I guess we can put Holthaus down as one of those who would stand by and watch rather than stand up and say something.

So many have stood on the sideline and let more damage take place to the city of Glendora, California.

Spinless people will prase the dangerous and belittle the weak and unprotected. Just ask B.K. Holthaus he knows what I'm talking about.

B.K. Holthaus

I hope this is a step in the right direction to keep those who whine about every little thing in our city quiet for a while at least!

It means celebrate what you DO have and think less about what you don't have.

I wonder if he was ever on one of those special lists?

What do you say now Holthaus, no statue of limitations, if you were I'd keep your mouth shut and move out of Glendora real quick.

Your arguments suck, but not in the good way. SSM Is legal in many places
And its not legal in far more places than it is.
and it will soon be legal throughout the entire country.
May be it will, maybe it won't.

The slippery slope argument against SAME SEX MARRIAGE is valid but inconsequential and no reason to deny rights. You seem to disagree?

What the heck is real issue? Why don't SSM advocates embrace polygamy, or at least acknowledge that legal ssm will open the door to plural marriage? Are they so afraid of the backlash of public opinion, that they don't have the courage to admit this? This whole notion of "marriage equality" contains within it the acceptance and recognition of plural marriage relationships.

Actually, it's more of a "who cares?" thought. If SSM opens a door to Poly, so what?! Really, so what if it does?

By the way, straight marriage is leading to SSM. So if SSM leads to Poly, and you really, really don't want Poly then you should be arguing to get rid of the root cause which is staright marriage.

See how much credit that will buy you.

Then again, if you don't think straight marriage marriage leads to SSM then your whole fear about SSM leading to Poly is unfounded and a lie.

Of course, they are all marriage and they all deserve the same respect and consideration. Don't you agree?

Tell the judge polygamy should not be allowed because it's a "non issue get over it" when it comes to court. See if it flies!

Since you don't have a good argument against gay marriage, you try to cloud the issue with the polygamy red herring. Why not start a forum on the topic of polygamy? Oh, yeah, you don't really give a damn about it.

Since you don't have a good argument against polygamy you call it a red herring.

And you try to censor it away. It's not off topic and it's not a red herring. Don't be scared.

Why don't you give polygamy the same respect and consideration you give same sex marriage? Are you a hypocrite?

When poly gets to court, you should tell the judge it shouldn't be allowed because it's a red herring. See how that flies! Good luck!

What harm would a marriage of three men cause you?

Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?

My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.

WHY VOTE????
Liberals can not care less about your vote!!!

They think they know better. They want total control.

Your vote is just an inconvenience to their communist agenda!
