The California measure or bill/law calls for revoking the tax-exempt status of youth groups that discriminate against participants on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identification.

The Boy Scouts of America discriminates against children who believe membership should be limited to boys who are morally straight. The Government should repeal the BSA tax exempt status.

No need to make assumptions, your hostility towards polygamy is obvious.

Those two statements are perfect evidence that ss couples do not equate to natural parents. It even puts into doubt their ability to care for children.
The rest of your post is pure denial and gay twirl.
So you make an unsubstantiated claim and then quit. Brilliant.

Dismissed.

You are lying when you say I have been caught in any lies and you know it. It's your M.O. When cornered, you lie.
Five posts ago:

"your hostility towards polygamy is obvious."

Lie.

Next.

What does marriage equality for one group mean to marriage equality for another group? Are you stupid?
No, you are. You think any "change" means anything goes. That's stupid and simplistic.

Your frame of reference is so skewed because your starting point is 1 man/1 woman marriage. Guess what - if you have ANY marriage, then the door is open, dumbass. It doesn't only open when you change something.

It's a simple concept really. When many states have decided heterosexuality is no longer relevant to marriage, why is monogamy still relevant?
Ask for help. Sound it out. Remember, there are no dumb posts! Only dumbass posters like yourself.
Why is it you struggle with that question and I don't?

Your statement is nonsensical on its face. There is no logical correlation. You might as well pick any other "then" statement:

If heterosexuality is no longer relevant to marriage, why is the welfare of children still relevant? Why is (anything) still relevant? What a stupid position.

And what is the purpose of monogamy? Faithfulness? I think polygamous families would argue they are faithful to each other.

You're out of your league.

Thank you for a great example;
Society for too long denied that Blacks were people because of their skin color.
Now we are attempting to deny that moms/dads are unique and significant roles.
Every person in existence has only ever one real mother and father. Never two, and always both.
You want to make them meaningless. A zero. Must make your mom and dad proud..
<quoted text>
I wasn't even trying. I don't need to.
Every person has only ONE mother and father. That is simple reality. Equating anyone else to that place is a default at the most. Claiming one is unnecessary is simply insanity.
You fail with marriage and family.
Honey that must suck.
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.

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.
Ha ha! You're a riot.

You don't get to decide "reality."

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.

How do you distinguish pedophiles who molest only boys from those who molest only girls?
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.

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.
Of course it does - but the main point of it was to discriminate against same sex marriage.

Throwing "one man and one woman" into that is as pointless as making laws against sharia law. It's a strain of extreme right-wingers who are scared of everything and trying to outlaw everything that isn't white, straight, and at least marginally "christian."

So, eliminating the gender part of "a man and a women" is justice and equality but eliminating the number part is stupid? Please explain.

Aw, don't hog all the victim hood, it's not all about you.

What a bigoted statement "the MAIN point". The MAIN point to you maybe but to polyamorists the main point is that it prohibits polygamy.
