I'll do that right after the drunkard provides proof of his statement that they do. But he won't because he can't. Just like he denies the raping of young girls by polygamists,to use your tactics,
evidently he supports those rapes.
Do you want me to post some more reports of gay men who have been arrested for molesting underage boys? What if I claimed that you supported those boy rapes? You seem to think that because you are gay, Blanch, that you can falsely accuse others and others are just supposed to shut up and take it? We all know how you get, you are like a spooked horse running from a burning stable when people do to you what you do to them. And you can't stop.

Tommy says "Frankie denies the raping of young girls". This is not cool at all. He is implying I rape young girls. It's the kind of stuff Poof! says I get deleted for posting. Of course I have never accused anyone of rape. But facts be damned! Poof! will probably delete me now because Tommy falsely accused me of child rape. It's a bit jarring for someone to imply you rape children. But hey! The rainbow card.

Have you noticed how identical Sheepie, Poop1 and Tom sound to KiMare, Seven Tee and other anti-gay homophobes? The only difference between them is their target. While KiMare et. al targets gays, Sheepie, Tom et. al target polygamists, but the lies, distortions and fallacies are identical.

Tom just loves to do to others what he hates being done to him. That is the arch absurd.

I see why you are so entertained in here.

Not the same things at all. We were never thrown in jail for trying to marry; we just were ignored. Polygamists go to jail if they seek more than one marriage license.

Nicely said Frankie, very nicely said. I don't think the SSM crowd understands that they are saying the same exact things that were said to them about gay marriage. They hated reading it, yet they don't mind repeating it to those who support polygamy and marriage freedom and liberty.

Bigamy is the same under the law whether the parties are all aware of each other or not, and is illegal because it involves the legal basis for marriage, which is primary kinship. You can't have multiple contracts for the same transaction.
Reverend Alan wrote:
<quoted text>
Bigamy involves deceiving the second spouse. Polygamists are fully aware that their husbands have existing wives. They enter into the marriage with full knowledge of what is going on.
Leave it to a racist like yourself comrade to distort and twist the facts.

I am a part of the gay community, and have yet to hear any of us espouse or even give a damn about polygamy. YOU aren't part of our community; you keep forgetting that.

Laws--good laws--aren't made on whims or notions; they take time to study the issues involved and find solutions to them. And unless you show either a constitutional mandate for such a change--which you don't have--or a swell of popularity among the population--which you don't have--then the law isn't going to change.
Reverend Alan wrote:
<quoted text>
I agree with Frankie that polygamy should be legalized with out any qualifications. If there are problems, they belong to the polygamists to solve. We do not need to worry our selves about it. It is enough that you came out and said polygamists deserve the same freedom to marry as everyone else enjoys.

Have these pedophiles taken the children as a spouse? You see the Polygamist forcibly marry underage girls, you will find it in every country where polygamy exists. In Canada, where polygamy was brought under court scrutiny in 2011, some 135 cases where shown, many involved children being sent across international borders ( USA) even with in Polygamist communities(in the USA) children as young a 13 have been forced into marriage with much older men. Granted by Law, they where not married, as multiple marriage licenses where not issued. None the less, that does not hinder the FLDS and Islamic churches from performing religious ceremonies. as an example Kody Brown and his 4 " sister wives".

What does seem evident is that you as well as Frankie seem to ignore the practice of forced underage marriage.

You certainly have an active fantasy life, Frankie.

Do you know what is said to happen of those who assume?

Back on the topic at hand, legal issues are seldom settled for all time by a single decision. New issues and arguments arise over time, as do our societies views about what is right for the world. In 1896, the court ruled that separate but equal, fulfilled the 14th Amendment's guarantee of equality. In 1954, they overturned that decision finding that separate was inherently not equal.

Legalizing polygamy won't legalize forced child marriage. In fact it will make it easier to prosecute that crime. Besides, most forced child marriages are monogamous, yet you don't want to ban monogamy. This is not logical Poof.
I have told you these facts many times.
