After almost 3 years, you should have known that.
Wrong again Jizzy! It's about a judge overturning California's ban on same sex marriage AND polygamy. After almost three years, you should know that.

Just what don't you understand about prop 8? It says "marriage is a man and a woman". Does it say men and women? Think hard. Ask for help.

Yes that is true, but did he also come to abolish the laws? That also is in the Bible, I am a Christian. Just to help you, this is what Jesus said:“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them."

Bill, what don't you understand about prop 8? It forbids polygamy as surely as it forbids same sex marriage.

It says in California, "marriage is a man and a woman". Does it say "men and women" Old SniffButts Billy? Think hard. Sound it out. Ask for help. Remember! There are no dumb posts. Only dopes like you.

That is the topic. Show me where it says anything about polygamy.
You can not miss it, look at the top of the page.
Supreme Court did not rule Tuesday on Proposition 8, the 2008 California initiative that banned same-sex marriage in the state, but signaled that the decision will come Wednesday.
The justices also did not issue their decision on the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which bars gay and lesbian married couples from receiving the same federal benefits as opposite-sex spouses. They indicated, however, that the decision in that case also will come Wednesday, saying all remaining opinions from the court's annual term would be issued then.
http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Rulings...
Proposition 8 was a ballot initiative, and a California state constitutional amendment, passed in the November 2008 elections, which says that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." The proposition overturned the California Supreme Court's ruling — from the same year — that same-sex couples "have a constitutional right to marry." However, Prop 8 didn't affect the state's domestic partnerships or same sex marriages performed before November 5, 2008. Nonetheless, the passage of Prop 8 — the same day the first African American president was elected — unleashed protests, demonstrations and numerous lawsuits challenging the proposition's validity. United States District Court Judge Vaughn Walker, who is openly gay, overturned Proposition 8 on August 4, 2010 in the case Perry v. Schwarzenegger, ruling that it violated both the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the United States Constitution. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals continued the stay, keeping Walker's ruling "on hold pending appeal." On February 7, 2012, in a 2–1 decision, a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel affirmed Walker's decision declaring the Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional.

If the other law against polygamy was repealed but prop 8 was not, would polygamy be legal in CA Jizzy?

No? Why not? because prop 8 bans it! Amazing huh? Always ask for help.

No, Prop 8 does not say anything about palm trees. But it does say marriage is A man and A woman, which prohibits SSM and Polygamy equally.

Glad it upsets you, but that's marriage equality, it's even for people you don't like. That's what equality means!

Relax, what harm would a loving marriage of three men cause you? Don't like poly marriage? Don't marry more than one person. Easy!

If legalized, polygamy will still be so rare you'll probably never have to be offended by the sight of a happy poly family.

One can only ask do you eat pork, shrimp?
Tell me are you allowed to marry a Gentile?
No Riccardo, your salvation does not come from the OT (Torah) but through the Blood of the Christ. See ya sport
Jesus did not come to this earth for the purpose of acting as an opponent of the law. His goal was not to prevent its fulfillment. Rather, He revered it, loved it, obeyed it, and brought it to fruition. He fulfilled the law’s prophetic utterances regarding Himself (Luke 24:44). Christ fulfilled the demands of the Mosaic law, which called for perfect obedience under threat of a “curse”(see Galatians 3:10, 13). In this sense, the law’s divine design will ever have an abiding effect. It will always accomplish the purpose for which it was given.

Bill and/or Jizzy are feverishly rigging the judge-its to cancel any support for Frankie!

Come one dudes, make it credible.

You two morons are wrong. Prop 8 prohibits polygamy too. Lie with it. Admit your ignorance and move on.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage.

Prop 8 also bans polygamy. It's over turning is a victory for polygamy too. Equally.

If you don't like it, that's irrelevant. But don't tell me prop 8 doesn't ban polygamy.
