Yep. Women and non-white people can vote. It's against the law to murder natives. Slavery is illegal...

What the heck is real issue? Why don't SSM advocates embrace polygamy, or at least acknowledge that legal ssm will open the door to plural marriage? Are they so afraid of the backlash of public opinion, that they don't have the courage to admit this? This whole notion of "marriage equality" contains within it the acceptance and recognition of plural marriage relationships.
Since you don't have a good argument against gay marriage, you try to cloud the issue with the polygamy red herring. Why not start a forum on the topic of polygamy? Oh, yeah, you don't really give a damn about it.

Since you don't have a good argument against polygamy you call it a red herring.

And you try to censor it away. It's not off topic and it's not a red herring. Don't be scared.

Why don't you give polygamy the same respect and consideration you give same sex marriage? Are you a hypocrite?

When poly gets to court, you should tell the judge it shouldn't be allowed because it's a red herring. See how that flies! Good luck!

What harm would a marriage of three men cause you?

WHY VOTE wrote:
Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?

My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.

WHY VOTE????
Liberals can not care less about your vote!!!

They think they know better. They want total control.

Your vote is just an inconvenience to their communist agenda!

UK and France legalize marriage equality. Meanwhile in AmeriKKKa children in Newtown, Connecticut and Chicago and being gunned down due the blood stained policies of the NRA.

P.S. This is why the world, and many Americans, hates this country.

You Liberals hate this country!!!

Why millions cross the border to come here, goofball?

America is the best country in the world!

Full of Conservative Christians who risk their lives to help other overseas.

Conservatives who care abs love others and send millions of dollars to help other countries in need!

ONLY Libtards hate America!!!

Kids are gunned down because parents are not allowed to protect then with their own guns, goofball!

Why do you think Texas has no "kids gun down" problem?

Did you know that cities that allow guns are less violent and have less crime?

I wonder why? I wonder why?

Did you know that the Supreme Court said the police has NO DUTY to protect you, goofball?

I hope someday you wish you had a gun, when you see the barrel of another in your face!! Too late, baby!!!

As for me and my family... We all know how to use them and we all have conceal!!!

Do you really think that taking guns from law abiding citizens will reduce crime?

Oh never mind, you are a Libtars so you believe criminals will have no guns to kill you after the government takes yours, goofball!

USA has a net negative migration rate. More people are leaving the AmeriKKKa nation than entering.
America is the best country in the world!
Not true in terms of education, healthcare, wealth equality, birth mortality, etc.

Most Conservative Christians are the ones pushing for killing and wars overseas.
Why do you think Texas has no "kids gun down" problem?
They do. Texas is one of the worst states in the union with the highest teen pregnancy, poverty, stupidity, illiteracy, etc.
Did you know that cities that allow guns are less violent and have less crime?
Not true. You are lying.
Do you really think that taking guns from law abiding citizens will reduce crime?
Yes Amerifat. Statistically it's been proven that less guns = less killing. Look at UK with only 35 deaths caused by guns last year.

Actually, it's more of a "who cares?" thought. If SSM opens a door to Poly, so what?! Really, so what if it does?
<quoted text>
S o w h a t !? Non-issue, get over it.
Here we go again, a buff ego with no head trying to reason...

First, words describe reality. A poly-marriage holds two major common distinctions that gay couples completely fail at;
-diverse genders
-procreation

Always core identities of the relationship of marriage.

This still ignores the fundamental essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Something you still have been abjectly unable to surmount with an iota of reason...

All this and more clearly disqualifies gay couples from marriage. No matter what some twisted judge decrees...

However, the practice of polygamy is rooted in two reasons;
-Supporting a population that has more females than males.
-A substandard solution to address male mating behavior drive.

It also has this vicious backlash for women. Let me use Mohammad and Bin Laden as examples;

Both had polygamous marriages. Both had wives engaged in vicious fights for dominance and attention.

By the way, straight marriage is leading to SSM. So if SSM leads to Poly, and you really, really don't want Poly then you should be arguing to get rid of the root cause which is staright marriage.
See how much credit that will buy you.
Then again, if you don't think straight marriage marriage leads to SSM then your whole fear about SSM leading to Poly is unfounded and a lie.
Your headless buff ego knows no bounds...

As noted above, marriage does NOT "lead to ssm". They are, of all relational types, literally opposites.

Moreover, your gay twirl asserts that the perversion of a good thing (marriage) means you get rid of the good thing, instead of eradicating the negative element. Are you serious???

In other words, we have laws prohibiting polygamy instead of abolishing marriage, the best and intended birthplace of human fruit.

Congratulations! You boggle the mind of a half senile old man with your stupidity...

Smirk smile.

If you knew history, you'd know they knew they had sounded the death knell for those issues.

While those issues have been confronted over and over in history, calling gay couples married has only extremely rarely and briefly been attempted. A clear distinction.

Ho, Ho, Ho.

I remembered when the slippery slide argument was discounted in the debate about legalizing abortion. There would 'never be acceptance' for the killing of viable babies. There are no restrictions. You know that, don't you.

Isn't that a Ho, Ho, Ho.

Same sex marriage is like abortion or women combat troops in the front lines. Same sex marriage is like gender apartheid marriage where before marriage had perfect gender diversity, integration and union.

Judges should rule by law, not wright law. Sympathy isn't the function of justice, maybe they should go to church, where they encourage charity and mercy. Law is for consistent results along tradition and precedent, not radical new standards of marriage.

Not me! But some do. And some women want more than one husband. And sometimes three men want to marry. I say let 'em. Their rights are just as important as anyone else's.
