    From a federal standpoint, yes. People do have that right. They have the right to refuse service to blacks for any reason. There is no constitutional right to be treated equal by your peers, and no real federal authority to outlaw discrimination.

    The reason you can't refuse service to blacks at a restaurant isn't because the government protects people from discrimination, but because the government protects interstate commerce, and refusing service to blacks is just not good business.

    People do not have the right to wage aggressive economic warfare, with the assistance of public infrastructure, against any group let alone minorities.

    It's not just about good business, it's about waging war with the assistance of public infrastructure against minority groups. That's bad for business and society. It's harming society under the guise of a business "open to the public". If you want a private club that excludes blacks, that's your business but if you're open to the public it's public business.

    Economics aside, we as a people, have every right to ban such behavior from public business because it's harmful to society.

    It is none the less true. Polygamy stems from a time when women were subjugated and treated as inferior. We have advanced from that primitive behavior and I see no reason to go back to it.

    Can't see how this can be stopped.
    If you can't see the difference, I can't help you. But I suspect that you are beyond help anyway.

    Its rather ironic that you...a champion of homosexuality and gay marriage...feel you have the right to impose your definitions on others. THIS is ok...but not THAT.

    Gotcha....blatant hypocrisy at its finest.

    If you were making a religious statement about your own religion, then you would be fine. But you are making claims for others, thus you must back your statement up or be dismissed as making it up.

    And that is WITHOUT polygamy. Another issue that is not really an issue specific to polygamy.

    Also, as long as it is not YOUR family tree..... what business is it of yours?
    Ironically, by making gay marriage legal, it will ultimately serve to end the concept of legal marriage altogether. Unintended (or intended) consequences will abound.

    If 500 sane, consenting adult females want to marry one guy in one giant service - fine with me. Weird...but still fine with me.

    Who sane, consenting adults marry is their business...AND NOT THE STATE'S OR ANYONE ELSE'S.
