Yes, record highs again, breaking the record highs from last year. We also had the coldest night in 35 years. I was in gym shorts with the overhead fans going. Nice.

I am starting to hate them for it. I am glad there are normal gays in the world that do not do this.

Since all our resident Topix Gays are thrilled that that Colorado Baker was arrested and faces a year in prison for refusing to bake a god damned cake I though they might be thrilled if I suggested the idea of totalitarian force be used to force straight men to stop discriminating against gay men for sex partners.

How much longer can gays allow this travesty of injustice to continue? Straight men are discriminating against gay men around the world and they do so openly and we need a law to force them to include gay men as potential sex partners.

Also we need a law saying that every 20 years America must elect a black man for President.

Bravo. Beautiful!
Thanks, that one needs repeating because it so accurately describes the behaviour of so many of our simple minded. I know how right on it is by the number of negative judgits it got. The more negativity the more right on the post.

Thanks for the link, I just paid a visit.

Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran.

"A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man's four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl's sister."

The reason polygamy is illegal is moral disapproval, and that is not a valid reason. That's my argument.
Now X Breath will rebut my argument with "you didn't go to school..." or "You are a drug addict" or similar stupid non response.
Moral disapproval is only one argument. Is that all you have?

Xavier Breath: If you believe ANYTHING the Baptists say, you have bigger problems to worry about.

ALAN: I have never trusted any religious person.

Xavier Breath: Polygamy was already banned BEFORE Prop 8.

ALAN: I'll alert the media!

Xavier Breath: Marriage is not required for continuing society's existence.

ALAN: Why are you telling me this?

Xavier Breath: Denying marriage to gay couples does NOTHING to enhance traditional marriage.

ALAN: Why are you telling me this?

Xavier Breath:The law served no purpose other than to discriminate against gay couples.

ALAN: Why are you telling me this?

Xavier Breath: That why they LOST in court.

ALAN: I'll alert the media.

Xavier Breath:"Redefining marriage to include same-sex couples would jettison the rationale and logic behind prohibitions on polygamous marriages," Not true.

ALAN: Prove it.

Xavier Breath:There are plenty of reasons for keeping polygamy illegal that have NOTHING to do with SSM.

ALAN: And just what, exactly, are those reasons?

Is that your long answer for "No?"
We are still waiting for your reasons as to why polygamy should remain illegal.

And think about this: Alcohol was legal, and then it wasn't and now it is again. Polygamy was legal and now it isn't. But soon it will be.

In a Republic this kind of legal fickleness is prohibited and when you let Christians destroy that Republic and change it into a democracy where the majority rules, laws go back and forth. Are you convinced that gay marriage will never be illegal again?

There are still some backward counties in America where Alcohol is illegal unless you are the cops.

Someone who tries to argue that "one man one woman only" isn't relevant to polygamy obviously has ulterior motives.
I wish our resident Mob-o-philes would explain exactly what their ulterior motives are.

There is nothing "wrong" with a woman marrying a man who already has a wife. It is illegal but legal and illegal have nothing to do with right and wrong.

If Frankie has lied in here, please post the lie, otherwise you are attacking the messenger because you are unable and incapable of refuting his message.

What qualifies you to be an authority in this discussion? What are your degree's?

Why is a loving marriage of three consenting adults a bad idea? Suppose you and two other guys all felt you wanted to marry and form a family? Why do you want to limit your options? Why not leave the possibility open?
There was a case described in the Advocate of three gay men wishing to marry. It was touching. I am rooting for them, why aren't you? If you got to know a happy poly family you'd have to have a very cold heart to wish to deny them rights that you enjoy.
Marriage is good for society. Even marriages you for whatever selfish reasons don't approve of.
Nicely said Frankie, I feel your love. Our resident authoritarians will never understand nor feel the love you have for freedom, because they lay awake at night worried that the people in the next trailer might be doing something they do not approve of.

That you argue so vehemently that prop 8 didn't also ban polygamy tells us all we need to know about your motives.
I really don't see the point otherwise.
Prop 8 says, "one man one woman" so clearly that means one man, two woman is illegal as is two men or two women.

Our resident authoritarians might as well argue that 1+1 doesn't equal 2.

Perhaps they have no motives and just like Christians are told by their mommies that there is a God, perhaps the mommies of authoritarians told them polygamy is wrong and now they will insist on it for the rest of their lives because no new information will get in to show them how wrong their mommy was about this.
