in the meantime your tax dollars are going to support the Islamic rebels in Syria that would slash your throat for even mentioning a homosexual.

Douglas Tessitor, Judy Nelson, Gene Murabito, Karen Davis and Joseph Santoro are all involved too.
I think the parade most are referring to here are the gay pride parades, not your kkk events. Sorry.

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.

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.
Again. Why does it matter if I am gay? Did you think implying that I am gay just like you was an insult? Is there something wrong with gay? Please tell us about it.

You're really bad at this.

I've never expressed my thoughts or opinions of polygamists or polygamy at any time. Not once. Why do you ASSume you are privy to some emotional status I have concerning either?

No need to answer, the question was rhetorical. Your need to be a jack*ss is already fully documented through your posts.

Polygamy has been around and has been much more widely practiced around the world throughout history than SSM ever was.

Yet now SSM is becoming legal. But polygamy can still land you in prison. Why do these clowns insist we now have "marriage equality"? Why do they celebrate polygamy's illegality? Why are they not hypocrites?

They won't say.

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!

“We’ve always had public nudity in San Francisco—in our parades, beaches, and street fairs, as well as the random naked person wandering through the neighborhood. Public nudity was part of the quirkiness and fabric of the Castro. About two years ago that changed, and it became a seven-days-a-week kind of thing. Every day there were a few, or more than a few, naked men displaying themselves at Castro Farmers’ Market and elsewhere. It created a lot of tension and anger among our residents and, of course, our businesses also weren’t fans. There’d be lines of families waiting to get into the Castro Theatre, and naked guys would be walking around with their genitals at kids’ eye levels.”

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.
I agree. It's a terrible thing for one American to say to another "You don't matter". Just because they are wary of a tremendous social change. Someday maybe someone will marginalize them too. Then they will scream and vomit.
