Polygamists wait to see the outcome of gay marriage shift

Polygamists. They are waiting in line for us to change the centuries old rules for marriage. And why not? What's so sacred about the number two in sex and definitions of marriage? Many people are serial spouses now. Why not 3 or 4 men if 2 men is OK? It will just add a few pounds to the Social Security Handbook which already has 2700+ rules. So if you think your church has settled this issue , and you're patting yourself on the back because your congregation is so open and welcoming, think again. "Beneath the sensationalism, there lies a real question. If Americans increasingly value their rights to privacy and liberty above historical social norms, then why should the state not legally approve other unconventional domestic set-ups?" And of course, evenutally using the word "unconventional" or even "couple" would than become hate speech. [quote from Washington Post article, Oct. 5, 2012]

And after that hurdle, you'll need to be looking at age, and biological relationships. With contraception, abortion, artificial insemination taking the place of marital sex and the biblical purpose of marriage (children, procreation), why not marry your sister or brother, or your mother-in-law?
