No. Goats cannot enter into contracts. And the marry your goat argument is stupid. You can have sex with your goat only if he likes it!
Otherwise I'm telling on you. It's illegal. But probably not in Modesto! So you've got a loophole.
I am just saying... before you get there I wanted you to know up front.

and please do not post any pictures of the wedding or worse

Yes. I am here to discuss the topic, marriage equality. Which of course includes the slippery slope and marriage in all it's many forms.Not just forms you approve of.
You are here to troll me, because I hurt your feelings and you are too dumb to respond intelligently.
I am here to discuss the topic too, as religious influence in the US declines justice and equality are coming forward, repressed for generations.

As one of the largest hate groups in the world loses influence many wrongs are being set right.

Or you can read the comic book
Please answer the question, why shouldn't "marriage equality", extend to other forms of marriage, primarily plural marriage.

Take your case to the courts with the backing needed, make your arguments, and I will weigh in on it.

For right now, I could simply care less, the issue before the courts has nothing to do with this, and will have a sum zero impact on it.

Why are you afraid to even offer an opinion. Why shouldn't "marriage equality" include plural marriage?

Your marry your goat argument is typical of homophobes like yourself.

It's stupid and no reason to deny marriage equality for committed consenting adult humans.

Try again.

My opinion is that I could care less

it is currently a dying concept, declining with the decline of religious fundamentalism, and the actions of far too many adherents of it.

You could not get enough signatures to put that on a ballot.

You want to make it a big deal here, cause you will just talk about it a lot, but it is meaningless. The case currently before the courts have no bearing whatsoever on it.

I not opposed to the general concept of it, but the way it has been used lately by far too of the adherents of it is despicable and often criminal.

Once those stains ( welfare fraud and child abuse ) are far enough removed, and more civilized advocates of it come forward, then progress on this might be made. I am guessing at least a couple of decades.

Then it will be a subject of interest

You tell him Janey-Doody!

This "Big D" jackass goes on and on about religion like some quacked out fundie on hillbilly crack!

He thinks religion should be injected into marriage rights, and into people's lives who don't want to hear it.

What a jackass eh, Janey?

"I could care less" Yes you could and should care less. You care too much what other people do that doesn't harm you. I wish you would care less! And everyone else against equal rights should care less.

You care so much you wrote a 200 word essay complete with hate, ignorance and bigotry against people you know nothing about except for sensationalized media crap.

Once the stain of Jeffrey Dahmer is far enough removed maybe more people will support gay rights.

again I am not opposed to the concept, I f you are going to spread that much hatred and contempt against people that are not opposed to it you have zero chance, zipů nada of ever getting anywhere with it, not now or ever.

It is the actions of other people have rendered it moot in the near future.

so I could really care less at this point as there will be no movement on this for a decade or two

It would be VERY interesting to see them asking for signatures at the Mall. "Please sign my petition to legalize polygamy!" Very interesting indeed.

I "could care less" means exactly the opposite of what you intended you big dope! What you mean is "I couldn't care less".

Advocating equality is spreading hate and contempt? You're way out there dude! Maybe it's all that religion.

I don't think so. I remember back when people would say that about same sex advocates though.

I'd sign a petition at the mall for equal rights. Wouldn't you?

Same sex marriage causes harm with a new standard of gender segregation where before, California's marriage law was always integrated, allowing marriage of one man and one woman, for gender diversity.
If you love integration and diversity; keep marriage male female, like it was for mom and dad.
Define that harm and show proof of its existence.
