    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Not in the context of "marriage equality" they aren't.

    The thing is so many people are more interested in venting their emotions then actually proving an argument.
    Using the argument doesn't prove the fallacy false. Using the argument and demonstrating it's legitimacy (as an argument) would. One cannot use the same argument because of the vast differences between SSM and polygamy.

    The number of people marrying and divorcing remains the same, so there wouldn't be an increase in any of those.

    The only argument that I've seen against SSM is that it's non-traditional. If a person feels that that doesn't matter, it only makes sense to allow other forms of non-traditional marriage if that's the only reason for the opposition. Unless you can show some other reason to oppose polygamy, I don't see why the two issues need to be segregated.

    The reason they are separate issues is because they are not the same issue. To simplify it way down: is 2 the same thing as more than 2? If the answer is no, then they are not the same thing. Just as liberalism, conservatism and libertarianism are all political ideologies, you cannot call them all the same idea, so too while SSM, mixed sex marriage and polygamy are all types of marriage, they are not the same as each other.

    No one is saying that they're the same issue, but some things are analagous and it's wrong to apply logic selectively.

    They are not analogous though. They have different personal, social and psychological effects as one very important example.

    It's perfectly fine for you to bring that up, but you made it sound like two issues should never be discussed in the same thread.

    Please tell us about these personal, social and psychological effects.
