Washington • If gay marriage is legal, what about polygamy?<quoted text>
Who said it was?
Polygamy just isn't' the subject of this forum, dummy.
Would you like me to find a polygamy forum for you?
It’s a long-debated political question, one that surfaced in Tuesday’s Supreme Court hearing on California’s gay marriage ban, known as Proposition 8.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor brought it up while questioning former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson, a Republican who argued that gay marriage is an individual right and should be protected by the Constitution.
"If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what state restrictions could ever exist?" Sotomayor asked before referencing polygamy and incest among adults.
