Good! He has found some people find social change very painful.

No pain for Neil Andblowme, no gain for equality.

That's one of your sidekick Jizzybirdy's best arguments against polygamy. It's not popular enough.

I didn't make up the rules in Logic. It's Logic 101.
The slippery slope argument is what it is.
The Slippery Slope is a fallacy in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another without any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between one event and the one in question and no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed.
let's try this ploy:

Making the connection between same-sex marriage legalization leading to poly and incestuous marriages does not meet the definition of a slippery slope argument as the connection is already being made. Both in the US and in other countries.

Perhaps you should read that definition a little slower next time.

<quoted text> No it isn't. Bigamy laws were on the books well before DOMA.
We know that Miss thing. But a law that says marriage is only one man one woman effectively bans polygamy too.

It's demise is one more step in the right direction towards true equality. Sorry to horn in on your equal protection, I know, so gauche.

But rights are not limited no need to be greedy! We won't take much anyway, just the same as what you got. That's fair right? Xavier?...right?...Xavier?...

We're here! Were Poly! And we're in Mona Lott's face!(and it makes him silly-mad and stupid!)

I'm referring to the time period of a culture as a whole. You attempt to equate the brief decade of gay 'marriage' pursuit with the consistent practice of polygamy throughout the history of America... while ignoring the prevalence and acceptance of polygamy past and present.

Smile.

Ahhhhhh......but now that SSM is legal, the polygamists are coning out of the closet. The Brown family has cited SSM in their lawsuit(s), pushing for decriminalization of their marriage/life style.
So, why not go to a forum about polygamy and talk about it? Oh, yeah, you don't give a damn about polygamy, you just want to spam this forum.

Frankie Rizzo is a troll who is really against gay marriage. He just likes to spam the forum with posts about polygamy. Bet he's never made a single post about polygamy in a forum on the subject. I've told him polygamy is a red herring in this forum, but he thinks I'm talking about a fish. He's not the sharpest tool in the ol' shed.

Polygamy is marriage. It is not a fish. When it goes to court please be sure to file a friend of the court and say it's OK to deny equal protection to polygamy because it is a fish. See how that swims.
