You wish to deny polygamists the right to marry. You have stated they are not worthy. Remember? "What about the children!"
And besides, you cannot hide your hostility to poly. Or by association to me. It drips from your every post about it.
You are against equal protection and you are very paranoid. You think I'm trying to trick you. You're insane.
So far no one cares enough about Poly ( including you ) to do the legwork to get things started, it is nothing but a poly for your hostility to supporters of Same Sex Marriage

It wonít work of course, Same sex marriage will continue to expand across states and nations.

Your tired old "no one cares" argument. You have repeated it at least 20 times. You are every wrong. People do care. You are ignorant, not my problem. Don't use it as an argument though. That's stupid.

You are just plain wrong and too bullheaded to learn. Either that or your "not enough people want it" schtick is a straw man.

Which is it?

Stop lying and acting like I'm against SSM. You know that's not true.

Same old schtick.

You can talk of travel to Mars without actually traveling to Mars. I can talk about rights for poly without actively going out in the streets for it. And besides, I am doing something about it, I'm arguing with bigots and idiots.

You don't care enough to do anything about SSM. Do I use that against you when you discuss SSM?

Same old tired schtick over and over again, And then again. like it's going to work one if these times! I won't it's stupid and no argument against equal rights at all.

What a jackass.

Really Big D? You seem like a reasonable....fella? Anyway...every victory for SSM is also a victory for plural marriage. The standard's been changed.

according to you

but SSM was legal in California before prop 8, not poly

SSM is legal in some 10 states now, and DC, is poly?

SSM has had a LOT of victories lately

How many has Poly had?

You are under the delusion that one goes hand in hand with the other. Not at all true, and you are failing to frighten anyone with that crap.

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on mating behavior.
What does that mean in part?
It means you are an idiot.

You have two sets.
Do you think you should have been aborted?

along to as many as possible. Marriage actually constrains the evolutionary desire for numerous mates, and requires the male care for their offspring and support the mother.
What you actually point out is clear evidence that homosexuality is a genetic DEFECT.

Moreover, homosexuality is a far more promiscuous orientation than heterosexuality.
Smile.
Speaking of genetic DEFECTS, do you think chimeras should be aborted?

OK I'll go along with your stupid straw man argument for a moment and humor you.

Let's say only 3 people in the whole world want a poly marriage. Is that a reason to deny poly marriage?

HOW MANY PEOPLE WANT IT IS IRRELEVANT.

It will immediately follow any legalization of ss 'marriage', along with a host of other issues. Oh, and distainingly calling it the 'slippery slope' argument doesn't change it's validity.
Already, the extension of spouse benefits in the military to gay couples has caused a legitimate claim of discrimination by heterosexual couples living together outside of marriage.
The fact is, if committed relationship of any gender is redefined as marriage, the number certainly must also be designated as discrimination. A fundamental reason marriage constrained gender and number was this; A child has one mother and one father. Never any more or less.
Smile.
You think our rights should depend on our genes.
Should you be allowed to marry? Do you think you should have been aborted? You are kind of worthless.

There is an arcahic 100+ year old federal law against poly. That's based on hatred and prejudice and should be gone.

Then it will be just like SSM. Up to the states. Good thing PROP 8 is being struck down because it won't stand in the way of poly in CA.

And there's your topic.

Actually Rosie we weren't. First, not every racial combination was prohibited, only certain ones. It wasn't applied equally. Second, who or what determined "race"?. Third, there are numerous races/ethnic groups, but only two sexes. Lastly, how is a person who is half of one and half of another classified in terms of who they can marry?

You are pretty stupid. I should have figured the point would go ever your head.

No, it's not. Gay marriages are happening in several states and countries.

True, its as old as monogamous marriage.
Typical fundie, so stupid you don't know the difference between "its" and "it's". A typo is one thing, you folks just don't know the difference.

Frankie Rizzo is just a troll who is against gay marriage pretending to be in favor of it. He keeps flooding the forum with posts about red herrings, like polygamy, because he doesn't have a real argument against gay marriage. And he is so dumb, he thinks the term "red herring" means a fish.

Ohhhhh.....so the "D" stands for denial? What frighten? Why would it matter to you if plural marriage in some form was given legal recognition? Would it crash your Big Fat Gay Wedding?
