Do you notice that from a decision that is over 100 pages in length, you can find one sentence in passing that supports your absurd notion?
One could almost draw the conclusion that this was not the main thrust of the courts ruling, and that it was in fact little more than a passing mention. None of which negates the simple fact that the court held against Reynolds, and the decision has not been reversed.
Even you must be smart enough to see that the court seems to think that the issue of polygamy poses a substantially differing set of legal issues than interracial marriage, or same sex marriage, which is why the court addresses these issues separately, instead of making sweeping changes to existing law and jurisprudence.
Quit being an idiot and come back to the topic at hand, Frankie. If you are able.
Long winded lame dodge. If the reason polygamy is illegal is not moral disapproval "odious", what is it?

Frankie, it was neither long winded, nor was it a dodge. You are arguing irrelevant drivel, likely because you are too stupid to see that it is irrelevant.

Learn to count, Frankie.

Frankie, that is one sentence out of over 100 pages. Were you not an imbecile, you would realize that this is not the foundation of the decision, and that it is in fact little more than a passing mention.

The end reality remains, the decision goes against your position, and has not been overturned. What is more, the court has ruled on many other marriage cases without disrupting the existing jurisprudence regarding polygamy.

If you could count, you would realize how irrelevant and idiotic your arguments are.

Did you have anything to say about the topic at hand? If not, I am done participating in your idiotic and irrelevant obfuscations. Troll on, moron. Oh, and learn to count.

Some one who insists "you can't count" is a legitimate reason to deny marriage equality tells me I am idiotic. Too funny!

You're an idiot and a game player.

I never mentioned a post dipshit.

Fact is if I was a God fearing Christian I couldn't open a business given the fear I'd have over offending some queer who'd manipulate a law made for real discrimination should I not bake some gay couple a cake or tell them as a photographer I could not take a picture of the both of them in the nude rubbing on each other over fear I'd get sued - and they might win.

Whining??? You mean like gays do daily???

LOL!!

It's common knowledge and proven in court that Sandusky was a pedophile, not a "homosexual pedophile" nor a "heterosexual pedophile", just a pedophile.

The spin is when you put the "heterosexual" label on him.

The reason is that (1) Enforcing the rules that govern polygamy as it's practiced in the world today as well as historically would be inherently unequal to different members of the polygamous group, thus violating the constitution; and (2) Nobody has ever put forth a list of changes to existing marriage law that would support polygamous marriages.

Until you put forth the changes that you would like to make, expect to be ignored. It's not our place to decide on the changes that you would like to live by.

Frankie finally puts forth a valid claim. Let's ignore his irrelevant BS. Anyone too stupid to count to three, or understand that three or more is greater than two isn't worth debating anyway. Responding to him just rewards their idiotic tactic of obfuscating the thread.

Still using that? Using your lack of logic, a husband and wife couldn't have children because they would then become more than 2. Can't be giving those families all those 'greater protections.' You're dumber than a shoe.

What you posted is ridiculous......lides was discussing multiple adults with regards to marriage and you bring children into the discussion which is NOT the same....why?

To Catch A Predator
That was the show. In one segment they caught a Rabbi wanting to have sex with a little BOY.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
I've seen that show, not that particular episode. Did you know that TWICE as many young girls are molested as young boys??? All by grown MEN. Does that tell you anything, anything at all?

Perhaps you think a 55 year old man arranging for sex with a 14 year old girl is just a normal "heterosexual" encounter.

Pedophiles are pedophiles, they are attracted to underage CHILDREN. Period. Adults with other consenting adults is fine by me....as long as no one gets hurt. CHILDREN of both genders get hurt and two thirds of them are girls. Pedophilia has nothing to do with the normal attraction between adults.

Pedophilia is in a class by itself and it is a crime. ALWAYS.

If you want to call someone screaming "you can't count!" a rational discussion.

It's the same as some moron screaming "you can't tell a man from a woman!" as a rational discussion against SSM.

"Let's ignore Frankie" lides proposed, as a dodge because he had no argument.

Run to the video store and buy all the "Leave It To Beaver" episodes you can. Also, you can look for "Lassie" and "Father Knows Best." That should keep you well grounded in your delusional world;0)

Let's not forget the children in orphanages, foster homes and (horror) on the streets that would love to have a stable home without abuse and negligence. Those that just wish someone would care.
