    In a game-changer for the legal fight over same-sex marriage that gives credence to opponents’ “slippery slope” arguments, a federal judge has now ruled that the legal reasoning for same-sex marriage means that laws against polygamy are likewise unconstitutional.

    In his 91-page opinion in Brown v. Buhman, on Dec. 13, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups struck down Utah’s law making polygamy a crime. In so doing, he may have opened Pandora’s Box.

    It would seem that Mormons have a class-action lawsuit against the USA if the Supreme Court upholds this decision. In the 19th century, the federal government defined marriage and outlawed polygamy. In the 21st century, we are told that the federal government cannot rule on marriage. If the neo-barbarians are correct, then by their logic we have a crime against humanity in the 19th century by the federal government and probably by the GOP.
