The only double standard exists when heterosexuals want to ban homosexuals from marrying.
It's OK for heterosexuals to marry given it's a basic liberty all American adults should have but not homosexuals albeit they too are American citizens wishing to pursue a freedom which exhibits no harm.
You just got busted son.
Polygamists are "American citizens wishing to pursue a freedom which exhibits no harm" also.

You just got busted son.

What a dope!

Yes Dan, we have all suffered through your posts.
Indeed, they are so dumb.

But that makes them real funny so it's OK.

Why do folks like yourself and AK have such difficulty differentiating between ONE, and TWO, THREE or FOUR?
It hardly seems a mark of great intelligence, since most chdilren learn this in preschool, or even before.
Perhaps using counting sticks, or pennies would help.
One plus one + one = two. One + two (or three, or four) does not = two.
Does that make it a little more clear for you?
Oh boy, now we're getting a smarmy arithmetic lesson! Priceless.

You think it's OK to eliminate the gender requirement in "one man one woman" but not the number requirement. Why? Please explain.

One man one woman. Why do folks like you have such trouble differentiating gender? Most children learn this in school bla bla bla.

Actually, yes you can. Straight people do it every day.
The key is the reasons you are denying those equal rights. Gay folks have already proven, categorically, that our marriages are good for our families, and good for society in general.
Gay folks want the SAME right to marry the adult single non-related person of their choice that straight folks ALREADY have. It's very simple.
And straight religious folks marrying many spouses at one time just doesn't enter into the marriage conversation for most Americans. Americans LOVE to marry multiples - just one at a time.
Do you demand that all of your straight friends, and every heterosexual married couple that you know, support marrying multiple spouses, simply because THEY can marry one at a time? Don't you think they would laugh at you for making such silly and illogical demands?
Of course you don't do that, do you, but you apply that leaky logic ONLY to gay folks.
Polygamy is a separate issue, with it's own arguments, detractors, and problems. If people wish to begin marrying many, then they will go through the appropriate channels, and prove that their marriages are good for their families, and for society, and the laws banning it will change.
If you support polygamy, then speak up. Demanding that other people who do not want to marry more than one spouse at a time support polygamy, simply because they want to marry just ONE person, is just plain silly.
But, I guess it really is all you have left, isn't it? You can't find a single logical or relevant reason to deny gay people the right to marry, so all you can do it to try to tie it to an unrelated divisive issue and hope for the best.
Straight people discriminate against gays so it's alright for you to discriminate against polygamists. Is that what you are saying jackass?

What harm would a loving marriage of three consenting adult men cause you or anyone else? We won't wait for an answer since you have don't have one.

Just say NO, to Gover Norquist and his crazy ideas that come from the Middle East.

Republicans, Tea Party Nation members and GOP, break Grover Norquist's grip on you.

He even looks like a demon!

Definitely Bush's fault. It was almost Romney's fault, the popular vote was close. But Obama won so it's Bush's fault for 4 more years.

Funny!

That's all the bigots really have to justify denying polygamy. "It's illegal".

Research the reasons it's illegal and then come back and justify them. We won't wait.

P.S. Same sex marriage is effectively illegal in most states. Will you accept that as a reason to deny it? We won't wait for an answer.

It looks as if the 75% of voters who approved of President Obama's economic approach in exit polls to help America and the middle class, working poor are getting a voice in Congress.

People like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Paul Ryan, Ron Paul, Tim Donnelly, Willard Mitt Romney, John BoneHead himer, Grover Norquist and other Republican, GOP and Tea Party Meat-Heads need to get their act straightened up.

The GOP and Republican outlaws are being hunted down as you read this message, they haven't a chance since they have already been tried and convicted of treason against the citizens of The United States of America.

All the while those pesky Tea Party members are running like cockroaches from the limelight of the world.

How many marriages out there are keeping people trapped in a bad relationship, sure you can divorce but that just makes matters worse in most cases who want to continue paying alomony to someone you no longer live with. If two adults want to live together they should be ablt to freely and the same to leavi

A "separate issue"? What's that supposed to mean? Same sex marriage is a "separate issue" too.

You make no sense. And you plagiarize my schtick, you greasy little thief! Like it eh, Fruitloops? Yeah it's good.

What a jerk!
