Colombia: 3 Men Marry Each Other, Demonstrating the Slippery Slope of Morals

Society can’t deny that there is slippery slope when it comes to sex and the changing ideas about biblical standards, Michael Brown, host of the Line of Fire radio program, writes in a column for Charisma News.

“It's becoming increasingly difficult to deny the reality of the slippery slope,” he writes. “The logical next step is to affirm it.”

Brown’s column comes in response to a Colombian marriage of three men—a polyamorous “family.” Colombia legalized same-sex marriage in 2016 and polyamorous marriage this year.

"'We wanted to validate our household... and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,' said one of the men in a video published by Colombian media this week.

Brown says an example of that “slippery slope” here in the Unites States would be when a lesbian couple with a child has the help of another man, “all three of whom become parents,” the Associated Press said.

He says that the Human Rights Campaign once argued to remove “transgender” from its campaign to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. In New York you can now be fined for not accepting the stated identity of a transgendered employee. That slippery slope has now gone to Canada, where a bill allows its citizens to use whatever pronouns they want.

“"Refer to me as ze and zir rather than he or her,” Brown writes.

“And (they say) there is no slippery slope,” he writes.
