LIke forced marriages in prison? Yeah, we've already seen just how many of those have occured in Canada. Perhaps you need to rethink, with some intelligence for a change, what those probable consequences might be before banging on about them.

This argument, RIGHT HERE, sounds an awful lot like the one used to benefit the gays:
"The Browns present a strong argument that what they do in their home is their business. And the more they argue for privacy and rights to marry whomever they choose, the more it morphs into a parallel argument in favor of same-sex marriage. In fact, if Turley is right when he says that, in this marriage debate, we are truly concerned with liberty and protections for “private relations among consenting adults,” then the number should not matter any more than sex."
...doesn't it ? In fact, if we delete a couple of words..."then the number should not matter any more than sex.", then it is a carbon copy. As is proper. As Frank and I have been saying.
Smile. You're the guest star of "Ooops, Guess I F**ked Up Again"....Played nightly on Topix.
Oh no, I am on the right side of history, same sex marriage is legal now, in a growing number of states and countries.

You can cry and whine and pine for the "good old days" all you want, but it isn’t going to do you any good, same sex marriage will continue to become legal in more and more states

1) the boy scouts are a club somewhat, open for all boys to join, unless of course if you are gay.

2) Who said you have to be married in a church? BTW there are a few churches that will preform a traditional marriage ceremony.

The topic of this blog is:“Judge overturns ban on same sex marriage in California.”
Everything else is off topic.
Of course homosexuals should have equal rights to legal marriage.
Everything else is off topic. I have seen both homosexual and heterosexuals display lust, and I have seem both homosexuals and heterosexuals display love. Only a couple should decide if they are in love and want to have the legal right to be married.

Right. Those are you arguments against polygamy. They're stupid.
Not one of those arguments were against it, just pointing out some facts. I am not against it, I just dont care, as I know nothing is going to happen with it for a long long time.

Immoral religious degenerates have made absolutely certain of that.

If you think otherwise then build your case, put it on a ballot, have a vote, send it to the Supreme Court, but don’t be asking me for a donation because I could not care less. I already know the outcome of your efforts.

Wrong, a church is a private little club, they can refuse to marry people with blue eyes, they can refuse to marry someone because they are a republican.

This is not about some church or other, this is about legal marriage, which requires no church at all, no mention of any "holy books" or beliefs and can take place in your kitchen if you want it to with someone with the right paperwork and authorized by the state to do so.( I know, I have been to one of those )

Also, who is defending the rights of churches that WANT to preform same sex marriages and are being denied the right to do so? There are tens of thousands of those as well.

What hate, I am explaining that any church can decide not to marry anyone for any reason they want, no matter how silly the reason, as their rules only apply to their little church.

I am defending a churches right to specifically deny doing a marriage regardless of the legality of same sex marriage.

A police officer has been demoted for sending sexually-explicit video to her boyfriend.

Lopez herself is now reportedly considering a lawsuit against the city.

Her lawyer explained that her case would be based on "constitutional issues over lawful off-duty behavior and violation of privacy."

No I am pointing out bigotry and ignorance in condemning a whole group due to the actions of a few.

There are some bad homosexuals too. Does that mean we should label all homosexuals bad? Of course not. But that is exactly what you are doing with polygamists.

Hope that helps.

Yeah, people that force children to have sex with older men, the ones in the news you see all the time, and anyone that disagrees that they are Religious immoral degenerates is also an immoral degenerate.
