Bill, what don't you understand about prop 8? It forbids polygamy as surely as it forbids same sex marriage.

It says in California, "marriage is a man and a woman". Does it say "men and women" Old SniffButts Billy? Think hard. Sound it out. Ask for help. Remember! There are no dumb posts. Only dopes like you.

That is the topic. Show me where it says anything about polygamy.
You can not miss it, look at the top of the page.
Supreme Court did not rule Tuesday on Proposition 8, the 2008 California initiative that banned same-sex marriage in the state, but signaled that the decision will come Wednesday.
The justices also did not issue their decision on the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which bars gay and lesbian married couples from receiving the same federal benefits as opposite-sex spouses. They indicated, however, that the decision in that case also will come Wednesday, saying all remaining opinions from the court's annual term would be issued then.

Proposition 8 was a ballot initiative, and a California state constitutional amendment, passed in the November 2008 elections, which says that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." The proposition overturned the California Supreme Court's ruling — from the same year — that same-sex couples "have a constitutional right to marry." However, Prop 8 didn't affect the state's domestic partnerships or same sex marriages performed before November 5, 2008. Nonetheless, the passage of Prop 8 — the same day the first African American president was elected — unleashed protests, demonstrations and numerous lawsuits challenging the proposition's validity. United States District Court Judge Vaughn Walker, who is openly gay, overturned Proposition 8 on August 4, 2010 in the case Perry v. Schwarzenegger, ruling that it violated both the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the United States Constitution. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals continued the stay, keeping Walker's ruling "on hold pending appeal." On February 7, 2012, in a 2–1 decision, a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel affirmed Walker's decision declaring the Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional.

Silly idea. Makes as much sense as saying Prop 8 prohibits people from marrying palm trees. Try again.

If the other law against polygamy was repealed but prop 8 was not, would polygamy be legal in CA Jizzy?

No? Why not? because prop 8 bans it! Amazing huh? Always ask for help.

No, Prop 8 does not say anything about palm trees. But it does say marriage is A man and A woman, which prohibits SSM and Polygamy equally.

Glad it upsets you, but that's marriage equality, it's even for people you don't like. That's what equality means!

Relax, what harm would a loving marriage of three men cause you? Don't like poly marriage? Don't marry more than one person. Easy!

If legalized, polygamy will still be so rare you'll probably never have to be offended by the sight of a happy poly family.

laws as written in the OT???? Is your salvation based on your works and the OT or By the Grace of God and the NT???
One can only ask do you eat pork, shrimp?
Tell me are you allowed to marry a Gentile?
No Riccardo, your salvation does not come from the OT (Torah) but through the Blood of the Christ. See ya sport
Jesus did not come to this earth for the purpose of acting as an opponent of the law. His goal was not to prevent its fulfillment. Rather, He revered it, loved it, obeyed it, and brought it to fruition. He fulfilled the law’s prophetic utterances regarding Himself (Luke 24:44). Christ fulfilled the demands of the Mosaic law, which called for perfect obedience under threat of a “curse”(see Galatians 3:10, 13). In this sense, the law’s divine design will ever have an abiding effect. It will always accomplish the purpose for which it was given.

Come one dudes, make it credible.

You two morons are wrong. Prop 8 prohibits polygamy too. Lie with it. Admit your ignorance and move on.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage.

Prop 8 also bans polygamy. It's over turning is a victory for polygamy too. Equally.

If you don't like it, that's irrelevant. But don't tell me prop 8 doesn't ban polygamy.

I was hardly speaking of you.
It is clear you deserve your condition.
It is clear that homosexuality is a evolutionary mating behavior defect.
It is clear that scientists are stuck unable to find a legitimate purpose for homosexuality.
It is clear that they expect to confirm a epi-marker mistake as the cause.
It is clear that once a cause is determined, most homosexuals will seek a cure, or prevention at the least.
It is clear you keep dumbing down on a lie because you have nothing else.
You were hardly speaking of me?!? I'm sorry, did I misunderstand when you asked what I would lose or what I would gain if "cured" of homosexuality? You were absolutely talking about me when you discussed a "cure".--FACT #1

Homosexuality is not a "condition".--FACT #2

No legitimate scientist in any field has ever suggested that homosexuality is an evolutionary mating behavior defect.--FACT #3

There are plenty of theories as to why homosexuals exist. That there hasn't been a universal consensus among scientists DOES NOT mean that one does not exist. Likewise, there are many theories as to what causes gravity. No one has been able to reproduce gravity in a laboratory. It can be mimicked through centripetal force devices. However, we observe gravity on a daily basis. To not understand an issue in its entirety DOES NOT mean that it should not exist.--FACT #4

NO ONE other than YOU has referred to the "epi-genetic THEORY" that may explain homosexuality as a "MISTAKE". If the "epi-genetic theory" is ever proven to be linked to homosexuality, IT DOES NOT imply that homosexuality is a mistake. In fact it would be MORE evidence that homosexuality is a NATURALLY OCCURRING phenomenon.--FACT #5

There is NO evidence that once a cause is established for homosexuality that "most" will seek a cure.--FACT #6

Once again your lies have been decimated.

You continue to show your hand. Everyone who is following this exchange has NO DOUBT as to your motives.

In your ideal world, homosexuals would not exist. You are an eugenicist sh!t stain who believes that a huge segment of the population needs to be "cured". You are an embarrassment to the human race.

But I've got news for you, Blanche... This isn't YOUR world. It's God's world. It's the Creator's world. And God, the Creator, WANTED gay people to be here.

The way I see it you have two choices. You can get on board with the rest of modern society. Or you can be miserable as the world goes on around you. It's your choice.

You already made your choice clear. I was trying to get you into a normal gay's shoes.

In your case, it is a condition.

Mating behavior has one goal. Homosexuality fails.

'Normally' the epi-marker is erased. Abnormally, as in your case, it is not.

Normal gays would choose a cure.

But hey, this all started with your delight with a depraved parade, what do I know?

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of several states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.
If heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?
That never gets old.
