First of all jackass, it's a discussion not a Q and A.
Second of all give me post numbers of someone responding to me seriously without the insults and ad hominem.
I suggest you avoid the discussion to avoid revealing your hypocrisy.
Was this not your post Frankie boy???

Don't you agree that the judge overturning California's ban on same-sex marriage bodes well for all marriage equality?
The question is not off topic. But I bet your response will be."

Is that not a question near the end?? Oh and speaking of ad hominem attacks, you seem to be the master.

so it is obvious that since you can't address the logical answer, attacked the messenger.

BTW I'm betting you're a big Frankie Goes to Hollywood fan. Probably a Village People, Wham and George Michael fan too

Frankie boy isn't it about time for you to exit the closet? Embrace your sexuality, boy

I thought you did. It's hard to tell when you just post dopey ad hominem and references to asshat polls. So you are now saying it won't have any effect at all?

It seems to me just common sense that it will make it easier for people to accept poly when they accept same sex marriage. It seems keeping same sex marriage banned will make it more likely poly stays banned too.

It would be hard to do. If you had had paid attention you would have seen. You are not here very often. And when you are you just post ad hominem.
Janey-Doody is adamant the judges decision had absolutely no effect on polygamy. You and Big D I think believe it does bode well for poly (I'm not sure though because you mostly just post dopey ad hominem) Also Rock Hudson believes it bodes well for poly. For just a few examples.

A question in a discussion is to lead to further discussion, not just to answer.

No. I am not gay. And I consider anyone who uses gay as an insult even if they are gay themselves is stupid. There is nothing wrong with being gay. If I was I'd be proud.

I am of course talking about consenting committed adults, so scratch the first 3 items of your stupid list.
Modern science has debunked the myth about close relatives procreating and health issues, keep up!
And besides procreation has nothing to do with marriage right? Right.
How would a loving commited marriage of three men harm you?
The slippery slope is real, but not a reason to deny equal rights to same sex or poly marriages.

If by modern science you mean the Bible and the story of Sodom & Gorrmorah and Lot and his daughters then yes the myth of marrying close relatives has been debunked

However, if you are talking about modern medical science, no it hasn't. There are plenty of case studies that bore this out. It actually played a role in the science of genelogy. Any college biology course covers this topic, which explains why you don't have a clue

That has been achieved already, many times over, and not just by me, there are a lot of folks that have done that.
You are free to discuss equal rights all you want, just expect me to pounce when you tell others to stay on topic... cause it is fun.
You want the answer again?
It will have no effect on it whatsoever.
Any positive push by the allowing of gay marriage will be and already has been offset by the lessening of tolerance for fanatical religious fundamentalism and cult groups. Along with their decline goes the interest in your obsession as well.
We've already been through this. What makes you think I need your permission to discuss the topic or anything else?

You seriously don't think removing the ban on gay marriage will make it easier to remove the ban on polygamy some day?

By what logic do you insist that there will be no effect?

I answered your question but I guess you have ADD

4. marriage above all else is a social contract. Inheritances, medical decisions, etc are all part of that contract. With polygamy, the lines of who gets what, who makes what decisions are blurred and lead to legal battles. Does one of the wives who is not the mother of one of the children in the marriage get to make medical decisions for that child is a prime example of why polygamy is illegal.
These are all rational, logical reasons why the slippery slope fallacy is moot. However, judging by your previous posts, intelligent logical debate is not your forte. Debating with a wall has better results.

same sex marriage and polygamy are two separate issues. and comparing them as equal is a fallacy..something you seem to use quite frequently.

as I said marriage is a social contract. Polygamy, besides a host of problems it raises, legal issues is the biggest.

I don't want five wives or to marry my brother. I want to discuss equal rights.

Do you want to marry a man? If not why are you arguing for same sex marriage?

Don't be so stupid.

Of course you don’t understand "no effect whatsoever" the net positive push is equaled by the negative push.

It doesn’t matter that you didn’t comprehend what I said, others here will.

Not that it will matter, no one other than you gives a crap about it.

so if it was a rhetoric question, why did you chastise those who you felt didn't answer it????

C'mon Frankie boy, try and get your story straight.

BTW Why are you filled with so much anger?

I thought you said it would be good for poly. Must have been someone else. So sue me.

You really believe it will not have even a tiny effect?

I want you to bring your wife on so we can discuss it with her.

of course you are not actually interested yourself, the slippery slope argument is only made by people trying to influence others to their position.

The "we should not allow equal rights for poly because it would be complicated" argument.

Heard it. It's bogus. We can work it out. Complexity is no reason to deny equality.

He has been given answers, he wants a public display of the "slipery slope" argument you so clearly pointed out.

he will not discuss same sex marrage in any way at all, he is 100% focused on poly, and no matter how many times that tactic fails him, he keeps at it.

I think we are looking at a learning disorder

The slippery slope is not a fallacy. It is real. If you were better educated and smarter, you would explain how it is real but inconsequential and not a reason to deny rights. You can change people's opinions for the better much quicker if you don't bullshit them.

I support marriage equality. Do you?
