In fact, a polygamist would vote no on 8 knowing that a narrow definition of marriage would further restrict his chosen lifestyle.

Chosen lifestyle?

You might have just answered your own question (re same-sex marriage vs polygamy), as factors such as race and sexual orientation aren't "chosen lifestyles."


In a thread this long it's easy to miss the message of a poster such as Rusty who apparently thinks his sophistry is pretty clever stuff.... he did suggest, illogically, that he won't vote Yes/8 until someone can prove how an irrelevant issue is relevant, and that can't be done.

In Rusty's defense, "chosen lifestyle" does, in fact refer to polygamy. Rusty understands that for many people sexual orientation is no more a choice than is race.
