    You're gona have to go to the Loft if you're looking for a clean logical argument about anything.

    The libertarian argument for polygamy is that the state should have no place in any marriage.

    Marriage is a societal norm. The marriage license is simply that -- a government license. And licenses are always arbitrary and by their nature can always be redefined. Everything is fair game with a license--the license itself is what opens a can of worms, not gay marriage in particular.

    I just don't understand why someone would NOT support an adult's decision when it comes to personal matters such as who he or she marries. You said it's not due to religious beliefs, so why?

    I agree, but SSM is being used as the church key (you need to be old enough understand) to do so...

    Because the State has seen fit to sanction the act and bestow benefits. If it were simply between individual adults, they can do what they want, and I don't really care...

    Aren't YOU married and getting those same benefits? Why do you want to deny them to others?
