I have already even though it's really irrelevant because equal protection of the law should not have to be justified to your satisfaction.

And you would have known I have argued doggedly for poly marriage rights if you weren't so busy trolling and being angry and stupid.

Hope that helps.

We don't allow children to marry. Are they being deprived of equal treatment? Yes. And the Court gave legitimate State reasons for doing so.
NICE!

So why is polygamy illegal? Why don’t Mormons have the right to enter into multiple marriages sanctified by their church, if not the state? There’s a short answer to this question but not a very good one: polygamy is illegal and unprotected by the Constitution because the Supreme Court doesn’t like it.

Over one hundred years ago, the Court held in Reynolds v. U.S. that polygamy was “an offence against society.” The Reynolds decision upheld the criminal conviction of a man accused of taking a second wife in the belief that he had a religious duty to practice polygamy, a duty he would violate at risk of damnation. The Court compared polygamy to murders sanctified by religious belief, such as human sacrifice or the burning of women on their husbands’ funeral pyres.

When poly goes to court. Please be sure to show up and tell them poly shouldn't be allowed "because it's a completely separate issue, your honor"

Too funny!

I'm not a Mormon. I don't know how the Mormon church decides its rules. They can marry whomever they want as far as I'm concerned, and they really don't need anyone's permission.

So can you. Except in NJ you can't marry someone of the same sex or more than one person at a time. So why do we whine, eh? We're all equal like that.

Huh? When poly goes to court...poly shouldn't be allowed? WTF????? That makes about as much sense as a screendoor on a submarine.

Poly is a separate issue from the topic of this thread. Jesus Christ, you are defective.

No it's not.

If someone mentions opposite sex marriage you don't whine at all. Why do you whine when someone mentions poly marriage?

Let me answer. It's because you are a hypocrite and have no argument.

I support equal protection. You do not.

You are a hypocrite and now you're trying to pull your old "Frankie's a liar" straw man.
Tell us about those child molesting welfare cheating Mormons again bigot. And why they don't deserve equal protection.
You attack any supporters of same sex marriage, even if they say they are not against poly marriage

Your attacks are clear, and directed

You have already stated you have no personal interest in poly.

You only use it to attack anyone and everyone that supports same sex marriage, regardless of their position on Poly

You are a joke, and everyone sees it

Poly IS off topic. Jesus.... you're like a four year old.

Equal protection is GUARANTEED by our constitution. It's clear to me that you don't comprehend what 'equal protection' means. It does NOT mean everyone gets equal rights.

Ok.... I can see you're already on bottle #2 so get back to us when you can follow the conversation. Conversing with you is like watching a Monty Python sketch from Life of Brian.
