Actually, yes you can. Straight people do it every day.
The key is the reasons you are denying those equal rights. Gay folks have already proven, categorically, that our marriages are good for our families, and good for society in general.
Gay folks want the SAME right to marry the adult single non-related person of their choice that straight folks ALREADY have. It's very simple.
And straight religious folks marrying many spouses at one time just doesn't enter into the marriage conversation for most Americans. Americans LOVE to marry multiples - just one at a time.
Do you demand that all of your straight friends, and every heterosexual married couple that you know, support marrying multiple spouses, simply because THEY can marry one at a time? Don't you think they would laugh at you for making such silly and illogical demands?
Of course you don't do that, do you, but you apply that leaky logic ONLY to gay folks.
Polygamy is a separate issue, with it's own arguments, detractors, and problems. If people wish to begin marrying many, then they will go through the appropriate channels, and prove that their marriages are good for their families, and for society, and the laws banning it will change.
If you support polygamy, then speak up. Demanding that other people who do not want to marry more than one spouse at a time support polygamy, simply because they want to marry just ONE person, is just plain silly.
But, I guess it really is all you have left, isn't it? You can't find a single logical or relevant reason to deny gay people the right to marry, so all you can do it to try to tie it to an unrelated divisive issue and hope for the best.
Straight people discriminate against gays so it's alright for you to discriminate against polygamists. Is that what you are saying jackass?

What harm would a loving marriage of three consenting adult men cause you or anyone else? We won't wait for an answer since you have don't have one.

What a dope!

Just say NO, to Gover Norquist and his crazy ideas that come from the Middle East.

Republicans, Tea Party Nation members and GOP, break Grover Norquist's grip on you.

He even looks like a demon!

Definitely Bush's fault. It was almost Romney's fault, the popular vote was close. But Obama won so it's Bush's fault for 4 more years.

Funny!

That's all the bigots really have to justify denying polygamy. "It's illegal".

Research the reasons it's illegal and then come back and justify them. We won't wait.

P.S. Same sex marriage is effectively illegal in most states. Will you accept that as a reason to deny it? We won't wait for an answer.

What a dope!

It looks as if the 75% of voters who approved of President Obama's economic approach in exit polls to help America and the middle class, working poor are getting a voice in Congress.

People like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Paul Ryan, Ron Paul, Tim Donnelly, Willard Mitt Romney, John BoneHead himer, Grover Norquist and other Republican, GOP and Tea Party Meat-Heads need to get their act straightened up.

The GOP and Republican outlaws are being hunted down as you read this message, they haven't a chance since they have already been tried and convicted of treason against the citizens of The United States of America.

All the while those pesky Tea Party members are running like cockroaches from the limelight of the world.

How many marriages out there are keeping people trapped in a bad relationship, sure you can divorce but that just makes matters worse in most cases who want to continue paying alomony to someone you no longer live with. If two adults want to live together they should be ablt to freely and the same to leavi

A "separate issue"? What's that supposed to mean? Same sex marriage is a "separate issue" too.

You make no sense. And you plagiarize my schtick, you greasy little thief! Like it eh, Fruitloops? Yeah it's good.

You are for polygamy "As long as those women were no coerced through cult surroundings, were minors and knew of each other."

I am for same sex marriage "As long as those women were no coerced through cult surroundings, were (not) minors and knew of each other."

See how bigoted you are Dan? Do you get it yet dummy?

Someone entering into a same sex marriage might commit suicide within two years too Dan. Do you have a point beyond bigotry?

I looked it up Fruitloops. Says "polygamy is illegal". Is that really your argument against it genius? Same sex marriage is effectively illegal in most states too. You won't got to prison for it like a polygamist would but you cannot do it. You're a dope.

Look in the mirror you greasy little schtick copying bigot!

FUNNY!
