    Uhm, the only wounds that needed healing are healed, the wounds of people who didn't have the same rights as heterosexuals. The bigots against equal rights have no wounds, just ignorant righteousness. I believe that this thread addresses that ignorance that they/you are so erroneously righteous about.

    Thanks for being a perfect example of what I posted.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Anyone imagining that heterosexuals who are against SSM have suffered wounds of any kind, imagine them only for the sake of taking on the mantle of victimhood. There's no other valid reason. Allowing blacks and whites to marry didn't diminish same ethnicity marriages or the religions of people against interracial marriage, just as SSM won't.

    Let me make up an example to see if I understand what you are saying, and I'm going to using other DP members just for example's sake. I could be married to you, and you are married to DA60 And Chromium. I am not married to either of them. Summerwind is married to DA60, but no one else. Chromium is also married to Agent J and Captain Courtesy, whom are married to each other as well, but not you. You are saying that is polygamy but not a group marriage, correct?

    I see that as polygamy yes. Although I do realize that group marriage is a form of polygamy, I believe the most popular examples of polygamy we see are those where someone has more than one spouse, rather than being involved in an actual group marriage, where everyone has responsibility toward/for everyone else in some way. There is a reason to distinguish between the two types as well because there are actually fewer problems with the group marriage thing than what I see as polygamy but what I am viewing as polygamy is what would happen in reality if we were to simply strike down or repeal marriage laws that restricted number of spouses without some pretty quick changes to the laws in regards to marriage. Since the SCOTUS could not actually make any laws, it is likely that we would simply see people with multiple marriage licenses, rather than a single marriage license with multiple names on it.

    Ok so once again to make sure I am understanding you. You are alright with group polygamy, but not with chained polygamy which is what my example was closest to, correct?

    Actually, I don't really mind either, so long as we ensure that they have as little impact on society, the rights and wellbeing of the spouses and children, and, yes, even our public coffers as we can manage. Group marriages just helps to protect spouses, especially existing spouses, more than simply allowing polygamy does because it ensures that spouses know about each other. While this can be done by simply requiring permission from a current spouse to enter into another marriage, this is harder to enforce effectively, especially across state lines and could lead to a serious debate on privacy individual spouses retain within their marriages, from their spouses, when it comes to legal matters.
