NOM’s Bishop: ‘Polygamy Will Automatically Sweep The Land’ If SCOTUS Allows Gay Marriage

Post image for NOM’s Bishop: ‘Polygamy Will Automatically Sweep The Land’ If SCOTUS Allows Gay Marriage

Bishop Harry Jackson says that if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage, polygamy and “many other forms of marriage” will immediately follow.

“If same-sex marriage is allowed to be mandated by fiat,” Jackson claims, “then right behind it, polygamy and many other forms of marriage will automatically sweep the land within just a matter of a few years.”

READ: Speakers At NOM Supreme Court Marriage Hate Rally Actually Just NOM Paid Spokespeople

Of course, that’s flat out false, but not the first time Bishop Harry Jackson — who gets paid by NOM, the National Organization For Marriage — has twisted truth to denigrate same-sex marriage and its “effects.”

 

Of course, Bishop jackson also lied when he spoke at NOM’s anti-gay hate rally on Tuesday in Washington, D.C., as Aviva Shen at Think Progress reported:

Jackson claimed that “urban America” could be “healed” by promoting heterosexual marriages because, he alleges, heterosexual marriages have less poverty, less domestic violence, and “sexual abuse does not happen.”

Shen offers this transcript and video:

“God has given us a blueprint for how to have success in the earthly realm. He’s given us an architectural plan of how to heal the barren places in urban America. He says that marriage between a man and a woman will heal the desert places in urban America. Ghettos will be revitalized if one man, one woman families are the order of the day. When a man and a woman are in the house, poverty is lessened. When a man and a woman are in the house, kids don’t go to prison. When a man and a woman are in the house, there’s less domestic violence. When a man and a woman are in the house, sexual abuse does not happen.”

How do you "know" its flat out false?

usorthem3 March 28, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Reality, what a concept. If it were true then why haven't they been fighting for divorce to be illegal? No domestic abuse when there is a mom and dad at home? Yea right. How much does NOM pay you to comment?

If and when you make an intelligent statement or ask an intelligent question, I will respond,

He reminds me of that black bisshop in Atlanta who paid off molested children to the tune of 4 million $$$

Easy, its called statistics and common sense. If traditional marriage was really going to save "urban America," it would already be doing so. But here is the common sense part, you already have traditional marriage. And its not working. No one is saying get rid of it, they just want to open up options for those who are not heterosexual, which is something those people have no control over. It is silly to tell someone their marriage counts in one state but not another. The federal government should recognize all marriages the same, and that's what the LGBT community is asking for. Equal treatment. This country has been through this before… slavery, interracial marriage, segregation. Anyone who can't see this has serious mental problems. And unfortunately, a lot of people do.

Statistics and common sense…….yes…….a fact……..no!

We cannot just invent whatever argument we want to prove we are right! We cannot say it is flat out false because until the inevitable happens, and we win this thing, we will not know what happens after!

Unless you guys have a Delorien stashed away somewhere, or are secretly psychic and you arent sharing?

Empirically we know that when countries and/or states eliminate sexual orientation apartheid in marriage law, "polygamy and many other forms of marriage" do not "automatically sweep the land in just a few years." Jackson is talking as though there were demonstrated causality between eliminating sexual orientation apartheid in marriage law, and "automatic" polygamy "in just a few years." We do scientifically know that same-sex unions do not "automatically" cause polygamy "in just a few years."

colonelkira March 29, 2013 at 9:39 am

You have a basis for supposition and probability I agree, however you cannot simply assume you know to a degree of certainty whst WILL happen. That is my point.

Scott_Rose March 29, 2013 at 10:01 am

Why don't you go tell that to Jackson, who asserted that eliminating sexual orientation apartheid in marriage would AUTOMATICALLY result in polygamy and many other forms of marriage "sweeping the country" in just a few years? If you understand what the word "automatic" means, then you understand that Jackson has simply assumed he knows to a degree of certainty what WILL happen, when in fact, he does not. The point that you so fatuously have made against us in support of Jackson's ludicrous statement, applies to Jackson's ludicrous statement.

colonelkira March 29, 2013 at 10:10 am

Well of course it applies to him as well!

My point is simple. He is a complete moron and we must not stoop to the EXACT SAME METHODS as him. and our other opponents do, as we are in a position to know better.

The fact that you, in any way shape or form think I support his statement just goes to show how unable to comprehend just how much damage you are doing to our cause. You can keep on deluding yourself that you are helping, you are not. You are the kind of person that makes us look weak, foolish, stupid and unable to ACCURATELY respond to this kind of idiot with facts.

Why should I care if multiple people who are consenting adults want to establish a polygamous (or polyandrous) household?

Ain't none o my biz!

Scott_Rose March 29, 2013 at 10:30 am

You are hoist on your own petard. You asked how the writer of the post knows that Jackson is flat-out wrong, and you were given a correct answer.

colonelkira March 29, 2013 at 10:37 am

Yeah……you keep on telling yourself that! My grandfather had an expression……never try to reason with an unreasonable person…….never thought I would see the day when he was proven right by a member of my own community.

Truly sad days are upon us.
