"straight people" aren't the ones claiming you can't, and then adding miles of footnotes to the "equal right's" claim to exclude all others but same sex and heterosexual.
What is funny is that you think you are somehow MORE for "equal right's" than another group because you want to include yourselves while excluding all others. Its cute really.
What you're attempting is a play on words.

There is no aspect of gays wanting "more" in terms of equal rights. In fact the term sums it up - equal rights.

As far as the rest of your thoughts here again is why you are incorrect;

Gays pursuing equal rights in terms of marriage have never made efforts towards excluding others. They are only focused on their path towards equality when it comes to marriage mainly because of the concentrated effort it will take to make it a national reality.

Disagree??

Then find just ONE case where gays took efforts to excluding say polygamists from marrying. Just one....because if you cannot you are what I already know of you - you're a liar.

So it is OK to exclude consenting adults from the right of marriage based on the number of parties involved, yet not OK when it comes to gender?
How many other exceptions would you like to include in your- I'm for equal right's of all- claim?
The poster merely pointed to the fact polygamy involved itself with a completely different set of circumstances in terms of marriage than the gay marriage issue in that polygamists are concerned with marriages involving themselves with 3 or more adults in a union.

And apparently that confused you.

Truth is I donít have an opinion on polygamous or incestuous marriage rights and I donít believe that I have to in order to deserve Gay Marriage Equality. Do you believe that polygamous or incestuous marriages should be legal?
Yes.

No, the poster said it was OK to exclude consenting adults from the right of marriage based on the number of parties involved, but not OK when it comes to gender.

When you post this: "cults which have tendacies to use techniques which amount to bondage, brain washing younger members and many include under aged brides." you are posting about cultists, which can, and do, exist in ay group. You haven't produced any answer about the harmful nature of polygamy, though. Just giving a history lesson...But your stupid ass fails to see the connection, because you don't wish to. The connection is governmentally legislated freedom of choice. But I accept your dodge as evidence that you cannot find any harm in any normal, non-cultist polygamists. It would seem that you are now using the same strategy that the anti-gay side has been using, and getting abused , for. namely, whitewashing a whole group, based upon some bad press generated by a few ill intentioned miscreants. Ciao, dumbass.
Here here! Brilliant post. Thank you for sharing.

Again, you are trying to act cute with your "gays don't make efforts to exclude" nonsense. The fact that you guys toss them to the side like bad fruit says it all. Any other form of marriage aside from same sex marriage is insignificant, a red herring, and off topic to you guys.

If you really want people to buy into your "equal right's" BS you really should stop attempting to exclude others through omission.

Funny, pointing out all the differences in forms of marriage are relevant to the argument against them, that is unless you are talking to the differences with homosexual marriages.

Careful, your inner-bigot is showing.

It's very clear to me, "friend" , that you only see what you want to see. You're a loudmouthed bullshitter. Punk yourself.
ROFL!!!!

Your first "story" is based on hearsay. Add to that it comes from an obviously extreme religious group in a blog of all places. No proof or mention of it anywhere else and you're willing to claim it's factual....LOL!!!!

--You might as well give me a blog which was written by the KKK in which one member claims to have seen a secret government report which outlined blacks were the result of women being raped by chimpanzees - in other words it's bullshit.

Your second article is about a MONK marrying a NUN which is outlined on how a 'brother' married a 'sister'. They are not related in other words moron....the term 'brother' and 'sister' in the religious context of monastaries and such are used to describe priests and nuns you IDIOT.

--You might as well lay claim someone watching NASCAR in the stands claimed cars actually were airplanes because he said "Man....that car really flew by".

LOL!!!!

And your third mention is of an actual brother and sister adopted by different families as infants who met later in life, fell in love, married and had children who only then found out they were related. A once in billion chance and event which I already mentioned in this thread. Hardly proof this happens more often than that.

--Might as well claim people who own 2 headed snakes, drive purple Ford make cars and live in Missouri commonly win Powerball lotteries whose earnings top 400 million or over because one man one.

Your "argument" and your "proof" is pathetic and still shows no harm in gay marriage.

Next.

While I am enjoying ripping you to shreds, I have work to do in the morning, and I could stay up half the night chewing you up and spitting you out. You can shut up, because I have already shown you to be biased and living in denial. Go call someone else "friend", and "punk", and "moron", someone who has not slam dunked you already, I have done enough work on you.
Really.

Because everything you've managed to throw at me couldn't cause so much as a tickle.

LOL!!!!

Good gawd loser. One thing your sad ass never took into account is that I too was against gay marriage until I examined it from every angle because like you I at one time wanted to fervently prove it was harmful. What happened was that I could find no viable harm in it. And in doing so determined we should not ban a segment of society a freedom such as marriage based solely on bias.

Myself I think your head is buried up your ass so deep the last time you saw sunlight was June 3rd, 1972 but there ya go dumbass.

Whose "you guys" first off.

LOL!!

You may find yourself waking up to voices in your head Sybil but not me.

And no one is tossing polygamists away like "bad fruit". Fact is no one gives a rats ass about polygamists when discussing gay marriage but you and your ilk since it's the only desparate way you can find at derailing arguments in favor of gays marrying.

You've been had friend. Give it a rest.

You believe that if a type of marriage is rare is should be illegal? Please explain the logic behind that dummy.

What a dope!
