Why are homosexuals bigoted towards 3 people getting married? Obama can't be a homosexual advocate, but gays endorse him.

Hmmm.... Imagine trying to remember 2 birthdays, 2 anniversaries, 2 family histories, 2 sets of likes and dislikes, etc. What drama! No thanks.

This is classic misdirection. You don't have a logical reason why two people of the same gender can't get married, so you make up something else. It's straight out of the Dr. Laura Schlessinger Handbook.

"If gay people can get married, that could open the door to all sorts of things. Bigamy! Incestuous marriages! Adults marrying 10-year-olds! People marrying dolphins! You're not in favor of a man being able to marry his 10-year-old daughter, are you? Are you???"

Uh, no. That's not what this discussion is about. It's about two consenting adults who want to enter into a legally binding, loving, committed relationship.

People used this same scare tactic with interracial marriage, too, but golly, now that it's common for blacks and whites to marry, I don't see any doors being flung open to incestuous unions or bigamy.

Speaking of misdirection...gay marriage and interracial marriages are SOOO different. Where does the bible (or any religious dogma) speak against interracial unions?

One is natural, leads to beautiful children, the miracle of life. Always has and always will. Comparing the ignorance that stood against interracial marriage to the opposition to gay marriage is crazy.

Will -
I think we should judge each question on its own merits. I'm not saying that because we have interracial marriage, we should have same-sex marriage. Not at all. I'm saying that we were told what awful things interracial marriage would lead to, and none of it came true. Now we're being told that gay marriage would lead to the same things. And you know what? Gay marriage has nothing to do with incest or pedophilia or bigamy. People need to decide what they think about the issue itself, not about a bunch of separate issues that have no relation.

As to your comments that "one is natural" ... I know an awful lot of gays and lesbians who would tell you that their loves is perfectly natural, too, and they seem pretty sincere about that. I don't see how it's your place or my place or anyone else's place to tell them who it's "natural" to fall in love with and care for.

Marriage does not exist for the sole purpose of procreation. If it did, we wouldn't allow postmenopausal women to marry, or impotent men, or young couples who have decided that they don't want children.

As to the Bible ... you can interpret it how you wish, and I'll interpret it how I wish, but that's immaterial to this discussion, too. If the law and the courts say that gay marriage is legal, that does not mean that your church or your denomination needs to recognize it and will be forced to start performing gay marriages. That's up to each church.

I'm with you there man how can homos be against three way marriage like it immorals or some thing and then want the right to have an immoral union of their own.One that spits in that spits in God's and nature's face.Atleast a three way union would produce off spring so that's within nature's guideline's.I'm really sure what the bible says about it although I do remember reading that certain people in the bible had multiple wives.

There is nothing here substantive regarding multiple marriage (Pro or Con).

If we have (finally) crossed the gender barrier, is there a legitimate argument for stopping multi-partner marriages? Why?
Please don't include children, objects, animal's or the dead in our conversation about what can be a legal marriage-those things are just ridiculous distractions.

If gender is not an issue any more why is 2 the magic number?

Why would you want to be a polygamist? Isn't one spouse enough work?

No one gets married because they are "In love!" We get married because we messed up and I got you pregnant, or because we want the consistent, dependable sex, or maybe because the other person has good "stuff" that is out of our price range.
But to turn marriage into some hokey "Father Knows Best" lovey dovey stuff is absurd! And to make matters worse, homos want us to believe that they are in love when all they want is to pack fudge or munch carpet!!!

Yes, three people can get married in the USA, just not to each other.
