"Yes, polygamy hurts people because they go to jail for it." Priceless! But how does it hurt you miss thing?
"Yes... I argue against equal rights..." Yes you do, bigot. And you do it very poorly.
And that old Mona gem: "Polygamy is illegal because it's against the law." That's my favorite!
SO Funny!
Post more!
You can laugh all the way to jail.

If you're so gung-ho to marry more than one person, what's stopping you?

I'm not. It's just that I support equal rights for everyone including homosexuals and poly.

And of course, bigots like you made polygamy illegal. So you cannot do it. Similar to same sex marriage in most states. You won't go to jail for SSM like you will for poly, but you still cannot do it.

It's very telling that you hate the fact that ssm is not allowed, but you cheer the fact that poly is not allowed. It suggests that you are a hypocrite.

No, we are asking about a case where an established sight to marry was stripped from a minority group based only on animus.
Although, right now the Court is asking primarily about standing on Prop 8.
We shall see.
Standing? Are you even following the case?

Rare exceptions? Indeed.
Oh, BTW, same sex couples can employ some of the same methods for procreation that sterile heterosexual couples resort to.
To quote Mike DiRucci...
Dopey!
Nothing you said addressed the facts I stated.

They certainly did not disqualify my facts;

1. Heterosexual couples who do not procreate are still a large minority.

You simply argue that heterosexual couples are delaying or may not at this time choose to have children (those 'decisions' change all the time). Minor fluctuations in rates does not change my facts.

2. Gay couples are 'absolutely desolate' by mutual procreation.

You blatantly attempt to make the same idiotic, deceitful comparison.

-The unnatural barrenness of heterosexual couples to the absolute mutual desolation of every single gay couple.

-Even worse, your 'solution' leaves the child always absent one parent and one gender! A horrible and cruel deprivation of a child's well-being. Something that is diabolical and should be criminal. Anyone deliberately perpetrating this on a child is despicable.

This is a example of what evil consequences the attempt to equate duplicate couples to marriage leads to...

Your denial is sick and dangerous!

If funny that the same people who claim they are for small government want the government telling us which sex positions we can use. And they think putting men in jail is a good way to get then to stop engaging is sodomy.

Marriage is a cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. SS couples are a direct contradiction. A violation of nature. You could be blind as a bat and dumb as a rock and still know they are not the same. Even a child says, "Are you serious???"
Smirk.
Stupid, marriage is a legal contract. And you don't have to be able to reproduce in order to enter that contract.

Do you think you should have been aborted? You describe yourself as a mutated monster, or something similar.

You are silly stupid. The ability to reproduce is just not a requirement for marriage.

If you want to put a chink in the armor of "Procreation is irrelevant in marriage" tell em you support incest marriage. Listen to the stuttering and double talk! Fun!

I do. I support all forms of marriage among consenting adults. I find some of the biggest bigots against less common forms of marriage are same sex marriage advocates. Funny that. You'd think maybe they are hypocrites.

There you go again, with that fantasy stuff. He didn't say that. He said marriage had a clear purpose, other than sexual gratification. Can't you post without adulterating context ? And you are not in any position to hand anything over, you have no power to control it. The Constitution was written very clearly, and no mention was made of SSm.
But stupid, it can't mention every law in the Constitution. So, it says we should have equal protection under THE law. That includes marriage laws. That's why the 14th Amendment was sited in Loving v VA. The Constitution doesn't mention inter-racial marriage either.

Your side is using legal loopholes to turn our society upiside down, and if we didn't have special interest groups involving themselves in politics, we'd not be facing this issue now. Fact of the matter is, common sense has been replaced with libertine values, and we are witnessing the demise of sensibility and order. Our politicians have decided that the very nature of our country is to be violated.
Gay marriage will violate the very nature of our country!?

The problem is you don't comprehend the definition of "Equal Protection"- you seem to think that is synonymous with equal outcome.
BTW< how about you come off the playground for a minute and stop ending your sentences with- grow a pair, and LOLSER- thay hardly add any meaning to your already meaningless rants.
LOLSER. Look who's talking! All you do is attack me, and don't even try to counter what I've said. So, b!tch, STFU.
