You're immoral and unethical, in this regard basically a thief. Let's see if your kind says a word about it.

Like I said. We shouldn't use religion at all. It would violate the first amendment.

You should stop trying to use religion to deny rights. That also violates the first amendment.

Ask for help. Sound it out.

When I visited Ellis Island I was struck by one of the questions on the admittance form for citizenship. Right next to a question asking if a prospective immigrant was an anarchist was also “Are you a polygamist?”

It seems that polygamy was a way to keep out the non-Christian and many times non-white people, and to culturally exclude them.

Jizzy is like that.

Like I said probably 4 or 5 times by now. None. You are the one wishing to violate the first amendment, not I.

Next time you get the urge to ask what religion we should use, please try to remember the first amendment. Please. it's ridiculous you ask that dumb question over and over when I have already answered it.

Please try and get it through your thick head I am not asking to change a law based on religion.
But you are trying to justify the law against polygamy based on religion.
You love to cite the First Amendment read it. You are attempting to violate it by basing a law on religion.
You would deny a whole group rights because some of them are of a religion you hate.
How does it feel to argue against equality you bigot?
Look all the groups that YOU have listed that wish Polygamy, do so based on their religious beliefes. So you are saying that the laws reguarding polygamy be changed to suit religion. WE as a Nation do not make laws based on religion. What is so hard to understand?
If we change laws based on religion which religion shall we base them on?

The First Amendment says that we will not have a national religion. You as a citizen are free to worship as you see fit. You may follow your religious laws as you see fit. But religious laws do not trump civil laws.
Example. Your religion says that you must pray twice a day. Great do so. Now try and make a civil law that requires me to pray twice a day.

Your religion says polygamy is accepted. Our civil laws sa no, guess what. The correct answer is NO.

Now post a link to the 500,000 people who wish polygamy, that are not based on religious beliefes.

Don't you understand that IF we allow that one simple change in the structure of our base of law making, we will open the door to many many more changes based on religion.

A standard will have been set, what will stop other religions from demanding equal treatment of their beliefs?

Repeal of Roe V Wade
Slavery
Womens rights
Dietary laws
Sodomy laws
Adultery laws
The list can and will grow.

SSM and polygamy both have nothing to do with religion. You and D are only here to push your atheist religion of nothing. How can SSM be about equal rights but other minority groups are left to fend for themselves?

I am cracking up at his comments, did he say we should not use religion to deny rights to others?

Who funded Prop 8 again?
