Is that "Wakanatabi" jackass (Dan) gonna obsessively count everyone's posts again today?

Probably not, "Rick in Kansas" is a dope.

You want proof? Answer the following honestly.
Is it "moral" for me to own a gun?
Is it a crime, a victimless crime, for me to own a gun?
Dirty Harry would disagree with you.

Is it moral to defend yourself with a gun or to turn the other cheek?

Depends upon your set of ethics doesn't it?

Owning a gun? Depends if it is against the law and on the type of weapon. Suppose it is? It is a victimless crime.

The government has no ability to dissolve a legal marriage without the consent of the spoouses. On the other hand, these people cannot add more spouses, either.

Pay up
I wasn't agreeing with your premise. I was pointing out that your use of "fraud" was incorrect, as it would be legal.

So you still lose the bet.

If it fits but keep in mind Einstein same sexed marriages and polygamy are inherently different and therefore would need separate considerations based on merit.

I guess you missed the fact that the purpose of the thread was to discuss the *story*, not merely the title that someone assigned to it.
Maybe you never made it past the title? Is that the problem?

If he had said "alternate form of marriage" in that speech would we be allowed to mention polygamy then
If he had said "I support polygamy", then polygamy would have been on-topic for this thread.

But he didn't. He said that he supports same-sex marriage. Both for male couples and for female couples.

Now, how are you coming with creating your own thread to discuss your pet topic? Oh, right, you're not doing that, because you're just here to be an Internet troll.

SSM has to be discussed in context.....in comparison to OSM, which has two primary structures, mono or binary, and poly or plural.
In the United States, the only structure of opposite-sex marriage that is given legal recognition is monogamy. Therefore, if we are comparing the legal recognition of same-sex marriage with the legal recognition of opposite-sex marriage, then we are discussing it within the context of monogamy.

Therefore, polygamy fails to be relevant.

Nope. He can come here with as many *women* as he likes, but he can choose only one to be listed as his *wife* on his visa. The United States does not recognize polygamy even when legal in some other country.

What does that have to do with "equality"? Equality between whom and whom?

Totally irrelevant to me or anyone else working for SSM. Until polygamists get off their multiple behinds, they aren't getting anything, and their first efforts will require them to get both polygamy and bigamy laws off the books.

Why?

Because we don't see Farmer Brown marrying his favorite milking cow as a legitimate marriage?

LOL!!!

Is monogamy a "legal structure"? The issue before the country is what is marriage. You are either unwilling or unable to acknowledge that not all states/courts/citizens view SS intimate relationships as marriage. As with SSM in various states, OSPM is practiced without legal recognition. Any change in legal definition of .marriage as a conjugal union of husband and wife, opens the discussion to include both SSM, and OSPM. Why should non conjugal, or non opposite sex binary marriage (SSM) trump, plural opposite sex conjugal marriage?

You lose the argument. Polygamy is not like allowing someone to vote more than once.

What a dummy!

Polygamy is marriage, the subject of this thread. Quit crying. You lost the argument.

Polygamy is not the same as voting more than once. That was a dumb attempt at analogy. Give it up, it's stupid.

I'll post whatever I want when I want. You don't like it? Tough sh!t.

What a crybaby!
