What don't you understand about "a man and a woman"? It's a very simple concept really, in addition to preventing same sex marriage prop 8 also prevents poly marriage.
Sure there are other laws against poly, same as there are or have been against same sex. But we're talking prop 8 here as you jackasses like to rudely remind me every time you're at a loss for an effective argument which is always.
Prop 8 discriminates against poly marriage as surely as it does against SSM. Don't hog all the victimhood.
Laws against polygamy predate laws against same-sex marriage by a century. What you're implying is that if Prop. 8 had not passed and if DOMA hadn't been legislated, then polygamy would be legal. And that isn't the case.

But none of that stuff for polygamists in VV la la land?
Imagine if MLK was like you. Equality for his race only. All other races need not climb that mountain.
Life in VV La La Land sucks for unapproved groups. Let em eat cake.
By George, I think you've finally gotten it! Polygamy isn't my issue. I don't support it.

No that's not what I am implying. You are wrong, where did you get that idea?

I am stating that prop 8 prohibits polygamy as much as it does SSM.
You disagree?

MLK you ain't! He fought for freedom for all races, not just his favorite one.

So you are saying marriage equality should not be for polyamorists too? Is that equality? No of course it's not.

So, the bottom line is you don't really support marriage equality. You just want more of the same. Rights only for marriages you approve of.

It is CHILD ABUSE when Government licensed organizations DISCRIMINATE against LITTLE CHILDREN who believe membership in the Boy Scouts should be limited to boys who are morally straight. Please write your Congressman! DEMAND the tax exempt status of the Boy Scouts of America be ENDED NOW.

There's no need to make that distinction, given that it is a sex crime, not a consensual act.

So you don't accept adoption as society accepts adoption. Adoptive parents are not parents in your world. They are less than. Be sure to tell that to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
I accept adoptive parents exactly as society and social science does.

As I stated, they are one of several default options, specified as so by the word 'adoptive' preceding the word parent.

According to numerous broad and long term studies they fail to measure up to parents on the average.

You are the one denying the distinctions and the broad based disadvantages to the child because "children are adaptive".

Here is the disappointing reality of all this gay twirl.
A ss couple will only ever be only a duplicated HALF of marriage.
Nothing can change that.
You can't force people to deny that reality.
A law or a piece of paper cannot change it.
The result can ONLY be another fruitless gay encounter.

I am married. We are both husbands. Nothing you can say can ever matter to those facts.
But I kind of enjoy that it bothers you so much.
I see no difference between what you said and I said.

Care to clarify?

Clearly you need to do your research on pedophilia. We all know these answers already.
Come back when you are better prepared for a debate.
Honey, why don't you simply educate me?

I'd really love to hear it from you.

If you read my post it would be clear. There are only pedophiles. There is no distinction between those pedophiles who molest only boys and those who molest only girls. Legally, there is no difference and medically/psychologically there is no difference.
There is to the boys and the girls.

And they are distinct pedophiles.

Surely it would be wise to label the gender danger a pedophile represents?

Or are you suggesting we leave a child at risk to be politically correct?

How can it prohibit something that was already against the law? That's like saying Californians passed a proposition to outlaw murder.

Then should we distinguish between Catholic pedophiles and non-Catholic pedophiles? Should we distinguish football coach pedophiles and non-football coach pedophiles?

There is nothing politically correct about the current laws and medical diagnoses.

What you're suggesting is ridiculous. You know it; I know it; everybody reading your posts knows it.

Give up, hater. Go back to "church school".

Maybe this will help you to understand... I support marriage equality for same-gender couples and opposite-gender couples. I do not support polygamy.

Your continuous and contrived astonishment of my position on this issue does not sway me.

Many states defense of marriage acts prohibit same sex marriage which was already prohibited.

I'm sorry if you feel polyamorists are horning in on your suffering, but they are suffering exactly the same as you. And they deserve the same relief that you demand.

I think that you insisting that pedophiles who molest only boys and never girls are not gay is ridiculous. But PC is ridiculous so that's that.
