More people in traditional MARRIAGES are child molesters and welfare cheats than people in poly MARRIAGES by a factor of about 15,500,000 to 1.
Watch, you'll whine about the mention of poly, but not traditional marriage! Priceless.
No one is arguing that fact dummy. I cant help pervert heterosexuals. Gawddd you are stoopid. We told you its the public's perception of Poly marriage. Just like the public's perception of same sex marriage. Its up to you and those who support poly marriage to change it.

Yes you are trying to tell me it has an image problem. It does. But what I object to is how much of an image problem you think it has and the fact that you insist this image problem is justified. That's ignorance and bigotry plain and simple.

Ever since I began researching the topic of polygamy, I have been bothered by the idea that this practice is justifiably criminalized because it is associated with the ills of child exploitation, abuse of women and children, etc.
But, within the criminal code, we have clear and specific provisions to target these offences, which are clearly harmful, and which any reasonable person considers intolerable and deserving of criminal sanction. So why does the law banning polygamy remain, a provision which, by the way, is almost never invoked and when it has been used, has led to few convictions that carried relatively minimal sentences?
If someone commits a crime, prosecute the hell out of them NO MATTER THE TYPE OF MARRIAGE THEY CHOOSE.
Perhaps I need to explain this to you clowns in simpler terms. It means we have perfectly good laws against the crimes you fear are associated with polygamy. Therefore why is polygamy illegal?

How many times do I have to tell you dummy, I don't want five wives. I want to discuss marriage equality.

You are (supposed to be) discussing gay marriage, do you want to marry a man? If not stop discussing it!

See how silly you are?

More gay men molest children than men in poly marriages. Should we outlaw gay marriage?

If I where gay, then I would want the choice to marry.

You'll read it and then post the same dopey stuff as if you didn't read it.

Your dumb position seems to be some polygamists are bad and poly has a bad image therefore I cannot discuss poly MARRIAGE equality on a MARRIAGE eqiuality forum.

And in order for you to allow me to even mention it, I must go to fkn SCOTUS first!

What a jerk!

That isnít the issue dummy

The issue is again, one of image, you could not get enough signatures on the ballot until you find more responsible people to represent your case. THAT is what you need to correct

I posted you a link, thats not the case in EVERY poly marriage. Why do you support child molestation?
That's not the case in many thousands of monogamous marriages either.

Many, many more people in monogamous marriages are child abusers than in poly marriages BY FAR.

Oh! So is that your only reason to try and not allow me to even mention the word POLYGAMY? That it has a bad image and it will be hard to enact? Same thing happened with ssm remember?

You'll be surprised at how fast images can change with education. But you shouldn't be, you saw it happen with same sex marriage.

Come on Jackass get your sh!t together and try again.

I call BULLSHIT. Its a cold fact that you are OH so wrong.

"Adoption expert, Carrie Craft cites the Child Welfare Information Gateway (previously National Adoption Information Clearinghouse) as stating, "A child's risk of being molested by his or her relatives' heterosexual partner is over one hundred times greater than by someone who might be identifiable as being homosexual." The study also found that of 269 cases of child sex abuse, only two offenders where found to be gay or lesbian. The American Psychological Association agrees, "Another myth about homosexuality is the mistaken belief that gay men have more of a tendency than heterosexual men to sexually molest children. There is no evidence to suggest that homosexuals molest children."

I'll believe you are not against those child abusing, welfare cheating polygamists when you believe I am not against gay marriage.

Interesting fact for you fruitcake. The reason you perceive welfare fraud in the poly community is because multiple spouses are not allowed.

Therefore only one wife can be on a joint return, the other wives the GOVERNMENT considers single. If the government allowed them to be married, that problem that they created will go away.
