"Mormon boy"? Are there Italian Mormons?
I have no idea

still that idea would work

every religion could define "marriage" for their own little private cult

and the government would only recognize the contract of a civil union, which is all the government needs, the legal contract.

One church could call marriage between only a man and a woman
Another church could do same sex marriages
and even Mormon boy could have his poly marriage and call it that

and all would be recognized equally by the law governing civil unions

and they could point fingers at each other all day long calling the other heathens and it would mean absolutely nothing.

The nice part about doing it that way is that even non-relationship unions could be done. 2 older women for example not in a sexual relationship, but close friends with no family could join in such a civil contract for mutual support.

The key to this would be the government no longer recognizing the word... marriage, as any kind of legal term, the government only recognizing civil contracts.

That would solve the mess for everyone.

( granted there would be screaming from the hilltops as currently married couples would be under the same contract. But it would not harm my marriage, I don’t care what the government calls it, and I could care less what any religion calls it, we define our marriage in personal terms, and the law by the legal term )

He's just mad. So mad it makes him silly-stupid.

It brings out his inner bigot nicely though.

Same sex couples want nothing short of real marriage just like hetero couples. And I agree with them, they should have it.

So your dopey plan won't work. Hetero couples don't have to settle for civil unions and homosexual couples should not have to either. Nor should polyamorists.

Is this the start of a new Big D straw man? "You're too stupid to comprehend my enlightened position Mormon boy"?

Under what I just said, they would be 100% equal, as the government wouldn’t recognize heterosexual marriage either.

Equal rights.
No other argument is needed.

Frankie may feel different. But ya can't argue for "marriage equality" for those forms of marriage you like, and ignore those you don't. Plural marriage people are knocking on the rainbow clubhouse door. They want some of that "marriage equality" you keep harping about.
They have it. They have the same right to marry more than one person everybody else does.

Stupid troll, equal means "the same". Everybody is treated equally, the same, when it comes to getting married to more than one spouse, so it's not an equal rights issue. Are you really so dumb you don't understand that? But everybody is not treated equally when it comes to getting married to a man (or a woman), so that is an equal rights issue.

Should everybody be able to marry more than one spouse? Well, why not start a forum and talk about it?(Notice, I'm not stating a position on polygamy, it's just a red herring in this forum.)

Exactly right, it is an argument to get people to say something that they can re-apply opposed to same sex marriage

It is an old tactic

If you remove gender diversity from marriage in the name of same sex marriage, to create a new standard of gender segregated marriage...

To make your government gender blind to mothers, sisters, daughters, fathers, brothers and sons;

That's on you. We naturally reject ersatz gender equality. Women in combat units is a sick joke!

Sure. Just like homosexuals have the same right to marry the opposite sex person of their choice that everyone else does.

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

If heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

Tell it to the judge. Submit a friend of the court memo and tell him polygamy shouldn't be allowed because it's a red herring. And an old tactic.

Brilliant plan dippy! Now sell it to everyone. I suggest you start with gay couples. Tell them that you are going to downgrade their marriages, but it's OK because you're going to do it to hetero couples too.

Your dumb plan demonstrates how little you know about the subject.

Ted Nugent has been lost in the north 40 for years, that's why he is kept there under lock and key.
