“Marriage, Polygamy and Gays”

The Bilerico Project has this post discussing the relationship between the advocates of same sex “marriage” and the various interests promoting polygamy.  The post indicates:

The fact is, not one but three different factions want to get polygamy legalized. Each of them base their claim to religious freedom on their “sacred book.” . . .

So…is there any truth to the boogeyman claim that same-sex marriage opens the door to polygamy?

Though the DOMA dogmatists insist that our success would be a real threat, I doubt it’s going to happen that way. If same-sex marriage gets accepted first and the polygamists ride into Camelot on our coat tails, they will do it kicking and screaming and telling the whole world how much they hate us. Because all three of the polygamy lobbies are opposed to homosexuality on principle . . .

In the meantime, Mormon, Christian and Muslim advocates of plural marriage accuse us gays of trying to “redefine” marriage — yet they’re trying hard to redefine marriage themselves. It’s the biggest “go figure” we’ve ever faced . . .
