How can it prohibit something that was already against the law? That's like saying Californians passed a proposition to outlaw murder.
Many states defense of marriage acts prohibit same sex marriage which was already prohibited.

I'm sorry if you feel polyamorists are horning in on your suffering, but they are suffering exactly the same as you. And they deserve the same relief that you demand.

There is nothing politically correct about the current laws and medical diagnoses.
What you're suggesting is ridiculous. You know it; I know it; everybody reading your posts knows it.
Give up, hater. Go back to "church school".
I think that you insisting that pedophiles who molest only boys and never girls are not gay is ridiculous. But PC is ridiculous so that's that.

Honey, why don't you simply educate me?
I'd really love to hear it from you.
All pedophiles are straight according to the PC handbook. It would be homophobic to say one was gay! But it's fine to call them all straight.

PC makes no sense, but that's the nature of it.

Surely it would be wise to label the gender danger a pedophile represents?
Or are you suggesting we leave a child at risk to be politically correct?

If those designations would protect the child, yes.

But you know they don't.

You also know what I suggest does protect them, and the only reason it is not used is political correctness. To the detriment of the child.

However, more than gay pedophiles jumping for joy, the Scouts are careful about opposite gender leaders in camping situations with Scouts. A responsible recognition to the power of mating behavior. Homosexuals are exempt from that temptation and discretion?

All this is just another example of homosexuals throwing common sense and children under the bus to fulfill their fantasy and denial.

Your continuous and contrived astonishment of my position on this issue does not sway me.
I'm just exposing your hypocrisy, I'm not trying to sway you.

Any astonishment is with your audacity in casually believing that polygamy doesn't deserve the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage.

I'm embarrassed as a human for them trying to defend such nonsense.

I'm outraged that they are willing to put children at risk to maintain their denial.

Ironic isn't it, the very form of legal marriage you support other than monogamous, conjugal, husband and wife, is same sex, has opened the door to the form of marriage, polygamy, you don't support. Every victory for SSM is also a victory for the eventual legalization of plural marriage.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor brought it up while questioning former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson, a Republican who argued that gay marriage is an individual right and should be protected by the Constitution.

"If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what state restrictions could ever exist?" Sotomayor asked before referencing polygamy and incest among adults.

How can one prohibit polygamy between consenting adults, if marriage is a fundamental right? What state restrictions, as long as the parties are consenting adults, could ever exist?

That is an excellent point that cannot be stressed enough to these dumb haters, every victory for same sex marriage is a victory for polygamy.

They did, they outlawed assault rifles which made murder even "MORE ILLEGAL" ( chuckle ) It used to just be illegal to murder someone with an assault rifle, but now it is even "more illegal".

Is that why you choose not to address me directly? Or perhaps you have no argument? Is that why you are so hostile whenever I mention poly?(chuckle)

Your jokes are stupid. But any diversion to avoid addressing the fact that I am correct, eh Big D?

I am correct. Prop 8 discriminates against polygamy as much as it does against SSM.(chuckle)

But that's your straw man argument. To avoid the real argument we were having which is that true marriage equality won't happen until polygamy is also allowed. I am also correct on that. And it makes you angry and frustrated. Deal with it.

Hope that helps!

How about this... You go out and change all of the laws regarding pedophilia--make them determine what kind of pedophile they're dealing with. But be ready for all of the different types. There are Catholic, Baptists, Atheists, teachers, coaches, troop leaders, politicians, etc.

When it comes right down to it, would you want a man who has a history of molesting little girls working with little boys?

IMHO, if you are a pedophile, you are a pedophile. And the laws, as well as the scientists, seem to agree on that.

You always seem to "omit" Ted Olson's reply to the justice, so I'll help you out once again...

Ted Olson: "Well, you've said -- you've said in the cases decided by this Court that the polygamy issue, multiple marriages raises questions about exploitation, abuse, patriarchy, issues with respect to taxes, inheritance, child custody, it is an entirely different thing. And if you -- if a State prohibits polygamy, it's prohibiting conduct. If it prohibits gay and lesbian citizens from getting married, it is prohibiting their exercise of a right based upon their status.
It's selecting them as a class, as you described in the Romer case and as you described in the Lawrence case and in other cases."

See... Apples and oranges... Conduct vs. status...

It's so simple that even someone like you can understand.

In a few words, he put your "polygamy scare-tactic" to rest.

No... It isn't an ad hominem. It is a legitimate point.

He is fascinated with all things gay. He has explicitly described gay male (not female) sex on multiple occasions. I would even go so far as to say that he seems to know more about gay male (not female) sex than many gay men. And he believes himself to be an expert on pedophilia.

We know he's not an attorney; so he doesn't have a great legal mind with regards to the law when it comes to pedophilia. And we know he's not a scientist or physician. We know he's not completed coursework or studied gay male behavior.

And yet he seems to know so much.

Why is that? How does an allegedly straight pastor know so much about these topics?

It would require a great deal of exploration or firsthand knowledge.

They don't teach these kinds of things when you get your bachelor's degree in religion, which is what he has.

How does he know so much?
