I support Same sex marriage, always have
which is what this topic is about
I would also happen to vote in favor of poly marriage if it ever comes up, I donít expect it to in the near future because it has no real active supporters that are even willing to go out and get signatures for such a measure. But if it even comes up, I will vote along with it because I see no reason against it.
No I actually am a supporter of equality, I donít attack ever Same Sex marriage supporter as you do, I donít defend every opponent of same sex marriage as you do.
I am not a fake, as you are
There are plenty of people actively supporting poly. Just because your little sheltered life as a janitor in Modesto doesn't see them does not mean they don't exist.

Hell, there are two TV reality shows about poly families. And they are doing a lot to educate ignorant folks like you that they are good people. Get out more often jackass. Become aware you ignorant bigot!

And how much support must you see to justify ending injustice? Is there a number? If just a few people are being denied equal protection is that OK with you? Seems to be the case.

If you are right, then we will be seeing that in the forefront of the news, and lots of legal cases and we will be seeing more ballot measure on the subject across the country

If you are full of crap then we wonít be seeing much movement on the subject at all as the overturn of Prop 8 will have no effect on its legality at all.

It seems to be OK with you, you arenít out getting signatures for it, you arenít actively supporting it, you are doing nothing but trying ( and failing ) to throw it in the fact of people that support Same Sex marriage while doing absolutely nothing constructive about it yourself.

For you it is just a way to attack others that are not doing the same thing you are not doing.

Yes Jizzy gets real mad! But it's fun to make you and Jizzy mad.

It drives you both crazy that I support SSM, you'll both lie and cheat and get real mad to avoid facing that fact.

And to avoid even discussing marriage equality for marriages you don't approve of.

Authorities say video surveillance footage from an Albany Wal-Mart store shows a uniformed U.S. Army officer being attacked by a man who had verbally harassed the soldier for his military service.

This Asian guy is a Chinese native, hence he should be shipped by to his communist mother f country.

Along with Piers Morgan that idiot British wankers.

Yes that is why people that want to Marry Space Aliens are with you, same wording.
We will have to find someone with some legal sense to explain to you that it still didnít effect anyone as there was no change to its illegality either in passing it, or overturning it, there will be no change with respect to the law, prop 8 had zero effect on it other than to add to the roadblock that was already there.
We need more people, the larger number of people that want to marry Space Aliens have accepted you Poly folks, how about the Sheep herders?
:D
Space aliens already marry each other Martians (men) marry Venusians (women).

PROGRESSIVE SLATE.COM ADVOCATES POLYGAMY AS NEXT STEP IN MARRIAGE EQUALITY

SPRINGFIELD - The left-wing furor over State Rep. Tom Morrison (R-Arlington Heights) comparing legalizing gay marriage to legalizing polygamy seems to be a tempest in a teapot created by gay rights supporters. According to one progressive magazine, Morrison is absolutely correct.

Today, Slate.com †promotes the legalization of polygamy using the gay marriage terminology of "equal rights." Is legalizing polygamy next? "One can only hope," Slate.com writer Jillian Keenan says. After all, "If a woman wants to marry a man with three other wives, that's her damn choice."

She continues: "Yes, really. While the Supreme Court and the rest of us are all focused on the human right of marriage equality, letís not forget that the fight doesnít end with same-sex marriage. We need to legalize polygamy, too. Legalized polygamy in the United States is the constitutional, feminist, and sex-positive choice. More importantly, it would actually help protect, empower, and strengthen women, children, and families."

She goes on ...
For decades, the prevailing logic has been that polygamy hurts women and children. That makes sense, since in contemporary American practice that is often the case. In many Fundamentalist Latter-day Saints††polygamous communities, for example,†women and underage girls are forced into polygamous unions†against their will. Some boys, who represent the surplus of males, are brutally†thrown out of their homes†and driven into homelessness and poverty at very young ages. All of these stories are tragic, and the criminals involved should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.(That goes without saying, I hope.)

But legalizing consensual adult polygamy wouldnít legalize rape or child abuse. In fact, it would make those crimes easier to combat.

Thus, the effort in earnest to legalize polygamy as the next step after the redefiniton of marriage gay rights in Illinois are advocating with SB 10.†

Who'll be the first to apologize to Rep. Morrison?†

i can ask the same of your side - why does it need to lie, hate or distort anything to have any legitimacy?
if you don't care what the judge says, then that's on you. the judge is the one deciding the case - and now it's before the supreme court. they'll make the final decision. neither you nor i make those legal decisions as we're not seated judges. and by the way, the republicans put him on the bench in the first place, based on his history. for example, he's argued against "the gay games" in court. pretty laughable that you're so convinced he's biased considering that he'd argued against the gay games.
what are you going to do when both Prop 8 and DOMA fall? continue whining like you are now or just shut up and be a grown up and live your life like millions of other americans? the choice is yours my friend.
He had no legitimate basis to rule otherwise regarding gays using the Olympic name. That was proven by the SCOTUS decision.

Please tell me where I have lied or distorted any of the core issues. Even if it were true, it does not excuse the behavior for anyone. Again, why is that necessary for any legitimate cause.

History shows that often decisions violate common sense and just decisions. Nothing changes the fact that ss couples do not equate to marriage at any level. Even a SCOTUS decision cannot change that.

Smile.
