I donít know why we are humoring him on this... it has nothing whatsoever to do with the subject at hand, and the courtís decision will have no effect on this.
I am not complaining at you, I am doing it to... why are we humoring him on this?
I dunno. Please tell us. Is it because you're too stupid to respond intelligently? Yeah. That's it!

I will tell you that I have no problem with it in principal, but I am very untrusting of some of the most vocal adherents of it.
It through no fault of its own, has a steeper hill to climb than Homosexual marriage in the public eye, because of the activities of the most vocal, and the most fierce adherents of it. The religious overtones of it, and their defiance of our nations laws.
I honestly do not think anything will come of it for the next couple of decades, not because it is inherently wrong, but because of the activities of most adherents of it.
The concept I have no issue with, as long as everything is consensual.
I'm not asking you when you think it will go to court. Or who objects to it.

And I'm not asking you to relate your ignorance and bigotry, it shows in your ignorant bigoted comments about "it's adherents". That does give a good hint about your opinion of it's legalization though.

I am asking you if you support equality for poly MARRIAGE the same as you support equality for SAME SEX MARRIAGE.

It's a simple question. You and Janey Doody have evaded it and dodged it and straw manned it for way too long. Do you believe in equality or not? Spill the beans Big Dope!

Where in the Constitution is the guarantee of equal rights?
OK then Your Honor, equal protection. The 14th amendment.

What a dope!

So your position is that poly should not be allowed because?

Arbitrary: Based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system.
Are you really going to sit there and say that the reason polygamy is illegal is arbitrary? Even though the topic was adjudicated by SCOTUS? Maybe you don't like the reason SCOTUS gave, but that hardly makes it arbitrary.
The number requirement is as arbitrary as the gender requirement.

On what grounds do you insist on the traditional, ARBITRARY and discriminatory number of two?

There you go again! Start a reading comprehension thread and get a better straw man. I don't think you'll convince many people that I have poor reading skills.

Maybe break out the arithmetic one and try that again! Poly shouldn't be allowed because 3 is not equal to two!

What a dope!

and I gave my response, take an English reading course.

I have no problem with the concept, I have a huge problem with many of the adherents of it.

I dont see any movemnet on this issue for the next couple of decades because of those adherents actions and beliefs, If even then.

I donít think I can get any simpler than that for you, do you want me to have my 9 year old grandchild answer for you in language you will understan?

To be a member of any radical muslim group is to part of a ignoprant group that will bring down those members.

An aide to Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi claims that the Holocaust was a hoax.

The myth of the Holocaust is an industry that America invented.

Asking you provocative questions about the ban on alternate forms of marriage is not "hijacking this thread".

Equal protection, yes.... unless the State can show a legitimate interest in denying it. Do you think simple arithmetic might come into play when talking about equal? How is 3 equal to 2? How is 5 equal to two? How is 3 equal to 5?

Most homophobes have a "huge problem" with the adherents of same sex marriage.

Your "huge problem" with the adherents of polygamy is no better.

You and Janey-Doody really ought to start that reading thread!

What a dope!

The judge did not overturn the ban on polygamy.

Are you trying to say three is equal to two? Maybe on your planet. Is 5 equal to two? Is 5 equal to three?

Lean to read English.... is English you native language? Maybe I can have what I am saying translated into whatever language is used where you come from.

I donít have a huge problem with poly marriage. I have a problem with other crimes that are nearly always associated with it. And will not tolerate many of the current adherents of it and their cruel molestation and mistreatment of their young, or the fraud they use to gain multiple government assistance checks at our expense.

He didn't? Oh, nevermind! YUK!YUK!YUK!

Remember Gilda Radner as Emily Litella? You're a real old auntie you've probably seen her.

But seriously, don't you agree that the judge's decision is not bad for the future of legalized polygamy?

Stop with the straw man and ad hominem. Why are you so intent on hijacking this thread for you narrow purposes of cheerleading one form of marriage over another?

I said "Your huge problem WITH THE ADHERENTS OF POLYGAMY is no better."

Learn to read English. Perhaps it is your second language? Perhaps you are a dope? A liar?
