The Family Research Council dissects a piece from Slate, highlighting just how dangerous marriage equality will be for our society:
The slippery slope on marriage isn’t coming–it’s here. In a piece so shocking it landed on Drudge Report, Slate columnist Jillian Keenan comes clean on the fact that homosexual “marriage” is just the warm-up act to an even more shocking agenda. “Let’s not forget that the fight doesn’t end with same-sex marriage,” she writes. “We need to legalize polygamy too. Legalized polygamy in the United States is the constitutional, feminist, and sex-positive choice. More importantly, it would actually help protect, empower, and strengthen women, children, and families.”

But there’s more.
They go on to look at the prospective rebranding of the Republican party:
The Republican Party can rebrand itself without redefining itself. That was the overwhelming opinion of the Republican National Committee members, who voted late last week to reject the RNC’s “softer” tone on social issues. By a unanimous vote, the members of the RNC reaffirmed the pro-family planks of the GOP platform. We “can certainly be welcoming without compromising on marriage and the definition of marriage,” said A.J. Spiker, chairman of the Iowa Republican Party. We commend the RNC for maintaining its opposition to same-sex “marriage,” and passing similar resolutions in favor of California’s Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act–both of which are currently before the Supreme Court.
For now, conservatives will have to wait and see if the GOP Leadership, which is dominated by Establishment Republicans, also steps back from the brink of political irrelevance and affirms its support for the consensus priorities of Republican voters. Until they show their unequivocal support, I encourage you to give directly to solid conservative candidates vetted by organizations like FRC Action. Another place to send money is your state party, if it’s on the right track.
