I said "Fundamentalists have a substantial first amendment right to marry according to the dictates of their faith" and your response is above. Now you are saying I'm lying about your response. Priceless.

By polyamorists.

Are you now trying to say equal protection doesn't apply if there are not enough people being denied it? Priceless.

Wha? Whatever. Glad you seem to support legalizing fundie type poly marriage. I do too.

Would you place a limit on the number of wives a Mormon man could marry? If so, how many and why?

What prevents Israel from becoming a fully democratic country?

But it is more than just a falling birth rate, it is the loss of cultural identity when broken homes fail to pass on the heritage they represent.
It is why wiser SCOTUS rulings noted that marriage and family is foundational to the health of a society.

nothing at all to back up your pure bullshit?
let me show you my shocked face...:0
I suppose if you deny facts in front of your face, then that doesn't leave many options...

You are consistent though...

why would i care about that?

remember, first we would need to change hundreds of laws and benefit plans, if not more, to make this kind of marriage truly equal...

this mythical movement for polygamy you mentioned but can not now seem to find hasn't made any moves in that direction, have they?(if they exist at all..)

And the same year DADT was eliminated, sexual assault in the military skyrocketed.
More men were assaulted than women.
Despite the fact that 98% of men are heterosexual, and only 2% at most are gay.
hmmm...you didnt think that one out well, did you?
woodtick57 wrote:
<quoted text>more assaults were reported, you mean. often many of the victims were gay, and now they could actually rely on their own military to back them up, so they thought, it didn't turn out that way, though...
lots of sexual assaults in prison also, is almost everyone in prison gay?
ytou seem to be going way out of your way to paint homosexuals ina bad light, why is that? are you like the guys in the military that are hiding their latent homosexuality and thus take it out on the gay guys there?
Another example of how you handle facts...

1. Not sure what you mean by your first sentence. However, it is estimated that the actual rate is much higher. Are you saying gays were raping gays, and now they are reporting it?

2. You are attempting to equate men locked up with no options to a mixed gender military where leaves and outside contact regularly occur. A big difference.

3. I'm simply pointing out facts. You clearly want that hidden because it exposes the risk of gays in the military. Do you really think that is a wise way to deal with the problem.

I'm wondering where your concern for the integrity and effectiveness of our military comes in?

you should get out into the real world more and you'd see that.
then you wouldn't have to rely on others' words that you think might possibly be correct...(with no credit for using them...)
Oh please, enlighten me about the real world.

How does a ss couple 'hit all of those'?????

Snicker.

What do you expect from woodtick, a moron who says incest and polygamy have a right to marry but only after they are legally married?

It angers a lot of black people.
But the icing on the moron cake is when they say the civil rights movement is analogous to the gay marriage movement but the movement for polygamy is not.
The duplicity exposes them, a very ugly sight...

perhaps the fact that the words you stole from someone else without credit were absolutely false because of the bigoted incorrect statement at the end...

let me guess, that was the only part that was yours? seems when you try to use your own words all that comes out is bullshit...
