Well hello Rose, I had a hunch we might meet again, come via? How's going?
Anyway, the problem with the "what harm does it do if we allow (_________ to marry", is that at some point, marriage becomes pointless. Two lesbians? Okay. Two gay men, okay. A man and a woman, okay, two brothers, okay. Two sisters, okay, one man and several women, okay. Etc.is any and all combinations acceptable as long as the adults are consenting? If inclusion is the objective, no reason to deny any combination.
Well, you're entitled to believe that.....but I don't think siblings are really into marrying each other......and your polygamy issue has been addressed many times by many people......polygamist don't need to wait until the right to marry is there for Same-Sex Couples.......they can start their fight at any time and I wish them all the luck.....but it isn't my fight and If they should be successful, their marriage still will have no affect on mine!!!

Oh wise and Wonderful Wizard of Waste Water what exactly is that expense you're referring to, and which families are nrgatively impacted by promoting, protecting, and/or preferring the biological nuclear family of mom, dad, and their bio kids?
Fallacy #1: Marriage does nothing to protect the biological family.

Fallacy #2: Giving Same-sex families equal protection and due process has no impact on opposite-sex families.

We all know that legal SSM has opened the door to some form of legalized polygamy down the road....its the pink elephant in the rainbow clubhouse. No matter how much you b!tech, moan, complain, or try to distance yourself from it polygamy is tied to the SSM movement. When the Brown family gives a TV interview supporting SSM, probably on more than one occasion, the least you can do is say, "thank you".
Did polygamy become legal when the New York legislature signed gay marriage into law? Why not?

So what?
Someone has to have a case before SCOTUS before you'll give them the same consideration and respect you give SSM?
They are committed to each other. Whatever commitment they have is their business just like any other marriage, bigot.
Do they commit to monogamy? [email protected]
Just like any other marriage? Mkay.... except there aren't any polygamous marriages in the USA.

They commit to each other. But it's really not your busybody business what they commit to just like it isn't in any other marriage.

Wasn't very long ago at all there were no same sex weddings in the USA.

Your bigotry and hypocrisy is showing.

It may or may not be used to further polygamy; I dont give a damn. It's irrelevant to OUR attainment of rights. SSM will not ensure polygamy due to other, more stringent, legal impediments.

When the brown family gives an interview, I laugh and change the channel. Nothing that redneck and his doormats have to say interests me.

You men, marriage will be pointless for you because you want to belong to a special club. If this is your point, then why are you advocating the two forms of "marriage" specifically denied by law?

Actually there are, they're just not legally recognized.

http://lovetimesthree.com/

Americans actually practice a form of polygamy. Its called serial monogamy. For example a man can have several ex wives with kids, and a current legal wife with kids. All seem to have a legal status as it relates to him. The question is, why does society allow that arrangement, but not allow coexisting simultaneously legal marriages? Granted polygamy makes legal issues complicated, not impossible however, yet oddly serial monogamy is okay, but polygamy. Where's the "morally acceptable" line drawn, and why?

Outstanding post paisan!

The one at a time rule is silly and archaic. It was enacted due to hate, ignorance and bigotry against Mormons. People against polygamy must be so proud to perpetuate the inequality.

We know that the hostility to poly from same sex supporters comes from their unfounded and rather ignorant fears that it will somehow jeopardize SSM. And also from their genuine bigotry.

I like to see 'em argue against equal rights though! FUN!

Great link by the way. How can anyone hate and deny rights to a family like that? Why would anyone want to? There is no harm. Live and let live.
