Justice Antonin Scal…
Justice Antonin Scalia was right:

Justice Antonin Scalia warned that the ruling [that struck down Texas’ anti-sodomy law] would unleash a wave of challenges to state laws against “bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality, and obscenity.”

So what’s one of the results of that ruling?

Sure enough, [Brian] Barnard, a civil rights attorney, has brought a lawsuit challenging Utah’s ban on polygamy. And some legal experts say the case could have a fighting chance because of the Supreme Court’s gay-sex ruling.

The federal lawsuit, filed Jan. 12, involves a married couple, identified only as G. Lee Cook and D. Cook, and a woman, J. Bronson, who wanted to enter into a plural marriage but were denied a marriage license by Salt Lake County clerks.

Can you hear it; the sound of American society sliding further down that slippery slope? It’s almost deafening.
