That train left the station in 1967. Do you also support a return of miscegenation laws?

But you are making exactly the same arguments the racists made in the sixties. And your arguments will lose again.

So you're trying to get interracial marriages made illegal now too? I guess you're at least being consistent.

And if you are really determined to push that agenda good luck with it. Just as legal recognitions of interracial marriages didn't automatically make same-sex marriages legal, making same-sex marriages legal doesn't mean that polygamous marriages will also become legal without a lot of additional effort.

Personally, what consenting unrelated adults choose to do in their own relationships doesn't affect me and my marriage one bit.

If you want polygamy so bad, get off your couch, go down to your county court house, if you can possibly find two women (or men)that would go down with you, apply for a license then, when they refuse, sue them. Let's the courts work it out.
Don't be lazy, work for your rights!

If you don't oppose interracial marriage because the arguments also favor polygamy, then why do you feel okay about treating gays differently?

That was a rhetorical question. We all know that answer already.

BFD. Polygamy will stand or fall on its own merits.

I don't feel polygamy got its legal boosts from interracial marriage in the courts...it got it from ssm in the courts...

Don't you think ssm treats gays differently??? We don't even discuss that two heterosexual men/women can marry under ssm laws too....

But those who argued against interracial marriage because of the same slippery slope you now fear would have disagreed with you. Why is the slippery slope more dangerous now?

As I said before, you don't need to answer. We already know why.

No. How do marriage laws treat gays differently than straights? Name even one distinction in the laws in the ten states that have marriage equality.
We don't even discuss that two heterosexual men/women can marry under ssm laws too....
Just as a gay man can marry a heterosexual woman or a lesbian. And a lesbian can marry a straight man. Why would they want to?

What is your point? That you have nothing worth saying?

How would allowing Gays and Lesbians to marry someone of the same gender treat them differently than 2 straight men marrying or 2 straight women marrying each other?

Like Jeff stated......you all seem to be okay with a Gay man marrying a Straight woman or Lesbian, right?

You aren't actually suggesting that people argued against interracial marriage for fear of approving of ssm, polygamy and incest marriages??? Are you??? Even 'that' goes to far for liberal lies....
No. How do marriage laws treat gays differently than straights?
Traditional marriage does not exclude any sexuality....
Name even one distinction in the laws in the ten states that have marriage equality.
No husband and wife on the books...that is a distinction...

You would have to ask them that...but the same question can be applied to why marry just one woman or man???

The point being that interracial marriage has NOTHING, NADA, ZIP to do with the push for polygamy since ssm has entered the courts...

Race is not 'sexuality'...Race is an inherant trait carried by our genes...

Sexuality is nothing of the sort..if anything...it's getting closer to being proven that homosexuality is a malfunction in the womb, which if they do discover that, can fix it...

Just like it's NOT called "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" Marriage......it's just called "MARRIAGE" regardless of who marries who!!!!

The media referred to it as "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" Marriage, but in reality....NO "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" marriage licenses have EVER been issued!!!

When my wife and I got married......they did not HAND us a SPECIAL license application just for "GAY" or "LESBIAN" couples......every California couple that got married when we did.....ALL got issued the same type of Marriage License!!!

That's EXACTLY what happened when they were legalizing interracial marriages. The whole "slippery slope" argument, complete with fears of polygamy and incest, were used during the Loving case to try and stop interracial marriages.

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/... gives direct examples.

Fool, why do you bother with your lies when they are so easy to refute?

You all are such liars...the only groups to come forward after Loving were gays, and they were struck down at the knees...
