James Taranto Hates Poly Amorous People

From yesterday's Best of the Web, while discussing the polygamy brought up in regards to the Mormon ancestors of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney:

Now, this column yields to no one in our repugnance to polygamy. The Supreme Court held in 1890, "The organization of a community for the spread and practice of polygamy is, in a measure, a return to barbarism," and who are we to disagree?

Some people say the same thing about gay marriage today and people said the same sorts of things about interracial marriage a generation ago. It's just as bigoted today.
