Move Over Gay Marriage — Here Come the Throuples

Those who hold to the historical and traditional view of marriage as between one man and one woman have long warned that if homosexual marriage is permitted, it will only be the beginning of the end of the very definition of marriage. Now, it seems like those predictions are coming true.
A new arrangement masquerading as marriage has recently emerged.  Christian News Network reports:
Photos of three Thai men who recently ‘married’ each other have gone viral, garnering societal support for the concept of same-sex “throuples” worldwide, but also generating remarks from Christians about the confirmation of the slippery slope that has long been predicted.

Yes, that’s right, now three people can apparently claim to be in a three person marriage.  But, this is not the first time this has happened. 

As previously reported, last May, three women in Massachusetts exchanged vows as they claimed to be the world’s first lesbian “throuple.”
A “slippery slope”?  This is a gaping chasm for society.  First, it was two people of the same sex.  Now it’s three people of the same sex.  Why only three?  Why not seven, fourteen, twenty-four?  After all, as the same sex advocates have chanted for years – love is love.  As Christian News Network explains:
“The events in Thailand simply confirm what we’ve been saying all this time: If marriage is no longer the union of one man and one woman, then it can be anything: Two men, two women, three men, three women, or an almost infinite number of other possibilities,” Dr. Michael Brown wrote for Charisma News.
He noted that the situation demonstrates how mankind has made up its own rules along the way in an attempt to legitimize and justify what a particular person wants. Since homosexuals have stated that marriage should be defined as the union of two people who have feelings for each other, regardless of gender, where does the rule about two people come from?
If there is no standard for marriage, there can be no marriage.  If there is no understanding of the spiritual, historical, and familial understanding of marriage, there can be no marriage; only groups of people choosing to cohabitate.
The devastating effect on children in these unusual arrangements is just now beginning to be seen.  The societal effect will be exponential.  No society has ever long survived without strong nuclear families.  Ours will be no exception.
When Hillary Clinton wrote the book – It Takes A Village – perhaps this is what she had in mind!  The old Hollywood movie – Yours, Mine, and Ours – also can now be seen in a new light.

But, in all seriousness, Dr. Michael Brown concludes:

“Those who have taken down the fence of marriage as God intended it have opened up a Pandora’s Box of possibilities,” he said, “none of them good.”
