"Marriage Equality" Includes Polygamy
Each time I have raised the issue, we have been mocked and ridiculed by those seeking to redefine marriage. Other more influential voices have agreed, with the same response.
Now a major voice in the homosexual community is calling for legalized polygamy. Because when you redefine marriage, there is little basis to deny legalizing polygamy.
For thousands of years, all major civilizations have recognized marriage as:
1. The union of two consenting adults,
2. Of the opposite sex,
3. Who are not close blood relatives.
Same-sex "marriage" advocates say the second element can be jettisoned, but the first element cannot be.
Slate Magazine is now saying that "legalized polygamy in the United States is the constitutional, feminist and sex-positive choice."
Ken Klukowski is a lawyer and fellow with the American Civil Rights Union and on faculty at Liberty University School of Law.
He has written an excellent and well researched response to Slate's latest move to forward the real homosexual agenda. I strongly recommend you read this article. It will be helpful.
However, especially in light of recent victories, homosexual activists are going to vigorously work to advance the legalizing of polygamy and other forms of group marriage, etc.
Slate Magazine says, "All marriages deserve access to the support and resources needed to build happy, healthy lives, no matter how many partners are involved."
Senator Ed Murray, Rep. Jamie Pederson and others have promised the public that legalizing same-sex "marriage" would not, in any way, open the door for polygamy and other devaluations of marriage.
They were not telling the truth.
I have a growing sense, however, that with recent victories, those seeking to completely redefine marriage and the family are going to overreach, feeling the public will buy anything from them now.
I personally believe there is a point when the sensibilities of average people, combined with their common sense is going to create a significant push back on these kinds of issues.
It will be led by spiritual renewal, and most likely by young people.
This agenda to redefine marriage and family is not about "equality."
It is about affirmation of a behavior and lifestyle that is foreign to normal human behavior. And in defiance to biblical teaching.
And it's about rebellion toward the Creator.
Do not grow weary in well doing. Let not your heart be troubled.
The final chapter has yet to be played out.
Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
