Actually, many people exist who have never spawned.
Really????!!!!

Here is school for the day;

1. Every person who exists was spawned. No exceptions.

2. Marriage is the natural and best place for humans to spawn when they are ready and if they can. That is why marriage is a unique relationship, distinct from contracts and friendships.

3. No gay couple has ever pro-spawned. Zero. Ever. Anywhere.

Ten years ago there wasn't a reality show about a polygamous family, now there's two.
Just like the Duggars begat the Bateses, the Brown family of TLCís Sister Wives has begat the Dargers. It seems like once every TLC reality show starts to get a little stale or repetitive the producers bring in another family for their stars to hang out with. Recently, the Dargers were featured on Sister Wives as a fellow polygamous family. On the show, we met husband Joe and wives Alina, Vicki, and Valerie.

So far 32 states say otherwise. Perhaps we could annex Canada, to even out the numbers for ya.
Some of the same countries that have legal ssm, also have polygamist communities. The Brits already recognize foreign poly marriages for welfare bennies. The polys are right there with ya, Big D, as in de-nigh-yal
Used to be 50, now it is 32 and droppiing

There is no way to spin that you way

Yes he is using it as the standard diversionary tactic used by most opposed to same sex marriage, which is why most of us donít believe him when he says he is for it.
No one has been able to come up with any valid reason not to allow same sex marriage, not even in court, that is why you are losing court battle after court battle.
So they go after the bait and switch diversionary tactic.
It will still fail of course, justice will win and you will lose.
It is already legal in a growing number of states and countries, you are on the wrong side of history.
"Most of us"? Do you have a few mice in your pocket? Who is "most of us"?

What a jackass!

Just the fact that there is no such thing as ssm.

Unmarriage, gay partners, but not marriage.

Even a child knows the difference.

Let's put Big D's and Jazybird's petty personal attack nonsense aside for a moment and get back on topic.

By what logic do you insist on the traditional, arbitrary and discriminatory number of two?

Yeah, Jazybird is a lost cause. I agree. Don't bother trying.

But lets put your silly personal attack nonsense aside for a few minutes.

Why is the gender part of "one man one woman" irrelevant but the number part still relevant?

LOL

But it is, we have people telling others to stay on topic that never do themselves, this is exactly like kindergarten behavior.

You didnít understand what he was saying, you didnít understand my response

You donít have a clue what others are saying... you donít have enough information to be a part of the conversation.

You are like a little kid in the back seat that only gets about every 5th word said

Like I said. Bullshit.

Now tell me what is so inviolate as the number two? Why is gender irrelevant but number still relevant?
