Polygamist Jumps on Bandwagon After Gay Marriage Victory

July 20, 2011 08:00

Marriage supporters have warned for years that fabricating same-sex “marriage” will only serve to usher in more and more assaults on the foundational building block of society.  And now, in a perfect yet appalling example of what’s been foretold, polygamist Kody Brown is chasing the success of the homosexual agenda in New York State by filing a lawsuit to strike down the laws against polygamy in an effort to save himself and his four “wives” from prosecution.

According to the New York Times , the suit asks “the federal courts to tell states that they cannot punish polygamists for their own ‘intimate conduct’ so long as they are not breaking other laws, like those regarding child abuse, incest or seeking multiple marriage licenses.”  (Brown only has an official marriage license with one of his four wives.)

This attempt to classify and therefore exempt polygamist relations as “intimate conduct” rests on the Supreme Court’s 2003 ruling in Lawrence v. Texas, which declared “state sodomy laws as unconstitutional intrusions on the ‘intimate conduct’ of consenting adults.”  Although this ruling has been described as “establishing a constitutional ‘right’ to homosexual sodomy,” it has been and continues to be parlayed into much more.

Justice Antonin Scalia, in dissenting from the court’s decision in Lawrence, saw clearly that the majority’s decision would serve as a “threat to state laws ‘based on moral choices’ against ‘bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality and obscenity.’ ”  And that’s exactly what has happened since the decision was handed down.  Homosexual activists have leveraged Lawrence to advance same-sex “marriage” repeatedly, and unsurprisingly, polygamist Brown is now arguing that what he does in his private life with four women is “intimate conduct,” and therefore constitutionally justified under Lawrence.
