Try a relax, Fruitloops!

What, there's so much on topic discussion going on here you don't want to limit bandwidth? Or you're just mad at me? YUK!YUK!YUK!

I think the judge's decision bodes well for polygamy.

What do you think? Please try and control yourself and stay on topic!

You mean... a judge didnít overturn anything on poly marriage... we had best let Mike know that.:D
I love the whole bait and switch tactic that opponents of same sex marriage use, and I am glad Mike has finally exposed himself as one. It isnt natural for him to be honest about anything.
Wrong. I support your right to marry your boyfriend. And Jane's too! I love a gay wedding! Just not yours.

Well, that's settled. So why do you support monogamy but not polygamy? Do you think the judge would make the same decision if it involved polygamy?

I donít really care about Poly marriage, it might bode well for it, time will tell. We will cross that bridge when we get to it.

that isnít the issue of course, or even the topic, the issue is same-sex marriage.

Which is now in the highest court, the real question is.. Will they come back supporting the overturn of Prop 8 in a narrow way... affecting California only, or in a broader way, affecting the entire nation.

I suspect the narrow way, as that is the safer route, but hope for the broader way.

I am already married, I donít happen to be gay, but as an American patriot I am for justice and so support the idea of same sex marriages

I donít really care about Poly marriage, have not put a lot of thought into it, and really donít need to right now, we can cross that bridge when we come to it. Not of any real interest to me, and not any serious legal action on that one right now.

But same sex marriage there is a lot of activity

I donít believe your support of gay marriage, because you would not be doing the standard bait and switch that the opponents of gay marriage use as a standard tactic.

You lie so easily and so often, I am not about to just believe whatever you say you are for or against. You have been defending the opponents of same sex marriages on this forum for weeks now, and bashing every supporter of it, I think that is more telling than what you say you support.

Wrong dipstick, he is verry much correct. You are here simply to deflect the topic at hand by using what you think is an equal issue. The cold hard reality is this, I have yet to see 2-3 percent of the population requset incest marriage or multiple partner marriage. Your tatic is plain as the nose on your face, we all see it. Now be a good lil asshat and go play on the freeway

We can thank the subversive decadent behavior that America has been sanctioning through technology and follyhood for decades. Homosexuals like to point out the failures of other human beings to rationalize their own perverted, unhealthy, unnatural behavior that is no way to go through life.
Thanks to our greedy, sick, and perverted polititians, ss parenting has now become a reality here in the state of Assachewsetts. The same state that has had a pedo problem and an incest problem for decades. But gay parenting is the greatest mistake made yet. To think that two men, gay or straight should qualify as parenting is preposterous. All children should be afforded the basic human rights of a female mother and male father to ensure proper balance and structure within any household.
All children should also be provided with a female mother as well to ensure nurturing and compassion that only a 'female' mother can provide in the childs most indelible years of their lives. But because of money, votes, and political correctness, common sense is always abrogated.
When a state per order of the court places any child into another home because of extraordinary circumstances or 'failure' of the previous parents, why on earth punish the child even further by placing them into such a confusing unnatural environment that is homosexuality. That's just it, if common sense did prevail and this argument was championed, because it should be, the entire gay anything dominoes falls down the halls of injustice.
So as usual, we will learn the hard way. Just like the time homosexuality was considered a mental illness in the early 70's that on the surface at least would appear has contibuted to the further subversion of America and the "real war on life and women" by DEMOCRATS. So here we are, morally, physically, spiritually, and financially broken for many reasons and this is one of them. Go ask Barney how Freddy and Fanny are doin. Or Bubba Clinton, and now one of the worst Presidents in history.
When one cannot honor their own father and mother or be trusted by their own spouse how are we to trust them as representing we the people. Because they no longer do.

I support an end to the federal reserve bank and to abolish the tax code and choke off this cancer that is the United States of Israelity.

But mostly because you are a hypocrite advocating marriage be allowed to only groups you approve of and no others.
Really? And where did I say that? When are you going to learn to understand what you read and stop ASSuming?

FYI... you don't have the power to "make me mad."

It would depend upon the testimony given, now wouldn't it? Was there ANY testimony given about polygamous relationships?

So your logic is that if too few people want equal rights they should not get them?

Where would you draw the line? If ten people want to marry their sister it shouldn't be allowed but if eleven want to they should make it legal? What's your number? 100? 1000?

Why do you restrict rights based on the number of people who need them? And how do you decide the number?

You think about these things carefully Fruitloops, then come back and maybe you can try and play with the big boys!

About a year ago. You remember silly. But this is another of your straw men, lets just skip it.

Or maybe just tell us your opinion and stop making us guess? Whatever.

Do you agree that overturning prop 8 bodes well for legalizing polygamy? Why or why not?

Thanks!

I guess you're always mad then! Thought it was just me! That's good.

So. I can only ASSUME you are against polygamy by your hostile ad hominem non-answers since you refuse to tell us.

I won't bother asking anything on topic now, I get the hint. You won't ANSWER anyway.

I'm not looking for them Miss Thing.

You are against equality for polyamorists and you are afraid to say it for fear of revealing your hypocrisy.

When you stop with the straw men, maybe we can get on topic?
