Menage a Trois

Even though bigamy is a crime in Britain, the decision by ministers means that polygamous marriages can now be recognised formally by the state, so long as the weddings took place in countries where the arrangement is legal.The outcome will chiefly benefit Muslim men with more than one wife, as is permitted under Islamic law. Ministers estimate that up to a thousand polygamous partnerships exist in Britain, although they admit there is no exact record…. (Source)

Back in 2003 when the marriage debate was heating up, I was asked by a young reporter how same-sex “marriage” could possibly affect me.  Of course, this wasn’t his argument per se, but the argument of the culture at large which sees sexual morality is something strictly a private matter.  This is a lie. It has always been a lie even before Pierre Trudeau preached the “sexual debauched gospel”. 

All morality has social consequences far beyond the immediate parties involved.  As he stood there smiling, I quipped:  “I don’t particularly want the State to teach MY children about sodomy in the classroom.”  His smile quickly faded as he understood immediately that once a behaviour is given legal protection by the State, the State will recognize that behaviour in every common area shared by all citizens.

When you talk to people who support same-sex “marriage”, you will find a 50/50 split on whether polygamy should be permitted.  Obviously, if the basis of marriage is merely consent by adults, then there can be no basis for “discriminating” against a “menage a trois, quatre, cinq, ou six”. 

The thing that really amuses me is that laws forbidding polygamy were a protection FOR women against exploitation BY men.  The Christian tradition holds that polygamy is an abuse of women, and a demotion of their inherent dignity as persons created in God’s image.  What polygamy is saying is that  “one woman is not enough for one man” – that the needs of one woman cannot meet the needs of one man. And that, of course, tells our daughters that their dignity is less than our sons.  

And the Left just keeps barrelling down the road to Sharia and dhimmitude, proving once again that sin does make you very, very stupid.

Seeking liberation and license, they will find enslavement and demotion.
