The slippery slope conservatives warned about if same-sex marriage passed in Illinois just got more grease. The advocates of same sex marriage argued, "We're not out to destroy marriage. We just want marriage equality for the GLBT community." Well, now comes the grease from Utah and North Dakota.
"North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem filed a legal opinion last week confirming that the state does not recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages, allowing a man married to another man to come to North Dakota and marry a woman without divorcing his husband."
"Fueling debates over marriage and religious freedom, a federal judge has declared that Utah laws criminalizing polygamy are unconstitutional, ruling on a case involving the Brown family from TLC’s reality series "Sister Wives."
"Social conservatives who argued for marriage solely between one man and one woman have long warned that allowing gay marriage would ultimately lead to allowing polygamy..."
It's too bad the Catholic bishops and Cardinal George did not do more to discipline Catholic Democrats in Illinois to stop this growing chaos in human relationships. A retreat from the world into the bubble of a cloister is not what Catholics need in these troubled times.
Beyond that, the claim that GLBT people want to create an alternative universe is called outrageous by the Left. Yet, we have this coming from New York City: "A married, heterosexual gym teacher at a tony Upper West Side private school was fired because his lesbian supervisor disapproved of his “traditional family status..."
"On at least one occasion Kenney was dissuaded from attending social events with his peers because he was a heterosexual, married male with children, who wouldn't fit in with [Krieger's] 'culture.'"
More grease is yet to come. According to the New York Times, "...Mr. Wise filed papers on Monday in State Supreme Court in Fulton County, N.Y., demanding that courts in New York recognize Tommy (a chimpanzee) as a legal person, with a right to liberty..."
Because the new marriage law in Illinois claims that marriage is between two persons, look to see some Jane Goodall enthusiast suing to marry a chimp, once the Nonhuman Rights Project is successful in its lawsuit.
Seems far fetched, you say? Twenty-five years ago slipping into same-sex marriage was a far out idea, too. Thanks to Gov. Pat Quinn and Rep. Marty Moylan, the slide has been greased in Illinois.
