Do you think the decline in the power of religion in America will be good for polygamy too?
I honestly donít know ÖÖ maybe

because it both takes away the largest opponents , but also takes away the biggest advocate of it. Hard to say, time will tell I suppose.

Strange weather we are having today out here on the bay. Leaden sky. It's gonna rain a little.
Woops! Now you have to make an exception and go off topic yet again with the god schtick! Sorry!
LOL IM glad you are going to get off your Off-topic pedestal

I always liked the weather in the bay area, but I suppose I like it cooler than some do.

I lived there for 2 years ( military ) in my youth, but I do find a reason to go there once a year or so.

Sure! The state of polygamy rights is way behind same sex but on the same path, there's no denying it. And there's no denying legalizing same sex marriage benefits poly rights.
This is good! Full marriage equality for everyone someday for sure!
Good for you, now move on

What's good for marriage equality is good for polygamy and incest marriage.

No, they don't have any relationship, they are friends.

Anyway, I wouldn't define it as skinny anyway, slim, not skinny isn't it? What does being flea bitten have anything to do with this?

Most people can't count?

1=1=2

See. Not that hard.

But seriously, most polygamists seem to be straight deeply religious folks, so I think that the fact that straight couples can marry with impunity right now is the biggest boost to the legality of marrying multiples.

You don't hear many gay folks wanting to marry many at a time. Seems to be a religious fundamentalist heterosexual thing.

Only the anti-gay crowd is calling for polygamy and marrying close relatives. They seem to have a fascination with it.

Fortunately, their numbers are dwindling.

donít think you are looking at the entire picture, but you could be right. I donít claim to know.

Again the largest number of opponents and advocates are both in decline, I donít think it will come up as an actual issue myself, it might, but I would not bet on it.( I am a cautious gambler )

You can bet on same sex marriage becoming legal in more states, that is an easy bet.

Most people can tell the difference between a man and a woman too Fruitcake.

Women are innies and men are outies! See. Not that hard.

But seriously there are gay polygamists. And being few in number is not a reason to deny equal rights is it?

Some polygamists are religious fundamentalists, again not a reason to deny them rights.

Not true. There was an interesting article in the Advocate about gay poly. Touching story of several gay poly relationships. Will make you not so hateful towards poly maybe.

If it weren't for your hate against fundamentalists would you support poly? If only gay people wanted it would you support it?

Now some terrorist-muslim asses is going to be shreaded, women in combat do not back down and they are ruthless.

Leon Panetta has removed the ban on women, and watch as they hard edged ladies parade the stupid MEN who fight aginst them around in a circle.
