What's "true" about it if it excludes certain groups?
Everyone understands marriage is not for children. Even prop 8 said man and woman. That excludes children, Miss Thing. No one is arguing for marriage of children, calm down.

Is that your best argument? It's really desperate.

Yep. That's how bigots roll, they rub defeat in good when they can. Just like they did in the earlier days of SSM.

Let's cut through your bullsh!t. Tell us why you are against poly marriage.

No, do you?
I'll be sure to specify adults more often than I have been in the future so you don't try to use it as an argument against true marriage equality again.
If you are for true equality in marriage, why should 12 year old kids be omitted? It seems that its allowed in other countries that allow polygamy.

Sure, they wanted to make damn sure they weren't legalizing polygamy.
Did you read prop 8?
Hell, did YOU? It nowhere mentions polygamy.

Tell us why you think Prop 8 has anything to do with polygamy, when the California Supreme Court says it does not.

What don't you understand about "Marriage is a man and a woman only"?

Does it say "men and women only"?

I often specify adults. I figured by now it was understood. So sue me.

What don't you understand about: "...does not mean that this constitutional right similarly must be understood to extend to polygamous or incestuous relationships."

When SCOTUS puts this heinous proposition to rest, I hope that lawsuits will be initiated against NOM and Protect Marriage.

Prop 8 says "a man and a woman" only. The CA court wanted to make damn sure repealing it didn't in any way legalize polygamy. And polygamy wasn't the reason for repealing it, same sex marriage was.

This proves my case, that prop 8 excluded polygamists too, or else why would the court even mention it, Miss Thing?

My opinions are not stupid.

You believe same sex marriage should be allowed. I believe same sex marriage and poly marriage should be allowed.

Lets support TRUE marriage equality, Frank. Other countries that support polygamy allow teenagers to be married. So Frank why don't you support 12,13,14 year old kids being married???? Come on Frank In Saudi Arabia, polygamy is legal, and no age restrictions. What could possibly be of harm to society???

Look, dumbass, the Court mentioned it when they granted marriage to gay couples, not about Prop 8. Jesus tap-dancing Christ! You have THE WORST reading comprehension of any Topix poster. I can't believe anyone is this sloppy and stupid.

"We emphasize that our conclusion that the constitutional right to marry properly must be interpreted to apply to gay individuals and gay couples does not mean that this constitutional right similarly must be understood to extend to polygamous or incestuous relationships."

CAN YOU READ??? Let me condense it for you:

...our conclusion.. DOES NOT MEAN.. constitutional right to polygamous relationships.

I want 8 wives, all under the age of 15. Why are you trying to diminish my marriage rights?
