The Left has been all a-flutter of late about Dr. Ben Carson’s recent comments that homosexuality is a choice. In a panel discussion on that topic, self-described queer CNN host Don Lemon declared that the homosexual marriage debate has been “settled” by the courts.
“There is no definition of marriage as between a man and woman. Marriage is between two people,” according to Lemon. “The courts in many states and the Supreme Court has decided that marriage is between two people, whether it’s the same sex or opposite sex. So, we’ll move on. … That is settled. That is not even in question anymore.”
Apparently it is still in question, despite Lemon’s assurances.
In Thailand, three homosexual men have announced that they were all married to each other, in what seems to be the world’s first polygamous queer marriage.
The media reports have only given the men’s first names — Bell, Joke and Art. Thai law forbids homosexuality, so the trio didn’t have a state-sanctioned ceremony, but they say that they are married under Buddhist law. Buddhism has no prohibitions against either polygamy or homosexuality, except for monks.
The Thai constitution is also in the process of being rewritten, and word is the new charter will include legal recognition for all sexual persuasions.
“We believe many people do understand and accept our choice. Love is love, after all,” Bell said.
When Lemon told his panelists that it was settled that marriage is between two people, not just a man and woman, it was just an effort to make conservatives and other believers in real marriage shut up. It’s the same tactic the Left uses with climate change: It’s settled, so shut up.
But it seems that those people he is telling to shut up are right, because many of them have pointed out all along that once you muck around with the definition of marriage, which is what the homosexual rights movement has done, then there are no more rules. You can’t let two men or two women “marry” without allowing polygamy, child abuse, bestiality and who knows what else.
Allowing homosexual marriage means all bets are off.
That infamous slippery slope isn’t just a fanciful warning. It’s that thing we’re sliding down right now.
