Are you saying that if I support poly marriage it means I'm gay just like you? Do you support polygamy? Why? Why not?

If I am gay or not is irrelevant, why are you mad?

well, frankie, since SCOTUS didn't make polygamy legal, guess that means that you'll be filing law suits to take your swing at that one.

Prop 8 is gone. A victory for marriage equality. You should be happy! I am. That you are not is telling. Are you against marriage equality?

Those who can count can see polygamy doesn't seek equal protection of the law. Those who can't grasp this, yet continue to argue it as though it were a valid point are saying more about themselves than anything else.
I'm sorry you can't count.
You are a hypocrite.

That's what the bigots said about SSM not too long ago. Look how far we have PROGRESSED. But we're not done yet.

Marriage. There is no one right way.

What made you think I was mad? Do you have reading comprehension issues?

Are you seriously in the closet (or straight?) It honestly never occurred to me in all these years that you were not gay.

It's irrelevant if I am gay or not. Why does it mater so much to you? I support your right to marry who you want. Do you support others same right? If so, why are you mad at me? if not, you are a hypocrite. Easy!

<quoted text>Hi Frank. The people requesting polygamy are for the most part doing so based on religious doctrine.
What would you do or say if the local government in Union City, Cali. Passed a law that required you to go to church( Chosen by them) every Sunday. You could not use your PC, TV, go to the movies or go shopping, no shots of Dickle, not a single can of PBR. All based on religious doctrine, that was not your chosen faith. What would you do or say?
Jizzy, why do you attempt to use religion against marriage equality?

As I was saying....( a few years ago ), The bigots are on the wrong side of history, on this issue, and today's Supreme Court decision proved me right. All the haters managed to do was delay the inevitable but they couldn't stop it. Victory is sweet....

Welcome California as the 13 state to legalize gay marriage. And with the striking down of DOMA, gays now have legal standing to successfully challenge EVERY state ban on same sex marriage.

I'll be marching in this year's San Francisco's Gay Pride Parade with a new sense of FREEDOM and PRIDE!

You are saying that polygamy shouldn't be allowed because you don't like some of the people who practice it. Nice!

How about 3 atheist men? Do they have your blessing to marry?

Congratulations! This is a day to celebrate!

But the struggle is hardly over. There are still many people being denied marriage equality. Let's not forget them. they matter too.

Bowser - the honey of my choice - and I have mixed emotions regarding this subject. The Big Government ruling class has been "helping the economy" by pumping $Billions of hard earned taxpayer money into a war against a tiny group of ragtag ill clad mostly illiterate Taliban. The question arises as to whether this is a wise expenditure of taxpayer money. Just like the vast majority of American taxpayers, the Taliban does not approve of the absurd notion of "marriages" of two or more persons of the same sex. On the other hand, both Bowser and I are at the forefront of those who applaud the corrupt agenda driven Government legal system. Once the high paid Government judges grant our Homosexual friends the "right" to "marry" one another, the day will soon come when we dog lovers' "equality under the "law" will no longer be denied.

You're really bad at this.

It doesn't "mater," it's just discussion. It's odd that you wouldn't just say either way, though. Maybe you should seek therapy if you aren't comfortable.

Again, what indicated to you that I was mad? If my previous post had been presented as a question on the SAT, and you indicated by multiple choice answer that the author was "mad," you'd get that question wrong.

I've already stated my position on polygamy.

Many Christians denominations recognize and practice gay marriage. You still might have a chance. What will be your next fight for justice? free drugs, prostitution? Polygamy? Or will you just go home?
