You implied they laughed AT people. They did not.

But how silly is this argument? I object to your vindictive partisanship making this issue more contentious and difficult than it need be. That's my point, thank you for affirming it. You don't encourage social change by laughing at people wary of it. You hinder it.

You can tell them that a hundred times ( I have, or near to it ) but they cannot give up on that argument, because it is the only thread left for them to hang to, the argument was already dismissed in every court it was brought to, the thread has broken.
Now they are on the ground, defeated and still trying to find that broken thread.
Any first week cultural anthropology or sociology student knows the close association of children and marriage. Your attempts to spin it otherwise speak volumes. There is no need to be so dishonest as to repeatedly falsely claim that anyone is saying procreation is a requirement of marriage. No one has said that. To deny the association is spin.

Jizzy says polygamy shouldn't be allowed because some religious people practice it. Jizzy is a hypocrite.

Big D gives lip service to those fundies using polygamy to commit their crimes of welfare fraud and child abuse. He'd "vote for it" forgetting that votes don't matter sometimes.

I have aced classes in both physical and cultural anthropology.

There has also been a close association of slavery in history to successful families

There has been close association of domination physically of the male over the female in the history of families

Just because something may have been true in history, does not make it a good thing.

The ability or intent to have children is not a requirement for a marriage, that point is moot.

Millions of couples in the US either cannot have children, or have chosen not too, we have not denied any of these couples the right to marry, nor do we as a society look down on them or their marriages.

There may be some ignorant morons that do, but I will not allow the ignorant to define my marriage or anyone elseís.

"But we both know and understand that procreation has nothing to do with marriage. its not a requirment in any state. So your point of being a steril marriage hold's no any water. We don't mandate procreation in a heterosexual marriage so how can you EVEN try to in same sex marriage. Now go away you really bore me.
As to "hijack the word", look it up fool, you will find that same sex marriage is found in the deffination. "

"We both know and understand no such thing.
Only a ss couple who need protection to have sex would tell a heterosexual couple who need protection not to procreate that it doesn't matter.
Ss couples just don't equate to marriage. You will never be more than 'marriage LIGHT'. REALLY light. So light, relationship would qualify!
Smile. "
Well Frank, KMare, seems to think that procreation is a requirement. Have a great day, Gumba
I never read anyone here saying procreation is a REQUIREMENT for marriage. Have a bad day.

It's a stupid argument. You imply they laughed AT people wary of SSM. They did not. Your spin is another of your lies. As is you "Liar!" straw man.

It's of course good that SCOTUS isn't vindictive like you.

This social change will happen quicker and easier without your dishonesty and hate.

<quoted text>Marriage, is based upon two(or more) consenting adults( depending upon religion, or country) entering into a legal, binding contract.
Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) is a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that establishes rights and obligations between the spouses, between the spouses and their children, and between the spouses and their in-laws.[1] The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. When defined broadly, marriage is considered a cultural universal. In many cultures, marriage is formalized via a wedding ceremony. In terms of legal recognition, most sovereign states and other jurisdictions limit marriage to opposite-sex couples or two persons of opposite gender in the gender binary, and a diminishing number of these permit polygyny, child marriages, and forced marriages. In modern times, a growing number of countries and other jurisdictions have lifted bans on and have established legal recognition for same-sex marriage, interracial marriage, and interfaith marriage. In some cultures, marriage is recommended or compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity.

You obviously didn't ace English or logic.

No one here has said that procreation is a requirement for marriage. Why do you attempt to spin it that they did? Why do you attempt to spin away the close association you learned when you "aced" bonehead Sociology 101?

Slavery? Wow.

But you are attempting to justify denying marriage equality to them based on the fact that their religion encourages polygamy. Same thing. Worse actually.

What harm would a marriage of three consenting adult atheists cause you?
