    Ha! So sadly ridiculous, but still funny.
    This whole thing should serve as an instructive example to Christians that no matter what your beliefs, its better to argue your case with reason rather than resorting to the Bible for justification.
    The Bible puts them in the same boat with Mormon fundamentalists, Muslims, and these silly characters, if they actually knew what was in it.
    Better the argument that marriage at the stage it has developed to at this point is the best arrangement for the raising of children, which should be the priority, as you’ve pointed out. It arrived where it is now for that very good reason, not because of some outdated religious decree, and shouldn’t be tampered with by the courts.

      What are you calling codswallop, Frank? The likelihood that polygamy will be legalized sooner or later?

      • Frank

        Marriage is a legal contract currently allowed between two consenting adults. What I’m calling codswallop is the cartoon that is obviously fear mongering. As far as polygamy goes I don’t give a rodent’s rump if it does become legalized as long as the parties involved are all adults. If a man has the patience to put up with two nagging wives more power to him. [sorry I couldn’t resist adding a little humor] I really don’t see the problem with letting people enter into whatever legal contracts they desire. How does someone else’s marriage contract affect me or my marriage? I’ll answer my own question – it doesn’t at all.

          I agree with you about consenting adults, Frank. And I’m glad you added a little humor, because we posted the cartoon only to do just that.

          I really wouldn’t care what consenting adults do, either, but marriage inevitably involves children, and they are the ones who suffer the consequences.
