Donít know actually those would be interesting figures, I see no reason not to support Poly, you could consider it a full employment effort for our nationís lawyers ( can you imagine a divorce of one person out of 4?):P
I donít have those figures, I do have the ones on same sex marriage however.
None of those issues are in the court cases in front of the courts right now, go get your case and bring it to the courts and we can weigh in on it.
But you are not going to frighten anyone with that crap that isnít already frightened by same sex marriage, the slippery slope argument is not going to work on anyone that is not already scared half to death... that isnít me
"...scared half to death..."

Oy vey.

are you in for some sad times ahead LOL, you donít even realize what is going on.
States are approving Same sex marriage with voter support right and left, states that had banned same sex marriage are starting to reverse those bans ( see Nevada )
I'm sure it will just break his heart with sadness.

I donít have any power at all, I am just laughing at folks that are so frightened of a word.
Marriage from a legal standpoint is a legal contract, that is all it is. There are believers in one religion that feel one way about it, there are believers of other religions that feel another way about it, and none of them agree, there are thousands of Christian and Jewish churches that want to preform same sex marriage.
No one speaks for all of them, and no single religion owns the word "marriage"
The only actual distinction is from the governments perspective, which is a legal contract.
I donít care if it is between opposite sex couples or same sex couples or groups of people ( adults ), heck I donít care if it is non-romantic couples ( elderly ladies that depend on one another )
It makes no difference to me, and does not affect me or my marriage in any way whatsoever.
But I do find it humorous how frightened some people are, by others being given the same rights as they have themselves.
It is just funny to me
"Jewish churches that want to "preform"..." There are no Jewish churches, son.

"But I do find it humorous how frightened some people are...It is just funny to me..." HAR!HAR!HAR! So funny! People frightened! YUK!YUK!YUK! So funny!

No it isnít different, the fact that I consider your marriage a sham and the fact that you consider their marriage a sham is meaningless.
Legally they ( and you ) are married.. period
The legal part is still up for grabs.

The distinctions can't be changed. Even by a law.

Neither did I. Beyond saying that my medals are real and Bill's is fake. You are the one who said I was a hero, dummy. Remember?

Why did you feel it necessary to lie?

I assume nothing. A ss couple is mutually incapable of procreation. You really didn't know that?

As to liberals, Benghazi comes to mind today.
The IRS desecrating it's integrity to abuse it's power.
I could go on, just on today's events...

Oh, and Colin Power supported putting a community organizer in charge of two wars and maybe the most serious fiscal crisis we have ever experienced. Racism is the only logical reason he would do so.

Smirk.

I think excluding homosexuals from fighting for us was very stupid. From my experience they make fine soldiers and sailors. Who cares if someone peeks at your little winky dink anyway?
I appreciate your experience. There are other to consider however. I listened today on NPR, of all places, to a woman note the sexual assault of a young male soldier that was so violent, he was hospitalized.

So you are now supporting equality, that men and women soldiers should be housed together because "who cares if someone peeks"?

The fact is, this is where denial leads. I mean both the rise in sexual assaults, and you looking like a fool trying to defend it.

By the way, history and I both warned about putting males and females in close quarters. Homosexuality only multiplies the danger.

At the expense of our nation's safety.

Traitorous stupidity.

That is a fact, a majority of American voters now approve of same sex marriage in the US. That could not be the case without a tremendous number of heterosexuals ( you and I ) supporting same sex marriage.
Guess what happens to reality when you take a poll on it?

Snicker.

Then what is the point? If it means anything and everything, why bother with a legally recognized contract?

Why restrict it to couples? Does a person need a license from the state to love? Maybe in Nevada......

GOP/Republican's can't get a clear thought rolling if the end of the world depended on it.

Let alone gathering enough sober heads to cast a vote.

I went to the Butt Hutt in Nevada in the late 60's and one of the pretty ladies had a button on that said "Free Love". Not having much money I chose her. When we got to her room I said "This is free, right? Your button says free love." She replied. "The love is free, the sex will cost you $50."

P.S. Gave her $70!
