    Isn't "restraint" a subjective term?

    Is it your goal to subject others to live by terms YOU see fit for them to live.. when it has no bearing on YOUR rights?
    I've got better things to do than to continue to answer and re-answer your questions, as well as put up with your interrogation style 'discussion'.

    Good bye.

    If a government employee wants to practice their belief and do gods work during work hours, then let god pay his/her salary instead of the tax payers.

    Nobody would be discriminated against or their civil liberties lost if the government employee just minds their own business and does the job they are paid to do. The government doesn't get to decide who gets married to whom, anymore. So therefore, neither does the government employee.

    You don't seem to understand that there are people out there who WANT to live this way. You seem to be stuck in the idea that its an institution of a man exerting his authority over helpless women.

    Yes, that has occurred, but because it has occurred in some cases, does not mean it occurs in all cases. This should not be the basis to deny this legal recognition to polygamous unions.
    Good evening, Caine.

    : We seem to follow Roman law, which meant the first-born inherited the bulk of the estate, including titles. English nobility still follows that law, which is why we read that so-and-so is third or fifth or whatever in line for the throne. The King of Siam had many wives, as an example, but the firstborn of his legal first wife inherited the throne. The rest were provided for, of course, but only one was the ruler of the country, and they were trained from early childhood to assume that role. In this Country, the rules are not so formal, but I would assume the offspring of the first legal wife takes precedence over later born children of any of any of the wives he may have in a polygamous marriage.

    Nor would anybody be discriminated against or their civil liberties lost if gay couples simply stayed home and stopped asking for stuff.

    But, since they've all got a right to be there, we may as well follow the law and accommodate those with sincere beliefs the best we can while making sure the office provides all services required of it.

    There's an idea. How about all the heterosexuals who are distressed by this ruling simply stay home and refuse to get married ever. That would show them.

    Again I don't support institutions that subjugate or demean individuals whether that want to demeaned or not. It's barbaric.

    I am gay. I know what choices I did and did not make. My sexual orientation is not one of them.

    There is evidence. People just choose to ignore it or disregard it because they have already made up their minds about it.

    Sounds like an argument for incest marriage.

    If they are all consenting adults, there should be no way you or I or anyone is able to stop it.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
