We told you so: Conservatives foresaw polygamy ruling

A federal judge’s ruling in a Utah polygamy case has released a flood of “I told you so” reactions from traditional-marriage supporters, who have fought — often in vain — to formally define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

“Some times I hate it when what I predict comes true,” tweeted former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who has predicted polygamy as one of many logical outcomes of the legal strategies and arguments used to support same-sex marriage.

“Well, that slope didn’t take long to turn slippery,” Rod Dreher wrote in an American Conservative article titled “Utah & Polygamy: We Told You So.”

Our warnings about legalized polygamy were not fearmongering, said Autumn Leva, director of governmental affairs for Minnesota for Marriage, which fought in vain for voter approval of a constitutional marriage amendment last year.

“We said that if you redefine marriage to be just an emotional bond between consenting adults, then any consenting adults can make that argument [for a right to marry] — even for multiple marriages,” Ms. Leva said.

    Well, there you have it. First we allow for the re-definition of marriage and anything will go. It will be only a matter of time and the animal lovers will be filing there case as to why should they be excluded as they are not hurting anyone and they are consenting adults.
    Sick freaking world we live in.

    Big deal – its probably a lousy idea from a practical standpoint and almost always in favor of the male,but if they don’t bother me,I have no need to bother them. Besides, blabbering Santorum is big on the Bible, so perhaps he should read it some more? It is loaded with various polygamous and other “unconventional”” marital arrangements.

      Yeah, As well as child brides. Wow, I hope your daughters are all healthy and hot looking? Maybe your grand-daughters if your daughters are to old (like over 16 years old). The slippery slope of the progressive loons like you does not stop at logic but rather outcome. Enjoy the world you create imbecile.

      Oh I know what you will say if you comment back.. You will say well they are not adults and cannot make that decision. My comment back to you will be “Really, then how is it they can make the decision without parental consent to have an abortion or they can go and get the pill will out that consent or knowledge also”. You do realize age is just a number, right.
