Same sex mariage between two consenting adults should be legal. It has nothing to do with polygamy which is usually meant to be one man having many wives. It usually does not discuss one woman having many husbands.

Most women don't want many husbands, perhaps if one were a chiropractor...

You believe unpopular people don't deserve equality. Typical bigot.

Why would you deny marriage to three gay men?

NO I believe that looking for inspiration for marriage equality in a state where they actively fund opposition to marriage equality in other states is hilarious.

Some homosexual activists also see the link between same-sex marriage and polygamy (or polyamory, multiple romantic and sexual relationships without legal marriage). Justin Michael, founder of the group "Polyamorous NYC," says that efforts by homosexual activists to deny the link with polyamory is false and cowardly. "I'd encourage people to keep an open mind," he asserted, "it wasn't too long ago that gay relationships were completely ostracized. All movements have a tendency to build on the movements that have come before them." He added: "It's hypocritical for us as gays and lesbians to pretend we're the only people who are treated differently because our relationships are not mainstream. Both communities are concerned with love, and forming lasting relationships, and with our own liberation."

That's because you are a stupid. And heavily biased. And a Christian hating hypocrite.

Even the dreaded fundies deserve equality.

Perhaps these people are more palatable to Big D, who assigns equal rights on the basis of popularity.

No it is because you are a dishonest and transparent moron, the people that are funding opposition to same sex marriage are not in any way champions of marriage equality.

The nice thing about your focus on Utah now is that every time you bring up your obsession, we can instantly bring it back to the topic for this forums.

The funding of Prop 8 was primarily out of Utah, strong armed by the church for tens of millions of dollars to send out of state to fun opposition in other states.

Even those evil polygamists in Utah such as the Brown family support same sex marriage.

The Mormons don't. Get over it. It doesn't matter.

Same sex marriage is here, it's just a matter of time before it's even in UTAH! So relax fruitcake. And maybe think of others being denied equality, even if you don't like them. That's the true test, and you fail.

It is interesting having propositions like Prop 8 being funded by out of state groups like that.

Has a history you know

The "Save the Horses" prop a few years earlier for example, it was a proposition forbidding the sale of horses for human consumption in California, funded by.... drum roll.... ranchers in Arizona that were raising horses for human consumption that didn’t want competition from California

And of course Prop 8. a proposition to deny rights to Americans based on orientation, funded by the champions opposed to freedom... the people of the Mormon church in Utah whop were desperate to keep gay people in California from being happy.

Since Mormons funded Prop 8, polygamy shouldn't be allowed. Gotcha.

Oh I know, I know, you "have nothing against it it's just everybody else!" Too Funny!

I never said polygamy should not be allowed, you are saying that, not me.

I am just laughing at your personal champions of "marriage equality", it just exposes you as the total hypocrite you are.

Another example of out of state funding of propositions, tens of millions poured into California trying to stop Indian casinos… funded by…. Drum roll…. Nevada casinos!

Anymore whenever a controversial proposition comes up, just follow the money.

Utah really likes to stick their noses in other states business, but they are being shut down now.

More lies from City Manager Chris Jeffers.

According to Jeffers, the city has hired an organization, Overland Pacific & Cutler, to meet with each of the residents to help them find other financial resources or other means of affordable housing before their rental subsidies expire.

This was done after Mrs. Green took them to court and the city and Anchor Pacifica lost TWICE, they even tried to take it to the California Supreme Court twice and got their butts kicked.

Chris Jeffers, D. Wayne Leech and the entire Glendora, California city council - just shameful trash.
