I do agree that the decline in religion in America will probably make this a non-issue, there are no groups bringing this up an issue, just one idiot on an internet forum.
I have not stated an opinion other than I donít really careÖ neither do most people, it just is not an issue.
Please stay on topic
I am on topic. You're not.

The topic is marriage equality. It applies to poly too even though you don't want it to.

You wish to deny rights to poly but you cannot say that without revealing your hypocrisy, so you whine that it's off topic and say you don't care about poly marriage rights. Yet you care about same sex marriage rights.

Yet your constant harping on religion like some crazed fundie is somehow supposed to be on topic.

It would be pretty hard for my mom to be younger than me. You need to talk to someone to explain to you how things work. I respect older people if they deserve it. You dont. You are superior to no one, therefore you deserve nothing from anyone except pity.

<quoted text>I point out, most same sex marriage supporters use insults because they don't base their views on rationality. They base their views on the good feeling of being inclusive, tolerant and enlightened.
Same sex marriage is like the ersatz equality of women in combat roles.

<quoted text>The US Supreme Court has ruled, wardens can't restrict a prisoner's right to marriage. So, more likely prison chaplains and lay prisons will be performing forced prison marriages in the event of same sex marrage.
.
<quoted text>Try to think about the consequences of your radical redefinition of marriage before you change the law.
.
<quoted text>Many same sex marriage supporters think the question,'would it make society better' is stupid; they ask,'will it bring equality'. They prefer equality to anything else.
Your premise that there will be forced marriages in prison is moronic. Got it? You need not reply with a load of claptrap like you did above. Marriages currently involve two willing partners. IME a couple usually meets with the person who is going to perform the ceremony in order to achieve their blessing upon it prior to the fact.

Forced marriages in prison is an objection made by the hard of thinking.

exactly, any argument like that could be made against heterosexual marriages as well.

Stupid argument

but on the plus side, if they have to dig that deep into a barrel of total garbage to try and find some kind of valid argument, it means they are totally out of arguments.

Not just prisons, forced marriages in all institutions. The question of consent is at best, problematic, for prisoners. Same sex marriage would harm everyone, institutionalized or free.

"They" could always use the "off topic!" argument. Or the "I don't care," argument. Perhaps the "not enough people involved" argument.

Or "they" could filibuster about religion.

Don't you agree that religion doesn't belong in a thread about MARRIAGE EQUALITY?
Don't you agree the GAY MARRIAGE RIGHTS logically lead to poly MARRIAGE RIGHTS?
P.S. Your ignorance and bigotry is glaringly obvious with the Mormon comment. Got any good ones against blacks? Hispanics? polyamorists?

If you have to dig that deep into a barrel of crap to come up with an arguemnt, it means you are out of arguments.

The argument you are useing could be used to say hetrosexual marrages should be illegal ( poorly of course, just as it is a poor argumnet as you are using it )

As long as he thinks Poly marriage is on topic... then he really has no case to say religion isnít a proper discussion topic here.

Religion has more do to with the opposition to same sex marriage than any other single factor.

Sure Big D, religion is on topic but marriage isn't. You keep trying to make us believe that.

But we'll be discussing the topic, MARRIAGE EQUALITY. Despite your "off topic!" straw man.

The only reason you say poly MARRIAGE is off topic is to avoid revealing your hypocrisy.

No I am saying you can talk about Poly all you want, and I can talk about religion all I want.

No problem :)

and no one should be saying anything about "off-topic" to anyone else. If you agree to stop using that straw man argument again about Off-Topic all will be good, if you continue to use that straw man argument I will continue to laugh and throw it in your face as I please.

Huh. It's like being a spectator at the Special Olympics.

Gay marriage is fine. It has nothing to do with religion. I'm not Catholic ergo, I couldn't get married (heterosexual) in a Catholic church. Nobody's forcing any religion to change its values.
