The North-Side gang has been running things far too long as I'm told in Glendoera, California.

not allowed to call it a marriage?
these states and countries would tell you otherwise, bub :
Connecticut, Washington DC, Iowa, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hamshire, New York, Vermont, Washington. Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden.
and since when do you get to define marriage for anyone else other than yourself? if that's the case, then who defined your marriage for you? and why did you let them?
Those aforementioned states are part of a current trend that is disturbing. I don't get to define marriage, I merely accepted that the world I had grown up in had common sense driving it, not like today. Today's world has gone mad. And I am against letting the minority of nutcases re-define it. It makes no sense to allow them to call themselves married, when marriage has a meaning that transcends time. If historical tradition means so little, then what good is it, at all ? What good is the title of "married", at all ? It is for legit couples to claim, not just any pretender that wishes to get some sort of financial gain from the government. If they wish to call themselves married, tough luck. Next thing that results from this will be calling apples oranges, and all sorts of mayhem will result from using the wrong words. Misidentification will make for much confusion.

Not all blacks are evil of course, but many are dirty little fools! But you probably already knew I wasn't actually assuming it that far. You picked this on purpose! Getting even more ideas? Do you have kids? Probably not, yet you claim you have grand kids!

show us where in the court documents that polygamy was included or specifically named in any way shape or form in the law or the law suit.
"It refused to allow any marriage, except between man and woman. Thus excluding polygamy, as it did SSM. Any argument that defends SSM must also defend polygamy, for the exact same reasons, freedom of choice" That is where, through omission.

....and that's what's happening now with the law suits circulating through the system regarding DOMA and Prop 8.
so far, all the seated judges that have heard the cases have agreed - the days are numbered for both laws.
Those lawsuits are a frivolous waste of time and taxpayer money, and those judges have only one option, that is to declare that they have no jurisdiction in this matter, unless the Constitution is, again, to be rewritten without authority.

But you weren't implying that at first! You were before saying you weren't bothered to defend monogamy! Not very loyal to God are you?

1) You love evil!
2) Do you accept polygamy?
3) You've got no pride here!
4) You don't know shit about Britain, nice bluff!
5) But you fight against God himself!
6) You work hard driving both trucks and a mechanic? What a laugh!
1) No evil on my side, it was the Christians that burnt my kind, remember ? My side accepts your side.
2) I do not, but cannot rule it out, when discussing the redefinition of marriage laws.
3) My pride is alive and well, as I stated.
4) I don't eh ? I have spent much time in Great Britain, both as a civilian and in the military. My mother was from Walthamstow, and i spent much time there, and I have also lived in Ramsgate, and even done a stint as a despatch rider, operating out of Hendon, working for Hendon Central Cabs, look it up, right now, you will find it, right there in Hendon. Been all over the Isle of Thanet, and if you wish to quiz me on my "English 101", I will make you eat your hat, mate.
5) I do not fight God, He and I accept each other.
6) Mechanic ? May I ask where there came from, please ?
7) My dual nationality is still alive and well. Shall I place the picture of my British passport up, as an avatar, to disprove you ? Perhaps both my American passport, and my British one, in the same picture ?

So if Prop 8 is overturned, polygamy becomes legal? No, it doesn't. I wonder why.....

You are reaching now, but if you defend SSM, you must also defend polygamy, or is it an elitist attitude, one designed to make you feel superior to another discriminated class ? Because you defend one misunderstood group, yet shyte upon another. Your side claims to have been demonized, yet you ignore the fact that polygamists have also been demonized.

Why are you being so disrespectful to God? What if God exists? Fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdosm, and yet you show no fear of the possibility of him! You will always remain a foolish agnostic, switch to athiesm instead.

Of course common sense among people is rejected. And of course it would show a lack of commom decency and folly to do such! But you reject your own God, and the chance to speak and accept God, with your opportunity, where the truth can speak!
