Don't lie, you know damn well what I am talking about, your hypocrisy in supporting same sex marriage but not supporting poly marriage or incest marriage.
I said you seemed angry; that is not an insult. I never said I didn't support incest or poly marriage.

The concept is stupid and unprovable.... just like you: meaningless.
Rebuttal? helloooooooooooooo.... you didn't prove anything. What is there to rebut? You made a meaningless statement. The burden of proof is yours. YOU said it, YOU prove it. Oh wait... you can't... that's why you just keep repeating it. Insisting that "everything=nothing" is silly and unsupportable.
You really don't understand the simple concept that if marriage means everything, it means nothing? You should be embarrassed, not proud.

If marriage means everything, everyone will be married. It won't mean anything. Very simple concept.

I'd like to find the place where it is fair and equal to everyone. I think it includes same sex poly and incest marriage. You obviously do not. No reason to get angry. I am simply more tolerant than you.

Why would they want to marry someone they're not attracted to? Why can't they marry the one they ARE attracted to. At least they can in some states.
Why not call it something else? Is this a self esteem issue?

Yeah, that seems to be universal here, I mention poly, everyone gets very angry but they won't admit they are against it.

They, like you, just say "I didn't say I was against it." Yeah, well you didn't say you were for it did you?

No, they want marriage. Same as what you have. Simple.
Same as what I have? A marriage of husband and wife of 20 plus years and our biological children ?Excellent! Then marry like I did. Find yourself someone of the opposite sex to be your lawfully wedded respective husband or wife. Its not hard to figure out. Tell ya what we'll even let male lesbians marry women. Nothing says both lesbians in a lesbian marriage have to be female.

I support marriage between two individuals, whether they be man and woman, two women or two men. I don't have to support polygamy in order to support marriage between two people. I neither support nor abhor polygamy; I am indifferent on the issue.

No dear, I mean the same right that you have to pursue marriage with an unrelated, consenting adult. Bye.

Not hard to figure out there Doo Doo. Either marriage is understood to mean a legally, culturally, historically, and/or rekiguous union of husband and wife orientated around the procreative aspect of that union for the stability and greater good of their children, and thus society as a WHOLE, or it means what ever any combination of adults mean it to be. Thus it loses its fundamental meaning. Why do SSMers get to redefine marriage for a few, but no one else gets to redefine it to fit their view of marriage?

Jane (it's hard remembering he is a man with a name like Jane!) Dodo knows what it means, it's just his usual diversionary tactic he uses whenever he's at a loss for an effective rebuttal, which is always.

Which denies that right to a related consenting adult. Why?

Yeah, you are "indifferent". Translation- you don't want it legalized but don't want to say that since it would reveal your hypocrisy.

If you were truly indifferent you wouldn't have responded.

You seem fixated on the number two.....yet....Out of 1170 societies recorded in Murdock’s Ethnographic Atlas, polygyny (the practice of men having more than one wife) is prevalent in 850. Even our own culture, which has an astoundingly high divorce and remarriage rate, practices a form of serial polygamy.
