It would be hard to do. If you had had paid attention you would have seen. You are not here very often. And when you are you just post ad hominem.

Janey-Doody is adamant the judges decision had absolutely no effect on polygamy. You and Big D I think believe it does bode well for poly (I'm not sure though because you mostly just post dopey ad hominem) Also Rock Hudson believes it bodes well for poly. For just a few examples.

The decline of religious dogma affecting the lives of Americans has had many beneficial affects
1. Birth control is available to single adults.
2. Stores can be open on Sundays.
3. Non christians children are not subjected to being ostracized in public schools during "prayers"
4. In most states Blue laws are a thing of the past.
5. Freedom of Religion has been expanded and applies to all Americans, not just Christians.
6. The religious litmus test for political candidates is on its way out the door.
I think the list is longer than that actually, but those are indeed very positive directions.

Oh I am not all that intelligent, about average I guess, bright enough to wipe the floor with you, but look around, just about everyone is.
The thing is your goal is to "wipe the floor with me" and my goal is to discuss equal rights.

I suppose another of your goals is to gather a lot of fans. Don't be so proud. Most of them are dummies.

First of all jackass, it's a discussion not a Q and A.

Second of all give me post numbers of someone responding to me seriously without the insults and ad hominem.

I suggest you avoid the discussion to avoid revealing your hypocrisy.

Your post reminded me of something

I will never forget the couple I knew that were so upset that Obama was re-elected they mentioned that they were considering moving to Australia, I told them that was a wonderful choice, and did they know that the prime minister of Australia is openly atheist?

Jaws hit the floor, it was hilarious.

We are actually behind the world a bit in this area, but we are catching up, and wising up

That has been achieved already, many times over, and not just by me, there are a lot of folks that have done that.

You are free to discuss equal rights all you want, just expect me to pounce when you tell others to stay on topic... cause it is fun.

You want the answer again?

It will have no effect on it whatsoever.

Any positive push by the allowing of gay marriage will be and already has been offset by the lessening of tolerance for fanatical religious fundamentalism and cult groups. Along with their decline goes the interest in your obsession as well.

Not really sure what you mean by "all marriage equality" there Frankie boy but I hazard to guess you mean
1. Marrying children
2. Marrying blood relatives, i.e. mom & son, father & daughter, brother & sister.
3. Marrying your pet.
4. polygamy
First you are using the slippery slope fallacy. But just to answer your stupidity.
1. There is thing called AGE OF CONSENT. Children can not give their consent to sex and marriage. ergo it will remain illegal.
CASED CLOSED
2. Therre are health issues with marrying close relatives, which is why it is illegal. You can easily see what happens by studying British and Russian royalty in the 1600-1800's, particularly the Tsar family, you will notice the high rate of hemophilia. And that was with cousins marrying cousins. No telling what would have happened between direct family members...well I take that back...you are a prime example.
3. Besides from the obvious health issues, animals can not give their consent to marriage....so it would be rape.
4. marriage above all else is a social contract. Inheritances, medical decisions, etc are all part of that contract. With polygamy, the lines of who gets what, who makes what decisions are blurred and lead to legal battles. Does one of the wives who is not the mother of one of the children in the marriage get to make medical decisions for that child is a prime example of why polygamy is illegal.
These are all rational, logical reasons why the slippery slope fallacy is moot. However, judging by your previous posts, intelligent logical debate is not your forte. Debating with a wall has better results.
I am of course talking about consenting committed adults, so scratch the first 3 items of your stupid list.

Modern science has debunked the myth about close relatives procreating and health issues, keep up!
And besides procreation has nothing to do with marriage right? Right.

How would a loving commited marriage of three men harm you?

The slippery slope is real, but not a reason to deny equal rights to same sex or poly marriages.

You say it will have no effect whatsoever but then you say it will make things worse for polygamy. Which is it?

Is that not a question near the end?? Oh and speaking of ad hominem attacks, you seem to be the master.

so it is obvious that since you can't address the logical answer, attacked the messenger.

BTW I'm betting you're a big Frankie Goes to Hollywood fan. Probably a Village People, Wham and George Michael fan too

Frankie boy isn't it about time for you to exit the closet? Embrace your sexuality, boy

I thought you did. It's hard to tell when you just post dopey ad hominem and references to asshat polls. So you are now saying it won't have any effect at all?

It seems to me just common sense that it will make it easier for people to accept poly when they accept same sex marriage. It seems keeping same sex marriage banned will make it more likely poly stays banned too.

A question in a discussion is to lead to further discussion, not just to answer.

No. I am not gay. And I consider anyone who uses gay as an insult even if they are gay themselves is stupid. There is nothing wrong with being gay. If I was I'd be proud.

If by modern science you mean the Bible and the story of Sodom & Gorrmorah and Lot and his daughters then yes the myth of marrying close relatives has been debunked

However, if you are talking about modern medical science, no it hasn't. There are plenty of case studies that bore this out. It actually played a role in the science of genelogy. Any college biology course covers this topic, which explains why you don't have a clue

We've already been through this. What makes you think I need your permission to discuss the topic or anything else?

You seriously don't think removing the ban on gay marriage will make it easier to remove the ban on polygamy some day?

By what logic do you insist that there will be no effect?

I answered your question but I guess you have ADD

4. marriage above all else is a social contract. Inheritances, medical decisions, etc are all part of that contract. With polygamy, the lines of who gets what, who makes what decisions are blurred and lead to legal battles. Does one of the wives who is not the mother of one of the children in the marriage get to make medical decisions for that child is a prime example of why polygamy is illegal.
These are all rational, logical reasons why the slippery slope fallacy is moot. However, judging by your previous posts, intelligent logical debate is not your forte. Debating with a wall has better results.

same sex marriage and polygamy are two separate issues. and comparing them as equal is a fallacy..something you seem to use quite frequently.

as I said marriage is a social contract. Polygamy, besides a host of problems it raises, legal issues is the biggest.

I don't want five wives or to marry my brother. I want to discuss equal rights.

Do you want to marry a man? If not why are you arguing for same sex marriage?

Don't be so stupid.

Of course you donít understand "no effect whatsoever" the net positive push is equaled by the negative push.

It doesnít matter that you didnít comprehend what I said, others here will.

Not that it will matter, no one other than you gives a crap about it.
