Even if we put the Bible aside there still a fundamental question. The Courts in California are reviewing Prop 8 that past by the voters of the state, stating the marriage should be between a man and a woman. If the vote of the people is found to be unconstitutional then why is it constitutional to ban polygamy? Not that I feel that polygamy is right but the argumen.........t sounds the same to me, you know as long as they love each other and they are consenting adults. With out the Bible we could say that there are various forms of alternative marriages
I have read a lot of comments stating that to be against gay marriage stems from prejudice and bigotry. Are all of those who are in favor of gay marriage willing to support other type of untraditional marriages such as parent marrying his or her own adult child? - Or even a parent marrying a minor child, two siblings marrying each other, polygamy? Or is it only prejudice when it comes to gay marriage? Are you willing to support and fight just as hard for all those alternatives to traditional marriages? I wonder if the Mayor of San Diego would be more open If some one in his own family wanted to marry him or If they wanted more than one spouse. Would he willing with tears to publicly support and testify for change in the law?
