Not to three shalt thou count

BBC reports:

A notary in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo has sparked controversy by accepting a civil union between three people.

The anti-gay right loves to go crazy over this sort of thing. But the fact is that there is no significant movement demanding polygamy. Our opponents essentially argue that making any change requires making every conceivable change, but that is plainly absurd. Legislatures make choices all the time. They adopt one policy and reject various others. They insert particular clauses and delete others. Allowing gay and lesbian couples to legalize their partnerships or unions or marriages does not require making other changes. It makes no more sense to say "We cannot let you marry a man because we don't want you to marry a box turtle" than to say "You cannot eat ice cream because we don't want you eating deadly nightshade." But I don't want to eat deadly nightshade.

Glad I was able to clear that up.
