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

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.
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.

How many times do I need to remind you that I never made any argument against polygamy? If you support that cause, go for it. Do what it takes to get the law changed. I will not oppose you. I do not care what people do as long as they are not harming others.

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?
Why is it if a man has sex with a thousand different ladies , he is called a stud. But if a woman has sex with a thousand different men, she is a slut?

In the eyes of the law, at least in 30 plus states, marriage is a union of husband and wife.

Oh, you don't see anyone else mad, even though Frankie is not? I'll help you, son, look at VV. He gets all meltdown at anything. Look at the now-defunct Rose-no-ho, who told people to give their kids pearl necklaces. Look at Lililth, who says that she'll gut anyone who says anything bad to her "daughter". I could go on, but I don't need to. You've been using "Selecta-Vision" glasses for too long. If you don't see them getting all EMO, then, you're a moron.
