Law of Unintended Consequences

I have been reading a number of commentaries about the fruits and nuts on the California Supreme Court and their "decision" to make gay marriage legal in Culifornia (as Ahnuld says it).

However, here's an interesting thought that I haven't seen anywhere (of course I may have just missed it). Once society starts down the slippery slope of defining marriage as whatever a particular interest group with a loud-enough lawyer and PR machine says is should be instead of what natural law, common sense and the teachings of Christ and his Church, to wit:

Catechism of the Catholic Church
Part II, Section Two, Chapter 3
1660 The marriage covenant, by which a man and a woman form with each other an intimate communion of life and love, has been founded and endowed with its own special laws by the Creator. By its very nature it is ordered to the good of the couple, as well as to the generation and education of children. Christ the Lord raised marriage between the baptized to the dignity of a sacrament (cf. CIC, can. 1055 # 1; cf. GS 48 # 1).

then who can say where it will end. However, I will make a bold prediction, because all actions have unintended consequences. Just as the original Lawrence vs. Texas no doubt has influenced the current thinking in the gay community on how to further the cause of "gay marriage", any ruling allowing gay marriage will open the door to anyone who wishes to define marriage to suit their purpose.

You can bet that "gay rights" organizations and their legacy media outlets will pull out all the stops to defeat the initiative to amend the California constitutions, and if they are successful, it's only a matter of time before it makes its way to the U.S. Supreme Court and if, God forbid, Hillary or Obama has nominated a couple of judges, it will be the law of the land, you can bet your money on it. Just as the abortion lobby did, the hard core "gay rights" activists will want to ensure that the decision on gay marriage is removed from state control and passed into federal hands.

SOOOO, I predict that within 5 years of a gay marriage decision by a liberal Supreme Court (an unpleasant but all to real possibility), we will see polygamy legalized and maybe even 'group' marriage by the end of the next decade. Call me crazy, but I can see it coming, after all, was it so far a reach from abortion to assisted suicide?

Just another sign post on the highway to hell.
