Marriage – Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You!


by Suzanne Olden

There are times when it is just impossible not to say “I told you so.” This is definitely one of them. I can’t tell you how many discussions and arguments I’ve gotten into over the last several years over gay marriage and the inevitable consequences of redefining traditional marriage. Specifically, when conservatives like me would point out that opening that particular Pandora’s Box would mean that other types of marriage, like polygamy, would be next. The response from gay marriage supporters? “That would NEVER happen! It’s illegal! It’s different! That subjugates women and abuses children. Gay marriage is all about equality.”

Sigh, guess what? IT’S HAPPENING. Don’t say you weren’t warned!

DOMA was struck down this summer and the left rejoiced. Those of us on the right saw the writing on the wall and warned of what would happen: legalization of polygamy and furtherance of religious intolerance. Response from the left? It’ll never happen. The Advocate called warnings “hyperbolic” and “erroneous.” Except they weren’t. Recent court rulings are proving those “hyperbolic” and “erroneous” warnings were not so “hyperbolic” and “erroneous” after all.

A ruling in Utah is proving that the legalization of polygamy prophecy was anything but “hyperbole.” On Friday, a federal judge gutted Utah’s laws outlawing polygamy. He called them a violation of the free exercise of religion which means they are unconstitutional. Just to give some historical context, in order for Utah and a handful of other western states to become states, the Federal government required them to ban polygamy, calling it “barbaric” and a “twin of slavery.” Slavery! Can you even see anyone getting away with THAT comment today?
