Society has successfully rewritten the definition of marriage. The sacred nuptials have been changed from one man and one woman to include one man and one man and one woman and one woman. Although American society has approved this, many churches and other cultures have not.
Whether we approve of the change or not, we need to admit that the train has left the station and we need to deal with it. The question now is what other cars were attached to the train. Is polygamy the next car to hook on?
Society is currently shouting “No!” but why? Once society rewrites a moral code (based on popular opinion) what is stopping it from changing another? There is no moral basis for the change to include homosexual marriage other than “acceptance of lifestyle preference”. When the numbers stand up for “acceptance” with multiple partners what will society say then? “No, we accept this change but not that one.” In other words – you can’t have it both ways. If a moral law is going to change without a solid reason then any moral law can be changed in the same way.
There are plenty of arguments for polygamy from both men and women. Society is still closing its eyes to them but what if . . . ? What pressure will be needed? What popular Hollywood types will be needed to push it? What liberal politician will need to be elected?
Remember that the train has left the station and I believe there may be room for more cars. Who will society turn to stop it?
Matthew 19:4-6 (NIV)
4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
