I've seen some ridiculous predictions of gloom and doom from fundies once gay marriage finally becomes legal. But WorldNutDaily's David Kupelian takes the cake in his latest column. He claims that if gay marriage ever becomes legal, the next step is polygamy.
For Muslims living in the U.S., for whom polygamy is allowed under the Quran (up to four wives), we will see large numbers of polygamous marriages within the United States of America, just as there are in France today – where polygamy is still illegal! (The French so fear their Muslim subculture, they don't enforce the law. In fact, French taxpayers pay for free housing for many polygamous Muslims, subsidizing special multi-room apartment units to accommodate the various wives and their children.) And of course, polygamy's legalization in the U.S. will serve as a powerful magnet to draw vastly more Muslims to immigrate to the U.S., and no doubt will encourage more American men to convert to Islam to give religious cover to their dreams of convening their own personal harem.
Downright comical, even by WND standards. And I say this as someone who has several LGBT friends and was one of the token straights at an MCC.
Kupelian's claim is a textbook example of the "slippery slope" logical fallacy. We wouldn't expect Kupelian to know this--logic, after all, is an alien concept for the WND crowd. But even with this to consider, his claims are downright laughable.
If I'm reading this right, allowing gay marriage will not only open the door to polygamy, but also let radical Islam through the back door. And all this without even a shred of evidence to back it up. News flash, Mr. Kupelian--most gays and lesbians are as adamant about monogamy as straights are. Why do you think they call their partners "life partners"?
