I guarantee you, just about no one else thinks that
I was purposely using the people you would hate. It draws out your inner bigot very nicely! And it maked you very uncomfortable. Good!

But of course there are less hate worthy polygamists, even gay polygamists. Perhaps you'll tell me they have a bad image too? Not worthy the same as the dreaded Utah people? Or do you give them a pass?

I don’t have an argument, I am not opposed, I would vote in favor if it ever came up.
I don’t think all polygamists are bad, but the bad one are the only ones in the spotlight lately. You should do something about that.
It probably isn’t going to come up because no one seems to be working on bringing it up from a legal perspective. We just have people totally obsessed with it that wine and complain but do nothing.
Frankie is clearly just a troll against gay marriage who is flying under false colors and using posts about polygamy to clog up the forum. How much you want to bet he has never, ever made a post in a forum about polygamy?(He either doesn't care about polygamy one way or another.)

Well, except for the simple fact that the majority of gay folks don't engage in it, and the majority of straight folks have tried it.
And how would you go about identifying who is gay by this factor?
By this standard, the majority of folks would be gay, wouldn't they?
I think that means you are completely surrounded.
You're just making things up, as you go along, to cloud a very simple issue. Everything that Kimare said is correct.

Aw shuddup, troll. No one cares what the troll thinks about me.

Why don't you give polygamy the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage?

And while you're at it, why are you a racist?

POLLS: DOMA Is Discrimination, Equality Is Inevitable
http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2013/02/19/1610...
Two new polls released today show that the national momentum for supporting marriage equality continues.
The first poll, from the Respect for Marriage Coalition, found that American voters strongly support marriage equality, with 75 percent responding that the freedom to marry the person you love is a constitutional right. It seems clear that respondents appreciate the value of marriage equality, with 65 percent agreeing that it reflects offering “equal human dignity” to all people. And while 62 percent believe changing the law will have no impact on them, 83 percent believe that change will happen within the next decade. In sum, marriage equality is the right thing to do, poses no threat to society, and is coming soon.
The second poll, from the Center for American Progress and Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), further clarifies that voters see the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as discriminatory. The poll focused on Section 3 of DOMA, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, even when they’re legal in certain states. When the Supreme Court weighs the constitutionality of that law, the Justices might keep in mind that 59 percent oppose that law, with 62 percent agreeing that it is “discrimination. Though overall support for marriage equality hovers around 52 percent, much stronger majorities (69 – 78 percent) believe same-sex couples deserve the same benefits other married couples receive.
The infographic below features results from the DOMA poll:

There are no legitimate pools being conducted. I received no poll in the mail, or over the computer. Ergo, the polls being quoted are using carefully screened and preselected groups, designed to give certain responses. Now, if a poll is issued to every single household in Amerikkka, I will retract my words, but not until then. There are no legitimate polls being conducted. But there is plenty of propaganda being used, by both sides.

I received an interesting comment yesterday by Harry Kuheim regarding polygamous / plural marriage and gay marriage, and this has prompted me to conduct a poll. The issue here is marriage because Arizonans have watched the Arizona State legislature turn a blind eye to polygamy and pedophilia that is occurring in Colorado City, Arizona. I wrote about it here.

Please take this poll here regarding plural and gay marriage issue.

For the record Harry Kuheim, Nobody is picking on Mormons. Mitt Romney brought up Reverend Wright on the Sean Hannity show, remember? You can listen to the Romney / Hannity interview here. We are not those shut up and take it people anymore.

I am noticing how nothing is being done within our state with regard to Colorado City, Arizona, where fundamental Mormonism exists and has existed for some time. We have had and do have powerful Mormon legislators in our state such as Ken Bennett and another via Russell Pearce who did nothing about pedophilia and polygamy in one of our towns because passing Operation Wetback was more important at the time. Now….why was it easier for Pearce (a Mormon) to pass an anti-immigrant law, but COULD NOT PASS A LAW protecting little girls from pedophilia/polygamous behavior via fundamental Mormonism? Perhaps it is time for Senator Jerry Lewis to step in and do something about Colorado City, Arizona, now that Pearce has been ousted.

Question is: Will he have the fortitude to do so?






If Gay Marriage or Civil Union is allowed -- should plural marriage (polygamy) be allowed?

Yes



61%

No



20%

Polygamy can be viewed as demeaning to women



6%

I am concerned that multiple wives and children will usurp too many social services in the event the male cannot provide.



6%

I do not know.
