There is do doubt the door to Polygamy will be swung WIDE open if the Feds stick their laws overtop of State laws.


So what? Everyone in the circle made their decision. You choose to marry someone who already has 13 spouses? Great I'm happy for you! You love your cousin that much? Super! Our lives are short enough, government shouldn`t be encouraging anyone to marry in accordance to society`s "morals" or "standards".

Once science proves that incorrect, then I'll change my FB profile pic to a red background with tow pieces of bacon on it and support gay marriage.


Straight couples do not need a "privilege" by the state to be married. Your procreation argument doesn`t hold either considering that it`s possible to have children without marriage, and we also let infertile people marry. Government has no business preferring some people`s relationships (or lifestyle choices for that matter) over others.

"But sorry, it ain't equal! Sorry, it just ain`t!"

Are apples and oranges equal? Of course they are. They are both fruit, both good for you. But they are different. Just as a man/woman marriage and a man/man marriage are different yet still equal.

The major difference is I don`t have to put up with Premenstrual, Post menstrual nor Menstrual.

@ papajon0s1 - okay. So by your "procreation" qualification then all straight couples who can't or don`t want children are not valid marriages. And women past child bearing years could get married period.

Tell me, were you born this stupid or did you have to study?

Whatever! I'm sorry but my argument still goes no further than procreation. You are asking for an equal right for something that is clearly not equal. Let me put it this way. One penis and One vagina, two penises, and two vaginas, are clearly three different things. Last I checked you still needed a male and female to have a child. Therefore, procreation is my basis for marriage. Once science proves that incorrect, then I`ll change my FB profile pic to a red background with tow pieces of bacon on it and support gay marriage.

That said, I support anyone`s right to live as best they see fit for them. As Catholic, I guarantee you that you will find no better more welcoming and compassionate people who would be willing to go to extraordinary steps for you.

But sorry, it ain`t equal! Sorry, it just ain`t!
