if you wish a discussion i fail to see the need for your rudeness.
i have never seen 3 men wanting to marry. if there were 3 men wanting to marry each other they in turn would have to convince the government and those who determined harm in polygamy in order to convince them to create the allowance of it.
given we are discussing same sexed marriage amongst 2 adults i myself don't see the inclusion of polygamy being a factor.
and i have not exemplified bigotry, please do not make false inferences to my posts.
thank you for your time in this. i may come back later but for now have to leave.
Well excuse my rudeness but it was rude of you to equate polygamists with forced child brides etc.

this seems to be a common reflection of those opposed to gay marriages.
unfortunately it is based on opinion with no factual basis in that it should interfere with another citizens rights t a basic freedom such as marriage.
one blockage to gay marriage could be finding a harm embodied in it but so far none has been found.
LOL "with no factual basis"? Oh PLuueeeezzz. I don't support gay marriage for the same reason I don't support bestiality, polygamy, pedophilia, & god forbidden furries! They are perversions & nothing else. They don't accomplish anything! The way I see it, if you're going to call gay marriage "equal", then you might was well call those who marry kids, animals, objects, & even themselves as "equal" to. It's a slippery slope, many of which I see many sexual deviants here support!

It is a FACT gays cannot reproduce, because it takes a man & a woman to procreate. This is a FACTUAL BASIS of biology!

Don't you mean YOUR agenda. If I'm correct, wasn't it your gay community that propose the idea of gay porn in the classroom lol? The Gay Manifestios are the ones supporting the idea of showing children gay porn in the classroom, not us normal folks. Seems to me the Gay Nazi Party wants our kids exposed to what gays do in the bedroom...LOL.

I take it NAMBLA must be getting desperate to fulfill their evil sexual urges....ROFL

It is also a FACT that reproduction is not a requirement for marriage. Is everyone in your town retarded or just you?

It is also a FACT that marriage is between a man and a woman only. You want to change the facts to suit you and we just wont let you. Keep puching and we will keep pushing back even harder. WE are winning, not you.

The difference is that I'm not Homophobic. I'm just not in favor of gay marriage. I have several long time friends that are gay, what people do in their private life is their business. So you got your information messed up again Jack.

Yes it's wrong to do the same thing dan does, but after a time, it's hard to resist. The point is dan can't argue and always makes threats, you just saw his threat yesterday to have me meet him at a local Home Depot. When he writes.."LOL" he actually seems very angry. I am not the only one that has been threatened and insulted by him. He started it.

That describes me too. I have great gay friends, both male and female. But I am against gay marriage, and they understand that even if they dont agree. Gays who resent my stance and done know me will assume I am a homophobic Christian citing some fantasmogorical Bible scripture. I am not religious at all, not homophobic, and against gay marriage.

Not rude, just part of the reality. When you look at the cases which have challenged state laws against polygamy as a violation of rights guaranteed under the US Constitution over the last 20 years or so, you'll find that they are all cases which involve child brides and/or forced marriages. It's men behaving very badly, who have been at the forefront, waving the banner of the right to polygamy, get used to it. Although you may finally get a respectable case out of that TV family, unless he's married sisters or something that automatically sets off the creepy meter. You'll also find that these cases all come out of Utah, which not only does not allow official polygamous marriages, it criminalizes the unofficial ones to boot, something almost all other states don't.

There is one reason and one reason only that there will never be a constitutionally recognized right to poly relationships as legal marriage under the US Constitution and it has nothing to do with creepy marriages, hatred of Mormons, Muslims or anyone else who wants such a relationship, the compelling state interest of the state actually being able to regulate marriage and the reality that any limit beyond one marriage per person at a time would be indefensibly arbitrary. Two spouses? Once you answer the question of whether your second wife counts against your first wife's total and vice versa, or if they can have a second spouse too and what, if any, are the rights, protections, benefits, responsibilities and obligations of the parties to these marriages are to be, you get asked the question of why the hell are you discriminating against those of us who want 3, 4, 5, 6...??? If you want a poly relationship, the state shouldn't prohibit it. Issues of underage "brides" and/or "grooms", forced relationships, fraud, etc, aren't problems inherent to poly but to some people who do it and shouldn't be overlooked. But if you want the states to regulate that Gordian knot for you, because you have that "right", forget about it, you're going to have to work that one out for yourselves.

Hick, you really need to go back for that GED.

Supreme Court rulings enforcing the national definition of marriage as solely between man and wife in fact had nothing to do with child brides or forced marriages.

Plural marriage was very common throughout the Americas before your white trash ancestors got here. The same was true in Asia and Africa and even pre-Christian Europe.

I may be Gay, but I sure as hell am not a hypocrite. Do you know what a hypocrite is? Well, let me tell you, it's someone just like you. Someone who pretends to be a Christian, goes to church and pretends to serve the Lord, then outside of church they insult, curse and judge other people. You better go look at yourself in the mirror, stupid homophobia creep!
