If there were no law against polygamy and prop 8 wasn't struck down would polygamy be allowed in CA?
But there IS a law against polygamy, Flunkie. Reality.... check into it. Stop with the ridiculous 'what if' arguments.

Stop with your ridiculous argument that "a woman" means many women.

No, it's hardly over. It's not over until every consenting adult who wants to marry is allowed to marry. And I guess that will have to wait until bigots like you die off.

<quoted text>I would love to talk with you about WWII in the Pacific, my father and all my uncles are veterans of it. I was married to a Filipina and have heard many stories of the Japanese occupation from her people. I lived in Japan in 1969-1970 with my Japanese girlfriend whose father, like mine, was a combat veteran, just on the other side and have heard his stories over many beers. The irony, right? I wrote my father about this he said he wished he could be there he held no grudge.
That sounds like an interesting story,
you should post i!

Oh, judging from history, it will NEVER be legal. My death has nothing to do with whether polygamy remains illegal. The harms of polygamy are well documented. You don't like them.... too bad for you. Your arguments won't convince the Court of anything other than you belong in the witless protection program.

Get an argument. I call bullshIt on your ridiculous "harms". The funniest one is the roving gangs of young men high on testosterone wreaking havoc, raping and pillaging, searching for wives! Prlceless. And the one rich guy hogs all the wives one is the second funniest.

Not here though. But yeah, it's a great story. Drinking and having a good time with a man who very well might have tried to kill my father or vice versa. And sleeping with his daughter.

Are you disputing the experts, Flunkie? It's all right here: http://www.courts.gov.bc.ca/jdb-txt/SC/11/15/...

27] A reference in this forum enables the participants to create an evidentiary record impossible in the typical appellate reference. The participants in the present proceeding embraced that opportunity and compiled a record that is remarkable not only for its size, but also for the breadth and diversity of its contents. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that the record embodies the bulk of contemporary academic research into polygamy.

[28] Much of the evidence comprises affidavits and expert reports. Over 90 such are before me. In large measure, these were exchanged and filed with the Court in advance of the hearing according to a schedule directed by the Court. Approximately 22 of the affiants and experts were then examined and cross-examined during the hearing phase of the proceeding.

[29] The expert witnesses represent a broad range of disciplines including anthropology, psychology, sociology, law, economics, family demography, history and theology. The caliber and breadth of knowledge of these experts is impressive. Some undertook original research specifically for this reference. Others are clinical experts who offer case study observations from their practices. Yet others have studied aspects of polygamy relevant to their particular disciplines for years.
