My post on polygamy takes an individual/family/society benefit position, not an equality position, so the discrimination argument has nothing to do with what I presented.
    Well sure just like a diet rich in purines (shellfish) and fraud (mixed fabrics) have nothing to do with sodomy. But people will keep bringing these things up. We'll just have to live with it I suppose.

    You must be a very fragile person if you think someone else's union harms you in any way.

    No, they're union can only benefit me.

    Their divorce is what harms me. High-risk couples who think they're in love and ignore other dysfunctions which lead to their divorce. When children are involved (which is the only time I give a crap about who you marry) your divorce contributes to the juvenile crime, teen pregnancy and drop-out rates. Those things harm me, they harm you.

    Pro-SSM challange Anti-SSM with other things scripture forbids.

    Anti-SSM challanges pro-SSM with other forms of marriage which logicaly should be protected.

    Both sides do this for the same reson: to test the consistancy and integrity of the other side's argument.

    Like this example:

The prohibition on homosexuality is significantly less explicit than the scriptures referring to the two previous 'sins', so why is homosexuality such a big deal? Clearly you do not view many scriptural sins as sins. Why the pick'n'choose attitude?
    It's an integrity check; a valid debate tactic.
