U.S. Gay Marriage FAQ
With gay marriage now legal in all 50-states of the United States, some people may have questions. Here are some answers:
1) Do I Have to Get Gay Married Now?
No. You do not. Ever. Unless you want to.
2) Won't This Lead to Polygamy?
Not likely. SCOTUS ruled that same-sex couples deserve the same Due Process and Equal Protection rights as opposite-sex couples, interracial couples, etc... Their ruling requires only that the right of two consenting adults to marry not be limited by race, gender, sexuality, creed, etc... Subsequently, were a state to legalize Polygamy, they could not discriminate between one straight man marrying two straight women, one bi man marrying one straight woman and one gay man, one lesbian marrying two others, etc... However, as long as no one can enjoy the benefits of Polygamy (i.e. as long as it is equally illegal for everyone), Polygamy needn't be legalized.
3) Won't This Lead to People Marrying Animals?
No. No it won't. Because animals aren't people, cannot consent, and do not have Constitutional protections like the right to marry. Does that answer your question, Mister Santorum?
4) How Will This Affect My Straight Marriage and Family?
It won't. Unless maybe you're in denial about being in the closet, and this gives you the courage to come out.
5) Won't It Violate My Religious Rights to Have to Treat Gays as Equals?
No, it really, really won't. But don't worry, I'm sure you'll find some way to still treat them as lesser beings if you try hard enough.
