The only difference between redefining marriage to include two people of the same sex and redefining it to include three or four people of any sex is a group of judges hasn’t ruled the latter a constitutional right yet. If courts rule that three people can appear on a birth certificate, why the “polygamy” hold up?
The polygamy lobby apparently isn’t powerful enough. Yet.
A judge in Montana just rejected would-be polygamist Nathan Collier’s lawsuit against the government for refusing to let him commit bigamy. He doesn’t have standing to bring the case, according to the court, because he hasn’t demonstrated that the law has harmed him or that he’s been threatened with prosecution.
Bigamy is against the law, but using the same arguments for homosexual marriage, how can such laws stand? An excerpt from the Christian News Network:
As the U.S. Supreme Court had just opined days earlier that homosexuals should be able to “marry,” he stated that if the court really believes in equality, then he should have the right to marry as he wishes as well. Collier cited language from dissenting Chief Justice John Roberts, who stated that the “gay marriage” ruling “would apply with equal force to the claim of a fundamental right to plural marriage.”
“We feel entitled for a legal legitimacy and for [the Yellowstone County Courthouse] to deny this is a violation of our civil rights,” Collier told TIME earlier this year. “We feel the marriage equality law applies to us.”
Collier said he and his women want to define “marriage for us.” That’s what the homosexual lobby said. Homosexuals defined “marriage for us.” Siblings and parents who want to marry each other will use the same argument. They’ll cite the Supreme Court decision. What if pedophiles begin to openly advocate lowering the age of consent, take their perverted cases to the courts, and argue that laws against statutory rape illegally discriminate against them?
Nothing is far-fetched anymore. Look what we have now: two men calling themselves “married.” This is what happens once the meaning of marriage is torn asunder and tossed into the abyss of absurdity.
Marriage outside God’s divine order is not marriage. The government may redefine and pervert it but can’t change what God deems it is.
