Here is Robert Klein Engler making an important point that every liberal and ignorant conservatives will deny is possible — that is, until later when they’ll have to rationalize their earlier position and obfuscate like crazy:
It used to be that a man and a woman got married and had children. They became parents, and the children called the man father and called the woman mother. Same-sex marriage will bring an end to all that.
The slippery slope conservatives warned about if same-sex marriage became nationwide will get more grease as time goes by. With more grease comes more confusion. Eventually, we will slide into a pool where words no longer mean what they used to mean. This will be a sign the end of all marriage is upon us.
The end of marriage is how the writers of the blog Agenda Europe see it. “[G]ay ‘marriage’ is neither about gays nor about equality. The real purpose is the deconstruction, and indeed the destruction, of marriage and family as basic social institutions. In other words, the aim is to destroy society as we know it.”
Consider the confusing news from North Dakota, Utah, Florida, and the Artificial Intelligence community.
“North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem filed a legal opinion … confirming that the state does not recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages, allowing a man married to another man to come to North Dakota and marry a woman without divorcing his husband.”
Adding to the confusion in North Dakota is a recent ruling in Utah about polygamy. “Fueling debates over marriage and religious freedom, a federal judge has declared that Utah laws criminalizing polygamy are unconstitutional, ruling on a case involving the Brown family from TLC’s reality series ‘Sister Wives.'”
William Baude suggests that polygamous marriage is next. “Social conservatives who argued for marriage solely between one man and one woman have long warned that allowing gay marriage would ultimately lead to allowing polygamy[.]”
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s majority opinion in Obergefell did not focus primarily on the issue of sexual orientation. Instead, its main focus was on a “fundamental right to marry…That right was about autonomy and fulfillment, about child rearing and the social order. By those lights, groups of adults who have profound polyamorous attachments and wish to build families and join the community have a strong claim to a right to marry.
Writing for Breitbart News, Ken Klukowski reflects upon the Utah court decision. “It’s nothing short of Orwellian to say that it’s morally right and praiseworthy to redefine marriage to include everything, from homosexuality, to … one man with four wives and seventeen children, to ten adults in joint bisexual relationships with unclear lines of custody[.] … It is instead a recipe for social chaos and the abolition of any firm definition of the word ‘family[.]'”
