"What is the objection to polygamy?"
"The argument you're making is exactly what was rejected in Loving."
"Do you want kids adopted by homosexual parents to be worse off?"
"How? How does it hurt heterosexual marriage? How does it hurt children?"
The questions came fast and furious from all three judges today, and neither side of the arguments in Wolf v. Walker, a Wisconsin same-sex marriage case, and Baskin v. Bogan, Indiana's counterpart, was let off the hook, despite same-sex marriage advocates striking the lottery with the panel assignment.
If today's bloodbath is any indication, the Seventh Circuit panel is going to find in favor of gay marriage. Somebody, however, is going to have to find a credible argument to defend other traditional prohibitions against polygamy, marriage of cousins, etc., if those prohibitions have any chance of surviving inevitable challenges in the future.
