and again, my friend, i have not stated where i stand on poly marriage. this is not the forum for that discussion so i will not comment on poly marriage.
laws are not passed based on "what ifs" (your slippery slope). they cannot be since the future is unknown. perhaps if you could mathmatically prove that any of your red flags will definetly occur and when, then you might be able to say your slippery slope will happen. but, since that is impossible to predict, to quote my son "ya got nuttin".

If the other laws against polygamy were repealed but prop 8 stayed in force would polygamy be legal in California? No? Why not? Because prop 8 forbids it! Duh!
Prop 8 discriminates against poly the same as it does against same sex marriage. Or else it would say marriage is "only men and women" But it doesn't say that it says marriage is "only ONE man and ONE Woman"
if you think prop 8 discriminates against poly marriages, then, please, by all means, do something about it. have at it. it's not up to me to stop you since i as a private citizen don't get to vote on civil rights.

good luck.

You're angry. Anyone can see that.

I support marriage equality. You do not. So climb down off your high horse and help Jizzy ("just the facts") troll, he's real bad at it.

And he's very mad at me, just like you!

While four West Covina, California city council member's sat glued to there seats and took repeated verbal attacks from voting residents for there own FAILURE to stop what took place Feb. 05, 2013.

Steve Herfert of a well known Racists Gang who operates in West Covina, the remaining four council members are scared S it Less of the repercussion's.

The mayor S. Sanderson babbled and rambled during her time at the microphone, there was a yellow streak starting at the top of her blonde head and ran down her back, her eyes fluttered and bounced around clearly she is NOT councilmember material.

Mike Touhey didn't have the guts to be seen in public but he was there at the meeting April 16, 2013. He hid in the shadow's in the back dark corner of the West Covina city council chamber.

The waddling yellow rag writer, George Ogden didn't appear at the West Covina city council meeting April 16, 2013 - I suspect he hasn't disgraced the council chambers ever since he wrote a article in the SGVxaminer.com newspaper defending his actions and of Steve Herfert.

My "slippery slope" will slip us right into marriage equality.

I support marriage equality. You do not.

I am doing something about it. Trying to reform your bigotry. Just like you think you are doing. But you are not. You are just promoting more of the same. Marriage equality only for groups you approve of.

great! we'll have that valuable piece of paper - nothing else matters as that would mean we'd have to care about your personal opinion for those "looks" to matter.

see, here in america, we all can think feel or believe any way we see fit. we just can't cross the line and affect someone else's rights with those thoughts feelings or beliefs. isn't that cool how that works here? we all get to decide for ourselves what we think about something and it doesn't matter to anyone else!

You give him too much credit, I don’t think he gives a single crap. His only interest in Poly, is how he can use it to attack those in favor of same sex marriage, he is using those people, and will toss them in the garbage when he is done with them

Overturning prop 8 will make one less pesky law against poly. And that fact just chaps your ass!

Dear SSMers

I am puzzled by your attitudes regarding legal polygamy/plural marriage. They seem to range from outright hostility to tepid support. "Marriage equality" is the mantra of the movement, yet there is a strong reluctance to include polygamy. Why? A seldom mentioned yet obvious objective within the movement is to shatter the monogamous conjugal (husband and wife) marital standard forever. To fundamental alter the very legal concept as a unique privileged union of one man and one woman as husband and wife. It stands to reason once that's changed, ssm is not the only logical path.

Polygamy is a valid form of marriage throughout time and place, far, far older than SSM, and more widely practiced. Why shouldn't it be considered? Is there a fear that to embrace it would undermine the SSM movement? A reluctance to share the spotlight? A sense of superiority?

I don't want to do those things, I simply want to discuss marriage equality.

If I were inclined to go out and gather signatures and hire lawyers, it would be to get rid of cowards like you who disrespect disabled veterans simply for the sake of trying insult one on a silly topix thread.
