    So it appears that you have some basis for worrying about extending the reasoning, but I would be hesitant to read the lack of a discussion of an explicit constitutional test as a reading that a constitutional test does not exist.

    By the way, I must admit that you were correct regarding my discussion of the most recent polygamist decision. I thought the Supreme Court had already issued a "cert. denied" order in regards to the Utah Supreme Court decision, but it appears that case is actually still awaiting an order from the circuit court.
    Oh, it certainly exists, I'm just saying that we can no longer assume that the court will follow precedent in applying it. They've jumped that ship.

    I make no excuses for people of faith who practice hatred and disrespect. Are you excusing those who practice hatred and disrespect against people of faith?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    If you're against polygamy, that's the question you should be answering instead of asking others to justify your position on polygamy.

    Yes but, they couldn't slap the face of the religious in the process.

    No. I disrespect people all the time, when their actions don't warrant respect.

    Similarly, allowing interracial marriage means we have to allow children to marry abstract concepts like "wellness," or allow the dead to marry furniture, right?

    Or maybe you would agree that the 14th amendment is a little more nuanced?

    You conveniently didn't answer the question, which is, in effect, an answer it itself.

    Edit - my mistake, you did say no - my apologies.

    Being technically possible to duplicate some of the benefits of a legal marriage contract does not at all uphold unequal treatment under the law.

    Yes some are very unChrist like but, they are the small minority. This is why I have no church I attend.

    I was pretty sure the word "no" consisted of an answer to a question, but whatever dude. Have fun playing with your new mandatory gay husband.
