Carson: Gay Marriage Will Lead to Polygamy

The Supreme Court, by approving gay marriage, has opened the door to the legalization of polygamy, according to Ben Carson.

The retired neurosurgeon, who is locked in a virtual tie with Donald Trump in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, made the controversial allegation last week. According to MSNBC, he declared that if the country refuses to follow the “word of God,” it might as well “toss the whole thing in the garbage.”

“If you change the definition of marriage for one group, what defense do you have for the next group that comes along and wants it changed?” Carson asked Eric Metaxas, the host of a conservative radio show. “Can you say, ‘oh no, we’re just changing it for one group and it’ll be this way forever?’ How is that fair? It just doesn’t make sense.”

The candidate suggested that polygamy is “the natural next question, and on it goes from there.” MSNBC reported that he previously linked homosexuality with pedophilia and bestiality. During a 2013 interview on Fox News, Carson said: “My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality. It doesn’t matter what they are. They don’t get to change the definition.”
