    There is a reason ugly people are sometimes called "horse faced".

    Too bad.....I was looking forward to pix of your horse.

Most Americans don't know on a personal level incestuous or polygamous couples, therefore the fight for their rights won't be in the forefront of American politics.

    Since it is a uniquely conservative issue and phenomenon, conservatives will have to chalk up the arguments for pro-incest and pro-polygamous marriages. You can start with the OT, which is a unique selling point among our nations most religious and might win you sympathy in the courts.
    Please name the "conservative Christian" denominations that practice polygamy today. Go!

    While I do not argue against same sex marriage.....
    Not all homosexual individuals were "born that way". And, as many in the gay rights activism groups would agree, the federal government has no business attempting to determine whether one was "born that way" or if they "chose to be that way".

    This is a horrible argument against polygamy.

    I do have a question for anyone who opposes it to answer....


    What is inherently wrong with polygamy? On what grounds do people oppose it?

    That doesn't stop me from being cynical about how our courts will see things. They're gonna do whatever the hell they want, one way or the other. They are our robed overlords, after all.
    Do you have an issue with more freedoms?

    Probably none.
    The point is this: The anti gay marriage folks said that gay marriage would lead to all sorts of things, including marrying animals, polygamy, you name it. Now that a trio has applied for a marriage license for a polygamous marriage, they're seeing their predictions come true. Never mind that said marriage license isn't approved, will never be approved, and that polygamy is not a civil rights issue.


    It's like this:

    See! See! Approve gay marriage, and polygamy is next! Told you so, na na na na na!
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    If you aren't intelligent enough to determine that an animal cannot sign a binding contract like marriage....... I don't know how to help you.

    As they say in the south (where, sadly, gay marriage is less accepted), "You Can't fix Stupid"

    I am not being facetious in my question......

    I see absolutely no reason why those who willingly enter into a plural marriage should be denied the right to do so....

    You didn't take my question seriously.... so I'd appreciate an honest response.

    That depends on whether or not bi-sexuality is genetic or choice. That said, and as I've said throughout the SSM debate, this is a country supposedly of being able to make choices that harm no others, and choosing to married one of one's own gender or multiple of whatever gender should be allowed and accepted between consenting and informed adults. So for example a man married to two women in different areas that are unaware of each other, should not be allowed, ie two separate marriages, ... but one marriage between multiple partners should be, imo.

    The last part of that is correct: I didn't take your question seriously. Well, I didn't take your post seriously at any rate. I did, however, answer the question you posed:

    What is inherently wrong with polygamy? On what grounds do people oppose it?
    and I replied:

    Probably none.

    So, next time please read my response before calling me names.

    As for the rest of my response:

    The point is this: The anti gay marriage folks said that gay marriage would lead to all sorts of things, including marrying animals, polygamy, you name it. Now that a trio has applied for a marriage license for a polygamous marriage, they're seeing their predictions come true.

    It's like this:

    See! See! Approve gay marriage, and polygamy is next! Told you so, na na na na na!

    That, too, was meant seriously. Why else would anyone be posting a story about a trio in Montana who applied for a polygamous marriage license?
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
