I bet there will he a lawsuit within months, designed to push the issue all the way to SCOTUS. And if the court comes up with a reason to allow polygamy bans, they will be exposed as making the rules up along the way.

You are probably right....they just won’t hear the case....but in around 20 years they will relent.

“If you had to choose one as being more natural, polygamy is more natural than homosexual “marriage.””

That is exactly what I was thinking and goes back thousands of years. As far a queers getting married I can’t think of any culture in the past that supported it.

Funny how the homosexuals think that marriage between them is beautiful but any other form is bad.

Don’t they know it’s all about love? That’s all we’ve been hearing about this week.

So why not love between one man and many women? Or love between and adult and a child? Or love between brother and sister.

Why should they be denied the same love?

We will get polygamy and what happens when the first Muslim American citizen sues to marry the 8 year old girl. Voila! Adult-child marriage.

The term marriage has been obliterated as stated in the thread. We have Justice Kennedy to thank for this atrocity but also the other 4 brain dead nihilists who in their wisdom, have become fools.

I didn’t know the LGBT community could be queasy about anything other than something that was normal, moral and right.

Oh, there were a couple. One was known as Sodom and the other was called Gomorrah.

I always take the position that holiness is about activities and attitudes that contribute to a longer lifespan without taking advantage of another person. I find that it’s a position hard to argue against.

>>even the LGBT community is queasy about the whole idea<<

If I may, that’s the entire Point. Why are they queasy?

They must be either be Haters (their word) or Bigots (their word again) against other People who just want to Love who they Love, right? Isn’t that their argument, love conquers all?

Looks like the Gays that got the Supreme Court to invalidate the 10th Amendment think that everything is A-OK, so they can become what they accused us of being. Typical Alinsky Tactics...

Gays hate Incestuous and Polygamous Marriage because, well just because they think it’s icky. Well, some People think what they do is icky too. That makes those People Haters.
Makes perfect sense to me.

If polygamy is legalized, I could marry my grandchild when he or she turns 18. After a certain period of marriage, he or she can begin collecting on my social security as a spouse. My husband could do the same, and this could be continued into perpetuity. No more losing your benefits to the State if you die after a few years of SS eligibility. Instead, your family can share in your bounty. Another unintended consequence of the USSC’s social experiment.

“Robert Heinlein called group marriages an “S” group”

Yes, but his idea was considerably different from what’s happening now.

Child rearing as the benchmark reason for marriage is no longer considered an acceptable premise for upholding the, “tradition”.

In the world of single parent, “families” to which we have devolved, it is obvious that the Mom and Dad model which served so well for thousands of years is an anachronism.
The government will fund the child in the, “It takes a village” model through taxation and both marriage and parenting will be relegated to the past.

The slope is much more slippery than the USSC has considered.

The health argument is also compelling. The average male active homosexual has a 40 year lifespan- much shorter than the average smoker. And yet our public school children have been lectured about the dangers of smoking for years.

If the DoE got serious about health education, they would teach children gun safety, and at a certain age, how to defend themselves from violent attacks. They would also teach about the importance of male headed households, going to church, praying regularly and avoiding all sex until marriage. All these are correlated with longer life, and yet, they are anathema in our public schools. They don’t care about health. They care about pushing their own agenda.

It has been said lately that our SCOTUS is no longer a judicial arm, but has become a political arm. Well, our public schools have also become a political are. And watch for our private schools to be squeezed out of existence when they loose tax exempt status.

There already is one. Check out Brown v. Buhman, which is now in the 10th Circuit, and should reach the USSC in a year or two. This is the same Brown family that was the subject of the reality TV show “Sister Wives”. When that comes before the Court, the justices will be hard-pressed to uphold any laws against polygamy, because the same arguments used in the ssm case will be used in the pending case. They can't simply accept them in one case and deny them in another where the legal issues are the same. It is also inevitable that cases for incestuous marriages and pedophilic marriages will come before the Court, with similar outcomes.

And how many of your group wives are eligible for your social security survivor benefits?

The SCOTUS basically confirmed one thing and that is popular opinion will override the Constitution. As soon as opinion polls show acceptance for whatever perversion you can imagine the Constitution can be twisted just enough to find the right to do it
