I cannot stand. In front of a courthouse or anywhere for longer than 30-45 seconds. As I've told you those days are over for me, now I just want to discuss equal rights on a discussion forum in my wheelchair.
Are you in front of the courthouse with a sign now jackass? Why are you here whining for SSM, You're healthy. Get out there with your sign.
I got anxious and jumped out of a helicopter a little too soon in 1968 and I am paying for it now. I was lucky to not have symptoms begin until last year. And I led a very active life until then.
I support equal rights, you obviously do not.
And what does the number of people in jail for bigamy have to do with the fact that the federal government considers marriage "one man and one woman" only? Some people are in jail for bigamy, that's not enough for you?
In other words, you donít have a name. You donít know of anyone ( there may be, I donít know ) who is in jail specifically for Bigamy, not bigamy and other crimes like abuse, not bigamy with the other parties unaware of the bigamy, but simple bigamy. I would imagine there is one... somewhere you would think.

Got it

I donít need to be in front of a courthouse.

#1 What needs to happen is already happening faster than any civil rights journey that I can think of with regards to Same Sex Marriage

#2 There is no one in prison that I can think of specifically for Same Sex marriage.

#3 I vote, and I donít always agree on every subject with the people I vote for, but this is one consideration in who I vote for.

#4 I contribute to causes I deem worthy, and have contributed to the cause of the topic of this forum.( that is same sex marriage by the way in case you have forgotten )

as an aside, I once let a guy in a parachute jump out of a balloon I was piloting at the time, he said the experience was one in a lifetime jumping into still air like that.

I was pretty young and a rather rookie pilot at the time, I told him it was a once in a lifetime event for me too, loosing that much weight out of the balloon at 10,000 feet all of a sudden, an experience I had not had yet.

I was frantically dumping air out of the envelope, I have been in a terminal decent in a balloon for my license, but never what you would call a terminal accent ( chuckle )

It is the piece you donít want to recognize, and why people are not yet jumping on your bandwagon. It isnít time yet.

I suspect it will be time in the not too distant future, but right now it would flop on the deck like a brick

Ad hominem dopiness and anger. Doesn't prove your anti-equality stance is right.
The link does not work, anyway it's probably dumb. And it's you and your dopey sidekick Jizzy's problem, not mine.
What anti-equality stance is that, Miss Strawman?

(Got it It's a crime ( often a felony) and the penalties include prison. I don't know how many people have been sentenced to prison but SO WHAT? They could easily be and I am am sure there are some.
I donít need to be in front of a courthouse.)

So let's cut through your bulls!t Mr. Tolerance and Diversity, do you think poly should be allowed? Yes? No? Why?
The answer is not "Are you stuk on stooooopid?"
You're one to talk about stuck on stupid. You cannot even determine the topic of this thread. I have a hint for you.... it ain't polygamy.

Big D! I made a huge batch of my world famous chili for the gay rights rally at my next door neighbors house a few months ago and about 40 gays and lesbians loved it! They didn't ridicule my thoughts on marriage equality at all. They raved about the chili.

You should be so nice.

You made the claim... the burden of proof is yours. How many people are currently in jail for bigamy?

Instead of running your stupid thoughts on TOPIX, why don't you pick up a textbook and educate yourself? You seem to be completely ignorant about logic, among other things.

You tell me, it's your dumb argument against true marriage equality.

How many people have been convicted of bigamy toots? Be sure to find that too in your exhausted research on wiki!

If you chili is world famous, why have I not heard of it

I do like Chili though :)

Did you attack all those people for not screaming at the top of their lungs in favor of polygamy?

Maybe that is why they were nice

Once again, so what how long it takes?

I am sure many bigots said the same thing about SSM. If you'd notice all of your arguments are the same as SSM detractors.

So is that your best argument against marriage equality for poly? It will take a long time?

It will roll exactly like SSM did. And in as short a time, maybe shorter thanks to same sex be generally accepted and respected now.

Poly MARRIAGE deserves the same consideration and respect as same sex MARRIAGE.
