Dahmer was not using same sex marriage as an excuse to commit his crimes.
I get it that you donít understand the difference, but everyone else here does.
What I understand is that you are ignorant.

You are trying to tell me that polygamy has a bad and that is justified. Ignorance and bigotry plain and simple.

Oh no mistake, you would not follow that path so precisely defined for so long. Granted it is no surprise, falling that path means you donít have to actually think for yourself at all.

So that means to you that the other few million poly marriages around the world should be made illegal?

Necessary repeat of disclaimer, for the dopes who forgot again-

You have to try and understand, when I talk of marriage equality, it is understood I am talking about COMMITTED CONSENSUAL ADULTS.

In every case of opposite sex, same sex, incest and poly marriage. Get it? Got it? Good!

Ever since I began researching the topic of polygamy, I have been bothered by the idea that this practice is justifiably criminalized because it is associated with the ills of child exploitation, abuse of women and children, etc.

But, within the criminal code, we have clear and specific provisions to target these offences, which are clearly harmful, and which any reasonable person considers intolerable and deserving of criminal sanction. So why does the law banning polygamy remain, a provision which, by the way, is almost never invoked and when it has been used, has led to few convictions that carried relatively minimal sentences?

If someone commits a crime, prosecute the hell out of them NO MATTER THE TYPE OF MARRIAGE THEY CHOOSE.

Perhaps I need to explain this to you clowns in simpler terms. It means we have perfectly good laws against the crimes you fear are associated with polygamy. Therefore why is polygamy illegal?

More people in traditional MARRIAGES are child molesters and welfare cheats than people in poly MARRIAGES by a factor of about 15,500,000 to 1.

Watch, you'll whine about the mention of poly, but not traditional marriage! Priceless.

Look up the existing laws. One more time, I nor Big D care if you want five wives, hire a lawyer and go for it. Are we clear?
