Polygamy IS an equal rights issue.
No, it's not.
Everybody has the same rights when it comes to getting married to more than one person.

Well, that's an interesting question.".... If you substitute the words "Gay Marriage" for the word "polygamy", you'd be using the same argument that you've been fighting for the last bunch of years.
Not at all.
My argument is that since a man can marry a woman, a woman should have that same right.
And since a woman can marry a man, a man should have that same right.
Should people have the right to marry more than one person?
Well, that's a topic for another forum.

What ever the rules are, the government is obligated to provide equal protection under the law.

For the same reason men do women up the butt, and women take it up the butt. They enjoy it.
Think it's sick? Well, quit daydreaming about it 24/7.

Red herring.
If you can dismiss polygamy as just a "red herring", why can't polygamists dismiss gay marriage as just a "red herring"?

Please explain. No need to get all mad and sh!t.

Hypocrite.
Nothing? Like I said Rose, many years ago I attempted to converse with you. To this day I occasionally take a moment to try and explain things to you, and each time you have reverted back to your childish nature of calling everyone a bigot, racist, and homophobe. So no Rose, with the way you act, don't expect me or anyone else to take you seriously or attempt an intelligent conversation with you.

You can't counter any of my arguments, so all you do is make personal attacks and pick at typos.
You are pathetic.
You have to actually make an argument for someone to counter it Rose, and screaming- Bigot, Racist, and homophobe is not an argument.

The way I understand it is that changing the sex qualifier in "One man one woman" is an equal rights issue. But changing the number qualifier of "one man and one woman" is not.

I don't understand why this is so and no one will tell me, many here just say I am stupid or a bigot for not understanding. But really I think they don't understand either.

You mean "Everybody has the same rights when it comes to getting married to more than one person. In the United States, where it is not legal to have more than 1 spouse. What gives the government the right to dictate that ?
Rose_NoHo's answer is gonna be "That's a separate issue" and then she'll get all mad that you asked and call you names and sh!t.

SO Funny!

I like Rose_NoHo's silly names like "con dumb".

But I don't understand the joke. Does she mean "con" like in con man? Con men are dumb? Something like that?

Or is it just a dopey way of saying condom? Anyone know?

First, you would need to explain how straight religious folks marrying multiples is similar to straight and gay folks marrying just one person.

Comparing two completely unrelated things isn't a good basis for any logical argument.

But that's a silly argument. A similar one didn't hold up with interracial marriage, did it?

White and black folks has the SAME right to marry someone of the same race, didn't they?

Why did that argument fail? Was it because we believe that marriage is something more that a loveless union based only on benefits and convenience?

If you wouldn't teach your children to seek out such a loveless marriage, don't promote it as equal to others. It just makes you look foolish.

Don't forget Minnesota that voted AGAINST a ban on gay marriage!

And since Democrats won both houses in Minnesota back gay marriage will soon be legal in Minnesota too!

I don't need to explain anything to you toots, but I'm feeling generous.

Poly marriages come in all flavors. "Straight religious folks", gay religious folks, straight atheist folks, gay atheist folks, same sex, mixed sexes, religious, on and on. What a bigot!

What's "unrelated" about comparing types of marriages? What a dope!

That's exactly my point genius. Rose_NoHo's argument that "Everybody has the same rights when it comes to getting married to more than one person." is as silly as "everybody has the same rights when it comes to marrying someone of the same sex". Get it?

Duh! What a dope!

Not exactly, actually he claimed that you cannot have an intellectual conversation because you're stupid.

Glad I could clear that up for you.

Great! Since you now agree that no "verdict" was levied by the house, then Clinton was not "guilty", but only "charged" with these crimes.

I knew you'd get there eventually.

Well done!
