Letter: Ruling on same-sex marriage should legalize polygamy
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

If U. S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby's ruling is upheld and Utah's gay marriage ban indeed violates gay's right to due process and equal protection, then using his exact same logic, rationale and wording, there can be no ban on polygamy either ("After same-sex marriage ruling, Utah seeks to keep status quo," Tribune, Dec. 21). Isn't that true?

Legally, what difference is there? The rights of any three people are no less than the rights of any two people.
