ACLU supports polygamy

By Aussiegirl

An article in the
Yale Daily News has an interesting tidbit from the new President of the ACLU.

Of course we knew it was inevitable. Once homosexuals are allowed to marry -- why not polygamy? Why not bigamy? Why not polyandry? I mean, we can't discriminate against women, can we?

Can consensual sex between adults and children be far behind? After all Hillary Clinton argued that children should be autonomous from their parents and make their own decisions. Parents are allowed no say in whether or not their daughters seek abortions, a potentially life-threatening and fertility threatening procedure.

And once we have gone down this road -- if you think about it -- what's wrong with marrying your pet? I mean -- there are probably plenty of women who would find a meaningful and state-sanctioned relationship with their cat to be preferable to that husband who never picks up his pajamas or remembers her birthday or wants to snuggle up at night. And what man, for that matter, might not sometimes prefer the company of his faithful companion, the dog, to a pesky woman who is always asking that loaded question, "Honey, does this make me look fat?"

Ah, what a Brave New World awaits us -- courtesy of the ACLU and the liberal left wing of the democrat party. Wedding bells, anyone?


An overflowing crowd of more than 60 students and community members crammed into
the Swing Space common room Tuesday to hear Nadine Strossen, the president of
the American Civil Liberties Union, discuss the ACLU's agenda on issues ranging
from gay marriage rights to Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction."

(snip)In response to a student's question about gay marriage, bigamy and
polygamy in certain communities, Strossen said the ACLU is actively fighting to
defend freedom of choice in marriage and partnerships. "We have defended the
right for individuals to engage in polygamy," Strossen said. "We defend the
freedom of choice for mature, consenting individuals."

Can't you just picture all of those greedy divorce lawyers rubbing their hands together and grinning, as they anticipate the increase in the number of unhappy couples who will require their services.

You're right!! Whole busloads of them - like those clowns coming out of Volkswagons in circuses - to handle all those multiple marriages. Why not group marriages? Multiple men and women -- you know -- they could sing that old rock song, "We are family" -- after all -- why should we limit ourselves -- the more love the better.
