    No longer will you be arrested for practicing polygamy. Polygamy is clearly on the same path that homosexual relations once were. First they dropped the sodomy laws.

How many people realize in France even though it is frowned upon it has been legal for brothers and sisters of the same parent to marry since Napoleon. Lots of countries all over the world are dropping incest laws. Some countries allow marriage others do not allow marriage like Japan but do not find it a crime to engage in incest with consenting adults.
    You have obviously misunderstood the article. The portion you quoted refers to cohabitation, not legal marriage. From that very same article:

    Under Waddoups' ruling, bigamy remains illegal in Utah only in the literal sense, such as when someone fraudulently acquires more than one marriage license.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    A child of 13 can have an abortion in this country without the consent of a parent. How much of a stretch is it to see the laws of consent lowered in the case of marriage?

    Strictly speaking I suppose they could but the courts would never accept the words of a juvenile. Up to ths point anyway.

    No Dan I don't think I have misunderstood. What the judge did was ruled that you will no longer face jail time for practicing polygamy. What the judge did was put polygamy on the road to becoming legal just like the judge that legalized sodomy put in motion legalizing same sex marriages.

    I'm not a progressive, and I'm not sure how quoting the article in the OP is talking out of both sides of my mouth.

    Wrong again -- the judge ruled that you longer face jail time for cohabitating. You still can't get multiple marriage licenses or a marriage license for more than 2 people.

    Seeing as how it's legal to cohabit here in New York, and has been for some time, and yet we haven't gone anywhere near the subject of legalizing polygamy, I think you're very badly mistaken.

    You know how many states do not require parental consent for minors to have an abortion? Five.

    And you're totally changing the definition of informed consent to fit your slippery slope argument.

    Then we are in agreement. I have no problem with polygamy. It already exists. I should have stated my problem is with bigamy mostly on legal grounds. It would create a legal nightmare to have a 3 way divorce.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
