Slippery Slope: More Than 2 Parents

…well, you have to decide if it is a slippery slope first, and then if it is whether it is worth sliding down…I’ve pointed out the slippery slope, and we’re headed down it.

As have I.

I think more than two parents may actually be better. I base this on absolutely nothing substantial.

To my knowledge, there isn’t a country that legalized same-sex marriage and then went on to legalize polygamy.

I don’t believe there exists a country in the world that recognizes both polygamy and same sex marriage either.

Only Islamic nations recognize polygamous marriages really.

So no, a slippery slope doesn’t exist. Furthermore, how likely would it be this bill actually gets legislated into law?

This law is proposed because there was a case were two women were the “parents” of a child, one went to jail, the other got sick.

The father wanted to step forward but could not because children are only allowed to have two parents.

So, the child is now taken care of by the state instead of his or her father.

Yippee.

In California? The land of fruit and nuts? More than likely. If not now, give it a few years.

What is the end result of this slippery slope? If you look at each case where more than 2 parents would be needed it might sound more reasonable than just reading the title of the article. Does anything actually change for the child in these cases?

Who knows? Would you take a ride down a slippery slope if you didn’t know where it went? Canada has already attempted to overturn their polygamy laws in the supreme court for one thing.

BREITBART.COM: 'The Association of Certified Family Law Specialists noted that tax deductions, citizenship, probate, public assistance, school notifications and Social Security rights all can be affected by the bill.

Karen Anderson, of the California Protective Parents Association, said, “It’s hard enough for children to be split up two ways, much less multiple ways.”’

What does this law have to do with polygamy?

So, basically they are legally recognizing godparents?

The first part of that just looks like some guys bad interpretation of the law. The law specifically says multiple parents, no where in that does it imply multiple wives for one man.

There’s a South American tribe that believes that it’s best for a woman to have multiple men because they believe you need more than one man to most effectively fertilize her egg. They also each pith in for caretaking.

That’s even worse than polygamy.

And again:

This law was made because a kid had two parents, both female, one went to prison, the other one to a hospital because she was very, very sick.

The biological father could not take care of the child, even though he was willing to do so, because a kid can only have two parents, period.

Allowing that father to take care of his own child is worse than polygamy?

Really?

Like, really really?

Talking point. Mark Leno is a radical gay activist. Everyone knows where this one is going. And it also gives activist judges the power to give children to all sorts of people and legally declare they have 615 parents if they like.

That is not a talking point, that is the reason why that law was proposed.

Now you can argue that it is better for children to be a ward of the state than having more than 2 parents, but this is what you are proposing whether you you actually do so or not.

I, for one, look forward to this inevitable step in the direction of Progress, and anyone who stands in the way of this progressive movement is a bigot by denying consenting adults the absolute right to raise these kids any way they want.

It’s like the next next Civil Rights Movement, you know.

Sounds like a wonderful situation.

Yes, period. Why the kid had two moms is beyond me.

Really?

Like, really really? You don’t see how the situation was messed up before we got to this point? His own father was not even considered his parent.
