Look, dummy. Prop 8 does NOT strike down the "a" thing. It was in effect BEFORE Prop 8 and it will continue to be in effect AFTER Prop 8. The "a" thing was NOT struck down.
You have to do a little thinking here dummy, but it will be worth it. If Prop 8 stood as law of the land it will be even harder to make poly legal. The federal law would be gone but prop 8 would still be saying "a man and a woman!"

Not only will polyamorists have to strike down the federal law, but Prop 8 as well. But that won't happen, you're doing a fine job of getting rid of it for them! Even if that is not your intention, I'm sure they appreciate it. By the way most polyamorists support same sex marriage, why do you alienate them? Let me answer. Because you're an ignorant hypocrite!

Do you understand now, Miss Thing?

Marriage. There is no one right way.

Oh, I understand that you THINK you know what you're talking about, but you don't. Prop 8 did not affect polygamy in any way. It was already illegal. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? PROP 8 DIDN'T MAKE POLYGAMY DOUBLE ILLEGAL.

I don't give a flying fuck what polygamists support. It is a total non-issue, except in your damaged brain.... you're like a stuck vinyl record... time to make the move to mp3.

Some homosexual activists also see the link between same-sex marriage and polygamy. Justin Michael, founder of the group "Polyamorous NYC," says that efforts by homosexual activists to deny the link with polyamory is false and cowardly.

"I'd encourage people to keep an open mind," he asserted, "it wasn't too long ago that gay relationships were completely ostracized. All movements have a tendency to build on the movements that have come before them."

He added: "It's hypocritical for us as gays and lesbians to pretend we're the only people who are treated differently because our relationships are not mainstream. Both communities are concerned with love, and forming lasting relationships, and with our own liberation."

FBI agents caught sexting and dating drug dealers
Dating drug dealers, harassing ex-boyfriends with naked pictures, and pointing guns at pet dogs: these were just a few of the offences committed recently by serving FBI agents, according to internal documents.

This is the type of line of thinking that happens when someone finally gives up. They KNOW there is no rational argument against same sex marriage, and admit it, but they just can't stop posting.
It's sad, really. But kind of funny, too. They are proposing that the government interfere with marriage choices to an unprecedented and unsustainable level.
They are demanding "diversity" inside of each marriage, so they must also require different religions and races to be present inside each marriage. It's not just gender that receives government protection against segregation and discrimination.
Can you imagine the tax dollars and levels of governmental interference in personal lives required to implement their ideas?
Religious and racial differences are small and unimportant while gender differences are great and mean the continuation of the human race. If Quest wants to stand for gender segregated marriage, that's her problem.

Same sex marriage means more wasteful government spending on entitlements for a new class of same sex dependent beneficiaries and the higher taxes to pay for that and litigation.

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

If heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?
