"Next stop, I want to marry my horse? An 8 year old?
Certainly can't argue against polygamy anymore."

Seriously, David, that is one horse-sh*t argument. Do you think that marrying an animal or pedophilia are morally equivalent to marrying a person who is the same sex as you. Do you really?

If you do, you should seek help. If you don't, why do you bother wasting others time with such tripe?

Polygamous marriage, if made legally equivalent to monogamous marriage in terms of federal law, would give the advantage of marriage to more partners than is available in a normal union. Singles would then enter polygamous unions merely to get a tax benefit. Do you really want that?

Obamacare will save me? And you try to call me mentally handicapped?

I know today's decisions are hard for you to grasp. Fear not, your suffering has not been overlooked. There is promise you will receive treatment for your mental handicaps under Obamacare.
