No, you are. You think any "change" means anything goes. That's stupid and simplistic.
Your frame of reference is so skewed because your starting point is 1 man/1 woman marriage. Guess what - if you have ANY marriage, then the door is open, dumbass. It doesn't only open when you change something.
I want the door to be opened dumbass. You don't. You're a hypocrite.

I am not lying, but maybe I am mistaking hostility towards me with hostility towards polygamy.
Fair enough. Hostility towards you is accurate. You're a dick.

Why is it you struggle with that question and I don't?
Your statement is nonsensical on its face. There is no logical correlation. You might as well pick any other "then" statement:
If heterosexuality is no longer relevant to marriage, why is the welfare of children still relevant? Why is (anything) still relevant? What a stupid position.
And what is the purpose of monogamy? Faithfulness? I think polygamous families would argue they are faithful to each other.
You're out of your league.
So, eliminating the gender part of "a man and a women" is justice and equality but eliminating the number part is stupid? Please explain.

Why do you keep repeating this as if it is some big smoking gun or something?
It's not a smoking gun, interesting that it bothers you so that speaks volumes.

It's true marriage equality. I support marriage equality for everyone. You do not.

Of course it does - but the main point of it was to discriminate against same sex marriage.
Throwing "one man and one woman" into that is as pointless as making laws against sharia law. It's a strain of extreme right-wingers who are scared of everything and trying to outlaw everything that isn't white, straight, and at least marginally "christian."
Aw, don't hog all the victim hood, it's not all about you.

What a bigoted statement "the MAIN point". The MAIN point to you maybe but to polyamorists the main point is that it prohibits polygamy.

As we all know, the homosexists claim that "everybody" supports them, when in reality all that backs them are crooked politicians and the Common Man.

But don't take my word for it. Here's the lowest common denominator in action:



With people like that on their side, who needs enemies?

How do you distinguish pedophiles who molest only boys from those who molest only girls?
If you read my post it would be clear. There are only pedophiles. There is no distinction between those pedophiles who molest only boys and those who molest only girls. Legally, there is no difference and medically/psychologically there is no difference.

What don't you understand about "a man and a woman"? It's a very simple concept really, in addition to preventing same sex marriage prop 8 also prevents poly marriage.
Sure there are other laws against poly, same as there are or have been against same sex. But we're talking prop 8 here as you jackasses like to rudely remind me every time you're at a loss for an effective argument which is always.
Prop 8 discriminates against poly marriage as surely as it does against SSM. Don't hog all the victimhood.
Laws against polygamy predate laws against same-sex marriage by a century. What you're implying is that if Prop. 8 had not passed and if DOMA hadn't been legislated, then polygamy would be legal. And that isn't the case.

Imagine if MLK was like you. Equality for his race only. All other races need not climb that mountain.

No that's not what I am implying. You are wrong, where did you get that idea?

I am stating that prop 8 prohibits polygamy as much as it does SSM.
You disagree?

MLK you ain't! He fought for freedom for all races, not just his favorite one.

So you are saying marriage equality should not be for polyamorists too? Is that equality? No of course it's not.

So, the bottom line is you don't really support marriage equality. You just want more of the same. Rights only for marriages you approve of.

It is CHILD ABUSE when Government licensed organizations DISCRIMINATE against LITTLE CHILDREN who believe membership in the Boy Scouts should be limited to boys who are morally straight. Please write your Congressman! DEMAND the tax exempt status of the Boy Scouts of America be ENDED NOW.

There's no need to make that distinction, given that it is a sex crime, not a consensual act.

So you don't accept adoption as society accepts adoption. Adoptive parents are not parents in your world. They are less than. Be sure to tell that to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
I accept adoptive parents exactly as society and social science does.

As I stated, they are one of several default options, specified as so by the word 'adoptive' preceding the word parent.

According to numerous broad and long term studies they fail to measure up to parents on the average.

You are the one denying the distinctions and the broad based disadvantages to the child because "children are adaptive".
