<<I'd be perfectly glad to join with Angel May in postponing gay marriage rights until the right to polygamy is established at the same time.

When polygamists demand the same rights, go for it. I'll be right there with you.

Until then, sit down, you're just making noises to be annoying. Kinda like a four year old.



Well polygamists have been demanding that right for 150 years or so now in the United States, and a good many have died over the issue.

But of course I was illustrating the futility of Angel May's all or nothing political views. Some times compromise and settling for half a loaf is a good political strategy, other times it is not.

It's abundantly clear that gay rights groups have settled for half a loaf many times while advancing their issues and agendas on various issues, and that's been a smart strategy. Angel May Puritanist unwillingness to compromise is a formula for defeat, not reform. That being the case, I applaud her unwillingness to compromise.
