The DOMA prevents polygamy equally to preventing same sex marriage. I know you don't like it that polygamy is equal to same sex marriage but that's your problem fruitcake.
You don't have the market cornered on discrimination, quit acting as if you do.
Well, when the polygamists of the country rise up to take their case before the courts, you can lead their cause.

And no one said that the LGBT community has the market cornered on discrimination. There are plenty of examples of others who are discriminated against.

We are a united group who is seeking specific goals.

Other groups are working on their own projects.

Umm, when have I have I ever said homosexuality is a "sin" or sign of "brokenness"?
OK... Looks like we're getting somewhere...

If you don't believe that homosexuality is a sin or sign of brokenness, then I guess we can count on your support of same-sex marriage.

Thanks in advance...

That goal is the elimination of monogamous conjugal, as in husband and wife, sole legal definition and/or standard in this country. Why does it matter after that who marries who, or doesn't?

The standard of marriage being comprised of TWO PEOPLE is supported by Same-sex marriage advocates.

At no point in any court argument made by proponents of same-sex marriage have we asked for marriage to include more than two people. We've not asked that marriage be allowed between adults and minors, humans and animals, humans and inanimate objects, etc.

One man, one woman; one man, one man; one woman, one woman... That's what we are supporting.

It is deceitful for you to imply that same-sex marriage proponents are in favor polygamy.

Ohhhhhkay.

No one is seriously proposing marriage involving minors, or animals. So let's dispense with that.
One man, one woman; one man, one man; one woman, one woman... That's what we are supporting.
Again, the elimination of the sole legal definition/standard of marriage as a monogamous union of husband AND wife. The essence of what I stated the goal of the movement is.

No deceit.... I stated the obvious, elimination of the sole legal definition/standard of marriage as a monogamous union of husband and wife.

Once that is done, why does it matter who marries who, or doesn't marry who, as long as its between consenting adults?

Another crooked COP. oops I mean more crooked cops.

Bong the Gong and get this mess over with.

A South Lake Tahoe police officer pleaded guilty May 22, 2013 Wednesday to multiple counts of witness tampering and obstruction of an official proceeding.

A three-year, multi-agency investigation involving the FBI led to 44-year-old John Gerald PolandÂ’s arrest in January 2013 on five counts of witness tampering.

Those who would argue against plural marriage have their work cut out for them. The Bible records at least 40 instances of the practice. Confucianism, Islam, Hinduism, and some forms of Mormonism also support it. While Catholicism bans it, other forms of Christianity are somewhat less opposed.

Plural marriage is legal in more than 150 countries, with an estimated 2 billion practitioners and 3 billion supporters. Anthropologists believe that it was the norm through most of human history, until the sixth century Christian influence of the Roman Emperor Justinian. As a North American value, plural marriage is older than monogamy. According to one study of Native American tribes, a full 84 percent of them practiced it.

Natural law arguments also fail. Biologists lately have discovered that in the animal kingdom, there is almost no such thing as monogamy.

In 1878, the Supreme Court in Reynolds v. U.S. called plural marriage "odious," and an "offence against society." In Romer v. Evans (1996), and again in Lawrence v. Texas (2003), Justice Antonin Scalia's dissent warned against legalizing same-sex marriage, noting that once the court struck down a legislature's ability to uphold "morals-based legislation," the ban against plural marriage would be the next thing to go.

Since then, TV shows such as TLC's "Sister Wives," HBO's "Big Love" and Showtime's "Polyamory" have done much to sway public opinion in favor of poly-ness, bringing the concept into the nation's collective living room and consciousness.

Why do you wish to have more than one wife? Do you have one now? I have noticed that you call people stupid all the time. Why do you do that? Is it because they don't agree with you? If thats the reason, may be its your ideas. Think about it for a while.

Why don't you like gay people? Has something happened to you? Are you a Catholic? Was it a Preist. I hope you know that a Pedophile is not gay. Ask Jesus for help.

You stop that right now young man! That's not nice. Just because he supports a man and a woman only, for marriage, doesn't mean he hates anybody.And stop misspelling the family name for some twisted game you seem to be engaged in.
