Gay marriage and polygamy

Recliner Commentaries once argued that if gay marriage became legal, it would open the doors to all kinds of other "alternative lifestyles" as well. A recent public opinion poll seems to support that argument:

A full 22 percent of the respondents say there is no legal justification for denying polygamy, based on the fact that legislation and judicial decisions have affirmed the validity of same-sex “marriage” for homosexuals.
Another 18.7 percent were uncertain.
 Further, 18 percent of the respondents said there was no moral justification for denying polygamy, and 14.5 percent were uncertain.
I could be wrong, but I seem to recall someone responding to Recliner Commentaries denying this would ever happen.

What few seem concerned about these new social experiments is the potential impact on the children who will be raised in these "alternative lifestyles."
