Why should polygamy be prohibited?
Why should marriages between the elderly, or the infirmed, or the infertile, or those who refuse to procreate be prohibited?
Where is the requirement of procreation mentioned in any of the marriage laws throughout the country?
If same sex marriage becomes the law of the land then polygamy cannot be denied either.
Marriages between the elderly, or the infirmed, or the infertile, or those who refuse to procreate should not be prohibited because they still represent traditional marriage. Same sex does not. Its a perversion of marriage.
Don't know of any requirement of procreation mentioned in any of the marriage laws throughout the country.

Do you think it would be a good thing if 99% of heterosexuals who get married did not have children?

That's why the scriptures are clear that marriage is between a MAN and a WOMAN.
The Buy-bull is crap. We should not make our laws based on it. You talk about getting married to animals because you don't have an argument against gay marriage.

We got the time to see if group marriage, inter-family marriage and polygamy will become a reality some day. When we have a country of leaders that are willing and able to change the definition of marriage to accommodate homosexuals in their goal of "marriage" then anything is possible. We already know this is possible.
Its the "mentally incompetent" that are promoting same sex marriage. They have already succeeded in legalizing murder via abortions so their is no reason to think they will stop here.
Same sex marriage has been legal here for over a decade. And no one's insisted they allow people to marry their toasters, you can relax.

That is a good point I had not thought of. John Lennon would have loved to live in today's culture. All you need is love...Maybe this is where they are getting their ideas from.

No need to say flat circle, a circle is, by definition, flat. And the fact the buy-bull indicates the earth is flat is one of the ways we know it's full of nonsense.

Great minds think alike. Snicker. Unless Lassie is 18 years of age, you will need at least the written consent of both of her legal parents and depending on how young Lassie actually is and the state where you live, approval of the Courts. If you get that far, Lassie will have to be able to sign the license and provide affirmation during a ceremony of some sort. Your concept for the day is legal consent, moron.

<quoted text>Sorry buttercup, it really doesn't matter if they should be allowed to marry or not, the state has a compelling interest in maintaining marriage as the establishment of a kinship where one does not already exist. Brothers and sisters, who already have a legal kinship have no right to the preferential one established by marriage. Since you can't beat strict scrutiny, there will never be a legal right to incestuous marriage, whether there should be or not. You and your sister will have to be content to shacking up in the eyes of the state, sorry.
You are wrong. Once marriage is redefined to accommodate one group it can easily be redefined again to include brother-sister marriages.
This is why a person who supports same sex marriage cannot make a case against other kinds of marriages. Once a law or principle is no longer considered fixed it can easily be manipulated by the powers that be.

Those are problems among the disaffected innercity poor. They aren't getting the message about safer sex.

A stupid question. Gay marriages won't figure into a straight couple's decision to have kids, or not...

The CDC makes a solid case for gay marriage:
++++++++++
"Only have sex (i.e., anal, vaginal or oral) if youÂ’re in a
mutually monogamous relationship with a partner you
know is not infected"
++++++++++
And the CDC also breaks out with this safe practice tip:

"Use a condom every time you have anal, vaginal or oral sex"
sex"

Rock on; CDC! ;o))
Right. "Safe sex". Millions and millions of people have diseases and have killed their young in the name of "safe sex".

I agree. I asked if it would be a good thing if 99% of heterosexual married couples did not have babies.

Doesn't society have vested interest in having heterosexual couples to have babies?

So why should we support relationships that cannot procreate?

Two naked men laying face down on the ground in the desert kissing and spilling seed and shedding tears of joy; while Samuel hides and watches behind the Rock to the North; carving Bible verses on a stone tablet......is a bit more than changing fig leaves; sweetheart
