so if it was a rhetoric question, why did you chastise those who you felt didn't answer it????
C'mon Frankie boy, try and get your story straight.
BTW Why are you filled with so much anger?
I chastised them because they refuse to get on topic and were just trying to attack me, like you are doing now.

Why are you so angry about me attempting to discuss marriage? Is it just the mention of polygamy that angers you so?

I want you to bring your wife on so we can discuss it with her.
of course you are not actually interested yourself, the slippery slope argument is only made by people trying to influence others to their position.
Want in one hand sh!t in the other, see which one fills up first. Let me know.

If you were better educated and smarter you'd explain how the slippery slope is real but inconsequential and no reason to deny gay marriage like I am trying to do. Instead of tying to bullsh!t us that it is not real or some kind of trick.

again are these rhetorical questions, or are you really interested in answers. Please indicate if your questions are genuine or rhetorical
Please stop dicking around and discuss the topic.

You've tried all your best insults, now it's time for your opinions and thoughts on marriage equality.

not angry just tried of equating same sex marriage and polygamy as the same issue.

they're not. I stated my reasons against polygamy.

marriage is a social contract between two consenting adults. Not granting those legal rights to same sex couples is unconstitutional IMO.
There are a host of legal issues when it comes to multiple adults in one marriage.

I already am better educated and smarter than you Frankie, but that doesnít make me special, just about everyone is.

I am not trying to bulls!it anyone, I am for what I say I am for, I donít use slippery slope arguments to try and derail others. I donít attack people who are for gay marriage, I donít defend those who unreasonably object to it.

You who call everyone names non-stop should not be complaining about people attacking you, it sounds so much like......( drum roll please ) hypocrisy

Look what Big D's nick name should be, the idiotfinder, as he constantly calls everybody stupid.

So who is brighter, me or Frankie, considering you think we are both stupid?

I am not using the slippery slope argument to hurt your feelings. I am trying to tell you how to deal with it. If you would read the excellent paper by the UCLA professor on the slippery slope you would get some great tips on how to deal with it intelligently. By saying yes it is real, but here's why it doesn't matter. Then you be even more educated and smarter!

P.S. Maybe tell the University of CA you don't think I deserve my MS Geology with a 3.8 GPA! They think I'm smart enough for it. Maybe I should get my money back?

Right. Polygamy's too complicated. Maybe we'll get to see how that flies with SCOTUS some day. Is that your whole argument counselor?

No what does your taste like? Salty? I've heard that from women. I have never nor will I ever taste one.

But if you're gay and like to do it, nothing wrong with it! I certainly have no objections! Sex is fun! Enjoy!

You're a useless troll. Be OK if you were the least bit funny, but you're just dumb with no argument.
