Fun With Utahns!
We here at the Bubblehead household were amused by the story of the polygamist judge in Utah who is trying to keep his job. (Short story: He married one woman in a civil ceremony, then "married" her two sisters -- ewww! -- in "church" ceremonies with a splinter Mormon offshoot. Please note that the real LDS church immediately excommunicates anyone who attempts to enter into a polygamous marriage.)
Anyway, I was wondering what the "progressives" over at Democratic Underground might say about this. I personally don't see how you can logically support gay marriage while being opposed to consensual polygamy (or, even worse, consensual incest.) Here's a sampling of what they had to say. Some of them are opposed because he's a probably a Reich-wing Re-thug-li-KKKan, but the others are at least being somewhat consistent.
I can just imagine national political figures going on record as being consistent by supporting legalized polygamy along with gay marriage. (OK, I really can't.)
