Regarding whether this decision will open the door to the legality of bestiality, bigamy, prostitution, and incest...I suspect that at some point prostitution will be legalized. And at some point further in the future incest between adults will be legalized. I don't think that sex with children, nor bestiality, will be legalized because in neither case can the "consenting adult" argument be made. I suspect that someday polygamy might also be legalized. The reason will be that the second and third and however many more "spouses" will want the same property and legal rights regarding children as the first wife. Hoo boy. What an interesting age we live in. Keep an eye peeled for massive comets that will cause flooding and fire.

Can someone educate me as to why polygamy is not sanctioned by Christians or Jews? Lots of biblical heroes had multiple wives...
Sorry if I'm a bit off-topic...I've just never understood this...

Your #42 is accurate. I don't think that sex with children, nor bestiality, will be legalized because in neither case can the "consenting adult" argument be made
Everything else goes. Polygamy, Incest and prostitution should be legal.
There is a cultural aversion to Incest (except in Arkansas), founded (unlike the rest the Thumpers do) in scientific realty. At one time the gene pool was too small to allow sex between relatives as reproduction would produce genetic defects (See: Klinton family tree).
Now as gross as it is.... I'm not sure there's a scientific reason for this now, considering we're all mongrels now.
And once again my disclaimer: Anyone dumb enough to engage in Polygamy has formed their own punishment.

Don't forget that "rights of the child" crap that is floating around now, as well as the APA discussing removing pedophilia's description as a mental illness. All perversions will be mainstreamed, and acceptance will be forced. Remember that the sins of the New Age are not incest, murder, or molestation, they are intolerance and (tobacco)smoking.
