'Polyamorists' Call for Group Marriage

As gay activists take aim at marriage across the country, other groups are raising their voices in the battle to redefine marriage.
Polyamorists claim there’s no reason to confine a marriage to two people and are calling for "equal marriage rights."
Glenn Stanton, director of family formation studies at Focus on the Family, talked about the issue on "Fox & Friends" today.

“We had warned that same-sex 'marriage' would be a wedge to drive through a whole bunch of stuff," he said. "And it hasn’t taken very long for the polyamory people to come along and say, ‘Hey, they got their rights. They got their benefits. Why can’t we have ours?' ”

Dave Quist, executive director of the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada, said cohabitation and the legalization of same-sex "marriage" in his country have eroded marriage.
“As it collapses, our children see that marriage is something very different than what it should be," he said. "And the effect on succeeding generations is very sad.”
