Jonah, on slippery slopes again, the American Law Institute is very powerful. Many–maybe most–of its suggested reforms become law. The ALI Principles of Family Dissolution are strongly favored by the radicals. When the ALI report came out, Salon ran an interview with the head of the Alternatives to Marriage Project (the main public arm of the radicals) that overflowed with glee. And there has been very little public opposition to the ALI report. By the way, as I noted in my piece, the most radical parts of the ALI Principles are directly inspired by Canadian law. That, I think, proves that the Canadian connection is real. And this is not to mention the fact that Martha Minow’s views were the key inspiration, not only of Canada’s “Beyond Conjugality” report, but also of Al and Tipper Gore’s approach to families in their book, Joined At the Heart. As to showing the path to the slope, as I said in my response to Millman, I did show it. The equal protection grounds on which gay marriage is being granted will not easily be able to exclude other arrangements. And organized polygamists and polyamorists stand ready to make the case. They even have mainstream support, as I demonstrated. Heck, with mainstream figures like Michael Kinsley proposing the abolition of marriage, why are we even wondering about this? It isn’t limited to feminist radicals any more if Kinsley is involved. And a lesbian couple/sperm donor triad, as I showed, has already been granted triple parent status. So it’s not speculative at this point. Moreover, the subversive logic of “gay marriages of convenience,” as I showed in my piece, will take effect immediately upon legalization of gay marriage. No other legal changes will be necessary. Yet the effect on marriage will be devastating. So I believe I have indeed shown that the slope is not speculative, but present and real. Finally, take a look at this recent piece from Canada’s National Post. It’s by a gay marriage supporter who argues that gay marriage is bound to lead to legalized polygamy. When the issue is finally pressed, I think many people will see it the way he does.
