Actually it does.....what the state did was change the concept of marriage...its meaning and function. The state could declare any consenting adult personal intimate relationship "marriage". What is the legal, cutural, social, hisorical, and/or teligious foundation of a "husband and husband", or a "wife and wife", union?
One must ask, what is marriage? A lawful contract between two consenting adults. So how does the names of the two affect the contract, Bill and Sam, Sue and Jill? Husband and Husband wife and wife.

As I have said to you many times, I don't want to enter a poly marriage. I simply want to discuss marriage equality without your fear, ridicule and attempts to silence me.
Your fear of the mere attempt to discuss polygamy in relation to marriage equality speaks volumes. What are you afraid of?
WTF, do you need me to roll out the red carpet? Talk away, no one is stopping you. Its a free country, get up on the soap bax and let it rip. Or in your case, charge the battery on your Hoveround and roll on.

I don't want to change the law although I think it should be changed. I have my own battles to fight just to continue to stay alive and happy.

I simply want to discuss marriage equality without your fear, ridicule and attempts at censorship. This is a discussion forum. Stop trying to censor me.

That is exactly his problem. His opinion has been over-ruled by the Supreme Court and he continues to cling desperately to his opinions, trying to fabricate some "fact". And, being the fool he is, he doesn't even realize that not all gay people even engage in anal sex! So he has failed once again to make a valid point.
I haven't given an opinion, I'm only mocking.

SCOTUS ruled that ss couples are equal to marriage.

Reality is not listening. Ss couples are still ever only a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Maybe SCOTUS needs a unanimous decision??? Think that will work???

Smirk.

Dang son why do you continually attack me then?

It's because you are a hypocrite. So you get mad at me. Don't shoot the messenger, it's on you, not me. You against marriage equality, I am for it. Duh.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage. If you disagree, tell me why, don't just stupidly attack me with your moronic ad hominem.

So you don't really care if polygamy is illegal or not. Thanks for clearing that up.

So if a man and woman are both sterile, its only half a marriage.

Then you and all who wish to join in a poly marriage, need to file suit, hire a lawyer and get the laws changed. THE LGBT people did so. Are you that much better than them????

Let's try a more important question. What difference will the answer to your question make?
Here, let me help you out. NONE.
Have a nice day!!
Perfect example of your responses.

When denying the truth doesn't work, then the truth doesn't matter.

Like the SCOTUS ruling, your opinion is having the same effect on reality.

You have a partnership, you do not have a marriage. Even you admitted two key differences out of many.

Oh, parents produce children. Ss couples mutually don't. Ever.

And if children have a choice between the two, they choose parents.

Smile.

Of course, Frank wouldn't prevail, because they seem to suffer from the delusion that a union of three or more people seeks equal, not greater, protection of the law.

Frank is seriously at odds with reality.

Ya I get it, I know criminals never purchise there guns at gun shops but I still dont care. It just makes me feel better at nite knowing that some people cant buy guns...I just dont like them, they scare me If u wanna protect your family learn how to throw knifes or something I dunno but guns are scary. Maybe if the criminals know almost every law abiding citizen is unarmed theyll stop buying guns on the black market I dunno...just leeve me alone I dont know how to use a gun so what difference would it make if I had one?? Id be too scared to touch it. If someone breaks into your house with a whole crapload of ak's and and ar's just call 911 and go hide in the closet and wait patiently until the proper authorities get there. If they kill you and your whole family hopefully theyll catch the murderes and try them in a court of law according to the law. There...justice for the murdereres theyll go to prison for a few years and well have a real nice funeral for u and your whole family. So there...

When did having children become a requirement in marriage? Hell two idiots can reproduce, you're living proof of that.

Where did I say they were a requirement? Why would they need to be required when they are a natural result of mating behavior and the marriage union?

Clearly the idiot is you.

No. That is incorrect.

I think polygamy should be allowed. And you don't. I am in favor of marriage equality and you are not. That is how it is. Why do you attempt to spin it otherwise?
