French cardinal warns: polygamy, incest could follow legalization of same-sex marriage

Warning that the legalization of same-sex marriage would manifest a "breakdown in society," Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon predicted that polygamy and incest could eventually be legalized—leading to criticism from the openly homosexual mayor of Paris.

"This could have innumerable consequences," said Cardinal Barbarin. "Afterward they will want to create couples with three or four members. And after that, perhaps one day the taboo of incest will fall."

"It is very shocking and even surprising coming from him, because he is someone I consider a wise man," said Mayor Bertrand Delanoë. "I don't know what came over him, he flipped his lid a little bit and what he said was downright ugly."
