Mark Steyn on the inevitability of Polygamy

Yes, it's Canada, but he and I think the same thing will happen on both sides of the border. Mark fears polygamy, I embrace it. Oddly, we were thinking the same way, at the same time. He claims to have pointed this out in 2004, about the same time I did.
MacLeans - "(A) mere half-decade down the slippery slope and here we are, with the marrying kind of Bountiful, B.C., headed for the Supreme Court of Canada. Five years ago, proponents of same-sex marriage went into full you-cannot-be-serious eye-rolling mode when naysayers warned that polygamy would be next. As I wrote in that Western Standard piece:

'Gay marriage, they assure us, is the merest amendment to traditional marriage, and once we’ve done that we’ll pull up the drawbridge.' "

The logic is the same on both sides of the border, and gay marriage is now legal here in Vermont, for the first time in these United States as a function of the will of the people, through the Vermont Legislature.
