You go ahead and rant and rave, Same sex marriage is already a reality and will continue to spread.
Your pet rant is going nowhere, not because of any objection of mine ( I donít have an objection to the concept of it ), but because of the actions of far tooo many of the adherents of it.
There may come a time a couple of decades down the road when this changes, but it is not changing yet, regardless of what you, I or another else in this forum thinks

As religion becomes less and less a force in American politics the current adherents of it will sink further into oblivion.
Until a more mature, and more human group champions it, it is moot.
It's not moot jackass. There are real people being denied equal protection. Good people. Despite your ignorance and bigotry.

You just wish it was moot. You're dismissed.

Another fine example of your reading comprehension problem. Where did you see me write write anything about hating poly? See how you are? When you get an answer you can't dispute, you just make something else up to argue about.
I assume it because of your avoidance of the issue.

And I know it because of your infamous anti poly rant of a year or so ago. You can deny it but you and I both know it's true.

Yeah, common sense.... the decision had nothing to do with poly so it's "common sense" that it does. got it.
When I say the judges decision bodes well for poly you disagree. That's where.

I donít... I hate what far to many of the adherents do with it, child molestation and welfare fraud.

Is your objection to poly on religious grounds? You hate religion, some polygamists are religious therefore you hate polygamy?

It's common sense that removing the gender part of one man one woman makes it easier to remove the number part.

Even if Miss Thnig is too stupid to realize it or too dishonest to admit it.

Or both.

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

well first you have to stop lying and say I have an objection to poly marriage, I have not said that.

Learn to read English, I have an objection of many of the adherents of it that use it for an excuse for child abuse and welfare fraud.

Take away those adherents ( which I think we should do ), and you take away a large number of the adherents and supporters of it.

What is am saying is that it just isnít an issue that will come up for the next decade or so.

ASSume, yes you do, and most of the time you are WRONG.

You can't even follow your posts from 5 minutes ago. How can you possibly remember something that I wrote over a year ago?

The funny thing is, I do remember the post you are referring to. It wasn't my opinion. I told you I didn't have an opinion either way. Then you asked what are some of the opinions given by people who DO think polygamy is bad. I Googled it and copy&pasted it for your lazy ass. Now, it becomes "my" opinion, eh? Your memory is fucked.

How many times do I have to tell you I have NO opinion about poygamy before it sinks in? I didn't care one year ago, I don't care today and I won't care in the future. Pointing out the errors in your reasoning is NOT the same thing as taking a stand against polygamy. I don't care.

How can you label it arbitrary? You think the number two was picked at random with no reasoning behind it? Out of all the numbers, why pick two? No reason? Seriously???????

INDEFENSIBLE???????? hahahahahahah

OK.... I'm done. You don't have the intellect to discuss this. You are unteachable and incorrigible.

So I am wrong? You fully support the legalization of polygamy?

Then why did you cut and paste others ignorance and bigotry about it? To prove you supported it? I think you are giving us an alternate history of your year old post. But at least NOW you admit you made it, you have been denying it until this point.

You rant against polygamy's "adherents" like some crazed fundie does against same sex marriage "adherents".

Calling them child molesters and other ignorant accusations. There are bad people of all stripes jackass. In same sex marriages too.

But I'm not going to go for your "you're a liar!" straw man today Big Dope. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I rant against what they do, or are you saying you are pro-child molestation and welfare fraud?

I never said all adherents, I said many, which is true.
