It is not a new argument. It is not even a complicated case. Many in America have said that this type of thing would be next in line if we allowed sodomite unions. I reported just such efforts by Mormons.
Now a Muslim leader in Italy has caused a massive backlash for calling for polygamy in the face of civil unions for homosexuals.
Following the introduction of civil partnerships, Muslim representatives in Italy are now demanding the legalisation of polygamy.
The UCOII president wrote: “When it comes to civil rights here, then polygamy is a civil right. Muslims do not agree with homosexual partnerships, and yet they have to accept a system that allows it. There is no reason why Italy should not accept polygamous marriages of consenting persons.”
It seems that there is really no logical reason to disallow polygamy. If the parties involved have no problem, why should anyone else? After all, if Italians do not have a problem with sodomite unions, why do they care about multiple wives for Muslim men?
