No. I am not interested in a poly marriage.
I am only interested in discussing it in relation to same marriage equality. As I've told you countless times.
If it upsets you so much or you don't understand my points, it's not my problem, Just stop stalking me creep.
We know, you are only interested in discussing it as a tactic to attack anyone that is in favor of same sex marriage.

We all know that, and the only point you have is the one on top of your head.

what you are saying is that you donít realize there is a difference in the public perception.
I do get that you have no clue about that.
No criminal's have used same sex marrage as an excuse for thier crimes. Poly advocates cant say that.
You don't seem to know that was the same for homosexuals in the recent past. Watch the video! This is what we were taught in school. That homosexuals were evil and mentally ill. It was against the law.

Please watch the link "Boys beware! Homosexuals are on the Prowl" This is one of the milder "educational" movies they showed us IN PUBLIC SCHOOL.

You just don't get it.

You're very angry. But you know I am right. How can you argue against equal rights like that?

this is great! finally comes understanding and compassion. it would be just as unconstitutional to ban same sex marriage as it would to take ahetersosexual couple and force them to seperate or to deny them their God given right of freedom to love who they want. For example,HUD housing,certain states deny two of the same sex to cohabit even if they were legally married in another state ,all because of the unconstitutional bans on this basic human right.So then,the two who are in love,are evicted and left to struggle to find another home!its injustice! Finally,a judge has b
rought justice to california!

Janey Doody, it's the other way around.

"Opponents of gay rights often warn that legalizing same-sex marriage would inexorably lead to legalizing polygamy. Maybe it would, and maybe it should. Denying gay couples the right to marry violates state constitutional guarantees of equality, as several states high courts have rightly ruled.(The Supreme Court of California also held that the right to marry is fundamental.)

Surely Mormons have the same rights to equal treatment under lawóand of course, they have a substantial First Amendment claim to engage in multiple marriages according to the dictates of their faith.

So why is polygamy illegal? Why donít Mormons have the right to enter into multiple marriages sanctified by their church, if not the state? Thereís a short answer to this question but not a very good one: polygamy is illegal and unprotected by the Constitution because the Supreme Court doesnít like it. Over one hundred years ago, the Court held in Reynolds v. U.S. that polygamy was ďan offence against society...Ē

If you are trying to teach me that polyamorists don't deserve equal protection then yes, I am unteachable.

Because you are wrong. And you won't say why they don't deserve it, you just say "because it's against the law!"

You know damn well I support SSM. How could I not without being a hypocrite like you? The old Big D "you're a liar" straw man.

Any desperation here is yours, you are getting dishonest again and you are not even bothering to conceal your bigotry and hypocrisy.

What you say about "the face of polygamy" is ugly hateful rhetoric NO DIFFERENT from what was said about homosexuals a few decades ago. You thinly disguise it by claiming it's not you, it's everybody else.

ha ha so funny. The government removed 436 children from their biological parents with no evidence of any crime or abuse beyond polygamy. ha ha ha! good one! A real knee slapper.

Little kids crying and terrified. In police cars and strange homes and orphanages away from their siblings. Not allowed to see their criminal parents. What a laugh eh?

No I donít believe for one moment that you support SSM

I know you say you do, but you constant tactics to try and distract, and your incessant attacks on anyone that supports SSM and your constant defending of anyone opposed exposes your actual position

No one is fooled

On the basis of one anonymous phone call (that later appeared to be a hoax), Texas authorities forcibly removed more than 460 children from their parents without evidence of actual abuse in each case. Parents and children were ordered to undergo DNA testing (Who knows how long the state will maintain the DNA database, or to what uses it will be put?), and the children were summarily consigned to the notorious Texas foster-care system.

You approve of this sh!t?
