Further, I am not arguing discrimination/equal protection... nor have I ever. I have made this pretty clear. I am arguing the differences between GM/SM and polygamy and why the government would sanction the former and not the latter. I have requested you to demonstrate the benefits of plural marriage and how they outweigh the negatives. So, no, you have not refuted my argument in the least. You have attempted to refute an argument that you WANT me to have made. You also have not touched my post, since it was just posted at a little after 2 AM EST.
So, the questions are:
1) How could you "refute" a post you had not seen or had not addressed?
2) How could you "refute" a position that I do not have?
3) Can you demonstrate the benefits of polygamy and how the outweigh the negatives?
