    I was going to suggest that any discussion of polygamy fits the category of a slippery slope argument, but any time I start thinking about slippery slopes my mind starts to wander into other realms and I lose my train of thought.

    I think straight people should trade marriage rights to the gays. In return, we get.........

    In favor? Yes but going further, the state shoudlnt be involved in marriage at all. Its time to nuke all the benefits associated with it, people shouldnt need the permission of the state to exercise freedom of association.

    I believe that their shouldn't be a law for or against marriage! The constitution does not give a description of marriage, so marry whoever you want.

    Aw, what's the use? Arguing logic and history with you won't change your mind.

    Are you a judge? Seems like they're the ones who are making the decision about what marriage is.

    Gay marriage should not be a right.

    Then again, neither should straight marriage.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
