So, why not legalize three-way marriages? Or five-way? I'm sure there is a lobby out there for that. Lets just throw bigamy out the window along with the restrictions on biological relatives marrying and age requirements. If we are going to redefine marriage as what ever we want it to be then nothing should be off the table, right?

No.

You guys keep trying to shove this whole Slipper Slope thing down everyone's throat and it just doesn't work.

Homosexuality is a sexual orientation. The practice of homosexuality carries no inherent harm.

Any relationship such as sex or marriage involving a child is rape...and therefore harm.

Do you understand the difference? It is important.

Regarding plural marriage, that is not a sexual orientation. I don't really care either way on that topic but I seriously doubt the "lobby" for it will ever be potent enough to make it a reality.

And if it does, so what?

Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice. Nothing more, nothing less.
A plural marriage as you called it would by necessity involve some aspect of homosexuality and if we allow gay marriage, why not just extent the bounds a little further to multiple married partners? That's the logical progression. Gotta keep pushing the envelope until every deviant behavior is covered by the law.
How potent the lobby is shouldn't make a difference for those invested in redefining marriage.

Plural marriages already exist, man ... my mother has been married to four different men. My father has been married three times. I know lots of other who have had multiple spouses. Lots of them get married, become disenchanted with their partner for some reason, and they divorce within a few years. Then they do it all again.

And it is fully/totally "covered by the law."

Why shouldn't gay Americans be just as free to uphold the "sanctity" of marriage as my folks?

Love how you ignored my question completely and then come up with the same answer when you apparently can't answer my question a couple pages back.....Is that because you don't have an answer for it? Either way your whole premise is flawed you know it and so does everyone else. Believe whatever you want but don't try to enforce those beliefs onto another person just because you think it's icky!

Wow, due. Wow.

OK, cite your evidence for "Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice. Nothing more, nothing less". Because I guarantee you don't have any outside some fundie nutcase website. But go on, blow us away. Or is this just an opinion you like to throw around as if it was a fact?

Second, are you serious? Plural marriage has to involve some degree of homosexuality?? Plural marriages are almost exclusively like harems. One guy, several wives. The wives do their thing with the man separately. When one is occupied, he takes another. If they are utterly subservient they might do things with each other, I suppose. But there is another word for it: rape. Or sexual slavery. Maybe they like it, maybe not. But it ain't homosexuality.

Get your facts straight, bring you evidence, then we'll talk.

"Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice"- if God says don't do it then, one would think you can choose to NOT do it. That makes it a choice.

I suppose I should have better defined "three-way...five-way " marriages for those of you so challenged. I was making the point that if gay marriage was going to be sanctioned by the state then why not any marital arrangement? Why couldn't 3, 5 or 10 gay men or women get married? Why couldn't it be a mix of men and women? When you start redefining marriage, nothing would seem to be off the table.

I have no idea what your question is/was. Must have missed a page or two.
But, how can obeying God in abstaining from homosexual behavior be wrong? Apparently I'm not the only one who believes in this "flawed premise". There is little to no support for gay marriage in the black or Hispanic population...

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/black-pastors...

...and virtually no support in the south and many other regions.
Look at the number of states that have amended their Constitutions to ban gay marriage. Heck, California voted to do it TWICE! The support isn't there.
I asked a few questions that no one seems to be able to answer either. I also suggest you read the last sentence of your quoted reply above. This is all about the Supreme Court opening the door for the state (Federal) to force me to accept gay marriage as the law. If it is a harmless practice with widespread support, why hasn't it been legal for decades?
Simply speaking, its rooted in a lifestyle choice, not the color of someone's skin or even their nationality. It makes no more sense than legalizing stealing to make the kleptomaniac crowd happy.

I see the problem you are viewing this in a religious dogma way which prevents you from seeing this in a human rights way. You would be wrong about sexuality being a choice every respected medical association asserts that much. So what like I said before if everyone votes on it....does that make it right? That is what we have the court system for to prevent the majority from taking away the rights of the minority. To sum up what my last statement and question to you was:

Even if you believe that sexuality is a choice so what? You have a choice in what you believe, how you believe and where you believe. What is one day the majority of Americans decided you should no longer have that choice and decide by a vote to take it away from you. Are you stating that would be ok? Clearly the vote was taken and you no longer get to choose. Are you stating that should be ok?

My flight was being served by an obviously gay flight attendant, who
seemed to put everyone in a good mood as he served us food and drinks.


As the plane prepared to descend, he came swishing down the aisle and
told us that 'Captain Marvey has asked me to announce that he'll be
landing the big scary plane shortly, so lovely people, if you could just
put your trays up, that would be super.'


On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed this well-dressed and rather
Arabic-looking woman hadn't moved a muscle.


'Perhaps you didn't hear me over those big brute engines, but I asked
you to raise your trazy-poo, so the main man can pitty-pat us on the
ground.'


She calmly turned her head and said,'In my country, I am called a
Princess, and I take orders from no one.'

To which (I swear) the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat,
'Well, sweet-cheeks, in my country I'm called a Queen, so I outrank you.
Tray-up, Bitch!'

God has nothing to do with the conversation.

Do you honestly believe that gays literally *choose* to be gay? Think about that for a minute. Consider your own sexuality and ask yourself at what point you *chose* to be the way you are.

People do not choose their own nature.

Regarding plural marriage, no. This is an issue about equal rights among adults based on conditions they do not choose. Marrying multiple people is not in that category. It is *categorically* different.

I do agree that making a change to marriage laws will invite people to suggest other changes. I think that much is obvious. But refusing to make a necessary, correct change because you're afraid someone will suggesting something crazy is in itself crazy.

Fear is no reason to continue promoting bigotry.
