I think your hero Rose_NoHo has given up on her argument that polygamy shouldn't be given equality because it's a fish.
She tried to get "intelligent and insightful" but failed. Don't you agree?
Nah.... she merely invoked simple arithmetic: three is NOT equal to two.

Looks like you need to review your lesson!

Here's another term you need to learn. "Straw man argument".
<quoted text>
Ha ha ha, you thought a red herring was a fish!
No I didn't. You are just trying (and failing) to cover up that you are a bigot and a hypocrite.

I repeat. Polygamy is not a fish. It is marriage worthy of the same respect and consideration as SSM.

When you have no argument, as you don't, it's best not to respond rather than use tired boring ad hominem like "You didn't know what a red herring is!". How dishonest and juvenile!

Ha ha ha. You're stupid, dishonest and wrong.

Try again. Why are you a hypocrite?

You mean the slaughter of Christians in arenas deserved to go on?
No one screamed 'what about the children' just like you.
Do you even understand what you are defending?
Ho.
Which is nothing compared to the slaughter the Christians did during the crusades, but abroad and at home.

Ancient Rome cant hold a candle to the violence done in the name of Christianity

Do you understand what you are defending?

Well, stupid, polygamy is a red herring. It's not the issue, the issue is gay marriage. Why not start a forum to talk about polygamy? Too dumb to know how to do that? That's my guess.
You cannot simply dismiss polygamy by calling it a fish. Why don't you just come out and admit you are a hypocrite?

SSM doesn't matter. It's a fish. See? it works both ways jackass.

Learn that polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as SSM, hypocrite.

Simply dismissing it as a red herring won't cut it toots. Try harder.

Polygamy is not a fish. It's marriage worthy of the same respect and consideration as SSM. You just call it a fish because you are a hypocrite.

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

Put bluntly, if heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

If you're going to respond "Polygamy is a red herring!! And you think a red herring is a fish!!" again, don't bother. you already tried that. it failed.

Why are you a hypocrite?

Smirk.
and you're not playing games yourself? you're dilluting a relationship two consenting adult want to solemnize with vows and obtain those rights the GAO listed a few yrs back (totaling to just over 1300) that are extended to only legally married couples. you're the one trying to tell us that anything other than a male/female married relationship isn't worthy of those vows to one another. you're the one that's smirking at you own (lack) of with, chum, not us.
the issues at hand are regarding the legal contract between 2 consenting adults that wish to marry. stick to the topic. when you can rationally discuss with insulting people, then chime in. without the smartasz smirks and ridiculous comparisons. until then, let the grownups talk at the grown up table.

the more important question is : why are you here, in a thread regarding same sex marriage?
another question :
why don't you start a movement on your own to get polygamy legalized? go ahead - hire an attorney and take it to court. we'll read all about it in the news. i look forward to reading about the arguments presented in court. good luck.

Because he doesnt actually care at all about the subject, he is only trying to get attention, specifically a reaction from people.

that is the goal, talking about one small sad human here

Naah. The more important question is why are you against some alternate forms of marriage while at the same time promoting your own alternate form of marriage?

Put more simply, why are you a hypocrite?

I'm trying to have an intelligent discussion of marriage equality, I wish you would participate instead of attempting to censor me.
