And no one gay or straight, man or woman, wants to marry Rose_NoHo!
Did you notice she posts about some new imaginary boyfriend? Wonder what happened to her old imaginary boyfriend. Probably turned out to be an imaginary jerk.
I imagine that the batteries ran out, and it has to wait until the beginning of the month, for some new battery money...

That's a really well thought out response.
To be perfectly frank, it was a simple response. If it seems well thought out, to you, then the world must seem very complicated, to you...

<quoted text>Hell no. It's a rationalization, not logical reasoning.
There are too many steps in between to claim it logically follows.
It is utterly logical for polygamy rights to follow gay rights.

If traditional marriage is defined as the union of two people of opposite gender, and if the gender requirement is nothing but prejudice, exclusion and an arbitrary denial of one's autonomous choices, then the number requirement (two and only two), is a similarly arbitrary, discriminatory and indefensible denial of individual choice.

I do agree that the decline in religion in America will probably make this a non-issue, there are no groups bringing this up an issue, just one idiot on an internet forum.
I have not stated an opinion other than I don’t really care… neither do most people, it just is not an issue.
Please stay on topic
To most people, SSM isn't an issue, either. But there is a lot of propaganda claiming that we support it. SSM is an issue being forced into the world by a few spoiled libertines, making it an issue. Polygamy is just as relevant as SSM, because it centers around the issue of governmentally forced definitions of what constitutes a marriage. So is incest. Personally, I support none of the aforementioned types of marriages, but if we must allow the government to force us to accept "equality" in marriages, then we cannot avoid the issue of polygamy or incest. All or nothing. Simple.

Sad story. Hope the murderer is put in jail for life.
You spend a lot of time typing "transgender man pants down" into search engines?
That's a lie. We both know that you have claimed to be afraid to put your ugly mug up for fear of the "violent, racist, hating fundies". Do not be so insane as to deny your previous posts.

I am on topic. You're not.
The topic is marriage equality. It applies to poly too even though you don't want it to.
You wish to deny rights to poly but you cannot say that without revealing your hypocrisy, so you whine that it's off topic and say you don't care about poly marriage rights. Yet you care about same sex marriage rights.
Yet your constant harping on religion like some crazed fundie is somehow supposed to be on topic.
He is so badly programmed to be contrary that you could grab him by the hair, slam his face into a wall, and tell him "that just sucked for you" and he'd deny it....

You're stupid. It's not a matter of "all or nothing". You're engaging in a slippery slope fallacy.
And nobody can force you to accept anything, bigfoot.

LOL! You are calling someone else ugly!? Damn, you hardly look human.
And I do fear that I'd risk my life if I put a pic of my face up, because fundies are violent, hateful and racist. That doesn't mean they are the only people who ever commit violent crimes. Now go back to typing "pants down" into search engines.

My $.02, absolutely gays and lesbians should be allowed to legally marry....I'm surprised that we even still debate this.

Why should hetrosexuals like myself be allowed to be legally abused by a spouse but not gays and lesbians?

Dammit, they deserve to be miserable just like the rest of us!

When I lived in Minneapolis, my ex-wife and I were close friends with a gay couple. While my ex was secretly opening up accounts using my social, draining our bank accounts and racking up over $70k in credit card debt....in my name not hers.....LEGALLY....this nice couple was denied the right to legally ruin each other. It's not right. We all deserve the same freedoms!

I'm a rather conservative military veteran, but when it comes to marital rights for gays and lesbians....seriously.....what century are we living in that the government can decide who should be together and who shouldn't? Rediculous.

When it comes to special employment rights based on sexual preference (and I believe that it's preference not genetic) then I feel differently. I can't get a job just because I'm NOT gay or lesbian....so I shouldn't be entitled to one because I AM (if I were).

Marriage....and the right to legally have life insurance policies, etc. as a result of being legally married is absolutely something that should not even be debated.....all couples, regardless of gender should be able to 'enjoy' marriage, if there is such a thing.

ME? I would never ever again even consider marriage. It's rather stupid once you've married SATAN as I did, but I absolutely would defend to the death anyone's right to be married.

You want a legal gun pointed at your head? I say go for it.....everyone. It's not just for straight people.

Oh and by the way.....multiple spouses? WHY THE HELL NOT?

The only thing worse than one wife is several....but if a man is stupid enough to legally obligate himself the let the poor bastard do it!(or a woman with multiple men, for that matter)

Do you know what the punishment is for having multiple wives? It's the multiple wives!

THE SHORTEST FAIRY TALE

One day an atractive young man asked a beautiful woman to marry him, but she said no.

And he lived happily ever after.

Agree. Polygamy if legal will be relatively rare and self limiting.

The problem we have here is that same sex marriage supporters on this thread seem to think polygamy rights are some sort of trick to deprive them of their rights, as if there are only so many rights to go around and they want them all!

The slippery slope is not a reason to deny same sex marriage, but it is not a fallacy.

You would do well to be smart and honest, instead of pig headedly stubborn, nasty, dishonest, mean and stupid! But that's our Rose_NoHo!

Mother Nature speaks to us in many ways. Sadly many humans do not listen and so she reacts accordingly.
Fate
Oy

Obama is an idiot
Biden is an idiot
Gore is an idiot
Clinton is an idiot
Bush is an idiot
They're all idiots

End the fed
Abolish the tax code

Obama is the ceo for corporate america and the united states of israelity.
We were sold out so now they wish to "legalize" 11 million criminals as replacements.
Both parties do.
High Treason right there!

Yeah he's stubborn. He's also a dishonest little sh!t. That's the part I don't like most.

And he's from Modesto. A dusty little sh!thole in the San Joaquin Valley. Let me sum up it's description by saying if you wanted to give California an enema, Modesto is where you'd stick the hose!
