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.
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?

Not only do you once again expose the weakness of your argument, you expose the lack of character that goes with it.
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 doesn’t actually care at all about the subject, he is only trying to get attention, specifically a reaction from people.

look how many time he asks if someone is mad

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.

This is a discussion forum. It doesn't work if you refuse to discuss the topic and get all angry and have hissy fits. Relax.

Polygamy is marriage, completely on topic in a discussion of marriage equality.

By your rules you cannot mention Mars in a discussion of Venus. Your rules are stupid. And the purpose of them is to censor unwelcome thought. Anti-intellectual and boring.

What a jerk!

I am interested in discussing marriage. This is a discussion forum. It won't work if you treat it like a kindergarten playground and refuse to discuss the topic to hide your bigotry. Tell me why you are against polyamory, don't just whine.

So, before I was so juvenilely interrupted, I was asking you why are you a hypocrite?

Then start your own damn thread. This is about Prop 8. I can understand why you don't wish to discuss it.
