As many posters point out, there always has been a push, and if gay couples impose their relationship on marriage, polygamy will legally be required to be accepted.

Really? What law is that?

Who says they were denied equal protection?
Polyamorists wishing to marry are denied equal protection Miss Thing.

The are not allowed to do it. They will go to prison if they do.

Same sex and opposite sex marriages are allowed by the feds. You can do it. You won't go to prison, you'll even get lots of free stuff!

This is not equal protection. Are you starting to get it Miss Thing?

1. If marriage is dumbed down to a friendship as a civil right, it does not matter what laws will be affected.
2. Which brings us to your claim that gay marriage won't affect any standing laws. A silly assertion that your own example proves will require legal changes among numerous other consequences.
Smile.
How does smae sex marriage change any laws?

OK let me put it in very simple terms for you.
You are trying to say that one leads to another which leads to another etc
Work to get poly legal in one state, a state that already recognizes same sex marriages ( else your argument won’t work ) and then we can discuss if one led to the other.
If Utah recognizes poly, that won’t work, because Utah does not ( and will not soon ) recognize same sex marriages.
The Brown case is in a state ( I think ) which does not recognize same sex marriages so that certainly would not apply as one leading to the other.
The only way you can even start to make the case that one leads to the other is to get Poly recognized in a state that does recognize same sex marriages ( and preferably not in any state that does not ) and then you can just barely start to make the case that one leads to the other.
after that you can work on your sister, and then perhaps your goat if you really want to carry it that far.:)
But before you can make any argument that one leads to another, you need to get one state to recognize it, a state that currently recognizes same sex marriage.
So far… you got zip
Go get google glass and we will watch, it will be fun!
I am saying legalizing same sex marriage will make it much easier to legalize polygamy.

And it will, it's logical, grasshopper. Glad it makes you so silly mad. It makes me happy. I like same sex marriage being allowed I also like poly marriage being allowed.

Marriage is good for society ALL marriages. Not just Big D approved marriages. You have no say in anyone's equal rights. You don't matter. Just grin and bear it. Won't hurt you at all.

Good! He has found some people find social change very painful.

No pain for Neil Andblowme, no gain for equality.

That's one of your sidekick Jizzybirdy's best arguments against polygamy. It's not popular enough.

I didn't make up the rules in Logic. It's Logic 101.
The slippery slope argument is what it is.
The Slippery Slope is a fallacy in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another without any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between one event and the one in question and no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed.
let's try this ploy:

Making the connection between same-sex marriage legalization leading to poly and incestuous marriages does not meet the definition of a slippery slope argument as the connection is already being made. Both in the US and in other countries.

Perhaps you should read that definition a little slower next time.

We know that Miss thing. But a law that says marriage is only one man one woman effectively bans polygamy too.

It's demise is one more step in the right direction towards true equality. Sorry to horn in on your equal protection, I know, so gauche.

But rights are not limited no need to be greedy! We won't take much anyway, just the same as what you got. That's fair right? Xavier?...right?...Xavier?...

We're here! Were Poly! And we're in Mona Lott's face!(and it makes him silly-mad and stupid!)
