The people , twice voted, to clearly codify in law, a definition of marriage that existed since the birth of the republic, throughout virtually all of Western Civilization. No one's "rights" were infringed.
Sup Paco? Twice the people voted for a unconstitutional law. Dang you people are S-L-O-W

You are advocating that the religious freedom given in the 1st admen. Grants religious freedom. YOU have posted it. Now if we allow Poly based on religious freedom, HOW can we deny them the very right to marry a 9 year old girl???
YOU cant have it both ways. If you support the religious rights as you have said then you support child abuse, rape, you pervert
Any abuse within any relationship, monogamous or polygamous, should be dealt with by any applicable laws. If all the adults involved are consenting, there is no issue. Perhaps you could explain this apparent contradiction in societal attitudes. A man can father several children with several different women, and it has become perfectly acceptable. However, if a man does that, regards the women as his wives, and they, as consenting adults, view him as their husband, society, and the state, views that as unacceptable. Why?

In the eyes of the law, marriage is a contract between 2 adult human beings. So no, you cannot. You may have an alcoholic parade if you obtain the financing and necessary permits.

People voted on a ballot initiative that was unconstitutional, as it infringed on the rights of others. In the US, we have a system of checks and balances to correct these situations. Sometimes it just takes a while.
Was that the fault of the people that voted? You do understand the outcome of that vote says a lot about how people really feel.

Welcome to the People's Republic of Amerikka. Where in the constitution is marriage even mentioned? So if a federal marriage amendment, for the sake of discussion, is added to the constitution, would that be "unconstitutional"?

<quoted text>Yes I would, as long as religion has no bearing on the law. But we know, thats a lie. The only people who wish Polygamy are doing so based on religion. Then what, child brides???? Frankie you are dead wrong and you know it.
No. you are wrong. Some if not many atheists are polygamists. But thanks for admitting you believe we should deny equal rights based on religion.

Did you see the article on gay polygamy in the Advocate? Those 3 guys aren't religious. I wish them well in their fight for marriage equality. I guess you do too as long as they are not religious?

Yes, they were. Their right to marry an adult human being of their choosing was denied. And this was over-ruled.
Please point to any state law, where those exact words are contained in any state marriage law? So if a person chooses to marry a sibling, that should be allowed?

Wrong Paco, the judge found the law to be in violation of the constitution. The 9th backed him up. Scotus dumped it for lack of standing. Dang you people are S-L-O-W

It used to be a contract between two people of different gender. We dropped the gender part. Why can't we drop the number part? Why is your version of marriage better than anyone elses version and why should it be the only one allowed?

"Some if not many atheists are polygamists"

Site your stats.

If you are for equal marriage rights, based on religion, then you support child brides. Wat to go Mr Pedeo.
