Across America in June, homosexuals gathered in so-called "pride parades." This year, they celebrated the recent Supreme Court decisions regarding the Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8 -- but they’re not the only ones celebrating, WORLD reports. Polygamists are celebrating too. "We're very happy with it," said Joe Darger, a Utah polygamist. "I think [the court] has taken a step in correcting some inequality, and that's certainly something that's going to trickle down and impact us." Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council said: “Proponents of 'plural marriages’ are riding the homosexual movement's wave of success all the way to legitimacy. They're using the same playbook, the same sound bites. ... After all, who are we to say that two or three or nine consenting adults shouldn't be able to make the same commitment? Love is love, right?"
