    The Code makes it a crime for any person to enter into “any kind of conjugal union with more than one person at the same time.”

    That is crazy. Threesomes are illegal?

  2. If grown women and men voluntarily enter polygamous relationships, I’d also have trouble specifying what the moral problem is with that or how it necessarily relates to religion other than those who insist that “Marriage is between one man and one woman” because they believe God told them this.

    Paul’s comments, and Prof. Maldonado’s post, succinctly illustrate why some oppose the recognition of same sex marriage. Once marriage is redefined to include same sex couples, what principle would bar, for example, polyamourous relationships from recognition as “marriage”?

    Religious belief may well animate much of the opposition to homosexual marriage. Does that make such opposition illegitimate?

    No. But if only religious belief animates the opposition to homosexual marriage, then it’s hard to understand why that opposition should be written into the law.

  5. A better approach might be to charge sexual assault by deception – to show that one or more of these women was incapable of giving informed consent to sexual relations due to a lack of education or worldly experience.
