I don't want five wives or to marry my brother. I want to discuss equal rights.

Do you want to marry a man? If not why are you arguing for same sex marriage?

Don't be so stupid.

You say it will have no effect whatsoever but then you say it will make things worse for polygamy. Which is it?
Of course you donít understand "no effect whatsoever" the net positive push is equaled by the negative push.

It doesnít matter that you didnít comprehend what I said, others here will.

Not that it will matter, no one other than you gives a crap about it.

A question in a discussion is to lead to further discussion, not just to answer.
No. I am not gay. And I consider anyone who uses gay as an insult even if they are gay themselves is stupid. There is nothing wrong with being gay. If I was I'd be proud.
so if it was a rhetoric question, why did you chastise those who you felt didn't answer it????

C'mon Frankie boy, try and get your story straight.

BTW Why are you filled with so much anger?

It would be hard to do. If you had had paid attention you would have seen. You are not here very often. And when you are you just post ad hominem.
Janey-Doody is adamant the judges decision had absolutely no effect on polygamy. You and Big D I think believe it does bode well for poly (I'm not sure though because you mostly just post dopey ad hominem) Also Rock Hudson believes it bodes well for poly. For just a few examples.
I thought you said it would be good for poly. Must have been someone else. So sue me.

You really believe it will not have even a tiny effect?

You seriously don't think removing the ban on gay marriage will make it easier to remove the ban on polygamy some day?
By what logic do you insist that there will be no effect?
are these rhetoric questions, or do you want answers?

I want you to bring your wife on so we can discuss it with her.

of course you are not actually interested yourself, the slippery slope argument is only made by people trying to influence others to their position.

I answered your question but I guess you have ADD
4. marriage above all else is a social contract. Inheritances, medical decisions, etc are all part of that contract. With polygamy, the lines of who gets what, who makes what decisions are blurred and lead to legal battles. Does one of the wives who is not the mother of one of the children in the marriage get to make medical decisions for that child is a prime example of why polygamy is illegal.
These are all rational, logical reasons why the slippery slope fallacy is moot. However, judging by your previous posts, intelligent logical debate is not your forte. Debating with a wall has better results.
same sex marriage and polygamy are two separate issues. and comparing them as equal is a fallacy..something you seem to use quite frequently.
as I said marriage is a social contract. Polygamy, besides a host of problems it raises, legal issues is the biggest.
The "we should not allow equal rights for poly because it would be complicated" argument.

Heard it. It's bogus. We can work it out. Complexity is no reason to deny equality.

He has been given answers, he wants a public display of the "slipery slope" argument you so clearly pointed out.

he will not discuss same sex marrage in any way at all, he is 100% focused on poly, and no matter how many times that tactic fails him, he keeps at it.

I think we are looking at a learning disorder

The slippery slope is not a fallacy. It is real. If you were better educated and smarter, you would explain how it is real but inconsequential and not a reason to deny rights. You can change people's opinions for the better much quicker if you don't bullshit them.

I support marriage equality. Do you?

BINGO!!!!!

The slippery slope argument was his entire point.

And of course he will not acknowledge the opposing forces, the decline of the power of religion, and the growing distrust of religious fundamentalists.

No, the slippery slope argument is a false argument. It is like hypothetical questions; what if.....?

Yes, I support marriage equality.

Sure I acknowledge the decline in religion. But I think it's both good and bad, in your bigoted mind it's all good.

The slippery slope is real but inconsequntial and no reason to deny rights.
