Please explain how this is not off-topic before you complain about others being off topic :)
You hijack every thread and change it into anti God. I'm sure a lot of gay folks believe in a higher power, why is it so important for you to do that?

I do grant you that not all people of religion are the problem, only those that try and legislate their personal beliefs onto others.

Those are the anti-Americans we need to guard against.

I promise to never bring the subject up again, as long as no one else does. You don’t mention your religion, your God, your bible or your belief and how they apply to others, and neither will I. But if you are free to being up your religion…. So am I

The one exception to that is Mike, I will bring it up every time he brings up another off topic subject... but that is just for fun.

http://www.religioustolerance.org/polylaw.htm
State laws banning polygamy may be unconstitutional, since they are based primarily on moral grounds. In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling in Lawrence v. Texas which might have some bearing on polygamy. The case involved two homosexual males who had been convicted of same-sex behavior in private. At the time, this was a criminal act in Texas
Sure! The state of polygamy rights is way behind same sex but on the same path, there's no denying it. And there's no denying legalizing same sex marriage benefits poly rights.

This is good! Full marriage equality for everyone someday for sure!

Do you think the decline in the power of religion in America will be good for polygamy too?
I honestly don’t know …… maybe

because it both takes away the largest opponents , but also takes away the biggest advocate of it. Hard to say, time will tell I suppose.

I always liked the weather in the bay area, but I suppose I like it cooler than some do.

I lived there for 2 years ( military ) in my youth, but I do find a reason to go there once a year or so.

What's good for marriage equality is good for polygamy and incest marriage.

No, they don't have any relationship, they are friends.

Anyway, I wouldn't define it as skinny anyway, slim, not skinny isn't it? What does being flea bitten have anything to do with this?

You think fleas carry diseases - YOU BIG JOKE GO TO HELL AND ROT THERE!

Most people can't count?

1=1=2

See. Not that hard.

But seriously, most polygamists seem to be straight deeply religious folks, so I think that the fact that straight couples can marry with impunity right now is the biggest boost to the legality of marrying multiples.

You don't hear many gay folks wanting to marry many at a time. Seems to be a religious fundamentalist heterosexual thing.

Only the anti-gay crowd is calling for polygamy and marrying close relatives. They seem to have a fascination with it.

Fortunately, their numbers are dwindling.
