    However they are DIRECTLY related to the main argument against gay marriage, the equal protection clause, and its inception as well as being heavily involved in the constitutional law that makes up the EPC. This means blacks, and more preceisely the civil rights movement, is DIRECTLY related to this because its based off their struggles that the law being used to argue for gay marriage is came into being.

    Polygamists are related to this in absolutely zero ways, other than anti-gay marriage people shoving it in to try and equate the two things as being similar without ever providing any actual factual evidence to show HOW they're similar in ways that are on par with the arguments for gay marriage.

    My Equal Protection Clause protects gender as a protected group that requires a mid level range of necessity by the government to discriminate against them.

    My equal protection clause does not apply to "numbers of people" as a protected group.

    Really, where did you see this?

    And yes, he is a conservative judge, appointed by Reagan and Bush and whose appointment was opposed by liberals.

    Hint: gays can be conservative, we even have a couple who fit that bill who post here.

    Frankly, I could care on that front as well, as long as children were precluded (just as it stands now) and they were willing to swear under oath (said children) that they were under no duress, and this is really what they want.

    Maybe a guardian ad litem.

    For everybody else, see first four words on this post.

    Let's return to the topic-at-hand, shall we?

    Liberals care to weigh in?

    Not when the vote violates the rights of others. It amazes me that some people have a problem with that check. I mean, how many of these same people cheered the SCOTUS decision against Chicago's handgun ban?

    That's funny, cause I see a bunch of "conservatives" shying away from this particular conservative whose also rejecting the polygamist arguments and has given specific reasons for it while not a single, solitary conservative has shown how any of my arguments for same sex marriage can be equally applied to polygamy.

    How about instead of calling people out, you step up.

    Then I guess Bi Bobby's pool of potential people he can feel attracted to and wishes to marry due to love (not that he has to, but assuming the norm) is larger.

    Congratulations Bi Bobby.

    You still only get one, because "number of people" isn't a protected grouping under EPC and furthermore a far stronger case for government interest can be made with polygamy than with same sex marriages.
