Two Down, One To Go

I wrote recently, in response to the news that polygamists in Utah - now that marriage is considered by most to be whatever anyone wants it to be - had knocked down one of the three pillars of liberal argument pertaining to gay marriage.  That argument?

Marriage between two consenting adults is none of our business.




Polygamists are outraged by the first rule.  Naturally.

Child molesters by the third.  Naturally:

'Pedophilia Is a Sexual Orientation'

That's right.  Pedophiles consider themselves to be wrongly and unjustly treated by society.

That leaves the consenting part.

Be prepared for rapists and would-be rapists - to be outraged by the draconian rules established by an inhibited, patriarchal civilization that unfairly discriminates against them.  Their sexual preferences should be protected and promoted by the government too.  Shouldn't they?

Shouldn't they?

Expect this to be addressed by the next gathering of the Democratic National Committee.  Laws against rape cannot stand.

Marriage is whatever one person wants it to be.  Pandora's Box has been opened.

Food for thought. A quote from a prominent Democrat, Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.): "Let’s talk about the Constitution on same-sex marriage. It says full equality under the law. That means the right to marry whoever you love."

Doesn't "whoever" discriminate against those who choose to "love" goats?

A new frontier for the "open-marriage" crowd opens.
