"Bingo"! Such genius! Teach that idiot Jizzy how to troll. Please! He's so bad at it he thinks he's not a troll. You're not real good at it either with stuff like your "bingo" troll, but better than that dopey Jizzy.

You give him too much credit, I donít think he gives a single crap. His only interest in Poly, is how he can use it to attack those in favor of same sex marriage, he is using those people, and will toss them in the garbage when he is done with them

Overturning prop 8 will make one less pesky law against poly. And that fact just chaps your ass!

Dear SSMers

I am puzzled by your attitudes regarding legal polygamy/plural marriage. They seem to range from outright hostility to tepid support. "Marriage equality" is the mantra of the movement, yet there is a strong reluctance to include polygamy. Why? A seldom mentioned yet obvious objective within the movement is to shatter the monogamous conjugal (husband and wife) marital standard forever. To fundamental alter the very legal concept as a unique privileged union of one man and one woman as husband and wife. It stands to reason once that's changed, ssm is not the only logical path.

Polygamy is a valid form of marriage throughout time and place, far, far older than SSM, and more widely practiced. Why shouldn't it be considered? Is there a fear that to embrace it would undermine the SSM movement? A reluctance to share the spotlight? A sense of superiority?

I don't want to do those things, I simply want to discuss marriage equality.

If I were inclined to go out and gather signatures and hire lawyers, it would be to get rid of cowards like you who disrespect disabled veterans simply for the sake of trying insult one on a silly topix thread.

Funny stuff! But not homophobic. I like gay people! Looks like fun. Except for the sex part. For that I like HOT CHICKS!

I'm sure folks will enjoy the Jizzy war stories on that thread.

Loosen up Fruitloops! You're all mad and sh!t.

All trolling aside. I support gay rights. And poly rights. You, not so much.

Yes there is! Just evidence the hostility against me for supporting poly. They get so frustrated and angry with me, but it's on them. I'm simply the messenger, don't shoot the messenger. But if you support same sex marriage and you do not support poly marriage you are a hypocrite. I make 'em see their own hypocrisy. It enrages them.

I truly support all marriages. Marriage is good for society. If we allow some people only to marry and not other (unpopular) people, it's not as Big D would say "Truth justice and the American way!"

They just know why you are bringing it up, Prop 8 has no effect on polygamy, as illegal before Prop 8 and during Prop 8 and will still be illegal after Prop 8 is overturned.

I would vote in favor of polygamy myself, because I donít see a valid reason why a government should be involved other than the keeper of the legal contract.

The only fear you generate with the Poly arguments are the religious nut jobs ( your constituency ) not anyone else. Your problem is that your constituency is already in the minority and already opposed to same sex marriage, scaring them will get you nowhere but having them scream more fanatically which just turns more people away from them.

It is a dead end argument that frightens no one that you hope it will
