    1) I don't believe you one bit. Everything you post on this subject reeks of fear.

    2) Who you calling "sweetie"? You sure you're not a little gay?

    Sounds like a personal problem.

    Someone who hides his gender sure might be.

    You are not being very clear when you are espousing for consequences for cheaters. I also noted you really didn't address any points. I'm guessing that means you have nothing to refute with.

    And how does that differ from big government to small government?

    And you are free to move somewhere else. No one is making you stay here.

    You also seem very unaware of how your income generating activities are only possible because of the regulatory and security framework your taxes help pay for.

    I grow weary repeating myself.

    NO!

    Doesn't matter. This was about a law you said you would like to see put into place. That means that it would apply to everyone. That would make you trying to hold other people to vows that you simply believe they should be making, not ones they actually made. And you want to do this using criminal laws, something not generally done when it comes to breaking a promise/vow, even in a civil agreement.

    Also, according to God's law, if you are divorced, you would be cheating by simply having that second wife.

Sure, the decision's a result-driven piece of fish wrap whose legal reasoning (if it can be dignified as that) is so thoroughly disingenuous as to border on being flat dishonest--but there it is.

    I first spun out an analogy to public nudity to poke fun at the vapid, uninformed assertions I've seen on various threads that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right.
    Which is a strawman since the two arent related.

    I then mentioned bigamy, adult incest, and bestiality as examples of sex-related crimes Justice Scalia had listed in Lawrence. What do any of these acts have to do with "the legality of sexual relations, not the subject of this thread, between people of the same sex"--which you claim is the question I am asking? Nothing whatever. So again, why your claim?
    Sex-related crimes is talking about the legality of sexual relations. They have everything to do with each other. And that is not the point in this thread so it is a red hearing to this thread.

    And that is your personal position. You also have the right to personally do that. However, that doesn't mean that everyone should or does, nor does it mean that it should be illegal to cheat on your marriage partner, despite your beliefs that cheating on your spouse is wrong.

    Hey you want to cheat and avoid the legal penalties?...get a divorce first.
