Now that “gay” (I hate that word now) rights are secured, thanks to a feckless few unelected justices on the SCOTUS, the next barriers to be broken down are, first, polygamy, and then pedophilia.

Italian Islamic leader wants legal recognition of polygamy
The founder of Italy’s main Islamic organization says that since the country now recognizes civil unions for same-sex couples, there’s no reason that polygamous relationships shouldn’t also be afforded legal protection. [How will the Holy See and Italy’s bishops react to this?]
Only months after Italy approved civil unions for lesbians and gays, a leader of the country’s Islamic community is using the move to argue for the civil recognition of polygamy. He also claimed that Pope Francis’ silence regarding his suggestion means that the pontiff has perhaps understood that it’s a “simple civil right” and a matter of equality. [Will there be a clarification?]
Hamza Piccardo is founder of the Union of Islamic Communities in Italy, an umbrella organization which represents most of Italy’s Muslim communities. Recently, Piccardo shared a picture of the mayor of Milan with a gay couple after celebrating their union on Facebook.
Piccardo accompanied the picture with the following message:
“If it’s only a matter of civil rights, then polygamy is a civil right.”
We’ll probably see that last sentence in a SCOTUS decision in about 5 years or so.
If they don’t get their way, will they start burning cars and rioting in the suburbs of Italian cities?
The moderation queue is ON.
How important the upcoming presidential election is in regard to justices and the SCOTUS.
