It's not called 'straight' marriage now is it????
Just like it's NOT called "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" Marriage......it's just called "MARRIAGE" regardless of who marries who!!!!

The media referred to it as "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" Marriage, but in reality....NO "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" marriage licenses have EVER been issued!!!

When my wife and I got married......they did not HAND us a SPECIAL license application just for "GAY" or "LESBIAN" couples......every California couple that got married when we did.....ALL got issued the same type of Marriage License!!!

You aren't actually suggesting that people argued against interracial marriage for fear of approving of ssm, polygamy and incest marriages??? Are you??? Even 'that' goes to far for liberal lies....
That's EXACTLY what happened when they were legalizing interracial marriages. The whole "slippery slope" argument, complete with fears of polygamy and incest, were used during the Loving case to try and stop interracial marriages.

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/... gives direct examples.

Fool, why do you bother with your lies when they are so easy to refute?

Sorry, but the Supreme Court is ONLY referencing what the proponents have called it!!!

The media is calling it what it wants to make it more of an issue than it should be!!!

Just like you stated.....NO STRAIGHT MARRIAGE and if there is NO STRAIGHT MARRIAGE.....then there is NO "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" Marriage either.....just marriage!!!!

And STOP calling everyone a liar just because you don't agree with them......dumbazz!!!

They didn't come forward because they had sense enough to realize this legislation had NOTHING to do with them, and that no one was worried that interracial marriages would be a gateway for them..as we knew ssm would be for polygamy....

Wow, why do you lie so much? The right to marry for Gay and Lesbian couples HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH POLYGAMY OR THEIR FIGHT and they could have made their fight known a long time ago!!!

Actually..traditional marriage had no restrictions for sexuality..it is you all that brought sexuality in marriage to the forefront...

You are lying if you are saying this is not a 'gay' thing...not one time have your lawyers stood up and said 'hey, it's a good thing for heterosexuals that want to marry as well'....

O.... M.... G.... Are you STILL trying to prop up your insane "marriage equality will lead to legalized polygamy" fantasy???

Seriously, dude. How many times does it have to be explained to you?? They're different entities with vastly and radically different legal requirements.

One will not lead to the other any more than the crazy claim that all straight people will suddenly and inexplicable all stop having sex, stop having children, and we'll all be dead in 20 years.

Is your life really so boring that you're entertained by continuing to dance this ridiculous dance?

Lie. The pathetic attempt to claim "if gay people are allowed to marry, people will want to marry 7 people! And their sister!! and their cat!!!" has been part of this argument for ages.

And it's been PROVEN false.

The two have nothing whatsoever to do with one another. Support multiple spouses, oppose it, I don't care. It has NOTHING to do with this issue at all.

Justice brings up polygamy in Prop 8 gay marriage case

Washington • If gay marriage is legal, what about polygamy?

It’s a long-debated political question, one that surfaced in Tuesday’s Supreme Court hearing on California’s gay marriage ban, known as Proposition 8.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor brought it up while questioning former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson, a Republican who argued that gay marriage is an individual right and should be protected by the Constitution.

"If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what state restrictions could ever exist?" Sotomayor asked before referencing polygamy and incest among adults.

Olson responded by saying that polygamy raises questions "about exploitation, abuse, patriarchy, issues with respect to taxes, inheritance, child custody — it is an entirely different thing."

"If a state prohibits polygamy," he said, "it’s prohibiting conduct. If it prohibits gay and lesbian citizens from getting married, it is prohibiting their exercise of a right based upon their status."

At one time, the Utah-based LDS Church practiced polygamy, which it renounced in 1890. The faith’s leaders directed members to support Prop 8 in 2008 and signed on to a friend-of-the-court brief asking the Supreme Court to leave same-sex marriage to state legislatures and Congress.

Wonder what made her go there during this case???

How is sexuality brought into marriage just because Gays and Lesbians want to get married to someone of the Same-Sex?

Why would Olson and Boies need to stand up and say that it's a good thing for Straights to marry when they already have that right?

Ummmmm...what???

Correction...we ALL already have that right, regardless of sexuality...it's you all that have brought sexuality into the instituition...not us...
