True, as is the nature of potential enemies. A major ground campaign against a viable power is unlikely.
Fortunately that is less likely.

But I am responding to you Fruitcake.
Let's take a look and see how that sounds replacing same sex marriage with polygamy.
"I have said from the beginning that I donít have a problem with the concept of same sex marriage itself, just many of the practitioners of it who are guilty of other crimes. A rather large percentage of practitioners of it.
Go after those criminals to the full extent of the law and I have no problem with same sex marriage."
Listen jackass. We already have laws against all the evils your imagination conjures up against polygamy. There's no reason the throw the baby out with the bathwater. There's no reason to deny committed adult polyamorists a shot at a real family with all the benifits every other family gets.
Some homosexuals in same sex marriages are bad, do you want to ban gay marriage? If so you are not a hyopcrite, just a bigot I guess. If not you are both.
You are such an idiot It is amazing to me you can type

I think the same crimes committed by homosexuals, polygamists, Heterosexuals or however else you want to divide people should be treated exactly the same. The criminals should be persecuted to the full extent of the law.

Your problem is that the general population ( not me ) sees only the negative side of poly marriage, and until you get better advocates of it, it will be a steep hill to climb.

again, I am not opposed to poly marriage

No, your ignorance and bigotry is NOT my problem. It's yours.

Need I re-post some of your hateful rants? Why bother. You cannot see you are being as bad as the people you despise.

Dummy the only thing I have been trying to convey is that the issue has a public image problem.

But you are not listening

You cannot find a single post where I said I personally was opposed, I did say I donít expect any movement whatsoever on the issue.

You will find a LOT that say I donít think it will happen for decades, you will find a lot where I have issues with many that practice it, you will find lots of them teasing you on being so obsessed.

You wont find one where I said I personally was opposed, I have said the general public is opposed due to the image problem your obsession has.

Yes everyone can read except you

"No I am a very rational human being that is not opposed to the concept, but is horrified at the actions and disposition of everyone he knows of that is an adherent either actual or supporter of the practice. Including you."

"Not opposed to it", and such a glowing opinion of "the practice"!

Not opposed. Obsessed with hate for those who practice it though.

It's like dominoes falling. Wait until poly is federally legal, you're going to be unhappy when you see the same thing happen state by state.

Me, I'm happy for both groups. You, just one! Tough sh!t.
