In 2016, same-sex marriage was legalized in Colombia. One year later, the courts have now recognized a polyamorous family of three men. And there is no slippery slope.
As reported by the Daily Mail:
Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, have signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights.
We wanted to validate our household and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family, said one of the men, Prada, in a video published by Colombian media on Monday. Here in the States, the Associated Press notes that More courts [are] allowing 3 parents of 1 child. An example would be when a lesbian couple has a child with the help of another man, all three of whom become parents.
And there is no slippery slope.
From Biblical Marriage to Ze and Zir in 9 Years When candidate Barack Obama ran for president in 2008, he knew that he could not reveal his true sentiments about gay marriage. According to David Axelrod, he knew it would hurt his election chances. So he clearly and decisively declared that marriage was the union of a man and a woman. He said this was his Christian conviction.
Today, a Republican congressman is shot in cold blood and liberal news commentators suggest that we cant forget his record at a time like this. After all, he wanted to pass a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
And there is no slippery slope.
It wasnt that long ago that the Human Rights Campaign felt the need to remove transgender from its campaign to pass ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Today, in New York City, you can be fined up to $250,000 for failing to accept the stated identity of a trans employee. And Canada has just passed Bill C-16, which requires it citizens to use whatever gender pronouns a person chooses. For instance, Refer to me as ze and zir rather than he or her.
As the National Post explains:
Failure to use a persons pronoun of choice ze, zir, they or any one of a multitude of other potential non-words will land you in hot water with the commission. That, in turn, can lead to orders for correction, apology, Soviet-like re-education, fines and, in cases of continued non-compliance, incarceration for contempt of court. And there is no slippery slope.
When Society Affirms the Slope In recent years, the media has pushed polygamy, polyamory, and even consensual adult incest, with public opinion gradually shifting towards more acceptance of these lifestyles and acts. (For documentation, see here.)
And there is no slippery slope. Or perhaps the slippery slope isnt so bad after all?
That was actually the conclusion of a number of liberal students who challenged a talk I gave at a local, secular university.
Should the government be obligated to recognize relationships between three people? Four? Two adult brothers? I was asked to speak on the subject of God and Sex. I addressed the question, Are biblical standards of sexual purity destructive or constructive, helpful or harmful, binding or liberating? In the lecture, I explained how everything reproduces after its kind. I also explained that we have to look at the trajectory of an idea or action or behavior. Where will it ultimately lead?
When it was time for Q & A, several students began to challenge my talk, claiming that there was no such thing as a slippery slope.
I asked them if they believed in the concepts of love is love and I have the right to marry the one I love. They all said yes, no matter how far it went. Three people? Four? Two adult brothers? And should the government be obligated to recognize all these relationships?
They answered in the affirmative to all my questions, concluding, Well, I guess there is a slippery slope, but its not wrong.
And that is where our society is heading. Its becoming increasingly difficult to deny the reality of the slippery slope. The logical next step is to affirm it.
Betcha they inherit the AIDS right smartly.
And maybe some E-Coli as an appetizer.
Once one insists that moral truths are derived and not received, this slippery slope is inevitable. Its destination is utter ruin. Absolutely anything, however monstrous, can be justified, by tweaking one’s dogmas to fulfill one’s desires or passions.
I’m certain they’re just doing this for tax purposes.
That deserves a pre-post warning ...
They’re married before Baalzebub, not God, and their “love” is a mockery that only defiles what it touches.
I bet something (s) are made “slippery”.
It’s not a slope.
It’s a cliff.
Human centipede marriage?
You do not want to be the one to clean up the “Honeymoon” suite after these faggots.
CAUTION - LIBERALS AT PLAY!
Jesus said to watch for the signs. We are getting inundated with them. Ruth Bell Graham’s “apologizing to Sodom and Gomorrah” statement made some time ago certainly applies.
Pretending to have a wedding does not make it a real marriage. Those three men just had a party, nothing more.
so who tossed the bouquet?
So if one gets a divorce does he get half of the other twos stuff or just a turd?
I see what you did there...
Next men will marry trees, Women Cats, Men Marry children—sorry that exists with our muslim friends. Still, with all the marrying going on the population drops—If it were not for the illegals streaming in we would be in decline.
Men Marry children
You are joking but can you imagine if a rich old father married his daughter on his death bed so she would not have to pay inheritance taxes? What would the govt do then?
