In commenting on an NBC News story
about a polyamorous family living in Atlanta, conservative radio host
Laura Ingraham suggested a Supreme Court ruling allowing gay and
lesbian couples to marry would open the door for the legalization of
“I thought that was beyond sad and
disturbing,” Ingraham said of the news story on Friday. “And
“I mean, the polyamory cases for
marriage are already making their way, I believe, through the court
system. Probably make their way eventually to the Supreme Court.”
“I don't know how the Supreme Court
could possibly conclude that marriage isn't appropriate for
polyamorous couples if it's appropriate for non-traditional couples,”
told her listeners on Friday.
Ingraham said her reasoning was there
was nothing special about two people.
“The legal reasoning: What's so
special about two? Why not three, or four, five? Why not one? Why
can't one person be married? I'm married to myself.”
“The logic just isn't there once you
take it away from the biological underpinnings, the Judeo-Christian
tradition, then anything goes,” she added.
