Naah. The more important question is why are you against some alternate forms of marriage while at the same time promoting your own alternate form of marriage?
Put more simply, why are you a hypocrite?
I'm trying to have an intelligent discussion of marriage equality, I wish you would participate instead of attempting to censor me.
This thread is about Prop 8. What does Prop 8 have to do with polygamy?

I am interested in discussing marriage. This is a discussion forum. It won't work if you treat it like a kindergarten playground and refuse to discuss the topic to hide your bigotry. Tell me why you are against polyamory, don't just whine.

So, before I was so juvenilely interrupted, I was asking you why are you a hypocrite?

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.
Put bluntly, if heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?
If you're going to respond "Polygamy is a red herring!! And you think a red herring is a fish!!" again, don't bother. you already tried that. it failed.
Why are you a hypocrite?
That lame-ass excuse again?...yawn... It was laughable the first time you posted it, now it's just boring.

Then start your own damn thread. This is about Prop 8. I can understand why you don't wish to discuss it.

So don't read it again, just don't attempt to censor it because you cannot intelligently respond without revealing your hypocrisy.

Why is that?

The defeat of Prop 8 is a victory for polygamy too.

Limiting the number of husbands a woman has seems to me just as much an infringement as limiting the gender of whom that woman can marry.

I wonder how many crooked politicans will be caught witht his new push to collect DNA samples.

DNA is the 21st century fingerprint, the database collection can be done in a way that protects privacy but also protects people from violent criminals.

Lets start with the current city council members of Glendora, California first.

Well, stupid, polygamy is a red herring. It's not the issue, the issue is gay marriage. Why not start a forum to talk about polygamy? Too dumb to know how to do that? That's my guess.
Three women are all deeply committed to each other. On what grounds do you dismiss their union as a "red herring" or "a straw man" rather than authentic love and self-expression?

On what grounds do you insist upon the traditional, arbitrary and exclusionary number of two?

I wouldn't want to. Doesn't mean I can't discuss it.

By your logic you cannot discuss space travel unless you're traveling in space.

how can you tell if i'm a hypocrite if i haven't printed or typed one single word about polygamy in this thread that pertains to same sex marriage?

when you start a thread about polygamy then we can discuss it.

until then, you know nothing of my opinion about that topic.

so, why are you here in this thread about same sex marriage trying to go off topic and discuss another topic?

original article linked at the top of this thread :

"Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage"

where, in the title of this thread, does it state 'polygamy'?
where, in the title of this thread, does it state 'marriage equality'?

talk about the court case regarding prop 8.

so, good people discussing the prop 8 law and the legal battles regarding this law, it's apparant that we have a willful poster here that wishes to divert the discussion from something we're all interested in (otherwise we wouldn't be here) to something they want to talk about.

the only (and best) recourse is to completely ignore the bloke and not to respond to any of his posts that aren't germain to prop 8 or the judge's findings regarding the law or the ensuing appeals - or even the sub-topic of same sex marriage since that is also included in the title of this thread.

maybe if they don't have anyone to play with, they'll give up and go home.

Stop trying to censor me. Tell me why polygamy doesn't belong in a discussion of marriage equality.

If we are discussing Mars, is it forbidden to mention Earth?

Your pleas for censorship are only because of your hypocrisy. Admit it.
