    You either have a standard or you don't..
    I don't see anything wrong with either, but again I am a live and let live kind of guy.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Taboo ****..

    I'm tired of having something that is completely odd - such as homosexuality - pushed as "normal" when it's not!
    Okay, so that's what you meant by "people with funky lifestyles." What did you mean by "shovel their lifestyles down other's throats?"
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    It's a standard - not discrimination.

    Using your logic anyone that fails at anything is being "discriminated against."

    Those that absolutely understand that their behavior is not acceptable socially (gay activists) but act out their behavior in social situations to make a point..

    You ever see a gay pride parade?

    You ever hear of a straight pride parade?

    What does this have to do with the subject of co-habitation and / or marriage?

    Absolutely nothing, however people asked questions on my OP so I elaborated and you're questioning one of my elaborations.

    Or I'm merely justifying the "slippery slope" - whatever floats your boat.

    So then why did you a) post it in this thread, and b) post it in response to the first post of this thread?

This judge really has no precedent anymore to rule against polygamy. Nor does any other Federal judge really.

    Yeah, as I have said for many years, I have nothing against gay unions, the problem is that the easy road taken by the gay lobby has really trashed the marriage laws as argued. Their methods are applicable to any number of other forms of marriage I do disagree with.

    Seriously?

    Someone asked me a question on my original post and I answered it...

    Apparently the "slippery slope" comment/joke went over your head.

    The 2/3rds of legal entities (17) with Same-sex Civil Marriage have done it through the legislature or through direct voter ballot approval.
