Lighten up, gezzzzz you hold impossible positions and expect not to be teased a little about it?
Everyone ( except you ) knows that prop 8 didnít change polygamy laws at all, and the overturn of prop 8 will put things back where they were, Same Sex Marriage being legal, and Poly still illegal.
Prop 8 will get overturned, that is now an inevitability, either the supreme court will do it ( expected ) or another proposition will be put forward in California and it will strike prop 8 down easily.
It is just a matter of time
But it wonít change the laws on polygamy, that will have to be a separate issue, with separate measures and separate legal action.
I will even support it when it does come,( more jobs for more lawyers )
Oh you are just teasing? Silly me!

Prop 8 banned polygamy EQUALLY to banning SSM.

The end.

The crazies chanted and screamed: Rise Up, O God, and Save Us From Ourselves.

Yes there is.... the guarantee is equal protection, not equal rights. The State can limit marriage to whatever group they so choose IF..... IF there is a legitimate State interest in doing so.
Why can't you grasp this? What is wrong with you? We've told you at least 50 times and it still hasn't sunk in. Are you retarded?
Someone who says that "marriage is a man and a woman" doesn't ban polygamy as well as same sex marriage asks if I am retarded!

Priceless.

On February 7, 2012, in a 2Ė1 decision, a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel affirmed Walker's decision declaring the Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional.
Existing laws (federal and states) don't recognize SSM as a valid marriage.

Wrong, polygamy was already banned before prop 8 and will continue to be banned after prop 8 is overturned.

Ok lets get simple

In what way did Prop 8 victimize you personally?

What right did you have that you lost when prop 8 was passed?

The leading Communist calling himself Karl Rove to speak at a California GOP convention Friday, Mar. 1, 2013.

Is an unpopular figure among Republican volunteers, after he attacked the crazy Tea Party (copperheads) and their grassroots conservatism.

The Republican party in California is in the gutter and heading down to the sewer plant fast.

Right. But it will be one less law against polygamy. How can you argue otherwise?

When did I say overturning prop 8 will legalize polygamy, liar Big D?

A blow to equal rights is a blow to everyone. Maybe you don't fully understand that?

Prop 8 victimized polygamy and SSM EQUALLY. And it victimized us all in restricting rights.

DOMA is equally discriminatory against polyamorists wishing to marry.

By eliminating prop 8 there will be one less law against polygamy, no matter how hard you try to spin it that there won't be.

"A" male and "A" female. Does it say "males and females" dummy? No it says "A" male and "A" female as in one of each only.
