USA has a net negative migration rate. More people are leaving the AmeriKKKa nation than entering.

Not true in terms of education, healthcare, wealth equality, birth mortality, etc.

Most Conservative Christians are the ones pushing for killing and wars overseas.
Why do you think Texas has no "kids gun down" problem?
They do. Texas is one of the worst states in the union with the highest teen pregnancy, poverty, stupidity, illiteracy, etc.
Did you know that cities that allow guns are less violent and have less crime?
Not true. You are lying.
Do you really think that taking guns from law abiding citizens will reduce crime?
Yes Amerifat. Statistically it's been proven that less guns = less killing. Look at UK with only 35 deaths caused by guns last year.

Actually, it's more of a "who cares?" thought. If SSM opens a door to Poly, so what?! Really, so what if it does?

S o w h a t !? Non-issue, get over it.
Here we go again, a buff ego with no head trying to reason...

First, words describe reality. A poly-marriage holds two major common distinctions that gay couples completely fail at;
-diverse genders
-procreation

Always core identities of the relationship of marriage.

This still ignores the fundamental essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Something you still have been abjectly unable to surmount with an iota of reason...

All this and more clearly disqualifies gay couples from marriage. No matter what some twisted judge decrees...

However, the practice of polygamy is rooted in two reasons;
-Supporting a population that has more females than males.
-A substandard solution to address male mating behavior drive.

It also has this vicious backlash for women. Let me use Mohammad and Bin Laden as examples;

Both had polygamous marriages. Both had wives engaged in vicious fights for dominance and attention.

By the way, straight marriage is leading to SSM. So if SSM leads to Poly, and you really, really don't want Poly then you should be arguing to get rid of the root cause which is staright marriage.
See how much credit that will buy you.
Then again, if you don't think straight marriage marriage leads to SSM then your whole fear about SSM leading to Poly is unfounded and a lie.
Your headless buff ego knows no bounds...

As noted above, marriage does NOT "lead to ssm". They are, of all relational types, literally opposites.

Moreover, your gay twirl asserts that the perversion of a good thing (marriage) means you get rid of the good thing, instead of eradicating the negative element. Are you serious???

In other words, we have laws prohibiting polygamy instead of abolishing marriage, the best and intended birthplace of human fruit.

Congratulations! You boggle the mind of a half senile old man with your stupidity...

Smirk smile.

If you knew history, you'd know they knew they had sounded the death knell for those issues.

While those issues have been confronted over and over in history, calling gay couples married has only extremely rarely and briefly been attempted. A clear distinction.

Ho, Ho, Ho.

Since you don't have a good argument against gay marriage, you try to cloud the issue with the polygamy red herring. Why not start a forum on the topic of polygamy? Oh, yeah, you don't really give a damn about it.
I remembered when the slippery slide argument was discounted in the debate about legalizing abortion. There would 'never be acceptance' for the killing of viable babies. There are no restrictions. You know that, don't you.

Isn't that a Ho, Ho, Ho.

Same sex marriage is like abortion or women combat troops in the front lines. Same sex marriage is like gender apartheid marriage where before marriage had perfect gender diversity, integration and union.

Judges should rule by law, not wright law. Sympathy isn't the function of justice, maybe they should go to church, where they encourage charity and mercy. Law is for consistent results along tradition and precedent, not radical new standards of marriage.

Not me! But some do. And some women want more than one husband. And sometimes three men want to marry. I say let 'em. Their rights are just as important as anyone else's.

It certainly would be accepted better if it was done by popular vote. I think much of the opposition to same sex marriage isn't against it per se, but it is a backlash against making it legal by judicial fiat.

I think if a popular vote were held today, it would probably pass. And avoid much backlash against it.

Gays and lesbians can legally marry in any state in the union. Always had that right, and did, exercise that right, just like anybody else.
Yes a gay man could always legally marry a straight woman, and a lesbian woman couod always marry a straight man. Usually the homosexual person did not tell the straight person that they were gay. They had to "stay in the closet". Now wouldn't it be nice if homosexual people could come out of the closet and marry the same sex person they really wanted to marry?

Why do you believe polygamy doesn't deserve the same consideration and respect as same sex marriage? We know it's illegal, so don't try to say that's why. That's silly!

I think it wouldn't harm anyone and it should be allowed. I also think a marriage of three wouldn't harm anyone and should be allowed. Marriage is a good thing for society.

It would be best if we could vote on it. I think people get angry more at the judicial fiat way of enacting it than with same sex marriage itself.
