Dr. Keith Ablow, a psychiatrist and
contributor to Fox News, on Thursday argued that legalizing gay
marriage would inevitably lead to polygamy.
Appearing on The O'Reilly Factor
to discuss two Supreme Court cases related to gay marriage, Ablow and
guest host Laura Ingraham agreed on the consequences of marriage
“The government shouldn't be
expressing a preference for whether two people of any gender get
together and call themselves married. That should be a matter for
religious institutions,” Ablow said.
“The government should never have
been involved in these personal matters and that's why it's coming
back to bite us. Because frankly Laura, it's just completely
illogical to me and I think highly prejudicial that a state or the
federal government would say two men can marry but not two women and
a man. Three people can be in love. If love is the arbiter, then
three people can marry.”
“Doctor, hey, that's coming, right?”
“I would assume,” he answered.
“I don't know what argument – I
think you're right – you can make against that. Why is two so
special? Why not four? Why not one?”
“It's coming so we're done. Go to
your church, go to your temple, go to your polygamist temple.
Wherever you want to go, go do it.
“Polygamy's back, according to Dr.
Ablow,” Ingraham added with a chuckle.
