    The hell? Ive never opposed either of those things in my entire life. That would be a fundamental violation of my moral code: that it's none of my god damn business what consenting adults do with each other.

    LMAO im not rejecting ANYBODY fail, try again

    what you posted doesnt change the fact that polygamy, which i would support if given a vote (and have said so many many times here at DP) is not a equal right argument its a new right.

    There is nothing in the Constitution that prohibits a state from legalizing polygamy.

    There is no new right that would be created. It's really that simple.

If you can have a husband and wife you should be able to have a husband and a husband, or three husbands, or what have you. The association of polygamy with abuse is an offensive stereotype that is every bit as offensive and degrading to polygamists as anything stereotype about gays.

    Honestly, winston, look at yourself. It looks incredibly small minded. Just switch the word polygamous with gay in everything you just said and it is clear how intolerant you are being. You're just on the wrong side of progress on this.
    Oh dear what a lame defense of your disingenuous position on polygamy

    I hope this helps...

    "In a 1992 report by John Leo in U.S. News and World Report, he notes some books which were part of New York City's public school curriculum.

    The first-grade book, "Children of the Rainbow", stated on page 145, which states that teachers must "be aware of varied family structures, including...gay or lesbian parents," and "children must be taught to acknowledge the positive aspects of each type of household." Another children book is Heather Has Two Mommies, which is about a lesbian couple having a child through artificial insemination. Another book, Gloria Goes to Gay Pride, states, "Some women love women, some men love men, some women and men love each other. That's why we march in the parade, so everyone can have a choice."

    It's easy to see where things go from there, as marriage is the next step in the agenda.

    Homosexual Agenda - Conservapedia
    The Homosexual Agenda, or homosexual ideology, consists of a set of beliefs and objectives designed to promote and even mandate acceptance and approval of homosexuality, and the strategies used to implement such. This article notes that the goals and means of this movement include indoctrinating students in public school, restricting the free speech of opposition, obtaining special treatment for homosexuals, distorting Biblical teaching and science, and interfering with freedom of association. Advocates of the homosexual agenda seek special rights for homosexuals that other people don't have, such as immunity from criticism (see hate speech, hate crimes). Such special rights will necessarily come at the expense of the rights of broader society.

    President Barack Hussein Obama and nearly all Democrat politicians now advocate the homosexual agenda, reflecting the growing financial power of the homosexual network.
    Among all the liberal belief systems, the homosexual ideology is the most self-centered or selfish - unlike the vast charity performed by churches, homosexual charity can be considered an oxymoron.
    Seriously?????

    I mean really????

    You believe and follow this line of thinking????

    Actually - it explains a great deal about you and your posts.....but it's still so very sad.......

    And they were dead wrong.

    I'm curious. Why do you equate interracial marriage to gay marriage, when the former has zero control over its condition? Are you suggesting that ALL homosexuals are/were born gay?
