Just how do you know it won't work in court, since no one cares enough to take it to court.
I don't think people should have the choice to legally murder or rape either.
Legalizing polygamy won't legalize murder and rape.

Where?
Who are all these people you keep claiming are demanding polygamy be legalized?
Did they bring a case to court?
Or lobby their legislators?
Or get an amendment on the state ballot?

Unlike others in his field, Mark Goldfeder, a law professor at Emory University, thinks that the two rulings had significant impact on the future of polygamy in the United States. Goldfeder, who specializes in the intersection of law and religion, says that the courts will need to find other justifications to keep anti-polygamy statutes in place.

"It's one hundred percent likely that these polygamist cases will come, but they will no longer turn on whether a relationship is immoral," Goldfeder says.

Moral disapproval is not a reason to deny polygamists marriage folks. It used to be back in the 19th Century but you know how those appeals to tradition work as an argument, doncha kiddies?

Wastewater calls it sniveling. You call it whining. What it really is of course is advocating marriage equality. Just like you do. But it's not sniveling or whining when you two clowns do it, eh?
Actually it's your need for attention. It's quite evident Gay Topixs is the only thing you've got going. You've driven any friends you might have, other than your beer bottles, away.

So now your latest argument is marriage equality should not be allowed because the only thing Frankie has going is gay Topix and he has driven away what friends he may have other than beer bottles. Got it. I will add it to my list, giving you full credit of course.

I'll take that as an admission you have no argument against polygamy except hate, ignorance and bigotry.

Advocate SSM= Hero!
Advocate polygamy= needing attention.

I come here for the debate and I beat you badly in that, so now you wanna hurt my feelings.

Hurts you. The truth is you are an ignorant bigot with no argument.

My argument is that moral disapproval is not grounds to deny marriage equality.

And your argument is "Gay Topixs is the only thing you've got going. You've driven any friends you might have, other than your beer bottles, away. Truth hurts"

And Wastewater's argument is the only reason I am here is because I need attention.

We'll leave it to someone honest and objective to decide who's argument makes any sense.

Woman Leaves $13M Fortune to Pet Cat
A 4-year-old stray cat that was rescued from the streets of Rome has inherited a $13 million fortune from its owner, the wealthy widow of an Italian property tycoon.
Maria Assunta left the fortune to her beloved kitty Tommaso when she died two weeks ago at the age of 94. The feline’s newfound riches include cash, as well as properties in Rome, Milan and land in Calabria.
As her health began to fail two years ago, Assunta, who had no children, began to seek out a way to see that Tommaso was properly cared for after she died. In November 2009, she bequeathed her entire estate to the alley cat that she’d rescued.
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2011/12 ...
We can leave money in a will to a beloved pet, so why could that woman not marry the cat?
Don't be a bigot
Good point Poof. I'd marry the damn cat for couple million bucks isn't that what your thinking genius? Damn you are a pervert. Bet you grew up on a farm 'ey?

Scare decisis simply means to stand by things decided, Miss Congeniality. If we stood by things decided, SSM would not be allowed in many states where it now is.
This is a simple concept, but of course it's irrelevant. Polygamy should be allowed. You're just searching for a "gotcha" because you have no real argument against it except your ignorance and bigotry.
'Moreover, they see themselves as part of a GROWING TREND of folks who do not view monogamy as any type of ideal.“There’s this huge group of younger people that are involved in these things,” says Ryan – an observation that seemed borne out of a monthly event called “Poly Cocktails,” held at an upstairs bar on the Lower East Side a few weeks later, in which one would have been hard-pressed to realize that this wasn’t your run-of-the-mill mixer (a guy who’d wandered in accidentally must have eventually figured it out; he was later seen by the bar grinning widely as he chatted up two women).'

Decided by SCOTUS, dumbass. Not the states. The State bans violate the federal constitution.

"scare" decisis......... and you call me ignorant?

I didn't say that's why polygamy SHOULD be illegal, I said that's why polygamy WILL remain illegal.

No one- yourself included- is willing to do the work necessary to make it legal. Just another indication that no one- not even polygamists- care if polygamy is legal or illegal.

The status quo will remain.

Your repetitious blather is argument? Really? Sure seems like an attempt to get attention. Most of us are now just scrolling right past your piles of bullshit. You're done Frankie. Take your ranting elsewhere.

Actually it would legalize the rape of multiple young girls by their "husband".

If polygamy remains illegal, the man could be charged with rape for having sex with his multiple 15 y/o "wives".

So yes, legalizing polygamy WOULD legalize rape.

Since there are no court cases challenging the polygamy bans, the courts don't need any justification to keep anti-polygamy statutes in place.

It's not like the courts can just act all on their own without a case.

Again, where are all these people you keep claiming are clamoring for polygamy to be legal??
