That was my brand. Best cigarette in the world. Used to buy them on the ship when I was in the Navy for $1 a carton. Now a carton of Camels in NY costs $125! My brother smokes them. He'll go without a cigarette for a week if there's no Camel straights. Pun intended.

Why do racists call black people monkeys when monkeys have light skin, thin lips, straight hair and flat butts? I've always found that amusing.

Recommending someone stay on topic is hardly censoring the person.
Polygamy is perfectly on topic in any discussion of marriage equality. Why do you attempt to censor it?

You deny reality, but claim the ability to judge for God.
Actually, that's every post of yours I've seen for the last year. You do exactly that.

BTW, stupid, unlike you, parrots don't just engage in mindless repetition. They know how make up terms, and understand abstract concepts. Again, unlike you.
You're quite the imbecile, aren't you? Did you miss the abstract "Save me, Der Sphincter"?

What do we, as a society say, to the "tens of thousands of children" being raised by their OWN biological mother and father within the context of a plural marriage, that their parents are relegated to second class citizenship status because their marriage us not legally recognized?
I would tell them that they're better off outside the FLDS.

And they would tell you you'd be better off inside the FLDS.

If polygamy were allowed it would still be so rare you would never have to be offended by the sight of a happy poly family.

No, stupid, that's like saying things were when everybody could marry someone of the same race. The problem is the same race is not the same for everybody. Just like the same (or opposite) sex isn't the same for everybody.

Look at the topic.
"Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage"
Nothing about polygamy.

If you were talking about pumpkin pie recipes, and I said you should find a forum about that, that wouldn't be an attempt to censor you, moron. Forums have topics, posts about other topics are called "off topic".
So, why won't you just go to a forum about polygamy? Can't figure out how to find one?

The judge overturned Prop 8. Prop 8 banned polygamy as surely as it banned same sex marriage.

Typical of your greedy self to try and hog all the victimhood.

Polygamy deserves the same consideration and respect as same sex marriage.

Google his name. See what turns up. Is he qualified to preach to others about marriage? Decide for yourself.
KiMare Gregory Dale Kirschmann has been disgraced. He should be thoroughly ashamed. Pontificating about marriage after the life he has lived? I think not.
