Gay marriage and the Bible

I don't plan to weigh in too much on gay marriage beyond the fact that the Bible might not be the best source to quote on marriage being between one man and one woman.  For centuries, polygamy was permissible, and God didn't see fit to smite the polygamists such as Abraham (and Belshazzar and Shaharaim).  It took a while for the present conception of marriage to "evolve" even in scriptural terms  All I am saying is that the Bible might not be the best source when it comes to defining marriage.
