    I don't want to waste, something I consider precious to me, following lousy misguided rules.
    Whats interesting is that I feel the same way, yet come to a very different conclusion.

    Do I have to explain the 14th amenddment and the equal protection clause to you?

    Do tell because if it, all of sudden makes your spouse not love you anymore, we should look into it.

    Granted, that second one is less likely to apply, since minors don't have full legal rights.

    Still, I'm agnostic about this.
    I think the polygamy argument is pretty weak. I will try and look into it more tomorrow. Been a long day today.

    By the way, I almost posted in my last post "Dav, no helping him, make him do his own work", then decided not to...and turns out I should have.

    No, just the ruling the judge made. You have read it, right?

    I'm also anxiously awaiting a legal analysis. Surely you have one and are not just spouting nonsense?

    I've always thought this was the worst ever argument for gay marriage.
    Bestiality does not affect people (and animals) not engaged in it. Pedophilia/statutory rape does not affect anyone not involved. Marrying an animal or a young child does not affect anyone not involved in the marriage. Yet they're still illegal, as they should be.
    There are good arguments for gay marriage, but this is not one of them.
