Like I repeatedly stated but you being a dumbfuck failed to read - I could give a shit less if the incredibly few poloygamists want to pursue their format of marriage as long as it did not include underage brides, coercion or hiding spouses from each other.
Stereotype much?

That inner-bigot really shines through when you get angry.

Yes Dan, we have all suffered through your posts. You are very good at dancing, but not very good at reality.
You are like Rose, trying to speak in all kinds of cryptic terms, trying to leave yourselves a way out of all of your nonsense by attempting to never really commit to anything. The problem is, neither of you are intelligent enough to do so, and not one person is falling for your nonsense.
You cannot claim that you are for equal rights on one hand, and then deny those right's on the other. You cannot claim that it is OK to deny right's from one group because of- A,B,C- and then claim you cannot deny those same right's from another group because A,B,C does not apply to them.
You don't get a pass on being a bigot because you are in favor of same sex marriage anymore than a black person gets a pass on being a racist because of the color of their skin.
Very well said. I couldn't have said it better. Just let me add that Dan is a jackass! And a big dope.

Funny stuff!

The aspect of allowing gays to marry involves itself with the expansion of basic liberties to a grouping of American citizens whom have been previously denied those freedoms...specifically of being allowed to marry the adult of their choice.
Your post above is a sad lie in that you want to infer I would support the government as an entity to control relationships that "they" determine harmful.
First off understand our government is formatted by the people for the purpose of allowing us as U.S. citizens to govern ourselves as free peoples. The fact that the government determined polygamy a problematic and harmful insitution was based on their past occurances with that said insitution in that they found harmful elements such as cultist aspects which led to underage marriages and unwarranted control of subjects within those cults.
I never made the statement you claim nor did I deliver anything which led to that direction...I merely advised facts.
So I can safely point ot you as not only being the dumbass here but as a liar.
Next.
The "aspect of allowing gays to marry..." "..our government is formatted.." a "grouping of American citizens"

It's real funny when dopey Dan tries to sound intelligent! Love it.

What a dope!

Not really.
Marriage involves itself with the basic elements of mutual attraction, a shared love and a willingess to commit to a legal union amongst adults.
Gays can perform that circus trick as well as heterosexuals.
HJeterosexual marriages often times produce horribly abused children so your blanket claim inference that heterosexual marriages protect children more than gay families is incorrect.
There are studies 9several in fact) which displace this generalistic and unbased claim.
Here's one;
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/peggy-drexler/t...
As far as identifying a gay marriage with proper wording I think the most accurate would be "marriage" itself since it encompasses the fact you can have 2 same sex members get hitched.
I'm here to help friend....all you have to do is ask.
When it's two adults you say "between" adults. If there are three or more you say "among" or "amongst" adults.

Since you used "amongst adults" and not "between adults" you must mean polygamists.

Glad you're on board Dan! Who are you, Mormon Manny all of a sudden? What about all those "inherent harms" the "formatted" government has determined? The "cultish aspects" etc?

You're a real dope, Dan.

Having fun now!

Actually, yes you can. Straight people do it every day.

The key is the reasons you are denying those equal rights. Gay folks have already proven, categorically, that our marriages are good for our families, and good for society in general.

Gay folks want the SAME right to marry the adult single non-related person of their choice that straight folks ALREADY have. It's very simple.

And straight religious folks marrying many spouses at one time just doesn't enter into the marriage conversation for most Americans. Americans LOVE to marry multiples - just one at a time.

Do you demand that all of your straight friends, and every heterosexual married couple that you know, support marrying multiple spouses, simply because THEY can marry one at a time? Don't you think they would laugh at you for making such silly and illogical demands?

Of course you don't do that, do you, but you apply that leaky logic ONLY to gay folks.

Polygamy is a separate issue, with it's own arguments, detractors, and problems. If people wish to begin marrying many, then they will go through the appropriate channels, and prove that their marriages are good for their families, and for society, and the laws banning it will change.

If you support polygamy, then speak up. Demanding that other people who do not want to marry more than one spouse at a time support polygamy, simply because they want to marry just ONE person, is just plain silly.

But, I guess it really is all you have left, isn't it? You can't find a single logical or relevant reason to deny gay people the right to marry, so all you can do it to try to tie it to an unrelated divisive issue and hope for the best.

I'm waiting for Dan to start threatening to beat people up in the Home Depot parking lot again.

You know how he gets, he threatens to beat some tolerance and diversity into them!

He once threatened to beat me "into a greasy stain" because he felt I wasn't being tolerant and diverse enough. Meanwhile it's Dan who is the real bigot.

Why do folks like yourself and AK have such difficulty differentiating between ONE, and TWO, THREE or FOUR?

It hardly seems a mark of great intelligence, since most chdilren learn this in preschool, or even before.

Perhaps using counting sticks, or pennies would help.

One plus one + one = two. One + two (or three, or four) does not = two.

Does that make it a little more clear for you?

No it doesn't any more than allowing differing races to marry opened the door to allow Farmer Brown to marry his favorite milking cow Bessie you moron.
And if polygamists want to make the fight to legalize their particular aspect of marriage it's within their right but polygamy is a completely separate entity which stands on it's own merits.
No. Equal rights are equal rights. Your bigotry against polygamists is not a "separate entity".

The only double standard exists when heterosexuals want to ban homosexuals from marrying.
It's OK for heterosexuals to marry given it's a basic liberty all American adults should have but not homosexuals albeit they too are American citizens wishing to pursue a freedom which exhibits no harm.
You just got busted son.
Polygamists are "American citizens wishing to pursue a freedom which exhibits no harm" also.

You just got busted son.

Oh boy, now we're getting a smarmy arithmetic lesson! Priceless.

You think it's OK to eliminate the gender requirement in "one man one woman" but not the number requirement. Why? Please explain.

One man one woman. Why do folks like you have such trouble differentiating gender? Most children learn this in school bla bla bla.

Straight people discriminate against gays so it's alright for you to discriminate against polygamists. Is that what you are saying jackass?

What harm would a loving marriage of three consenting adult men cause you or anyone else? We won't wait for an answer since you have don't have one.

Just say NO, to Gover Norquist and his crazy ideas that come from the Middle East.

Republicans, Tea Party Nation members and GOP, break Grover Norquist's grip on you.

Definitely Bush's fault. It was almost Romney's fault, the popular vote was close. But Obama won so it's Bush's fault for 4 more years.

That's all the bigots really have to justify denying polygamy. "It's illegal".

Research the reasons it's illegal and then come back and justify them. We won't wait.

P.S. Same sex marriage is effectively illegal in most states. Will you accept that as a reason to deny it? We won't wait for an answer.

It looks as if the 75% of voters who approved of President Obama's economic approach in exit polls to help America and the middle class, working poor are getting a voice in Congress.

People like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Paul Ryan, Ron Paul, Tim Donnelly, Willard Mitt Romney, John BoneHead himer, Grover Norquist and other Republican, GOP and Tea Party Meat-Heads need to get their act straightened up.

The GOP and Republican outlaws are being hunted down as you read this message, they haven't a chance since they have already been tried and convicted of treason against the citizens of The United States of America.

All the while those pesky Tea Party members are running like cockroaches from the limelight of the world.
