    I read quite a few replies to this (since my earlier remarks) - and see some argument that support this proposed measure. I just still don't follow.

    If someone isn't able to even afford birth control then perhaps they need to just avoid sex and abstain - obviously they wouldn't be able to afford properly using BC and it not working right . . .doesn't seem absurd to expect responsibility and accountability be present first.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

Can you show me proof to the contrary? And please note that I've already pointed out the two exceptions: Sharia as relevant info for demonstration of mental states, and arbitration.
    So you have no proof just your opinion

    I guess in a way thats smart because when you get exposed this badly what are your real options, you either have to admit your are wrong and theres egg on your face or just lie and act like the other 155 posts in this thread didnt happen

    also just to address you meaningless attempt to change the subject, I am 100% fine with polygamy as long as its consensual adults. But again to people that live in REAL life polygamy has one REAL obstacle how do you regulate it law wise, meaning how is property/money/and rights dictated.

    SSM doesnt have that problem, nothing changes besides gaining equal rights.

    but again please offer ANYTHING of substance that addresses your wrongs in this thread and stays on topic.

    also very funny to see you back pedal AGAIN and watch you own logic slap you right in the mouth.
    Whats the difference in your eyes only you can be correct

    I provided you with an argument. Do you have any proof or an argument in support of your position? Also, since you asked...

    the difference is everything you have brought up is either flat out wrong, meaningless to the debate at hand or the so called logic you present can be used against you and you have no reply so you just move on.

    Re: Obama, in stand for gay rights, calls for repeal of DOMA

    All of your links are about attempts to ban the presence of Sharia in US courts, not about Muslims trying to get Sharia to replace our legal system. There are lots of contexts in which Sharia is relevant or necessary for the functioning of our legal system as it is now, in much the same way that the principles of many religions are relevant to certain types of legal proceedings. I've already pointed out two of them:
    1) Sharia is relevant to the mental state of certain Muslims accused of crimes. This does not mean that Sharia is infiltrating our criminal justice system, it means that as part of the factual analysis that juries are called upon to perform, they need to look at all the relevant evidence. Similarly, a court may look to the religious beliefs of, say, a Christian, or a Hindu to the extent that those beliefs informed the mental state of the individual in question.
    2) Arbitration proceedings - if two people agree between themselves to apply Sharia to, say, a contract, that's their business, and also has no impact on our legal system.
    I'm now going to add a third one, raised by one of your articles:
    3) Wills. People can, and should be able to set up their wills however the hell they want to. If someone wants to bequeath his estate in accordance with Sharia edict, that's his business. People of other faiths do this all the time.

    In short, you really don't know what you're talking about, but you might want to review your own articles more thoroughly. I'll leave you with a relevant quote from the last one:

    "While Muslim groups are angry about the Oklahoma referendum, leaders of their community say the way the U.S. currently handles matters pertaining to Sharia law is fine."
