A federal judge in California has knocked down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, ruling Wednesday that the state's controversial Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

One day an atractive young man asked a beautiful woman to marry him, but she said no.
And he lived happily ever after.
A wonderful fairy tale! Thank you for sharing!

You're stupid. It's not a matter of "all or nothing". You're engaging in a slippery slope fallacy.
And nobody can force you to accept anything, bigfoot.
The slippery slope is not a reason to deny same sex marriage, but it is not a fallacy.

You would do well to be smart and honest, instead of pig headedly stubborn, nasty, dishonest, mean and stupid! But that's our Rose_NoHo!

Mother Nature speaks to us in many ways. Sadly many humans do not listen and so she reacts accordingly.

Obama is the ceo for corporate america and the united states of israelity.
We were sold out so now they wish to "legalize" 11 million criminals as replacements.
Both parties do.

Agree. Polygamy if legal will be relatively rare and self limiting.
The problem we have here is that same sex marriage supporters on this thread seem to think polygamy rights are some sort of trick to deprive them of their rights, as if there are only so many rights to go around and they want them all!
So true.....I'm genuinely puzzled about why same sex supporters feel threatened by anyone else having rights to marriage.

And I do fear that I'd risk my life if I put a pic of my face up, because fundies are violent, hateful and racist. That doesn't mean they are the only people who ever commit violent crimes. Now go back to typing "pants down" into search engines.

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????
That isnít the problem, you would indeed hope that votes didnít count if the majority of brown eyed people put up a ballot and passed a proposition to deny blue eyed people the vote

Such a measure would be deemed unconstitutional, and rightly so.

The problem is that we allow unconstitutional measures to be voted on in the first place.

How out of state interests and strong arm their own flocks to come up with loads of cash to fund an unconstitutional measure. That is what we need to fix

Do you mean like just now, when I showed Chongo to be a liar, when I proved that her side is just as, if not more, dangerous than the heterosexuals that she reviles, as per the case in point ? Re: a heterosexual woman being murdered by a transgender man, who is obviously mixed up, as can be told by the mere fact that he dresses in drag, when he is a man ? Oh, I thought that was what you meant....No, I didn't do any lying, I don't need to. Go back to "lubs me some Betty White", it was more your speed.....

It is utterly logical for polygamy rights to follow gay rights.
If traditional marriage is defined as the union of two people of opposite gender, and if the gender requirement is nothing but prejudice, exclusion and an arbitrary denial of one's autonomous choices, then the number requirement (two and only two), is a similarly arbitrary, discriminatory and indefensible denial of individual choice.
Thanks for repeating your ignorance of logic, but I don't expect much from you. If gender is arbitrary then number is arbitrary???? LMFAO@you I guess you think that is logical because you made it up, eh? You have no proof that one must follow the other, and you have no examples of where that has EVER taken place.

That "Lubs me some Betty White" of yours was very CRINGEWORTHY!

You were sucking up to Rose_NoHo adding a nice touch to the cringe!

So. Why do you feel poly MARRIAGE doesn't deserve the same consideration as SAME SEX MARRIAGE?

P.S. The answer is not polygamy should be illegal because it's illegal. You've already said that 20 times. It's stupid.

Yes. It's arbitrary, discriminatory and an indefensible denial of individual choice just like gender.

Instead of implying "It's not! you're dumb!" tell us why it is not, Miss Thing.

There is simply no call for it, just one nut on an internet forum.

There is no pending legislation on it, there is no case before the supreme court, there is no large group protesting for it.

There is nothing on the news about it other than small clans of them being arrested for other crimes. Nearly all the adherents of it today are religious cults, which are in rapid decline.

Donít let him bother you with it, it is nothing, and it is going nowhere.

The good old "there aren't enough people involved to give them equal rights" argument.

With the "there are no cases before SCOTUS presently so it's OK to deny equal rights" argument thrown in for good measure.

You, jackass, are a hypocrite.

Hope that helps!

Priceless!

Really?. Do you think there is some kind of universal law that says if one part is arbitrary, all parts are arbitrary????? That is a textbook definition of a composition fallacy. Do you know what happens when you use a fallacy to make a point? Here's a clue: you failed to prove your point.
