there shame, they MOCKED GOD, much like the people of these United States openly mock God with divorce, blaspemies, abortion, homosexuality.

I do not recall one person in the Bible that was ever blessed with divorce, blaspemies, abortion, homosexuality by God.

However King David and Samuel were blessed by God with wives.

God Himself took two wives. Ezekiel 23:37. These two sisters (Judah and Samaria) committed adultery against God himself. Adultery being sex with someone other than your husband. So God obviously had two wives here.

You would make God a liar and an adulterer. You would murmur against God's annointed : Moses, Abraham, Jacob, Joshua, King David, Solomon , Samuel etc.

"is bestiality far behind?"

No matter the temptation, there are some questions that should never be answered!
