As if YOUR hairbrained theories would hold up in Court. You can't even provide any evidence to back them up.
As in same sex marriage it's not my job to provide evidence that polygamy will not hurt you, it is up to you to prove evidence that it will.

So far you haven't done that beyond the absurd and incredible. You think everyone will rush out and get poly married and society will fall apart. You are an idiot.

But the real reason for your frustration is anger at yourself for being a hypocrite.

Someone considered your statement "brilliant". "Polygamy is illegal because the government passed laws making it illegal". Priceless. Just priceless.

That's why I like you silly jackasses.

Yes. So did California against same sex marriage. It didn't hold up in court. Your bigotry won't either.
I have nothing against polygamists. If anyone is stupid enough to want to marry more than one person at a time, they can go for it.

Of course the courts are unlikely to agree and will keep polygamy illegal.

Actually there IS proof polygamy is harmful; that's how they convicted Warren Jeffs of child sexual assault in spite of his claim of religious freedom.

That's why polygamy will remain illegal.

There are perfectly good laws against all the crimes Jeffs committed and there are perfectly good laws against all the crimes you ignorantly associate with polygamy. Prosecute the criminal, not the criminal's marriage.

If someone in a same sex marriage commits a crime should we make same sex marriage illegal?

The question I posed is why is polygamy illegal?. The answer you gave is "because the government made it illegal". And then you call me a moron. That's why I like you silly jackasses!

OK, thanks to you we now know that polygamy is illegal because the government made it illegal. So now I ask you this- why did the government make it illegal? See where we are going with this? Please catch up.

Gee thanks. You are so generous. And so am I. I believe anyone who is stupid enough to marry someone of the same sex can 'go for it" too. Thank me! Be nice.

OK kiddies, let's review the remarks from the peanut gallery. Little Neil An Blowme says polygamy is illegal because Frankie is stupid. And little We the Sheeple says polygamy is illegal because it was made illegal.

Anyone else have reasons to prevent other people's marriages? Please add your input.

Polygamy IS the crime, because it involves minors unable to give legal consent & forced marriages.

It is CURRENTLY illegal to marry someone of the same sex in 37 states, whether they've committed a crime or not.

If that's the question you wanted answered, then why didn't you ask that in the first place?

The govt made polygamy illegal because the majority of legislators at the time felt it was harmful to society.

They were right.

It's not our fault you don't like the answers to the questions you pose.

Maybe if you asked the right question you'd get the answer you're looking for.

If a same sex marriage involves minors it is a crime too.

If someone in a same sex marriage commits a crime, should we ban same sex marriage? Prosecute the criminal, not the type marriage he is in.

Of course I am not advocating children marrying you moron.

Polygamy is currently a felony with prison time in ALL states. And you are defending that hypocrisy.

Because it is about equality, idiot.
Men and women are both people, and accordingly are entitled to equal protection of the law.
A marriage between two people is equal whether they are opposite sex or same sex. A marriage between three or more people seeks greater, not equal protection of the law. Were you not a complete dullard, you would comprehend that you are making an utterly inept argument.
LOL

Having a hard time with this, aren't you?

Gender discrimination is wrong, but number discrimination is okay?

On what basis?

Moreover, many legal experts make the same argument, including members of the Supreme Court.

Smirk.

And you are enjoying the fact that others are denied that right just like you used to be. Nice!

It seems there is a little fly in his marriage equality ointment.

He's against allowing other people's marriages but he's not a bigot mind you. We are.

YUK!YUK!YUK! Ah good times.
