Sounds like a Pence recommendation.

Bestiality? Is this another Shuriff Dave thread?

Anyone who's surprised at this hasn't been paying attention.

Sounds like a perfect Trump-era nominee. For all the talk we give of him having brain-rot, there is clearly a coherent theme in his appointments.

More of the shameless pandering to the stupid, bigoted, narrow-minded thick heads that live in the rural areas.

Trumps base-greedy millionaires and sub-70-IQ people.

With the way the law's moving now

I will soon be able to marry a cow

or a horse or even a beagle

even marriage to children will be legal

I believe all this because I have spent

my entire life not learning the term "legal consent"

He continued, "I mean, it's disgusting. I've learned words I didn't know. I mean, other than...my assistants here, have you ever heard the word 'throuple'?'Throuple' so that's three people coming together of different sexes, maybe mixed sexes. Them coming together. There are people who marry themselves. Somebody wanted to marry a tree. People marrying their pets. It's just like - you know, you read the New Testament and you read about all the things and you think, 'Oh, that's not going on in our community.' Oh yes it is. We're back to that time where debauchery rules."

If memory serves, the Koran supports up to 4 wives and no more.  It's been a while since I've read it though.

Well, he did say that he would protect the LGBT community from Muslim attackers after Orlando, right? Has any Muslim in the US shot up a gay bar since? And, at least for the T portion of LGBT, Caitlyn supports Trump and since Caitlyn represents the entire transgender population, he's got a 100% approval rating from them. Bada book, bada boom.

Polygamy is awesome.

That's all.

Oh, and every new Trump headline makes me just wanna scream as loud as possible in frustration.

How is that even possible? America was destroyed by gay marriage back in 2015. Christianity is illegal, too, why isn't this guy in jail?

This is why I stayed holed up in "Fortress Bay Area". Yes, coastal elite librul in a blue bubble, but at least I have civil rights protections at the state level here.

It's almost as if American Protestantism is mostly just a system designed to allow evil people to rationalize their beliefs and behaviour as "good".

Why couldn't four 4 people wanna get married? Why not one man and three women? Or three women and one man?

Or one man and one woman and two more women? Or two men and three women, but one of the men doesn't show up at the wedding and they go ahead with it anyway?

Depends on who you ask.  According to some, Satan is just the anti-Christian, standing against views that Christians hold dear that are hateful towards the pagans and were not actually believed by Jesus.  One such thing is treating queerfolk as human, no matter who they love.  Another is saying that poligamy and polyandry are perfectly fine if everyone is consenting.

There's are Muslim religious scholars that suggest the number is actually 1 because you have to treat 2-4 wives equally and that's an impossibility.

Here's a legal question.  Wouldn't the contract law surrounding a wedding with more than 2 people be prohibitively complicated?  Sure, polygamy works where one gender is essentially property, but in a society where everyone is (theoretically, at least) equal, a polygamous divorce would make a regular acrimonious divorce look cheap and simple.
 
2017-09-21 10:18:35 AM  
I've had a bit of trouble understanding why beastiality always seems to crop up when morality and sexuality intersect in conversation with these types

Nevertheless, I've always told myself silently while enduring said god-botherers that it's a reminder to intelligent society of how much they love farking that chicken

Poor hen will never escape their clutches

Since marriage is a civil contract, if we could update the contract language to allow for more than two participants, I see no issue. Nothing wrong with polyamory. Hell, corporations are legal "people" made up of many shareholders, so it's at least theoretically possible to have a legal union of more than two people.

But I don't think it'll ever happen

A famous case from less than a century ago.  Right here in PA.

I also found a disturbing case of Angolan immigrants in London torturing a 6 year old until she confessed to sorcery.

Belief in superstition is the single most destructive aspect of the human condition.

In a pair of 2015 speeches, President Donald Trump's nominee for a federal judgeship in Texas described transgender children as evidence of "Satan's plan," lamented that states were banning conversion therapy and argued that sanctioning same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy and bestiality.
Jeff Mateer, the current first assistant attorney general of Texas, was serving at the time as general counsel of the First Liberty Institute, a religious liberty advocacy group known before 2016 as the Liberty Institute. He faced criticism from LGBT rights groups for his work with the organization, such as opposing the expansion of nondiscrimination protections to LGBT people in the city of Plano. If confirmed by the US Senate, he will serve on the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
In a May 2015 speech, titled "The Church and Homosexuality," Mateer discussed a Colorado lawsuit in which the parents of a transgender girl sued her school for preventing her from using the bathroom of her choice.
"In Colorado, a public school has been sued because a first grader and I forget the sex, she's a girl who thinks she's a boy or a boy who thinks she's a girl, it's probably that, a boy who thinks she's a girl," Mateer said in a video posted on Vimeo in 2015 and reviewed by CNN's KFile. "And the school said, 'Well, she's not using the girl's restroom.' And so she has now sued to have a right to go in. Now, I submit to you, a parent of three children who are now young adults, a first grader really knows what their sexual identity? I mean it just really shows you how Satan's plan is working and the destruction that's going on."
