    I guess the next step is polygamous marriage?

    Father don't you think things like unfaithfulness and not abiding by vows ruins the sanctuary of marriage and not the fact that two people of the same sex want to have that union?

    Who is anyone to deny them that right? Do you also take issue with people not having a religious ceremony in a church?

    Sorry. I do not see the connection with polygamous marriage in your questions.

    What's your point? I assume you mean that if we can re-define marriage to mean a same sex couple we can re-define to mean polygamous marriages? I guess at some point in the future if there is enough social pressure and need and there has been robust discussion as well as being equal for all (ie, woman can have many husbands or wives and wives can have as many husbands or wives) as well as security to leave if desired then quite possibly. We are, after all, living in a democracy. Society changes, all societies develop and progress (with a few extreme exemptions), it's a fact of life.

    If you don't want to marry a man that's fine, no ones forcing you but why do you want to prevent someone else from marrying the person they love? What right do you have to do that? It doesn't affect you and no one is being harmed so I don't understand what right you think you have to stand in the way?

    Sorry I should have quoted your earlier posts. But again I ask the same questions.

    I don't think it is anymore. I think Utah was the last state that allowed it but I'm pretty sure it's illegal (as in technically illegal) but still practiced but some Church of LDS and some Muslims.

    Last time I checked, I wasn't the federal parliament. I don't have the right.
    I do, however, have the right to vote for what I believe is right. As you correctly say, "we are, after all, living in a democracy". Are you saying that I am not entitled to an opinion?

    Answers:
    1. Both
    2. The law made by the parliament. Who is voted in by the people.
    3. No. It is according to the law.
