Why is a loving marriage of three consenting adults a bad idea? Suppose you and two other guys all felt you wanted to marry and form a family? Why do you want to limit your options? Why not leave the possibility open?
There was a case described in the Advocate of three gay men wishing to marry. It was touching. I am rooting for them, why aren't you? If you got to know a happy poly family you'd have to have a very cold heart to wish to deny them rights that you enjoy.
Marriage is good for society. Even marriages you for whatever selfish reasons don't approve of.
Nicely said Frankie, I feel your love. Our resident authoritarians will never understand nor feel the love you have for freedom, because they lay awake at night worried that the people in the next trailer might be doing something they do not approve of.

That you argue so vehemently that prop 8 didn't also ban polygamy tells us all we need to know about your motives.
I really don't see the point otherwise.
Prop 8 says, "one man one woman" so clearly that means one man, two woman is illegal as is two men or two women.

Our resident authoritarians might as well argue that 1+1 doesn't equal 2.

Perhaps they have no motives and just like Christians are told by their mommies that there is a God, perhaps the mommies of authoritarians told them polygamy is wrong and now they will insist on it for the rest of their lives because no new information will get in to show them how wrong their mommy was about this.

Xavier Breath:"Redefining marriage to include same-sex couples would jettison the rationale and logic behind prohibitions on polygamous marriages," Not true.
ALAN: Prove it.
Xavier Breath:There are plenty of reasons for keeping polygamy illegal that have NOTHING to do with SSM.
ALAN: And just what, exactly, are those reasons?

One tiny problem.... Prop 8 did NOT say "one" man "one" woman.

<quoted text> So if it's okay for a man to marry another man based upon sexual appetite, what are you going to do about a man that's bisexual? Shouldn't he be able to marry another man and a woman to satisfy his sexual appetite? I mean, after all, it only make sense. I'm all for bisexual marriages and it should be the law of the land. There is a slight problem and that's if a bisexual marries another bisexual. If that happens, then you end up with a bisexual man marrying another bisexual man and you can have two other men and two women involved which means you end up with 6 people all married together. Or how about a bisexual man marrying a bisexual woman and the bisexual man also has a man as his wife and the bisexual woman has another woman as her husband. This really gets complicated, but it's only fair to consider all these possibilities and make allowances for each and every situation.
Let's hear it for bisexual marriages!
Let us hear it for freedom! Anything peaceful consenting adults want to do with other peaceful consenting adults is perfectly acceptable in our American Republic. People who have their heads up their ass's, authoritarians, hate freedom because they are terrified that someone might do something they are uncomfortable with. Authoritarians like those who want to limit the sex and the number of people one can marry. Each individual should make their one decision if they want to remain single or marry a man or a woman or a man AND a woman as well as two women, or two men. You have the right to make your own peaceful relationships with other consenting adults and our resident authoritarians have no right, although they have the power of the Government, to stop you.

This means that all of our authoritarians are morally bankrupt. The religious who want to stop gay marriage and the gays who want to stop polygamy are all equally morally bankrupt.

I checked with my gay cousin and both are used interchangeably these days. He said Miss Thing came first followed by Miss Thang. He said Miss Thing was started by white drag queens and Miss Thang was started by black drag queens. Whether he knows what he is talking about is irrelevant, I find both funny.

News Flash: polygamy was stopped a l-o-n-g time ago. It was illegal before Prop 8 and it remains illegal after Prop 8.

No. Prop 8 did NOT say one man and one woman only.
California’s Proposition 8 ballot measure defined marriage as one man and one woman.

2+2=5, prove that's wrong.

Prop 8 said marriage in California is a man and a woman. Did it say men and women, Miss thing? or did it say a man and a woman?
The web site where I went to load the exact language of Prop 8 is timing out. It is difficult to accept than anyone would suggest Prop 8 was not about limiting to, and defining Marriage as, one man/one woman.

Is this guy just being a troll?

Someone who has had no training in in cultural anthropology that thinks polygamy is a bad idea obviously has ulterior motives..... maybe even a compulsion to lie.

Does a law that simply states "marriage is a man and a woman only" allow polygamy Miss Thing?
Please answer, don't tell me I'm on drugs or brain dead or ignorant, just tell me yes or no. Thanks!
Isn't it just horrible that authoritarians like Xavier Breath will resort to telling people they are on drugs, brain dead or ignorant when they do not want to answer a question because answering it makes them look stupid.

If this discussion was moderated trolls like this would be banned from posting again.

Marriage is between one man and one woman, that's all. This country has so many protected classes, creating more lawsuits. It's getting out of hand, every one remember what happen to soddam and gamora? That's where it's headed, all we can do is pray for those who live alternative life styles.

Here's the ballot language:

Shall the California Constitution be changed to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry providing that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California?

Do you remember what happened in the North Pole at Santa's workshop the day after Christmas?
