Slippery Slope: Federal Judge Strikes Down Part Of Utah’s Polygamy Ban

From Matt Barber at

Marriage defenders have long warned that deconstructing the institution of legitimate man-woman marriage by presuming to make so-called “gay marriage” the law of the land, would ultimately remove all ethical and legal justification for barring similar such perverse “marriage” amalgamations  (i.e., multi-party  or incestuous nuptials).

This is one of those times when we hate to be proven right. The Huffington Post reports that polygamists are the next special interest group about to be handed so-called “marriage equality” via judicial fiat:

A federal judge in Utah has issued a final ruling that strikes down parts of the state’s anti-polygamy law, in a lawsuit filed by a family that appears on the TV show “Sister Wives.”

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups ruled in favor of the stars of the TLC reality show in December, but the decision wasn’t finalized due to unresolved, procedural issues.

The ruling is a landmark decision and a victory for the Brown family.

Kody Brown and his four wives sued Utah in 2011 after a county prosecutor threatened to charge them under the state’s bigamy law.

Waddoups ruled that a provision in the law forbidding cohabitation violates the Browns’ freedom of religion.

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said in February that he intends to appeal.

Make no mistake, unless this euphemistic “marriage equality” bomb is ultimately defused, the cornerstone institutions of natural marriage and the natural family will someday be unrecognizable. A society that rejects the sanctity of marriage and family is a society not long for the world.
