Polyamorous NYC is the only Poly organization in the nation designed specifically to serve the needs of the Gay, Lesbian, Bi & Trans community. The group is diverse, including individuals, couples and groups of various ethnicities and genders. What brings us together is our shared interest in long-term, romantically-committed, multiple-partner relationships and a love of the GLBT way of life.

National ACLU Policy on Plural Marriage

NOTE: The following extracts represent the progression of what has now become the current national ACLU policy on plural marriage.

Policy #91, National ACLU Board Minutes, June 11-12, 1978:
Advocacy of plural marriage and the expression of a religious belief in plural marriage are protected by the free speech guarantee of the First Amendment even though polygamy has been declared to be criminal by states. As with the advocacy of political doctrines, a line must be drawn between expression of belief and the actual practice of an act which has been proscribed by the community through its legislative representatives (the test of a “clear and present danger”).

ACLU of Utah Policy on Plural Marriage, Adopted June 6, 1989:
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Utah believes that the right to advocate and practice plural marriage is constitutionally protected.

The ACLU of Utah has traditionally advocated that personal relationships between consenting adults are protected by the Constitution, and that freedom of religion and freedom of expression are fundamental rights. Criminal and civil laws prohibiting the advocacy or practice of plural marriage are constitutionally defective.

Policy #91, National ACLU Policy on Polygamy, April, 1991:(Current Policy)
The ACLU believes that criminal and civil laws prohibiting or penalizing the practice of plural marriage violate constitutional protections of freedom of expression and association, freedom of religion, and privacy for personal relationships among consenting adults.

POE

Poe's Law is an axiom suggesting that it's difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish between parodies of religious or other fundamentalism and its genuine proponents, since they both seem equally insane. For example, some conservatives consider noted homophobe Fred Phelps to be so over-the-top that they argue he's a "deep cover liberal" trying to discredit more mainstream homophobes.

Same sex marriage means more wasteful government spending on entitlements for a new class of same sex dependent beneficiaries and the higher taxes to pay for that and litigation.
<quoted text>
50% ad homoan attack, 50% self aggrandizing defense of an idiotic assertion while totally ignoring the key distinction equals 100% BS.
First the part you ignored; Religion and race do not procreate. Men and women do. That fact ALONE sets gender in a league alone. Duh.
Second, religion is a choice. Race and gender are not. Religion is a choice, race and gender are not. Another huge distinction.
Race is a merely a difference in skin color. You assert that overrides gender differences by lying, minimizing and ignoring distinctions that affect virtually every aspect of males and females.
Do you know why you make these idiotic characterless troll attacks?
Because you are in denial, and full of hate and bigotry. Oh, you are smart enough to know you have no logical, valid reply, but you hope your troll attack will intimidate. Silly stupid.
One more thing. You weren't kicked repeatedly in the head by a mule, a near senile old man just kicked the bully on the playground repeatedly in the head. Do you know what that means? If an old senile man can school you, there is absolutely no chance you will EVER match the reasoning of Brian G. If you have one ounce of character, you will beg his forgiveness!
Bazinga!
Thanks for the yawn fest, K-Mart. Just in case you hadn't noticed I have, on numerous occasions, tried to engage Brian_G in discussion to expand upon his bumpet sticker slogans. No response of any substance has been made, just more bumper stickers. On top of this we get your two cents worth, which has depreciated to minimal fractional value. He was speaking of differences, religious differences are magnificant. Not small and unimportant. Only an idiot like Brian, and apparently you, would think this to be true. Religion may appear to be a choice, but if you start digging you'll find for many that it really isn't, they've got no choice in the matter as they're drawn to it without thought or reason, just handed down to them generation after generation, hence the strong feelings that lead to such differences. That isn't to say some won't jump ship, making a "choice." One of my brothers married a Pentecostal woman. Now he's Pentecostal and speaks in tongues. I suppose he really didn't have a choice though, just got picked up and carried on into it. If you had one ounce of character you'd slink quietly into the ether never to be heard from again. I do not think this will come to pass.

This is exactly why you are considered to be a wretched excuse for a person. Because you dismiss any who disagree with you. Denial of the facts. Go play with some more mascara and leave the discussions to the adults.

This hasn't yet happened, Poindexter, you'll claim anything to be a victory, won't you ? Danth's Law. You are a fine example of the SSM crowd, you will use anything you can to trumpet some propaganda. Except that we know bullshit when we find it...

Some homosexual activists also see the link between same-sex marriage and polygamy. 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."

I want to start a sect of RuPaul's Witnesses that goes door-to-door, promoting my own twisted sense of morality. I want to bother people in their homes, shoving graphic literature into their hands, threatening them if they don't conform to my way of thinking because the object of my worship is going to cast them into hellfire until their flesh is seared from their bones and their teeth shatter. More than that, I want to judge them harshly when they send me away, and then stand on my soap box and claim that I've just been victimized because someone pointed out a flaw in my beliefs and is now shaming my set of morals. I want that person to be excommunicated from town, other citizens to vandalize the property of my enemies, I want police officers to start ignoring their reports and making backhanded threats because we're a wholesome gay town and anyone who's different better move out of town before they're relocated to the hospital or mortuary.
I also want the government to give me money to do so, and not pay rent for my apartment because I welcome others to join me while I watch Mean Girls. I want to run a business under the guise of a charity that turns straight people away at the door while still receiving the benefit of their tax money.
Most of all, I want to have a single-digit basic television station that broadcasts across the country as the default channel for factory settings, that invites a bunch of like-minded individuals to take up air time dehumanizing anyone still attempting to live a heterosexual lifestyle, and spinning absurd stories to demonize even the most innocent things.
