FRC: Homosexual Activists Struggling With the Likely Results of Same-Sex 'Marriage'

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Over the past several months, Family Research Council (FRC) spokesmen, pro-family leaders and news anchors have repeatedly asked the nation's leading advocates for same-sex "marriage" a very simple question: If we create a constitutional right for homosexual "marriage," how can we then deny other consenting adults from having their relationships officially sanctioned, such as polygamists? And without fail, they have never had an answer.

From Ralph Neas of People for the American Way to representatives of the Human Rights Campaign and the Log Cabin Republicans, the homosexual activist community's spokesmen are trying to avoid this issue. An example came last week, when HRC President Cheryl Jacques was pressed by CNN's Tucker Carlson, and she was clearly without an answer:

CARLSON: ...You haven't answered the question (about gay marriage leading to polygamy) yet.

JACQUES: I just answered it.

CARLSON: No, no, why not three?

JACQUES: I want two committed parents, like every family.

CARLSON: But why deny the right of [three] people?

JACQUES: Because I don't approve of that.

"Saying 'because I don't approve of that' is a curious response when it comes from the group pushing a policy that 65 percent of Americans 'don't approve of'," said FRC President Tony Perkins. "The reality is, homosexual activists hope that Americans will follow them blindly down the road toward same-sex 'marriage,' a road that will clearly lead to other dangerous experiments with the institution of marriage. At the very least, same-sex 'marriage' activists should be honest with the American people about the long-term effects of what they are advocating."
