Polygamy, aka men or women with many partners has always been frowned upon by society, and like homosexuality it is a form of vice, excess, perversion, subversion, and decadence.
This nation is going to hell, quickly.
Western societies primarily have frowned upon it, but not all parts of the world. Polygyny, is far more common than u think. Americans practice serial monogamy.

Yes. It is not wise to announce you are a polygamist. Since it is punishable by prison. So we have limited knowledge of how many polygamists there are in the USA.

It's safe to assume it's more common than most people believe due to it's illegality. And of course it has been very common throughout world history.

I see no problem with a happy poly family. It shouldn't be illegal. The only reason it is is because the Supreme Court doesn't like it.And bigotry against Mormons and Islam.

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.
Well, when the polygamists of the country rise up to take their case before the courts, you can lead their cause.

And no one said that the LGBT community has the market cornered on discrimination. There are plenty of examples of others who are discriminated against.

We are a united group who is seeking specific goals.

Other groups are working on their own projects.

Umm, when have I have I ever said homosexuality is a "sin" or sign of "brokenness"?
OK... Looks like we're getting somewhere...

If you don't believe that homosexuality is a sin or sign of brokenness, then I guess we can count on your support of same-sex marriage.

Thanks in advance...

That goal is the elimination of monogamous conjugal, as in husband and wife, sole legal definition and/or standard in this country. Why does it matter after that who marries who, or doesn't?

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.
The standard of marriage being comprised of TWO PEOPLE is supported by Same-sex marriage advocates.

At no point in any court argument made by proponents of same-sex marriage have we asked for marriage to include more than two people. We've not asked that marriage be allowed between adults and minors, humans and animals, humans and inanimate objects, etc.

One man, one woman; one man, one man; one woman, one woman... That's what we are supporting.

It is deceitful for you to imply that same-sex marriage proponents are in favor polygamy.

No one said you asked for polygamy. It is very obvious you did not. You are a hypocrite.

Is that really different from what I wrote:

"That goal is the elimination of monogamous conjugal, as in husband and wife, sole legal definition and/or standard { of marriage} in this country."
At no point in any court argument made by proponents of same-sex marriage have we asked for marriage to include more than two people.
Ohhhhhkay.
We've not asked that marriage be allowed between adults and minors, humans and animals, humans and inanimate objects, etc.
No one is seriously proposing marriage involving minors, or animals. So let's dispense with that.
One man, one woman; one man, one man; one woman, one woman... That's what we are supporting.
Again, the elimination of the sole legal definition/standard of marriage as a monogamous union of husband AND wife. The essence of what I stated the goal of the movement is.
It is deceitful for you to imply that same-sex marriage proponents are in favor polygamy.
No deceit.... I stated the obvious, elimination of the sole legal definition/standard of marriage as a monogamous union of husband and wife.

Once that is done, why does it matter who marries who, or doesn't marry who, as long as its between consenting adults?
