    I don't understand - how is polygamy any different than gay marriage?

    The way I see it is that the government is pandering to certain groups when they address lifestyle issues. Our government cannot say polygamy is wrong while legitimizing gay marriage...

    You either have a standard or you don't..

    That's not the point. Anyone can declare themselves married and who's to say they're not? The cohabitation was a means to enforce a restriction on that.

    It means I don't like asshat activists that portray their gayness or polygamy as "normal."

    I don't care who people screw, however if you're going to make a single issue your lifes mission then you're an asshat.

    Legalizing same-sex marriage is merely the recognition that it's wrong to discriminate on the basis of gender. There's plenty of precedent in American jurisprudence for ending such discrimination. There isn't nearly as much precedent (assuming there's any at all) for allowing the number of participants in a legal marriage to grow beyond 2.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I get that you meant this when you talked about mainstreaming, but what does "people with funky lifestyles shouldn't shove their lifestyles down others throats" mean?

    Our state and federal government is pandering to special interest groups for votes - in short picking winners and losers, yet you want to talk **** with one-line nonsense?

    If you have a different perspective I would love to hear it - because to me what is accepted socially or by the government is nothing more than social engineering.

    No, that's not how it's going down. It's about discriminating against homosexuality.

    It means gays, those who like to get beaten while they screw, S&M etc...

    Taboo ****..

    I'm tired of having something that is completely odd - such as homosexuality - pushed as "normal" when it's not!
