    Apparently the "slippery slope" comment/joke went over your head.
    I get why you answered a variety of questions. I'm asking why you posted your very first post to this thread, since you just admitted that it has nothing to do with the subject of the thread. This post right here:

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

    Yes, you are correct. Most of that has been in the last year.

    I didn't admit my OP has nothing to do with the topic, I said that the post you were referring to was a response to another individual, in which created a different path...

    Why do you even care anyways.

    You want to debate this issue or talk about posts that weren't directed at you and that confuse you?

This judge really has no precedent anymore to rule against polygamy. Nor does any other Federal judge really.
    Polygamy advocate groups hail judge's ruling in Utah | Fox News
    Looks like we now have another group that can sue a baker because his moral conscience won't allow him to produce a wedding cake depicting the groom's many brides. I don't believe polygamy is recognized if a woman decides to take on more than one husband at a time. That will surely have to change for that would be a clear cut case of sex discrimination.

    Also, whats wrong with rewriting the law?
    To ensure equal protection and application of the laws, we'd either have to rewrite the laws and make new ones altogether that would account for marriages ranging from 2 to however many. Basically the laws would have to reflect the concept that the size of the marriage, in the legal sense, was variable, and the rules would be on how one enters and leave the union, as well as precedence on decision making. We have been so far removed from polygamy that as a whole we no longer concept how to make such laws work. Had we never gotten rid of the practice then as freedoms were recognized (women's and civil rights among others) and refined, these changes would have been reflected in the polygamy area as well.

    But if you are in a marriage and you don't have sex, the marriage isn't dissolved unless one or both of the participants want it dissolved.

    You can be in jail, a lifetime sentence, and get married. Not much conjugal bliss there.

    Or getting access to benefits that only traditionally married couples receive. AT this point in American history the leadership may as well begin marrying their horses.

    Bakers will just have to prepare larger wedding cakes.
