do you understand that this forum is not for just your town? At the top it says it is the forum for my town, but it is actually much broader than that.
This is a Topix forum and not specifically for your town.

You donít expect them to actually listen to their own religion do you? They only apply that to other people, never themselves.

Yes

It reminds me of something Ghandi once said

"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."

No, stupid, drawing up a contract won't automatically give you all the benefits of marriage.

True, but a bigger point is, where is the religious freedom of the thousands of churches that do want to preform same sex marriages, why are their religious freedoms being denied?

Marriage isn't legal. Marriage is a formal and real bonding of a man and women, and announcing they are one with each other and for each other. Rose knows nothing.
Anybody can announce anything, that's not the issue. Notice the title of the forum. "Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage" The first word should clue even a knuckle dragger like you into the fact this is a legal issue.

He is just baiting you, the issue he keep harping on doesnít have anything to do with the case in the supreme court
it is standard opponents bait and switch tactic
he is obviously trying to get you to make a statement so that others can pounce on it.
that is the only reason he is bringing it up
if you have one opinion he will pounce one way, if you have another then it is fodder for his friends who are opponents of same sex marriage.
I think people bring up the red herring of polygamy because they don't have a good argument against gay marriage. And they are hoping they can then attack the poster (not their arguments)as being bigoted, or hypocritical, or whatever.

Ho,
You are confusing a fruit tree that does not produce fruit, with a nut tree that does not produce nuts but wants to be a fruit tree.
Ho, Ho, Ho.
KiMare,

Everyone should be aware that you frequent all of the gay discussion sites on TOPIX as a means to live out your need to be in contact with other gay people.

This is your "virtual gay bar".

You are a closeted, self-loathing bi/homosexual who, interestingly, seems to know more about gay sex and the gay lifestyle than any straight person or most gay people, for that matter.

That you come to these sites is pathological. It is a high-pitched, girlish squeal for help.

We all know your family/friends do not know that you frequent these sites.

I'm sure they would be totally humiliated by the graphic and idiotic things you say.

You just need to get your ticket punched and I'm sure you'd get the relief you need, so that you wouldn't troll around here or any of the other TOPIX rooms you go to on a daily basis.

Well, what do you call someone who supports same sex marriage but not polygamy? I call them hypocrites. What do you call them?

Maybe they scream because you are deaf.

What about the children?

You never answer. You just say anyone who asks is a moron. What kind of dopey "Law" is that?

If asked "what about the children" in a poly family they would tell you they are thriving. I suspect they are in a same sex marriage too.

So Rose_NoHo. Once and for all, What about the children? The answer is not "only morons ask".
