Get to work rigging the judge-its Jackass! You're slacking off.

Speed it up, no Viagra or Night Train for you today! Hup! Hup!

Remember now, good judge-its if your gay, no matter what, and bad judge-its for straight no matter what they say!

Except of course for your own posts which you rate good even though you're straight!

YUK!YUK!YUK! JizzyBrid. What a tool!

I don't! The only thing that will eliminate prostitution is extinction of humans.
If polygamy ever becomes legal and women could have as many husbands as she wants, prostitutes could marry their Johns. It might not eliminate prostitution, but it could diminish it.

"...hate against Frankie...bla bla bla angry rant..bla bla bla...
But you canít claim that A ( SSM ) leads to B ( poly ) much less C ( your sister ) or D ( your goat ) until you have a single fact of a same sex marriage state recognizing Poly..."
There is a federal law against poly fruitcake, No state can recognize poly.

Get educated, it's the best defence against hate and bigotry.

P.S. Goats cannot enter into contracts. You use all the bigotry people use against SSM, but you use it against polygamy and poorly. Study up, there are much better ignorant insults against poly then the goat one, study the great homophobes work for some better ones.

Polyamorists wishing to marry are denied equal protection Miss Thing.
The are not allowed to do it. They will go to prison if they do.
Same sex and opposite sex marriages are allowed by the feds. You can do it. You won't go to prison, you'll even get lots of free stuff!
This is not equal protection. Are you starting to get it Miss Thing?
"Equal protection" means you get to take your grievence to Court, you flaming dumbass. It does NOT mean equal rights. And the Browns aren't even asking the Court to have their marriage legally recognized.

And in the end, it will have no meaning at all.
That is what the Romans said when they stopped killing Christians for entertainment in the coliseum

That is what the slave masters said in the deep south during the emancipation

That is what the far right said when women got the vote

I know you desperately want to protect the sanctity of Brittany Spears "just of fun" 3 day marriage, but I promise you, same sex marriage will not diminish Brittanyís marriage one tiny little bit

So.. you are saying when and if Utah recognizes Poly, that it will be because of their support for Same Sex marriage.

donít mind the laughter you are hearing, we are all laughing at a private joke.

I am not using anything against poly, I am not opposed to poly, I am just trying to bring you down to reality just a little bit. Right now you are higher than Rush Limbaugh at the Elvis Presley estate pharmaceutical sale

Won't be that simple.

So you are saying granting equality for one group has no relation to any other group?

That's not the way it has worked throughout history so far.

We know, you're not against poly. Everybody else is though because they're child abusers and pedophiles! That's Big D's "face of polygamy" and he's sticking to it!

In your opinion, not in reality.
Even judges offer opinions. One says there's a right to SSM, another says there's no right to SSM. A judge could express that very same opinion. The judge's opinion carries for more weight, but it's still an opinion.
There is no requirement to make any and all changes to every law because one change is logical and sensible.
But of course Questy, because we all know that removing the opposite sex requirement from marriage is "logical and sensible", but removing the number restriction is not. Right?(Sigh)

It all boils down to opinion again.
A civil right cannot be denied to one group ONLY because you are afraid that another group might someday push their cause.
Sorry, that's not rational, and it's not constitutional.
True, but the civil right in question is not denied. It applied to all men and all women equally. Some folks don't like the manner in which they have to exercise it. But the right is the same for all men and women.
