Perhaps you'll offer some theories on why I would lie, genuis. Can't wait.
Well since you asked:
1)You keep harping on polygamy and the perceived parallel it holds to Gay Marriage even though you yourself have said you aren’t interested in polygamy for yourself. I believe you hate fuels this obsession.
2)You continually call Gay Americans and our supporter’s derogatory names. This is a typical hater tactic to marginalize Gay Americans. Additionally, I think you do this to garner attention.
3)Your posts always attack Gay Americans and our supporter’s. Never people who are against Gay Marriage and Polygamy. Your silence is like you condone their idiotic posts.
4)You used to include incent in your obsessive rants, but, have dropped it from your posts. I believe it’s because it’s too extreme for you to include in your narcissistic attempt to remain respectable to the hater crowd.

Those are the key reasons why I’m certain that you are a very lonely, impotent, bigoted, hateful and deceitful person. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that you live a very solitary and emotionally unfulfilling life.

Thats right those slim sockers are all GOP, Republican and tea party members in them Southern states.

Didn't I say those yellow belled "rebels" who killed real Americans during the civil war aren't worth the glue that holds thier heads on with.

Anyone connected to this threat to her needs to be FIRED at once!

Then Sue the hell out of the HICK-Backwards college!

The University of North Carolina has threatened to expel a female student Landen Gambill for "intimidating" her alleged rapist by talking to the media.

She only talked about the fact that she was assaulted, Gambill hasn't named her alleged rapist, and says she's done nothing wrong in talking to the press.

1)Lots of posters here harp on same sex marriage but they're not interested same sex marriage for themselves.

2)Relax Fruitcake.

3)Your posts attack me.

4)I believe "incent" (incest) marriage should be allowed.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn you're an angry little sh!t.

I support marriage equality for same sex, incest and poly. For everyone who is in love and wants a family. You do not. So don't call me a bigot, bigot.

Relax twinkletoes.

That wasn't an argument, it was a slam.

At any rate, the man who beats polygamy to death is hardly capable of recognizing a valid argument.

It could also be a valid question to raise in the debate, one that seems to evoke mixed emotions among SSM supporters.
2)You continually call Gay Americans and our supporter’s derogatory names. This is a typical hater tactic to marginalize Gay Americans. Additionally, I think you do this to garner attention.
As do some supporters of SSM towards those who oppose it.
3)Your posts always attack Gay Americans and our supporter’s. Never people who are against Gay Marriage and Polygamy. Your silence is like you condone their idiotic posts.
That's not true, Frankie has expressed support of SSM, and criticized some who have oppossed it.
4)You used to include incent in your obsessive rants, but, have dropped it from your posts. I believe it’s because it’s too extreme for you to include in your narcissistic attempt to remain respectable to the hater crowd.
Is incest, at least same sex, that far removed from same sex first cousins?
Those are the key reasons why I’m certain that you are a very lonely, impotent, bigoted, hateful and deceitful person. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that you live a very solitary and emotionally unfulfilling life.
Frankie seems like he'd be fun at a party, doesn't appear bigotted. I don't think you have a fair assessment of him.

Polygamy Waiting in the Wings While Supreme Court Addresses the Definition of Marriage

Posted By Bruce Hausknecht On August 21, 2012 @ 2:24 pm In Blogs,Judicial Issues,Marriage | Comments Disabled

If you believe that the Constitution requires that a man be allowed to marry another man, or a woman be allowed to marry another woman, then why shouldn’t a man be able to have four wives?

That’s what a federal lawsuit going on in Utah claims.(My earlier coverage is here [1].) And it’s based on the same 2003 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Lawrence v. Texas [2], that every argument for same-sex marriage – as well as a handful of court decisions – have used for justification. Lawrence, as you may recall, threw out a Texas criminal sodomy statute as an unconstitutional violation of the “right of privacy,” the same “right” that was also used in 1973 in Roe v. Wade to constitutionalize abortion.

[3]A federal judge has refused to dismiss [4] a Utah lawsuit (Brown v. Herbert [5]) that claims that polygamy is a guaranteed privacy right under the U.S. Constitution. The most recent court order did not address the merits of the constitutional arguments involved in the claim, but only the technical issue of “standing,” which boils down to whether the challenger has really been “injured” in a constitutional sense, sufficient to invoke the authority of the courts to get involved in the dispute.

The polygamy case will now proceed to a trial or some other kind of decision on the merits of the case, but against the backdrop of several marriage-related cases that have already been appealed to (but not yet been accepted by) the Supreme Court. The upcoming term, starting on the first Monday in October, has the potential to be a marriage blockbuster. We’re waiting to hear if the high court will accept any of the following: the Hollingsworth v. Perry case (the California Marriage Amendment, a/k/a Prop 8), the federal Defense of Marriage Act appeals from the 1st, 2nd and 9th Circuits, and the Arizona state employee domestic partner benefit case entitled Brewer v. Diaz.

Although same-sex marriage advocates are fond of saying that this fundamental clash over the definition of marriage is all about them, it’s obvious that it’s not. Same-sex marriage is only the current issue. Polygamy, group marriage and who knows what else, are waiting in the wings.

Either marriage means what it’s always meant, or it will end up meaning whatever the next interest group wants it to mean.

And in the end, it will have no meaning at all.

You beat Same sex marriage to death, thought I'd shake up the discussion a little! Mix it up! It was so boring.

Why does that make you angry? Polygamy deserves the same respect as same sex marriage, no?

Bottom line. I support marriage equality, you do not.

The way I see it is that with the advent of same sex marriage, marriage has been redefined. There is no turning back.

Society is "evolving". Whether it's good or bad remains to be seen. But I think it's natural.

I don't mind, I like love and all that family stuff. Everyone deserves a shot at a happy family. Marriage is good for society. When I see a happy family, I like it! Whether they be same sex opposite sex, poly, or yes, even incest marriage families.

It's just logical that if marriage is redefined, we should make an equal redefinition that includes everyone. Most of these jackasses disagree. They are hypocrites.

They assume since I don't attack posters against ssm, that I don't support ssm. But the fact is I don't like hypocrites and posters like you are not as hypocritical as they are, not by a long shot.

Good references to polygamy! It's just like everyone else, if you get to know a loving poly family, It's hard to be against whatever makes them happy.

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.
I know you are saying that, you are free to have all the opinions you want to have, but there is not a single fact backing you up

go get the fact, get one state to recognize Poly, and it cannot be a state that does not recognize Same sex Marriage or that will disprove your argument

you are free to have all the opinions you want, and we are free to laugh at you about it

But you can’t claim that A ( SSM ) leads to B ( poly ) much less C ( your sister ) or D ( your goat ) until you have a single fact of a same sex marriage state recognizing Poly, and even then you would have to show how one led to the other

and remember if Utah or any state that does not recognize SSM recognizes poly you argument just got flushed down the toilet

The Brown case is working against you, because that is happening in a state that does not recognize SSM, so you cannot say one led to the other.

In your opinion, not in reality.

There is no requirement to make any and all changes to every law because one change is logical and sensible.

A civil right cannot be denied to one group ONLY because you are afraid that another group might someday push their cause.

Sorry, that's not rational, and it's not constitutional.
