Enemies of Marriage

Lest you think that modern liberals were the first to attack the sanctity of marriage, I’d like you to note this particularly pernicious precursor.

“My personal opinion is that it would be a natural development for us to break with monogamy…Marriage laws are in themselves immoral…With bigamy, each wife would act as a stimulus to the other so that both would try to be their husband’s dream woman -- no more untidy hair, no more slovenliness.”

Sounds like something you’d hear from one of the free-thinkers of the press, academia, or Hollywood, right? However, the quotation actually comes from Heinrich Himmler, the Nazi Reichsführer of the SS -- the murderer, adulterer, and right hand thug of Adolf Hitler? You see, declaring yourself an enemy of natural marriage doesn’t make you part of the progressive future. It makes you part of the pagan past.
