The arguments placed before the courts by proponents of same-sex marriage have never included plural marriage.
Many people who fear same-sex marriage have used that tired, old refrain--"If we allow same-sex couples to marry, where will it end?"
THEY are the ones bringing up polygamy.
The arguments in favor of same-sex marriage ARE NOT an natural leap to arguments in favor of polygamy. They have NOTHING to do with one another, other than they both discuss marriage.
Polygamists would be more likely to use heterosexual marriage rights to defend their arguments in court. This is especially true with the Defense of Marriage Act, which clearly prohibits same-sex marriage as not being recognized by the federal government.
Opposite-sex couples already have the rights and protections of marriage. Polygamists would naturally use those rights and protections that are already in existence to argue their case.
The DOMA prevents polygamy equally to preventing same sex marriage. I know you don't like it that polygamy is equal to same sex marriage but that's your problem fruitcake.

You don't have the market cornered on discrimination, quit acting as if you do.

On one thing I think we can all agree. That Bruno clown is a third rate jackass!

Am I right? Anyone disagree?

When all else fails, and it always will, invoke the "you're in the closet" meme.

Who knows, maybe it'll stick, just like the proverbial hooker's panties when she throws them against the wall.

Polygamists were held in check by the same standard as everyone else, one man and one woman as husband and wife. Now that that standard is no more in a few states, they have an in.

Another crooked COP.

Bong the Gong and get this mess over with.

A South Lake Tahoe police officer pleaded guilty May 22, 2013 Wednesday to multiple counts of witness tampering and obstruction of an official proceeding.

A three-year, multi-agency investigation involving the FBI led to 44-year-old John Gerald Polandís arrest in January 2013 on five counts of witness tampering.

There are certain beliefs that we all have--dogmas, as you refer to them.
You believe that these dogmas are blinders--that they only allow us to see things in a specific way.
Where did I say that? I said YOU are living life behind blinders, which is quite evident with your denial of anything which doesn't support your position.

However, when your dogma includes a belief that a small, but key aspect of my character (i.e.: homosexuality) is a sin or a sign of brokenness; that it is unnatural and an abomination, then I will not entertain these beliefs as rational or scientifically based.
Umm, when have I have I ever said homosexuality is a "sin" or sign of "brokenness"?
