I guess we finally got rid of that off topic troll "Big D"! So we can resume the discussion without his rude trolling.

PROP EIGHT defined marriage as a man an a woman. This effectively bans same sex marriage and polygamy.

Overturning PROP EIGHT will make same sex marriage legal again and will be another step forward in legalizing polygamy.

Please explain how this is not off-topic before you complain about others being off topic :)
I mentioned it because you were wrong about the impeachment just like you are wrong about prop 8.

Anyway, let's get back on topic shall we?

Why are you against polygamy?

stop lying and I will stop pointing it out... do you need me to re-post it again for you, I know you have such a short memory.
by the way, the decline of religion is what made same sex marriage possible, also very much on-topic
here I will respond to your oh so "on-topic" post again and will repeat it as often as you complain about others being off topic
Please try and control yourself and stay on topic!

Sure I make you angry but don't let em see you sweat like that! Calm down! Relax and lets discuss the topic.

Why are you against marriage equality?

And is made possible by the decline of the power of religion in America.

Do you think the decline in the power of religion in America will be good for polygamy too?

Just how am I wrong in the support of the overturning of Prop 8?

I know I am not wrong about it being made possible by the decline of the power of religion in America

I know I am not wrong that it doesn’t have anything to do with the other above mentioned subject you are obsessed about.

I know that nothing in prop 8 mentions anything about poly marriage either.( however the decline of religion in America may affect that issue also )

so how am I wrong in the support of the overturning of Prop 8?

I just mention Clinton's impeachment as another thing you were wrong about.

Anyway, why do you wish to deny equal rights to polyamorists?

By your hostile reactions and constant use of the Big D "you're a liar!" straw man, I assume you are against marriage rights for poly and you believe overturning prop 8 has no effect on poly.

Am I wrong? You have refused to state your position so far.

No they weren't. You're losing your mind and hullicating! Is that why you are calling ratchet a flea bitten rat? To cover up a freudian slip?

Again, Danth's Law.
Your "Mikey is a liar" straw man is so old and boring. It's just a cover for your lies.
All in all, your post was as usual, off topic and childish.
So let's get back to the topic!
Do you think the judge would have made the same decision if PROPOSITION EIGHT involved polygamy or incest marriage?
In the last 100 years has incest or polygamy marriage ever been legal in the state of Cali?. Is there a federial law,state law that also agrees with the U. S. Constitution that prohibits polgamy?

http://www.religioustolerance.org/polylaw.htm

State laws banning polygamy may be unconstitutional, since they are based primarily on moral grounds. In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling in Lawrence v. Texas which might have some bearing on polygamy. The case involved two homosexual males who had been convicted of same-sex behavior in private. At the time, this was a criminal act in Texas

You hijack every thread and change it into anti God. I'm sure a lot of gay folks believe in a higher power, why is it so important for you to do that?

I do grant you that not all people of religion are the problem, only those that try and legislate their personal beliefs onto others.

Those are the anti-Americans we need to guard against.

I promise to never bring the subject up again, as long as no one else does. You don’t mention your religion, your God, your bible or your belief and how they apply to others, and neither will I. But if you are free to being up your religion…. So am I

The one exception to that is Mike, I will bring it up every time he brings up another off topic subject... but that is just for fun.
