A federal judge in California has knocked down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, ruling Wednesday that the state's controversial Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

<quoted text>What is the topic of this thread?
Start a thread on Poly, go for it. As I have told you I don't care if you want 4 wives, it does not change my marriage at all. But the change must be made by the people who wish it. Th laws on polygamy have been around for a very long time. Prop 8 was written to abolish an existing right, same sex marriage.
Aw poor Jizzy, he's mad because prop 8 also prohibited polygamy. If you truly wanted marriage equality, why shouldn't it include poly? If it doesn't is that really equality Jizzy? Think hard, ask for help.

Stop whining! It's a day to celebrate equality!

A victory for marriage equality is a victory for polygamy too! WOO~HOOO! Ah good times!
You're right, brother. I think folks with a polyamorous orientation should be granted the same legal right to marry as hetro/homosexuals. Thinking otherwise is just plain bigotry! Here’s why:

1. Polyamorous Orientation: 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). 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.

2. Separation of Church and State: Many state marriage laws codify and uphold religious principles that unjustly and unconstitutionally force polysexuals to conform to non-secular tradition.

3. Consequential Neutrality: Permitting men to marry at least two wives (polygyny) or women to marry multiple husbands (polyandry) will not in any way infringe on monogamists’ right to marry only one spouse. Therefore, polygamy should be permitted because of its neutral consequence to other valid forms of marriage.

4. Consequentialism: Studies have shown that parental household income and parental involvement correlates positively with many lifelong success indicators. Since multiple-parent households have greater income potential and more parental time than monogamist parents, children raised by stable polygamist parents stand to be more educated, healthy, well-adjusted and productive as adults than their monogamist-raised counterparts. Considering the significant long-term social benefits of polygamous relationships, governments should not discriminatorily deny their citizens’ right to this equally valid lifestyle.

The Supreme Court has dismissed a closely-watched appeal over same-sex marriage on jurisdictional grounds, ruling Wednesday private parties do not have "standing" to defend California's voter-approved ballot measure barring gay and lesbians couples from state-sanctioned wedlock. The ruling permits same-sex couples in California to legally marry. The 5-4 decision avoids for now a sweeping conclusion on whether same-sex marriage is a constitutionally-protected "equal protection" right that would apply to all states. The case is Hollingsworth v. Perry (12-144).
Frank take note, not one word about Polygamy, not one word.
Aw, Jizzy is mad because "marriage is a man and a woman" is struck down and that means one less law against poly. Poor poor Jizzy.

Once again showing your total lack of reading comprehension skills.... Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage.
Did you see the big pro=polygamy crowds in front of SCOTUS? No, me neither. Did you hear all the reports about a victory for polygamy? No, me neither. Get a grip, loser.
Aw, poor X-box. She's mad because there is one less law against polygamy. Poor, poor hypocrite.

Don't worry, there's still that pesky federal discriminatory law against it. Cheer up! You can still send people to prison for marrying the people they love! That should make you happy. Polygamy is one step closer to being legal. Get a grip, loser.

Hi, my name is KiMare. I got no real argument about gays being married so I love to make up shyt about imaginary constraints and research. I love procreation and I so wish it were a valid argument. I love talking about nothing more than procreation and how gays can't mutually procreate as a couple. I honestly think they are unaware of this fact and that by repeating it over and over I am somehow hurting them!!!!! I'm an idiot fundie.
Hi, my name is Rizzo. I love polygamy. I think that if I continually pretend that polygamy has something to do with gays being married, I can come out of this forum a winner!!! Polygamy, polygamy, polygamy!!!! I love polygamy!!!! I want more than one pussy to pound. I really hope the gays open that up for me!! I love polygamy!!!!

Once again the entire Glendora city council, Judy Nelson, Gene Murabito, Joseph Santoro, Karen Davis and Douglas Tessitor are complete idiots.

Tuesday June 25, 2013 city council meeting was the last straw in their insanity act they put on for the public at large who can stomach watching them act stupid all night long.

The act includes double talk, stupid talk, ignorant talk and just plain crazy talk form each of the Glendora, California city council member's.

Sounds like the same people that voted in the great obama telling the rest of us that we don't matter. Heard it before. Now I don't hear those Obama fans so much while he's spending another 100 million to vacation in Africa again. I hope his Mother in law and niece enjoy it too, I'm sure the rest of us need to cut back and stop wasting fuel.

Bravo!

There's also a substantial First Amendment claim for religious polygamists to engage in multiple marriages according to the dictates of their faith. That is the one that bothers many people of tolerance and diversity.

I have a dream that someday men and women will be allowed to walk naked in public, and our children will get to witness women flaunting their unclothed bodies, men kissing multiple wives, women kissing multiple husbands, and men kissing multiple husbands, and celebrating their unbridled freedom and identity in public processions where display of physical affection and nudity engender exalting pride. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know today, that we, as a people, will get to the libertarian land!

Gene Murabito acted once again like a complete PIG, but who really care he just has a pig personality anyway.

ED gave it right back to a evil person on the Glendora, California city council.

Once again the entire Glendora city council, Judy Nelson, Gene Murabito, Joseph Santoro, Karen Davis and Douglas Tessitor are complete idiots.

Cali law on ploygamy.
281.(a) Every person having a husband or wife living, who marries
any other person, except in the cases specified in Section 282, is
guilty of bigamy.
(b) Upon a trial for bigamy, it is not necessary to prove either
of the marriages by the register, certificate, or other record
evidence thereof, but the marriages may be proved by evidence which
is admissible to prove a marriage in other cases; and when the second
marriage took place out of this state, proof of that fact,
accompanied with proof of cohabitation thereafter in this state, is
sufficient to sustain the charge.
282. Section 281 does not extend to any of the following:
(a) To any person by reason of any former marriage whose husband
or wife by such marriage has been absent for five successive years
without being known to such person within that time to be living.
(b) To any person by reason of any former marriage which has been
pronounced void, annulled, or dissolved by the judgment of a
competent court.
283. Bigamy is punishable by a fine not exceeding ten thousand
dollars ($10,000) or by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding
one year or in the state prison.
It does not apply to same sex marriage.
Do you have that framed and hung on your wall Jizzy? So you can look at it while you pleasure yourself?

Do you think that is right hypocrite? Tell us why it's good for polygamy to mot be allowed but it's bad for SSM to not be allowed. I'd love to hear it hypocrite.

Did you read prop 8? Did prop 8 get struck down today? Did "marriage is a man and a woman" get struck down? Think hard. Ask for help. Sound things out. Prop 8 prohibited poly as sure as it prohibited SSM. Glad it bothers you so much hypocrite. There is now one less law against polygamy in California. Spin that.
