If I said to you "learn to recognize gender." as a dig against SSM, you'd scream bloody murder. Yet you use the same ridiculous insult against me with a clear conscience. Classic hypocrite.

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

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.

it'll be interesting to watch, for sure.

It doesn't seek equality under the law.

1 Man + 1 Woman = 2 People
1 Man + 1 Man = 2 People
1 Woman = 1 Woman = 2 People
2(or more) Men + 1 Woman > 2 People
1 Man + 2 (or more) Women > 2 People

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.

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?

Not trying to control you, just criticizing your off topic hateful religious agenda.

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?

I don't want to start a parade. I simply want to discuss marriage equality without your fear, ridicule and attempts at censorship.

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!
