News Homosexuality Doesn’t Lead to Polygamy After All.

Fundies often argue that it’s a slippery slope from gay rights (marriage, adoption) to polygamy and bestiality.
That doesn’t appear to be the case in the 10 Circuit Court of Appeals. Indeed, a few weeks ago I Slogged about a 10th Circuit decision that a-okayed the rights of gay parents who adopt.
Well, that same 10th circuit ruled today that polygamy is not legitimate.
Frankly, I’ve never understood the problem with legalizing polygamy. Especially for fundies.
If they’re so hell bent on religious freedom and keeping the secular state from picking on religion, shouldn’t they support Mormon rights?
As for us lefties: Don’t we think the 14th Amendment means any consenting adult should be able to marry any other consenting adult?
Either way, those activist judges shut down the polygamists.
