That isnít the problem, you would indeed hope that votes didnít count if the majority of brown eyed people put up a ballot and passed a proposition to deny blue eyed people the vote
Such a measure would be deemed unconstitutional, and rightly so.
The problem is that we allow unconstitutional measures to be voted on in the first place.
How out of state interests and strong arm their own flocks to come up with loads of cash to fund an unconstitutional measure. That is what we need to fix
How typical of you....He states that we have no voice or control, and you post that we must take control....Brilliant.

Thanks for repeating your ignorance of logic, but I don't expect much from you. If gender is arbitrary then number is arbitrary???? LMFAO@you I guess you think that is logical because you made it up, eh? You have no proof that one must follow the other, and you have no examples of where that has EVER taken place. JESUS TAP-DANCING CHRIST!
Some babies were dropped on their heads but you were clearly thrown at a wall. You cannot be serious....Of course, both are arbitrary. They were both decided by a man with a pen and too much control. I'd like to leave you with one thought, but I'm not sure you have anywhere to put it! Do you ever wonder what life would be like if you'd had enough oxygen at birth? I don't know what makes you so stupid, but it really works! I can't believe that out of 100,000 sperm, you were the quickest...

Exactly where are polygamists granted "equal rights," except in your mind?
Well, why aren't they, you moron ? They are people, too, just like poofs, aren't they ? Aren't they entitled to the same protection that other groups receive ? And, BTW, can I borrow your brain? I'm building an idiot...

That isnít a ballot measure or text of a court case
show me the official stuff you are representing, ballot measure, or court case text.
I am not going to agree with something like that until I see the official text you are bringing to court.
Nice evasion. You sidestep as poorly as Chongo...

That's a real dopey dodge! Try harder.
Why do you feel poly marriage doesn't deserve the same consideration as same sex marriage?
Please don't say "because it's illegal"! That is a ridiculous reply.
...Sodomy used to be illegal....Now, it's all the rage...

<quoted text>Equal protection, yes.... unless the State can show a legitimate interest in denying it. Do you think simple arithmetic might come into play when talking about equal? How is 3 equal to 2? How is 5 equal to two? How is 3 equal to 5?
I'd be interested in reading your definition of what qualifies as "legitimate interest" ? Please, expound sagely on what legitimizes "legitimate interest" ?

He didn't say that they were....you are obfuscating (again)...Mike's assertion is that you are perfectly comfortable diminishing the rights of a group that you don't agree with. And he is correct. Bigotry, at it's purest.

Lean to read English.... is English you native language? Maybe I can have what I am saying translated into whatever language is used where you come from.
I donít have a huge problem with poly marriage. I have a problem with other crimes that are nearly always associated with it. And will not tolerate many of the current adherents of it and their cruel molestation and mistreatment of their young, or the fraud they use to gain multiple government assistance checks at our expense.
Those evils that you mention are prevalent in many groups, not specific to polygamists...

I always knew that was where you were going, and have been saying so for weeks.
Standard bait and switch tactic, all the opponents of same sex marriage use, and the funny part is the comparison they make is to religious people.
dishonest to the core
Your argument will get no where you relies
Same sex marriage is happening and will continue to happen in more and more states and countries.
Your pet issue is going exactly nowhere.
Of course, his re-tooling of the argument that you use is completely erroneous and unfair. Imagine that argument holding its validity, just because of mere substitution....What nerve....It only works if gays are the protected ones...Else, it is a bunch of bull-shit, right ?

Because the trial testimony was about SSM and NOT poly, the ruling was about SSM, not poly, the appeal was about SSM, not poly, the appeals court ruling was about SSM and not poly. The appeal to SCOTUS is about SSM, not poly. When SCOTUS overturns Prop 8, SSM will be legal again, poly will NOT.
...Until it gets raised, using the same arguments that have carried SSM this far, then, we shall see...

How can you label it arbitrary? You think the number two was picked at random with no reasoning behind it? Out of all the numbers, why pick two? No reason? Seriously???????
INDEFENSIBLE???????? hahahahahahah
OK.... I'm done. You don't have the intellect to discuss this. You are unteachable and incorrigible.
Of course, it was arbitrary. Can you explain the logic behind the decision to limit the number to "2", Miss Thing ?

Ain't it fun when I bring out Big D's inner bigot?

Polygamists are "child molesters who force underage girls to marry them"! They are welfare cheats! Etc. Nice!
