We've already been through this. What makes you think I need your permission to discuss the topic or anything else?
You seriously don't think removing the ban on gay marriage will make it easier to remove the ban on polygamy some day?
By what logic do you insist that there will be no effect?
my bad, rhetorical

He has been given answers, he wants a public display of the "slipery slope" argument you so clearly pointed out.

he will not discuss same sex marrage in any way at all, he is 100% focused on poly, and no matter how many times that tactic fails him, he keeps at it.

I think we are looking at a learning disorder

I answered your question but I guess you have ADD
4. marriage above all else is a social contract. Inheritances, medical decisions, etc are all part of that contract. With polygamy, the lines of who gets what, who makes what decisions are blurred and lead to legal battles. Does one of the wives who is not the mother of one of the children in the marriage get to make medical decisions for that child is a prime example of why polygamy is illegal.
These are all rational, logical reasons why the slippery slope fallacy is moot. However, judging by your previous posts, intelligent logical debate is not your forte. Debating with a wall has better results.
same sex marriage and polygamy are two separate issues. and comparing them as equal is a fallacy..something you seem to use quite frequently.
as I said marriage is a social contract. Polygamy, besides a host of problems it raises, legal issues is the biggest.
The slippery slope is not a fallacy. It is real. If you were better educated and smarter, you would explain how it is real but inconsequential and not a reason to deny rights. You can change people's opinions for the better much quicker if you don't bullshit them.

I support marriage equality. Do you?

BINGO!!!!!

The slippery slope argument was his entire point.

And of course he will not acknowledge the opposing forces, the decline of the power of religion, and the growing distrust of religious fundamentalists.

No, the slippery slope argument is a false argument. It is like hypothetical questions; what if.....?

Yes, I support marriage equality.

Sure I acknowledge the decline in religion. But I think it's both good and bad, in your bigoted mind it's all good.

The slippery slope is real but inconsequntial and no reason to deny rights.

I do too.

I believe the slippery slope is real but inconsequential and no reason to deny rights. And I believe it change more minds if you explain this insted of denying it's real.

so if it was a rhetoric question, why did you chastise those who you felt didn't answer it????
C'mon Frankie boy, try and get your story straight.
BTW Why are you filled with so much anger?
I chastised them because they refuse to get on topic and were just trying to attack me, like you are doing now.

Why are you so angry about me attempting to discuss marriage? Is it just the mention of polygamy that angers you so?

of course you are not actually interested yourself, the slippery slope argument is only made by people trying to influence others to their position.
Want in one hand sh!t in the other, see which one fills up first. Let me know.

If you were better educated and smarter you'd explain how the slippery slope is real but inconsequential and no reason to deny gay marriage like I am trying to do. Instead of tying to bullsh!t us that it is not real or some kind of trick.

Please stop dicking around and discuss the topic.

You've tried all your best insults, now it's time for your opinions and thoughts on marriage equality.

not angry just tried of equating same sex marriage and polygamy as the same issue.

they're not. I stated my reasons against polygamy.

marriage is a social contract between two consenting adults. Not granting those legal rights to same sex couples is unconstitutional IMO.
There are a host of legal issues when it comes to multiple adults in one marriage.
