Well Pal, I don't know who Ms Grundy is and you best refrain from calling me an idiot.

Now, you say that you would error on the side of freedom..........is that with all things or just sexual perversion that provides the odor and contact with human feces. Oh never mind dear smart one.... the answer is obvious!

Do try to keep up. The topic is polygamy, not gay marriage. Marriage itself is a RELIGIOUS institution and therefore should remain in the realm of your individual religious beliefs. Secular government should STAY secular. Think of the Taliban coming coming to power in the US and you should be able to see why that is a good idea.

Don't confuse lack of religion in government, for the perverted excising of all religion from public life. That has got to stop as well.

Ms. Grundy was a Robert Heinlein character who thought she was so morally superior to her neighbors that she felt she was perfectly justified peaking in windows to make sure everyone in her neighborhood was living a moral life by her paranoid delusional fanatic standards.

If you have problems with people who engage in certain behaviors that you find distasteful or immoral, but that do not directly infringe on your Right to action, then do not have any dealings with them. Ostracize them. Ignore them. Kick them out of your establishments or fire them if they are in your employ. As a business owner, you should have the Right no matter what the San Francisco crowd have perverted "PRIVATE business" to mean. Voluntary association still has its advocates among the Free Marketeers club.

However, if they aren't hurting you, do not get the government to step in and play Nanny. Do not get the police to go put a gun to their heads because they are doing things you find "icky" or because they have too many spouses. To do so makes you no better than any other socialist dictatorship.

If you stop making stupid assumptions based off of your preconceived self-righteous notions, you will have left the realm of "idiocy". Or are you moral enough to start casting first stones? I know I'm not.

Boring. Year after year. Same old arguments. Same old narrow minded crap. Pretty much why I haven't bothered with too many of these threads lately. Later kids... play nice.
