    Draw a firm line at consenting adults. That will be more than sufficient.

    People do a lot of bad things for a lot of reasons. Some use religion as an excuse to do bad things. For most religions, that is a bastardization of the tenets of the religion. No, Jeffs was not a good man, and not doing God's work. But he claimed he was.

    Even a blind dog finds a bone now and then.

    You're absolutely correct! That is why this isn't a federal issue and the fed needs to stay out and let the people of the states decide.

    Yes. They both support personal freedom without religious prejudice.

    All? You're comfortable with generalizations like that?

    Do heterosexuals ever engage in a deadly lifestyle? Do they all.

    I don't endorse the lifestyle. Who here is endorsing the lifestyle?

    While we're on the topic, exactly what is the lifestyle?

    IMHO some healthy families are manufacturing gays.

    Take these two twin brothers I know. One grew up to be perfectly well-adjusted and hetero. The other brother's loafers never touch the ground.

    What do the laws in their state say?

    Wrong. As to RP... he is a zero. What he thinks is irrelevant. As to JB, he is a deokrat. When he opens his mouth out come lies. If he thought it would get him votes, he'd come out and support muslim law as the new norm. He gets behind homos because he doesn't want them behind him. He just wants their votes.

    As usual, we agree.:faint:

    I hope it's on every ballot in every state this November.

    I was asking for a citation from the Christian scriptures to support this, your example is a Mormon, who most orthodox Christians consider a cult.

    So we should legalize prostitution? Polygamy?

    Why not? What's wrong with either of those?

    Granted I wouldn't want to be married to more than one nagging woman, but still it's practiced in other cultures and was acceptable in the earlier days of ancient Hebrew mythology.

    Why any man would want to deal with two wives is beyond me, and prostitution is often a trap, where people are forced into it, I'd have some reservations.....

    But I see no reason for me to interfere with what freely consenting adults wish to do in their relationships.

    I am only one person, and other than posting here, which has no effect on current laws, I don't feel strongly enough one way or the other to take the effort to change things.

    I don't get a lot of nagging, but as wonderful a catch as I am, I would expect that there would be significant jealousy issues and competition for my "affection" time.

    [/sarcasm]

    I do think that being committed to a single person, forsaking all others in that way, is the way to go if you want a happy and lasting partnership. If women are a commodity, that would be different, but I prefer an equal, not a subordinate.

    OK, and as the Constitution is silent on those things, it is up to the people and their representatives, the same as gay marriage.

    My point was that we don't allow everything consenting adults want to do. Drugs would be another thing.

    :whistling: I'd explain it, but can't think of a way to do it without it sounding like bragging. Knowledge of anatomy is a special skill.

    The founding fathers were normal men. They wrote the COTUS for normal people. There is no oblgation for normal men to accommodate abnormal degenerates. If a judge is so stupid as to rule otherwise, then one just ignores the little man/woman in the black robe. And if the little man squatting in the white house doesn't like it, and if he wants to play army fine. He hasn't so far demonstrated any ability to do anything at all except make promises and excuses.

    Sometimes Biden just amazes me. Don't think I've ever witnessed such an inept man in such a high office. Well there are a couple exceptions at higher level.
