After Gay "Marriage," Polygamy, Polyandry, and Marry Your Dog

Scalia was right.

...inevitably Justice Kennedy and a majority of the Supreme Court are now opening the door to the effective dissolution of marriage. Polygamy is on its way to being legalized by the courts and surely polyamory – relationships that involve multiple people of both sexes – can not be far behind. Concepts such as bigamy, adultery and incest – as seen in that New York magazine article – will perforce follow this logic.  

The refusal to follow the Constitution means, inevitably, that any institution out there in American life and law – the pillars of what we call the “civil society” – can be unraveled thread by thread at executive or judicial whim, beginning with the Constitution itself. Without the consent of the governed. Unconstitutionally. Unlawfully. Unwisely.  ...

Scott Walker will punt. 

Actually, he already has done so on the queer "marriage" question:

"For us, it's over in Wisconsin," Walker said of the fight over same-sex unions. "Others will have to talk about the federal level."

 No, Scott.  As any military theorist will tell you, the war is not over until your enemy says it is.  If you actually oppose queer "marriage," you will not surrender.  Unless you're running for President, of course.
