A ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court establishing a right to same-sex “marriage” would move the nation onto a slippery slope toward polygamy, child marriages and more, according to prominent conservative commentator Cal Thomas.
“[If] equal protection covers gays, lesbians, transgenders and the rest, what about the polygamists?” he asked in an interview on Fox News. “Some of their groups have already said that after same-sex marriage is approved, they want polygamy.”
Others will join in as well, he said.
“And even further out, the adult-child marriages, people, men especially, who want to marry young boys or young girls, as occurs in some Muslim countries, by the way, they want their rights, too.
“Who’s going to say ‘no’ and based on what?” he wondered.
His comments come as the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on the definition of marriage. The case comes from the 6th U.S. Circuit, which ruled states’ residents can define marriage for themselves.
Thomas said, “I think there’s legitimate concern about this … when you look at countries like England and Canada, which have passed laws under their various human rights acts prohibiting preachers from preaching about homosexuality and some of these other moral and social issues.
“And they can be fined and in some cases, in extreme cases, put in prison,” he said. “Look even during the anti-slavery movement, even the pro-slavery in the south in the United States, the United States government didn’t come in and try to keep pastors from preaching either for or against slavery.
“They let them have freedom of speech. You hear a lot from the left about the separation of church and state. A lot of evangelicals would be happy if the state got back on its side of the line,” he said.
He warned that it could result in chaos.
