Gawwd you can not be that stupid, can you? I just posted what this thread is about. The ruling has nothing to do with polygamy. Its about removing an existing right granted by the state. When was Polygamy legal in California? Go read the findings, tell me where polygamy is listed.

I just saw something I had not considered.
I know that some companies support same sex marriage, in fact I know some companies will not build an office in places where same sex benefits are not fully recognized.
But now the language is changing, over 60 major companies now are filing a brief with the supreme court saying it is a "business imperative" that same sex marriage be recognized, that they are having difficulty hiring, and moving people the best people to different states where different rules apply.
I knew most major business were on board, but I had not considered that aspect.
up to today I have been expecting the narrow ruling, affecting California alone. I may have to alter that, as more and more pile on, I suspect DOMA is going to be struck down and the ruleing may make changes across all 50 states.
If so, this will be historic.
I hope all companies pile on.

PROPOSITION EIGHT effects polygamy as much as it does same sex marriage.
Polygamy was illegal BEFORE Prop8. Prop 8 made same sex marriage illegal.

-As stupid as you? No, never.

-Prop 8 says ONE man ONE woman, the "man woman" is not more valid than the "one".

-1862

Go read the findings, tell me where polygamy is listed.
-Prop 8 says marriage is ONE Man ONE woman. Again the gender part is not more valid or worthy than the number part.

And who do hermaphrodites marry? Are they just completely cut out from the institution? They're not a man or a woman. Or this law doesn't specify for them.

You and akpilot say we're all just for a cause, for self-affirmation, and if we were really for letting everyone be happy, we would support poly marriage. But where are the hermaphrodites in this? They exist. Their conditions are genetic. Neither you nor akpilot have mentioned that.

Please, enlighten me on your insight to this.

But there isn't a rational argument against gay marriage.
Most idiots like you either prattle on about god, or say gay couples can't reproduce.
Well, there is no god. And you don't have to be able to reproduce in order to marry.

Frankie Rizzo is just a troll who is flying under false colors. He is really against gay marriage, and attacks everybody who is in favor of it. I don't think he cares about polygamy one way or another, and would be willing to bet he has never, ever posted on the topic in a forum about polygamy. He's just trying to flood the forum with posts about that red herring.

If all other laws against polygamy were repealed except PROP 8, that would be the only thing stopping polygamy from being legal in California, X-box.

Sounds relevant and on topic to me.

Don't hog all the victimhood, Prop 8 is as much about poly as it is about same sex.

What don't you understand about one man one woman? Prop 8 prohibits both same sex and poly marriage.

What posts? That's what I'm saying, you never mentioned it. I can't provide evidence to something that doesn't exist.

Which is exactly why I'm saying, it doesn't exist. You've never mentioned hermaphrodites and if you're so high and mighty on this thing and all "nobody-should-dare-get-o ff-topic-with-me" then you'll stay on topic and enlighten us about what you think about hermaphrodites marrying.

Otherwise you're just as dabbled in double standards as you and those who agree with you accuse our side of being.

If you weren't such a dope, you'd know when I say I support TRUE marriage equality, it means I support the right to marry for EVERY adult who wants marriage and wants a family. What don't you understand about "everyone" jackass?

Enough with your hypotheticals about poly marriage, it's clear enough you don't support it.

"Proposition 8 (ballot title: Eliminates Rights of Same-Sex Couples to Marry. Initiative Constitutional Amendment; originally titled the "California Marriage Protection Act")[21][22] was a California ballot proposition that changed the California Constitution to add a new section 7.5 to Article I, which reads: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.""

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Propo...

The ballot title of Proposition 8 did not in any way mention polygamy or polygamous relationships or marriages. It only mentioned the restrictions of the marriage rights of gay couples.

Now: I am going to go back through every single one of your comments posted on this forum and mark all of them "off-topic". Why?

This topic has nothing to do with the right to polygamy. If you're interested in advocating for the legal recognition of it in California, you can find a forum about it and comment all you like. If none exists, you can attempt to create one. But don't whine about it here. It has no place and your petty attempts to make Prop 8 out as anti-poly don't work now, nor did they ever.
