Angel Castillo writes for the “Florida Voices” opinion page:
Now that President Obama has “evolved” into a public supporter of gay marriage, the former constitutional law professor should turn his attention to another minority persecuted because of their marital preferences: polygamists.
If Obama is intellectually honest, he should also support “marriage equality” for “plural families” that choose to follow the example of Old Testament polygamists Abraham, David, Jacob and Solomon.
I am, of course, speaking only of plural marriages for consenting adults, just as in the case of same-gender marriages.
The president should articulate what the difference is – if he sees any – between marriages formed between one man and another man, or one woman and another woman, and a marriage made up of some numerical combination of men and women. The same constitutional protections of freedom of speech, association, religion, privacy, due process and equal protection are at stake.
