I second that. So that's two votes against xolo. We win, xolo loses. Easy!
But we are in California, votes don't count.

Then find a forum where others are interested in it. This one isn't it. Oh, and please Sally, before you start your tired routine, a lack of interest does not imply disapproval or approval. Play your routine somewhere else.
I think you are worried that polygamy marriage will cause people to say ssm opened the door to what was predicted. Personally I don't care who marries as long as it's fully equal. I think the person with split personalities should be able to marry within, who does it hurt? Should I have capitalized ssm?

Polygamy activists have spoken of their hopes that the Supreme Court's landmark rulings on gay marriage could lead to a breakthrough for their cause too.

The top court in the U.S. yesterday ruled that the federal government must recognise same-sex marriages, and allowed judges to overrule a ban on gay marriage in California.

And some polygamists predict that the decisions will 'blaze the marriage equality trail', saying that 'the nuclear family is not the majority any more'.

The Supreme Court decision had nothing to do with the self-esteem of gays. Nor did it have anything to do with telling children things. You really should study up on how law is practiced. It's obvious from your posts you're currently clueless.

F*CK your stupid bible. It's irrelevant, just like you.
Thanks for proving the ruling opens the door for inevitable intolerance towards people of faith who repudiate bigotry. Now maybe you can focus on slowing down the high rate of std's and mental illness in the gay world, let's see if marriage helps...lol.

Was that why he was elected? What I'm saying is most people are fed up with voting on propositions here in CA.

Good article. Of course those here against true marriage equality won't read it. It's "off topic". Poly marriage is off topic in a marriage thread about marriage. Says so in the rainbow handbook.

New York is going to be miserable this week with the heat and humidity. Living in the SF bay area half the year, when I go to NY and get off the plane it's like running into a wet wall of discomfort.

They most certainly do count, but only on issues that are constitutional.

LOL!!!! That's a good one!!! I love it when fundies try and spin their self created persecution!!! Nothing funnier!!!!

BTW, if you tried employing comprehension, you would realize that my disparaging remark was aimed at the stupid book, not those that believe it in. But don't let facts get in the way of your persecution!!!!!

Found on another thread. Amusing.(Please don't shoot the messenger. I didn't say it. Don't go postal on me).

Gotta give credit where it is due. That's a good civil answer without all your usual nonsense and angry ranting.

CA needs to check the constitutionality of ballot measures before they are put on the ballot, not after they receive a winning vote.

And I think you suffer from the same illness as Rizzo. A delusional belief that you think you know other people's stances on issues when in fact they haven't uttered a word one way or the other.

Oh, and just fyi, I don't "worry" about non-existent events. Not the day when hundreds of thousands of people will inexplicably be clambering to have multiple marriages instead of one, or the imaginary second coming, or any of the other bullshyt events you people obsess over. We leave all that worrying to you and the other sheeple.
