well well well,

A CNN.com commentary co-authored by Robert P. George and Rhodes Scholar Sherif Girgis says that if the Supreme Court finds that marriage is "simply about recognizing bonds of affection or romance," then "the increasingly common phenomenon of group (polyamorous) partnerships" could be recognized as a marriage.

Note the authors:

Robert P. George - is a visiting professor at Harvard Law School and McCormick professor of jurisprudence at Princeton University.

Sherif Girgis - is a recent Rhodes Scholar, is a philosophy Ph.D. candidate at Princeton and a J.D. candidate at Yale Law School.

And they simply state that it will only naturally lead to this.

And not just 1 man and 2 women

And not just 1 man and 5 women (which is weird enough)

No, now it could be 1 man and 3 other men

Or 2 men and 2 women in a group marriage.

This isn't surprising.

The liberals just couldn't let it out of the bag yet.

You are right. It isn't suprising that a conservative think tank that opposes same sex marriage would write such a thing.
hmm?

since you want to completely destroy all moral compass, then marriage between brother and sisters should be accepted, as well as sex with animals.

there should be no limit to the number of people in a marriage, and if all men, then take the 2nd letter in each of first names to form child's last name. Cindy has 13 Daddies ought be interesting to watch.

Personally I don't think government should be involved in marriage AT ALL.

Notice how the Libs will not hardly even discuss the subject of the OP?

(The subject is "Group" marriage)

I'm guessing that they don't think it's plausible. I don't really understand why a man would want four wives. Most people can't even be OK with one!

Tony, I tend to agree. I have never understood why the state had to "license" relationships. I know I may stir up the pot with that thought, but it's just an "in" for the state to create a more complex tax code and insert more controls on its populace.

He gets just as much of a thrill thinking of the 2% poundage going to the counties.
