That didn't take long

World War P is the next great civil rights crusade:
A federal judge has struck down parts of Utah’s anti-polygamy law as unconstitutional in a case brought by a polygamous star of a reality television series. Months after the Supreme Court bolstered rights of same-sex couples, the Utah case could open a new frontier in the nation’s recognition of once-prohibited relationships.
If the purpose of government is to ensure equal freedom for all, then existentially there must always be an oppressor to overcome. We were repeatedly assured during the homogamy crusade that only hateful bigots thought it was a slippery slope that would lead to the legalization of other perversions. Are we supposed to remember that? It's difficult to keep track of all these hatefacts. But really, slippery slopes, like stereotypes, are mostly true. If you think beta males complain about alpha harems now...

  1. My understanding is that it wasn't the multiple-spouse part of the law that was struck down, or the reason for the issue, but the fact that the law treated co-habitation the same as marriage. Of course, that could just be the excuse to shoot things down for now.

    Technically, the Supreme Court hasn't ruled decisively on Same Sex marriage yet, and I don't expect polygamy to be tackled until after that.
