It was raised, by a Justice, prior to the ruling.<quoted text>
then show us in SCOTUS's decision where they ruled on polygamy. I'll wait eagerly to see the text.
Washington If gay marriage is legal, what about polygamy?
Its a long-debated political question, one that surfaced in Tuesdays Supreme Court hearing on Californias 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.
Perhaps YOU could answer the question.
Nice dodge. Why does it matter to you, SSM advocates, and/or society at large if polygamy is legalized in some form? If the sole legal definition of marriage as monogamous union of husband and wife is discarded, as several states have done, why should it matter what further redefinitions take place? Are YOU going to argue that SSM is the proverbial "line in the sand"?and yes, it does matter. if it's worth fighting for, then step up to the plate and take that swing at it in court. put up or shut up. prove your points, or lack thereof, in a court of law before a seated judge. i'll be happy to read about either your success or failure. if not you per se, then someone from that side.
