During the years leading up to the same-sex “marriage” ruling by the Supreme Court, Christian Conservatives who opposed redefining marriage were routinely mocked for using the “slippery slope” argument which suggested that the elimination of the one-man/one-woman requirement for marriage would ultimately lead to additional redefinitions of what constitutes a marriage. This concern was addressed by Chief Justice John Roberts in his dissenting opinion in the Obergefell v. Hodges case when he wrote:
“It is striking how much of the majority’s reasoning would apply with equal force to the claim of a fundamental right to plural marriage.”
It didn’t take long for these fears to be realized. Just weeks after the same-sex marriage ruling, Kody Brown, the star of TLC’s reality-TV show, Sister Wives, went to court to have his polygamist relationship with four women legally recognized. Though the case was initially thrown out, Brown continues his fight through appeals and public relations events.
At about this same time, Nathan Collier of Montana, another Sister Wives celebrity pressed for a marriage certificate to join his wife and his girlfriend to himself in a legally recognized polygamist union. He is still fighting his case.
While you might assume that these two cases were argued using religious freedom as their defense–both men are professed Mormons–their argument was that the Obergefell ruling allowed for a redefinition of marriage. Even though these two particular cases are a few years old, the goal of LGBT radicals to destroy traditional marriage continues tp becoming a reality.
A recent story in the NY Post glorified the so-called marriage of two bisexual women and one man. Adam Lyons, the man in the relationship, considers himself “the luckiest man alive” because he and his two wives can have sex together, sleep with others outside the three of them, and bring in a fourth person for a quick orgy whenever the mood strikes. Lyons believes that threesome marriages “should be the future of relationships,” because “three people and three parents makes so much sense…”
Brooke Shedd, one of the “wives” in this open relationship, hinted that she would like to use their unique arrangement as ammunition to join in the culture war on marriage.
“I would definitely love to get married to Adam and Jane (the other female). It’s something we’ve always wanted, even though it’s not legal.”
Give it time, Brooke. Give it time.
