And I ask: What gives us the right to restrict the number to "one" ?
If nobody else will answer this, then I will:

Our right to limit marriage to one person is backed by the fact that no stigma in our psyche rationally provokes us to want to mate with more than one person. Maybe on a conscious level that may seem like the case sometimes, but it doesn't resonate subconsciously, or at least has not yet been shown to by psychologists.

Which is exactly the opposite case for homosexuality. Scientists, biologists, psychologists - they've all reached the same conclusion regarding this. When it's looked at in an objective, unbiased light, any experienced practician can see the trend: homosexuality is just as genetic as taste buds. The desire to commit bigamy is not.

Gay relationships are not the equivalent of bigamy and shouldn't be equated as such.

Yeah, we get it- you are a bigot. You don't care about equal right's just your cause.
I'm sorry, which side of this argument are you on again? The anti-equality one?

Yea, the pro-equality guy here is quite the "bigot", eh?

"pro-equality?" Hardly, you're just interested in a cause, not really interested in equality, but then again none of you really are.

But hey, you guys never let rational thought get in the way of a good protest. I guess it makes you guys feel like you have a purpose.

So you are against equal rights for everyone? You are against the right of everyone to live their life the way they choose?

I guess you really aren't all that interested in keeping the government out of your bedroom after all.

You bet, buddy.

History has shown this: given enough momentum, a rights-activism movement in America cannot be stopped (i.e. racial equality, gender equality, the American revolution...)

Everyone has a purpose. That's what sets the two sides of this debate apart; one side's extreme is shown to consistently show more faith in human capability than the other.

And it ain't your side, if I may resort to briefly using Texan slang.

If you want to legalize multiple-partner marriage than go right on ahead, see where you get.

Frank got his azz handed to him. Godsmacked tried to discuss Poly marriage with him. All the boy had was Ad- Hominem attacks. Please do click on the link, and read for yourselves. Frankie is a troll.

So because it might be "difficult", that is a good enough reason to deny someone the equal right to be happy?
Stupid, don't have a right to be happy. As horrible as you are, you obviously aren't, and no law is being broken.

Do you have a point? You post doesn't have anything to do with arguments for or against gay marriage.

For those who don't know:
Frankie Rizzo is just a troll who is against gay marriage. He's flying under false colors pretending he is in favor of gay marriage, and flooding the forum with posts about the red herring of polygamy as a distraction. He's so dumb, he thinks I'm talking about a fish when I use the term "red herring".
So true. Hes just another jackass who thinks hes come up with a sly way to hate on Gay Americans. Its laughable that he thinks calling a Gay American a hypocrite makes them mad or hurts their feelings. When hes put in his place he resorts to name calling (a typical hater tactic to marginalize Gay Americans).

Yes and so did I. He's not interested in it, he's a troll with an anger management problem and a very unhealthy obsession with me.

He created two troll thread against me then he says he's "in my head". When of course it's obviously the other way around.

He's just like his dopey minion Godsmacked. Declares he's winning when he'l losing badly. They both have had a bad day.
