They joined the parade because getting equal rights for gays is one step closer to getting equal rights for polygamy...

What's wrong with that?
.
It says right there in the Bible Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. 1000 women all married to each other is the biggest gay marriage in the Bible
.
Solomon would need 25 Greyhound buses just to take his 1000 wives shopping at Victoria's Secret

hee hee. It's funny how the "protect marriage" crowd (and I use that term very loosely) just totally ignore the true biblical versions of marriage: one man, many women.

The Moron Churchcult, imo, merely continues to try and undo all the bad public relations the latest decade of its long history of bigotry, specifically its funding of NOM.

This has little to do with a genuine understanding of or support for genuine glbt equality.

call me cynical - but I dont trust them.....I wouldn't put it past the Mormons to "pretend all is well" so it gives them - nationally - a softer feel before the election..I hate to feel this way, but I thinks its ALL part of thier plan. No doubt the Higher ups in the Mormon Cult are Licking thier Chops at the very thought as Mitt Romney being president....and this is JUST A PLOY...to make them come off less, weird, more tolerant etc etc

the Mormons are a Sneaky bunch......I honestly wouldn't put it past them to "make it look as tho, they're being more tolerant, kind,and excepting".....as long as it affects thier bottom line...Romney as President! I watched BIG LOVE, they don't do something for Nothing.....there's always an angle. Don't think for a moment, that these are volunteers....the "Pretend Volunteers"...sorry, after all they've done to thwart LGBT Equality nationwide.....I don't trust them one iota.

Really numbnutts? Please do chart out the cause and effect of one leading to the other.

Perhaps you could demonstrate using Iceland, Spain, Argentina, Portugal, South Africa, the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Sweden or Noway. Marriage equality has existed in some of these countries for over a decade now. Please demonstrate where polygamy has resulted in one of these countries.

Waiting....

Waiting....

Waiting....

I love it when you dumb assclowns just repeat the same meaningless rhetoric over and over. It domonstrates that the majority of you are idiots, and it demonstrates how fully incapable you are of establishing a valid reason to deny gays marriage equality.

You reek of desperation.

You're correct. The bible is CHOCK full of polygamy and our cranky friends scream that they follow EVERY word of the holy book, yet are only married to one partner. I guess they aren't good Christians!

I'm sorry that I have to agree with you there.

Their organization BLATANTLY has the goal of a theonomy under the control of their hierarchy.

Have you read that the NSA's new internet monitoring center is in the last stages of construction in Utah?
