Leftist law professor says gay marriage likely to lead to legalized incest, polygamy

The Daily Caller 19 July 2013
In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s two recent rulings validating gay  marriage, a Boston College Law School professor has come out and admitted what  gay marriage adversaries have long argued: incest and polygamy are just around  the bend.
“You know those opponents of marriage equality who said government approval  of same-sex marriage might erode bans on polygamous and incestuous marriages?”  asks the professor, Kent Greenfield. “They’re  right.”
In a piece at the website of The American Prospect, the Catholic law  school prof then goes on to challenge gay marriage supporters to differentiate  totally acceptable gay and lesbian marriages from various forms of communal  marriage and sibling love.
“The left is in this bind in part because our arguments for expanding the  marriage right to same-sex couples have been so compelling,” Greenfield brags  proudly. “Marriage, we’ve said, is about defining one’s own family and  consecrating a union based on love. We’ve voiced these arguments in  constitutional terms, using claims arising from the doctrines of ‘fundamental  rights’ and equal protection.”
