By Katy Faust and Stacy Manning, The Federalist: The Massachusetts town of Somerville has become the first in the nation to legalize polyamorous relationships. It’s evidence of the slippery slope social conservatives warned would follow legalizing gay marriage. Polygamy was the obvious evolution of redefining marriage.

Massachusetts city approves polyamory, the inevitable consequence of gay ‘marriage’

Jul 4, 2020 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: Once we start redefining marriage, ‘those redefinitions have no principled stopping point.’ Earlier this year, a Utah Republican put forward a bill to decriminalize polygamy, receiving unanimous consent almost immediately from a key Senate committee.
