You do realize that the Brown's lawsuit is NOT asking for legal recognition of polygamy, don't you? It's not about decriminalizing polygamy, either. Geez, pal..... do some research and stop listening to idots like Rush and Glenn.
Yes X-Box, I do realize that. However that does not preclude the possibly that after that they, or others will seek legal recognition.

You used them as an example of polygamy being decriminalized. They are not. Your speculation as to what the Browns may or may not do in the future is purely speculative.

So, I'll ask again. Polygamy is being decriminalized?

Note: Since the Browns are not asking for decriminalization, try a REAL answer.

Glad you finally agree even if not so much. It's always better to err on the side of liberty and equality.

Why bother addressing your analogy? Oh wait, I already did. I called it out for being dumb. Just like you. I eagerly await your next bumper sticker of no substance.
We call that response 'scoffing masquerading as logic'. Nothing more than the opinion of a lazy idiot.

Perhaps you could rise to a reasoned rebuttal? Maybe your friends could help you with some brain Viagra to rise to the occasion???

I'm still waiting for a passionate discourse.

Snicker.

Your anaolgy is SO stupid it doesn't need to be addressed for the 50th time. The first time you used it I LAUGHED at "like a walnut tree trying to hang apples" so hard. When have you ever seen a walnut tree try to hang apples? Are you on some bad acid or something? That's not an analogy... it's an abomination of intellect.
And you don't even have enough sense to be embarrassed for writing it.
So you think my analogy was literally speaking of trees moving?

That explains your being stupefied.

You are a few leaves short of being a tree...

Legal matters such as those that can apply to all sorts of relationships, and the would have the same interest. Siblings can own property together, and may have inheritance issues or concerns, yet are not allowed to marry. Again remove the sexual aspect and what is left. What makes marriage a distinct relationship worthy of state recognition?

SALT LAKE CITY — Joe Darger and his wife, Vicki, walked through the Capitol shaking hands with lawmakers like any other citizen lobbyist.
What exactly they’re asking their lawmakers to do is a little more unique: decriminalize polygamy.
“The way we are persecuting a particular religious group of people is wrong,” Joe Darger said.“It’s morally wrong, it’s ethically wrong, and we need to look at it. It hasn’t worked for 150 years and we need to change it.”
Darger, a polygamist with three wives, Vicki, Valerie and Alina, is hoping to get lawmakers to start considering the idea of decriminalization. He and Vicki came to the Utah State Capitol carrying copies of a book they wrote about their family, entitled “Love Times Three,” and handed them to lawmakers who stopped to chat with them.
“Right now, it is illegal for me to purport to be married,” Darger told FOX 13.“Simply by me claiming her as my wife, I’m considered a third-degree felon.”
The Darger’s political action comes as a lawsuit is winding its way through U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City that could do the same thing. Reality TV polygamist Kody Brown and his four wives, who star in the cable show “Sister Wives,” are challenging Utah’s ban on polygamy. A federal judge could rule on the case any day now.
“We’re not looking for legal recognition. We’re not looking for multiple marriage licenses,” Darger said.“That kind of concern isn’t out there. We’re just saying let’s decriminalize a group of people who aren’t criminals.”
Vicki Darger said she hopes lawmakers will at least consider her family’s perspective.
“We don’t really expect people to morally agree with us, but we do hope they will see our stand and what we’re committed to and help us to fight for our rights and stand up for the rights that we should have, as every citizen has,” she said.
With the “Sister Wives” case pending, anti-polygamy activists are also speaking up. Earlier that same day, the newly formed “Sound Choices Coalition” was handing out fliers to lawmakers urging them to uphold Utah’s anti-bigamy laws.
The Dargers insist that if polygamy were to be decriminalized, people would feel more free to report abuses that have been associated with their lifestyle.
“There’s so much secrecy that goes on simply because it’s against the law,” Vicki Darger said.
Lawmakers FOX 13 approached about the idea of decriminalizing polygamy quickly refused to comment. At a recent availability for reporters, House Speaker Rebecca Lockhart, R-Provo, said there is just no appetite amongst the body to even consider the idea.
Darger, who is a Republican delegate in Herriman, said he wasn’t giving up.
“We’re under no illusions,” he said.“This is a long battle. It’s not if, but when. But part of this is a political process as well, and the legislature can change that — and should change it

For those who don't know, "Frankie Rizzo" is a troll flying under false colors. He is really against gay marriage, and attacks anybody who is in favor of it, using the red herring of polygamy. He claims he's for polygamy, but I'd bet he's never, ever posted anything about the subject in a polygamy forum. He just wants to troll. And he is so dumb, that he thinks I'm talking about a fish when I say, "red herring".

Stupid, the ability to have children is not part of the definition of marriage, so your analogy doesn't hold water.

Guess your brain is made out of two different sets of tissue that don't communicate, and that's why you are so dumb.
Do you think you should have been aborted?
