<quoted text>Hi Frank. The people requesting polygamy are for the most part doing so based on religious doctrine.
What would you do or say if the local government in Union City, Cali. Passed a law that required you to go to church( Chosen by them) every Sunday. You could not use your PC, TV, go to the movies or go shopping, no shots of Dickle, not a single can of PBR. All based on religious doctrine, that was not your chosen faith. What would you do or say?
You are saying that polygamy shouldn't be allowed because you don't like some of the people who practice it. Nice!

How about 3 atheist men? Do they have your blessing to marry?

Welcome California as the 13 state to legalize gay marriage. And with the striking down of DOMA, gays now have legal standing to successfully challenge EVERY state ban on same sex marriage.
I'll be marching in this year's San Francisco's Gay Pride Parade with a new sense of FREEDOM and PRIDE!
Congratulations! This is a day to celebrate!

But the struggle is hardly over. There are still many people being denied marriage equality. Let's not forget them. they matter too.

Bowser - the honey of my choice - and I have mixed emotions regarding this subject. The Big Government ruling class has been "helping the economy" by pumping $Billions of hard earned taxpayer money into a war against a tiny group of ragtag ill clad mostly illiterate Taliban. The question arises as to whether this is a wise expenditure of taxpayer money. Just like the vast majority of American taxpayers, the Taliban does not approve of the absurd notion of "marriages" of two or more persons of the same sex. On the other hand, both Bowser and I are at the forefront of those who applaud the corrupt agenda driven Government legal system. Once the high paid Government judges grant our Homosexual friends the "right" to "marry" one another, the day will soon come when we dog lovers' "equality under the "law" will no longer be denied.

It's irrelevant if I am gay or not. Why does it mater so much to you? I support your right to marry who you want. Do you support others same right? If so, why are you mad at me? if not, you are a hypocrite. Easy!
You're really bad at this.

It doesn't "mater," it's just discussion. It's odd that you wouldn't just say either way, though. Maybe you should seek therapy if you aren't comfortable.

Again, what indicated to you that I was mad? If my previous post had been presented as a question on the SAT, and you indicated by multiple choice answer that the author was "mad," you'd get that question wrong.

I've already stated my position on polygamy.

Many Christians denominations recognize and practice gay marriage. You still might have a chance. What will be your next fight for justice? free drugs, prostitution? Polygamy? Or will you just go home?

Now, let's march for plural marriage, and protect the bi sexual that wants to marry one of each. Freedom and pride for all.

Those who can count can see polygamy doesn't seek equal protection of the law. Those who can't grasp this, yet continue to argue it as though it were a valid point are saying more about themselves than anything else.
I'm sorry you can't count.
what happened to freedom and justice for all? You hypocrite! Now you discriminate against others, making the bi sexual decide between a man or a woman.

Why do you discriminate against people of polyamorous orientation?
They deserve the same rights as you, hypocrite!!

Argument: According to the theory of Genetic Imperative, many men are biologically hardwired or oriented to feel attraction toward multiple women, yet social values and socialization pressures require men to repress expression of these innate impulses (this is true across all socioeconomic, ethnic and cultural groups- think Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods etc.). Since a predominant number of men have inborn sexual tendencies that are incompatible with a monogamous lifestyle, by no fault of their own, marriage ought to be progressively redefined as a socially approved relationship between an undefined number of consenting spouses.

That's true, polyamorous orientation has been around as long as the homosexual.
