<quoted text>Wow are you stupid, the laws against polygamy and child abuse did not stop Jeffs from marring two children, one 12 and one 15. Why cant you understand that? He broke the laws against polygamy and CHILD abuse, separate laws.
When I talk of polygamy it is understood I am talking about adults. Just like when you talk of SSM. Why can't you understand that?

It's a very simple concept really. Prosecute the criminal, not the marriage. And there are perfectly good laws against the crime he committed. No need to prosecute good people's marriages for Jeff's crimes.

P.S. How does it feel to argue against marriage equality? You do it poorly.

<quoted text>What a morazz, when we look into polygamy we find child abuse and welfare fraud. Looks like you are to damn lazy to research your own cause. How many times do I have to show you that they are tied to each other, by the very actions of the people who wish polygamy ?
Like I said, you argue against marriage equality poorly. Equal protection of the law does not depend on crime rates.

What harm would a marriage of three consenting adult atheist men cause you? And what do those crimes you fear have to do with marriage equality?

You do realize you are arguing against marriage equality don't you?
You do realize what stereotypes are don't you Jizzy? And that they shouldn't be used against innocent people? Probably not. You're an imbecile.

AGAIN, the welfare "fraud" is caused by the government considering any more than one wife a single mother and thus entitled to welfare. It wouldn't happen if poly were legal. In other words, the welfare "fraud" is caused by bigots like you, not polygamists.

AGAIN, we are talking about adults when we are talking about marriage, it's understood. Does any moron use child abuse against SSM? You shouldn't use it against poly marriage either even though you are a moron.

<quoted text>So you agree that if man has more than one wife, and children by all of his wives they all should be on welfare. Well that's really going to add a hardship to local and state governments. Same sex marriage does not do that.
Is that what I said moron? No. I didn't say "I agree that if man has more than one wife, and children by all of his wives they all should be on welfare." Why are you such a lying moron?

I said the reason you perceive welfare abuse is the fault of polygamy being illegal. Only one wife is allowed, any others are single mothers and thus entitled to benefits. I know it's hard for you to understand that because I've said it four times now and you still don't get it. But try.

Anyway, perceived or real, welfare abuse is not a reason to deny equal protection. And cost is certainly not a reason to deny equal protection for SSM or polygamy. Try again.

P.S. You do realize you are arguing against marriage equality I hope.

To be fair, none of us were there. GZ had marks on the back of his head, not the deceased. And GZ didn't have any shady background pop up during trial. I grieve for the parents of TM. Regardless of circumstances. Many with shady pasts embrace great futures, this one will never have the chance. Lesson? Don't fight, unless a life is at stake. Might be one's own...
Zimmerman had been told, by police, to stand down. If he'd stayed in his car we wouldn't have been discussing this. Martin would have been left to his own devices and his future would have unfolded as it should have. I understand the stand your ground approach. Even as an individual with liberal leanings I don't accept the notion that if some nobhead enters my house to steal stuff I am require to roll over belly up and leave if possible. EF that. Enter my home uninvited at your own risk.

However, Zimmerman wasn't defending his home/car/tent/shoebox, he was on neighborhood watch in his car. His duty, IMHO, is to alert the law to suspicious behavior, which he did. He then, against police directive, stuck his nose in where it didn't belong. What happened next is known only by two people, one is dead. Letting Zimmerman off scot free sends the wrong message. But hey ho, that is Florida law in effect. Maybe they'll have a look at the regs involved in neighborhood watch.

It appears Zimmerman does have a history too. It has also come to light that Zimmerman has three prior arrests that were closed, domestic violence, resisting arrest without violence, and resisting arrest with violence (both actually did involve violence). All closed out with no explanation. His father is a retired judge. Am I jumping to conclusions? Of course I am. But not without experience. We've got a trouble making lad around my parts that has no criminal record. He does, however, have a fair few victims. Like Zimmerman, his pop wears a black robe.

If Travon Martin didn't tresspass into a gated community he may still be alive today, unless he chose to rob a liquor store, he is a bad little boy with a rap sheet. If you are going to deffend him know the facts so you don't look as stupid as he does or did
