Interesting article in the Federalist:
Stop Calling It Marriage Equality
All you’ve done is redefine the parameters of marriage. You support gay marriage, not “marriage equality.”
In a nutshell
It's not a slippery slope. What's the argument against it? It has a history as long as mankind and rejecting traditional marriage while claiming we need to adhere to the late tradition of two people is odd and illogical.
A look at history and the whole "traditional marriage" argument falls apart.
Not to mention that government has no place in our private lives.
Some RWs are against nanny state type laws right up until they're for it.
Defining the marriage contract is not a "nanny state type law."
Fining a baker for not baking a cake? THAT'S a nanny state type law.
If three people are married and one dies, are the remaining two still married? And if not, who gets custody of the kids?
Polygamy is indeed a slippery slope fallacy.
But the reasons used to advocate for legal gay marriage can be used unchanged to advocate for legal plural marriage. That isn't a slippery slope.
Dead wrong. You can have your own opinions but not your own definitions.
Separate names with a comma.
