Big D! I made a huge batch of my world famous chili for the gay rights rally at my next door neighbors house a few months ago and about 40 gays and lesbians loved it! They didn't ridicule my thoughts on marriage equality at all. They raved about the chili.

You should be so nice.

And what does the number of people in jail for bigamy have to do with the fact that the federal government considers marriage "one man and one woman" only? Some people are in jail for bigamy, that's not enough for you?
You made the claim... the burden of proof is yours. How many people are currently in jail for bigamy?

Instead of running your stupid thoughts on TOPIX, why don't you pick up a textbook and educate yourself? You seem to be completely ignorant about logic, among other things.

You tell me, it's your dumb argument against true marriage equality.

How many people have been convicted of bigamy toots? Be sure to find that too in your exhausted research on wiki!

If you chili is world famous, why have I not heard of it

I do like Chili though :)

Did you attack all those people for not screaming at the top of their lungs in favor of polygamy?

Maybe that is why they were nice

As I've repeatedly told you, I am not interested in a poly marriage for myself. I just want to discuss marriage equality for poly people in this forum of tolerant and diverse jackasses and hypocrites.
So let's cut through your bulls!t Mr. Tolerance and Diversity, do you think poly should be allowed? Yes? No? Why?
The answer is not "Are you stuk on stooooopid?"

Once again, so what how long it takes?

I am sure many bigots said the same thing about SSM. If you'd notice all of your arguments are the same as SSM detractors.

So is that your best argument against marriage equality for poly? It will take a long time?

It will roll exactly like SSM did. And in as short a time, maybe shorter thanks to same sex be generally accepted and respected now.

Poly MARRIAGE deserves the same consideration and respect as same sex MARRIAGE.

Your arguments of the day seem to be the laws against polygamy are lightly enforced and prison is rare, not enough people want it, and it will take a long time before it is legalized if at all.

They're all bogus, reactionary and dumb.

If the federal government recognizes polygamy it will be much easier to repeal the state laws against it. In CA, one of these state laws is PROPOSITION EIGHT.

When PROPOSITION EIGHT is gone, the CA laws against polygamy will be easier to deal with. If PROPOSITION EIGHT is still in force polygamy and same sex marriage will not be allowed in CA.

And there's your topic PROPOSITION 8.

Don't you agree Miss "OFF TOPIC!!!!" straw Man?
