The only TRUE marriage equality is between MAN & WOMAN. Anything else is just plain weird.
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.

Traditional one man/one woman marriage, same sex marriage and polygamy are all marriage. They are NOT separate institutions.
So lets sum up Jonah1. There is no traditional marriage, there is no same sex marriage, there is no group marriage. There is only marriage. All equally valid.
And oh yeah, you're a fundie. and very angry. Jonah1 The Angry Fundie! YUK!YUK!YUK!
Now type me out a 500 word rebuttal. Spell check! YUK!YUK!YUK!
this would be incorrect.

marriage has traditionally been based on the legal union of two adults of the opposite sexes. traditional unless you view polygamist marriages in the 1800's as traditional as well.

it has been made aware that 2 adults of the same sex can also find a wish to hold this legal bond as well.it seems they should have it given those requesting this type of marriage are citizens of this country and there appears to be no harm involved in it's being.

polygamy includes the marriage of multiple parties over two and according to the government did possess harmful capabilities explaining it's current illegality.

so far government or others have not been able to isolate any real harm homosexual marriage induces.

Bigotry against polygamy in the USA is based on fear and bigotry of Mormons.

What possible harm would a marriage of 3 three consenting adults cause you or anyone else?

mormons have separated themselves from polygamy completely almost 100 years ago. those that practice it now are often shunned by the mormon faith.

i don't know of what fear and bigotry you are referring to so you would have to provide examples.

the harm associated with polygamy was orchestrated by the government after reviewing polygamist's inclusion of cultist practices in many cases including the inclusion of underage brides in multiple marriages and the seclusion of it's parties from common laws. these determinations were made by the government and not by myself so i personally am unaware of the total number of harms determined. i am sure this information is readily available but as we are discussing same sex marriage and not polygamy i see no reason for it's inclusion.

Yeah, yeah, "underage preteen child brides. forced marriages, cults, bla bla bla", please hold the bigotry for a moment. Let's say three men, all consenting adults, want to marry. What do you have against that?

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.

31 states to 5 states does make you the small hate group
And people like rose ho prove that every time he posts[/QUOTE]

Agreed! These shrill gays in here just go crazy with the judgement icons thinking that what we are saying is somehow lessened. 5 states which have gay marriage which got in them because it was snuck in through the back door and not put to a vote. Gay marriage has NEVER been voted for in any state. Whats more, a full 32 states (more than 2/3) have put constitutional bans against it.

Dont they see that this means that if they push too hard, support is there to add a Constitutional Amendment to the US Constitution permanently banning it? They would do well to drop the adversarial relationship they have with everyone. They just piss more people off, and motivate people who would normally not care about it one way or another. My quiet neighbors are suddenly organizing prevent California from lifting the ban currently still in place after gay judge Walker overturned it.

Well excuse my rudeness but it was rude of you to equate polygamists with forced child brides etc.

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.
