hinten: What does "marrying three wives" have to do with "marrying two adults"?
Why is this being brought up now?


Because TEH GAYS.

Shaggy_C: Marriage is discriminatory in general and the government should not recognize it all. Why we should be giving tax breaks and other benefits to people to going through some silly ritual from thousands of years ago is beyond me.


Don't worry, it'll become obvious to you when you start to fill out the visa paperwork for your Russian bride.

The author of the article wants to know the impact of this policy on bisexual men. He really, really wants to know the impact. He really, really, really wants to know. Because as long as he can claim to be bisexual, he isn't really gay.

Aldon: Change "children" to "heirs" if that helps you.


Helps me what? It certainly doesn't make that distinction any more logical.


At one time giving women equal rights changed laws and marriage just as radically as plural marriage would. It wasn't a good enough reason to discriminate then nor is it now.


Not really, since the biggest change was women being granted rights that men already had. There wasn't anything new being created, as would be necessary for plural marriages to be recognized.

tony41454: No one has a "right" guaranteed by the Constitution to get married. No one. You have the right to the "pursuit" of happiness, though it's no guarantee you'll find it. There are a lot of reasons people can't get married legally. Do we want a country where it's a "right" that someone can marry their sister? Men DON'T marry men. It against Mother nature.

Homosexuality has been observed in over 1500 animal species and is well-documented in over 500 of them. Are all of those species acting in defiance of Mother Nature?


Must I point out the obvious? We are not animals. Animals also mate with their own siblings, eat their young, etc. Animals have no moral code. People do. Therefore we are held to a higher standard by God (and our fellow humans).

Marriage itself is against Mother Nature. I don't see animals throwing weddings or signing contracts. There are plenty of species who have homosexual activities and relations, though, from great apes to fruit flies.

Technically, though, nothing that occurs is "unnatural". If it was unnatural, it wouldn't happen/exist in the first place. Like it or not, humans are animals and part of nature.

Sorry, Charlie, your God/creationist/"Humans are better because we think we're special" doesn't apply. Humans are simply one species among millions inhabiting this planet. We happened to evolve intelligence as our means of survival, and because of it we gained the ability to think abstractly (not unique, several other animals have shown that ability too) and to shape the materials around us to an amazing degree (also not unique, many animals and insects make and use tools and shape their world).

Animals are not "lesser" than us. Humans are not a magic "superior" species. We are as mortal as all other life, and far more frail than a majority of it. That air of arrogance is our biggest weakness, which causes things like bigotry, discrimination, and hate. If you really want to get down to it, humans are inferior to other animals because of it.

Traditionally heirs were a product of a marriage...that aspect of marriage remains pretty consistent throughout history. Look it up.

What laws need to be created for a plural marriage? Laws just need to be redefined or amended just like with gay marriage or when women gained equal rights.

Frankly going for only one party of a marriage having unique rights to both having equal rights was a more radical change than going from a two person contract to a multi person contract.

Aldon: Traditionally heirs were a product of a marriage...that aspect of marriage remains pretty consistent throughout history. Look it up.


What exactly do you mean by "heir"? If it's the legal definition that has been in place for a while now, you'll be glad to know that gay people can have heirs too. In fact, you can have heirs without ever having been married at all.


What laws need to be created for a plural marriage? Laws just need to be redefined or amended just like with gay marriage or when women gained equal rights.


In the case of gender equality and marriage equality, all that changed was that certain people (who were until then denied rights) were then granted rights that others actually enjoyed. The rights were already there; new ones did not need to be invented. A proclamation along the lines of "Gay marriages are now legal and enjoy the same privileges as heterosexual marriage" is all it would take to get from here to there.

You can't do that with plural marriage, because there are rights, benefits and privileges associated with marriage as we know it that just cannot translate into plural marriage without being re-written. Which is why an analogous "Polygamy is now legal and enjoys the same etc. etc. as regular marriage" won't work, because it would be meaningless without the host of revisions that would have to accompany it.

It's pretty simple to understand. Legalizing interracial and same-sex marriage allowed a group of people to enjoy a number of clearly defined rights that others had already been enjoying. Legalizing polygamy will necessitate a revised set of rights before it can be done. If you think that making those revisions is worth it, good for you. But you can make that case, I'm sure, without resorting to blatantly incorrect statements like "the distinctions [between gay and straight marriage] are as meaningful as the distinctions between plural and traditional marriage"

Yes, we are special because God made us in His image DOES apply. We have a moral agency and animals do not. That's why some of us discriminate and hate and sin. We have the choice to be bad or good. Animals do what they're programmed to do from the womb. It's called instinct. Man, on the other hand, learns his behavior as he grows. I'm glad that you decide to go around humping chair legs just to try to prove a point, but I think I will "choose" not to do that behavior. THAT'S the difference between man and animals. We have a choice. We have morals. We choose to commit sin. Animals just do what their instincts tell them. Like I said, if you want to lump yourself into the "lower" forms of life--worms, chickens, amoebas--then be my guest, but it's your "choice" to do so (which makes you uniquely human) and not driven by basic instinct.

We have a moral agency and animals do not.

The fact that we are animals who are sometimes homosexual really doesn't bother me. Why do you freak out about it?

We have the choice to be bad or good.

Yeah, you're right. We have the choice to realize that homosexuality is a normal process found in human beings and in other animals and we realize the smart thing is to not be a bigoted ass about it.

Animals just do what their instincts tell them.

Because being a homophobic bigot is morally superior to an animal instinct to accept homosexuality as normal behavior.

How do you justify that one?

Thoguh: This is basically the one case where I think the "slipperly slope" isn't so slippery. If the government doesn't have the right to tell you you can only marry someone of the opposite gender, why do they have the right to tell you that a marriage can only be between two consenting adults? If three consenting adults are all in love with each other and want to spend their lives together then why does the government have a right to define "marriage" in a way that excludes their love? Once you've decided the government can't define marriage why do only certain types of marriage between consenting adults remain allowed?


This is the only rational argument FOR polygamy not being illegal.

The only rational arguments AGAINST polygamy under the circumstances you describe have to do with public policy re who gets what in cases of divorce or intestate succession.

Honesty I think it's ridiculous for the government to recognize marriage. It's a personal vow, not something that should be subject to government social engineering through the tax code and state/federal law. While I think there should be equal recognition under the law, ultimately the law should not bother recognizing a damn thing on who I (or you) marry.

Let the courts and civil agreements on the passing of assets work. If people can sign forms to declare marriage for the government, they can sign pre-nups, wills and other private marital agreements that become legally binding in court.

Are we talking about the same God who created us without the knowledge of morality, then put the one thing he didn't want us to touch right smack in the middle of the garden, did a piss-poor job of keeping out Satan/the serpent, and became so angry when Adam and Eve ate a few figs and became intelligent that he cursed the entire universe to teach us a long and painful lesson? The same God who later grew so emo about a few thousand humans not doing what he wanted that he decided to destroy everything and was only swayed because one guy still liked him? The same God who repeatedly dicked with Pharaoh so he could heap more and more horrors on him and his country? The same God who demanded an old man who already followed him loyally to sacrifice his only son as a test of faith? The same God who completely destroyed Job's life because of a bet he made with Satan? The same God who slaughtered a bunch of children for calling a guy "baldy"? The same God who annihilated two cities for the crime of enjoying life?

Article shows a real lack of understanding of bisexuality. For bisexuals, the gender of a partner isn't #1 on the list of requirements. In some cases, gender doesn't even factor in at all. Bisexuals are attracted to a person rather than to a gender.

If a bisexual person is in a monogamous relationship with a life partner, it really isn't any different than a homosexual or heterosexual life partner commitment.

Being attracted to both sexes does not equal promiscuous sex fiend OR an inability to commit to one partner.

At least know what you are talking about when you are hating on bisexuals, please.

Ah yes, I forgot about that. So instead of just waving his hand and ridding us of the "original sin" (because intelligent is truly the most evil thing ever), the all-powerful, all-loving God sends a piece of himself down to Earth to live for a few years and then be brutally killed so that it can cleanse us of the sins that God inflicted upon us in the first place, which didn't do jack-all anyways.

The same God who later grew so emo about a few thousand humans not doing what he wanted that he decided to destroy everything and was only swayed because one guy still liked him? The same God who repeatedly dicked with Pharaoh so he could heap more and more horrors on him and his country? The same God who demanded an old man who already followed him loyally to sacrifice his only son as a test of faith? The same God who completely destroyed Job's life because of a bet he made with Satan? The same God who slaughtered a bunch of children for calling a guy "baldy"? The same God who annihilated two cities for the crime of enjoying life?

Those sound far more like things humans would do. Which makes sense, as man created God in his own image, along with the hundreds of thousands of other deities throughout recorded history.

Yes, it's the same God that sent His own Son to die for us as a sacrifice for our sins, so that He (Jesus) would suffer the penalty for our behavior in turning away from God. So that now anyone who confesses with his mouth Jesus as Lord and believes in his heart that God raised Him from the dead, shall be saved. Yes, that God.

Ah yes, I forgot about that. So instead of just waving his hand and ridding us of the "original sin" (because intelligent is truly the most evil thing ever), the all-powerful, all-loving God sends a piece of himself down to Earth to live for a few years and then ...

Waldo Pepper: simplicimus: Waldo Pepper: Repo Man: so does the scotus agree that we are no better than animals or are humans defined differently ?

Supreme Court rulings have no bearing on biology.

so then man can marry a llama?

I doubt a llama understands the contractual and contextual implications of marriage, and so, unable to give consent, no.

doesn't have to understand, paw print on the license is pretty much all that is needed to get married.

there is no test to get married. besides my beautiful llama is really smart


Both my marriages required proof of something beforehand, citizenship, residency, affidavits that I had no other concurrent marriages at the time. My dogs are really smart, and probably gay, but I don't want to marry them.

Fair enough question. What happened before humans appeared, and the thousands of years before we started recording things, is unknowable.

Not quite. Using fossils, the rocks the fossils were in, the samples of air and chemicals in the rocks, the rings of fossil and still-living trees, and the behaviors and habits of the existing animals, we can deduce and guess with varying amounts of certainty how animals lived and behaved in the past. Us not being there to see it doesn't mean it didn't happen.

And honestly, thinking that our mere appearance suddenly turned everything gay is quite an arrogant assumption.

Wrong. Humans found the dodo inedible because of the high oil content of their flesh, plus they were strong and ornery birds. They were wiped out by the rats, pigs, and cats that escaped from the ships/the sailors let loose, which destroyed their eggs and young.

What a strange assumption. Homosexual behavior is in our recorded history, generally as part of the mix of sexuality. Ancient Greeks and Romans were bi-sexual and pederasts. Prison homosexuality doesn't count as homosexual activity. What's different is the current perception of homosexual activities, and the societal demand that a person be either/or.

why does prison homosexuality not count? not being able to control ones sexual desire is not an excuse to go where no man should go.

That was meant for the "homosexuality didn't exist until humans showed up" part. It has been humans ever since we started recording history, which has been for many thousands of years. Extrapolating from that, it's been part of the natural world for far longer. It's also, for humans, been through a lot of ups and downs where it was everything from a normal part of life to a horrible pox upon creation. Not unlike the roller coaster that domestic cats have been through, revered as gods one era and slaughtered as demons in another.

What's funny is that, for both cats and homos, the downs have always been caused by religion.

My prison reference is that what happens happens in prison doesn't seem to count (to the prisoners) as being gay.
Me, I'm not gay and I can't say I understand the attraction. But I can not decree that what I don't understand is not normal for other people. Just as some people would not understand my monogamy as normal behavior.
