*That* joke went over your head!?
Whoa...
Well, let me try to explain it to you.
Christians say "Amen!"
So, I used the term "Ramen!" when talking about the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Because ramen and spaghetti are both types of pasta, and "Ramen!" sounds similar to "Amen!".
Actually the joke's on you. But of course that fact is lost on you.

Bigfoot, why not start a forum about polygamy where you trolls can talk about it?
Why? This is a perfectly good marriage equality thread.

No, Bigfoot, I don't. You can't be interchanged a male model. And a male model can't be used as a guide for a fight mask, like you can. I believe we should all have equal rights. You should both be able to vote.

But of course equal rights for polygamy is "not an equal rights issue, it just isn't".

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Gay couples are the picture of defective failure. Mating behavior gone abusive with NOTHING to show for it.

The vote of the IL senate did nothing to change that reality. No vote can.

Reality rules.

Ahhhhhhh Rosie but they do. ALL men have to same right to marry, enter into a legally recognized conjugal union of husband AND wife. As do all women to do the same. Marriage still requires a commonly accepted, and understood meaning. That wasn't so hard to understand.

Why did marriage start ?
well let's speculate---some animals have herds of females with one dominate male who fights off other males. Some birds mate for life. I think Wolves mate for life also. We humans have laws that are good for monogomus relationships. Some human beings are homosexual, and as thinking human beings with laws, the laws should accomodate these individuals with equal rights to marry and get the
same legal rights of heterosexual couples.

Actually it does change something, more and more people consider your opinion to be nothing but bigotry and hate and not worth listening to.

And more and more people will leave the institutions that share that opinion

There's no equality when gays can change prevailing laws and customs, but polygamists cannot. Stupid Chongo...
Let me guess Rose_NoHo's answer-

"Polygamy is not an equal rights issue. It just isn't.

If a polygamist walks into the JP and asks to marry he'll be told what every one else wanting to marry more than one person is told,'no'. See? equal."
