Yes you did say that.

You have no argument so you try to use dishonesty, but it fails because you are stupid.

You and Big D say that since some polygamists are bad, we should deny equality to all polygamists.

Now that I point out your bigotry and ignorance you're going to try and lie your way out of it.

But the current definition violates the 14th Amendment.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia correctly says the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not apply to sex discrimination or sexual orientation cases. Activist federal judges, on the other hand, see the 14th Amendment as a blank check to legalize whatever conduct they happen to approve of, such as abortion, homosexuality, & gay marriage. But these activist judges are destroying federalism by bringing about a massive transfer of power from The People and the States to their own black-robed selves.

So, there's that...

Are you two trolls flooding the forum with posts about polygamy because you realize there isn't a good argument against gay marriage?
(One of you is clearly flying false colors, pretending to be for gay marriage.0
No, dumb-ass, they are examining the ramifications of this case. Confusing for you, but, there it is. There are, as you well know, many arguments against SSM, but you refuse to acknowledge any. It does not invalidate them, it merely infuriates you to the point of ignorance. As we all know.

Equal rights.
No other argument is needed.
<quoted text>
They have it. They have the same right to marry more than one person everybody else does.
<quoted text>
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.)
There's no equality when gays can change prevailing laws and customs, but polygamists cannot. Stupid Chongo...

I don't make my argument based on sexual orientation, but on gender.
A man can marry a woman, so a woman should have that same right.

That is entirely incorrect. Because some things are simply wrong. Get it ?

Sorry, not going to play, because you're talking about related individuals. You're also aware of the "taboo" pertaining to incest and the resultant problems from swimming in too small a pool.
I was talking about two non-related consenting adults.
Game over.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =wT-8Dm1VThcXX
"Taboo" ? You, of course, refer to the views of the majority, correct ? The same majority that has no rights to dictate what happens behind closed doors, between consenting adults, correct ? Hmmm...Something about this seems wrong... Oh, of course, SSM was "taboo" a few years ago, but that has been changed, due to frenetic lobbying by a minority. So, then, if that can change, why, so can laws against incest...Especially in light of the argument, used by the SSM crowd, that procreation is not a part of the equation for marriage. And, of course, this can be insured by the use of contraceptives. Hey, problem solved. You forgot to include the important parts... Now, it is game over.
