    Obviously you didn't get the memo, all I see is gay marriage supporters fighting over the polygamy thing. They need to STFU, because they started it.

    because morality isn't subjective? because there are major issues that arise in polygamist marriages?

    but to you who cares morality is subjective defined by nothing but the whims of society like that has ever lasted.

    Why are gays and gay marriage supporters fighting against polygamy being recognized?

    Really? I see quite a few who are supportive of it. Not all, but certainly enough to render your generalization completely false.

    You didn't seem to think it was irrelevant when you said there weren't enough magistrates to marry gays in your state....that's why I asked....
    Your comparison is apples and oranges.

    Access to a government service due to no employees willing to do their job based upon "religious beliefs" (essentially denying someone's access to government services based upon discrimination) is in no way comparable to the numbers of a group that suffer from that discrimination.

    Just because they may be few in number, does not justify discriminating against them.

    That is a sad way to look at it.

    I Support both Gay Marriage AND Polygamy.

    I didn't say all, but I see enough that need to shut up about it. Polygamists have just as much right as gays.

    Do you think people didn't start wanting to legally have more than one spouse only after same sex marriages came around? Or perhaps that the exact same argument wasn't used when we struck down bans based on race?

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    So then you can explain, without using of scripture or other hogwash, what is inherently immoral about polygamy.

    Please, explain these "major issues".

    Democracy, pure and simple, is "mob rule". In the case of permitting marriages, the "majority" has claimed superiority over the minority for far too long in this country.
    I think I will let that discussion ride for another day.
