If you can find a poodle that can say "I do," then we can talk about it. And kids, while they might be capable of saying it, are not allowed to give consent, nor will they EVER be in this country. We believe in protecting our children. As for having four wives, some Americans do that already, but we call it adultery.

You are delusional if you think polygamy will ever be legal in this country. Do you think courts or legistlators would ever allow four wives instead of one to collect Social Security survivors benefits when a man dies? Do you think the military will ever grant a death benefit to more than one wife of a dead soldier? It IS the legal issues that would be at stake, because we've already seen that the law can't intrude on a person's polygamist religious beliefs.

I'm not sure what that court was thinking in granting parental rights to three parents.No adoption can take place if a natural father does not surrender his parental rights. This is indeed a weird ruling.

"As for having four wives, some Americans do that already, but we call it adultery."

A court has just granted the right for a child to have THREE parents listed on his birth certificate. Homosexual "parents" are always claiming that they include another adult of the missing gender in the family to model for what the child is missing.

Aren't these all no-so-subtle precursors of polygamy?

And those bullies and gay-bashers are not born that way -- they get it from YOU. They learn to disrespect the sissy kids and tomboy girls because they learned it at home.

It needs to stop. And no anti-bullying program in the schools has any chance of being successful until we acknowledge that gay kids are most often the ones being bullied, starting in middle school. That's why kids need to learn the real truth about homosexuality -- not what they learn in the home or from the pulpit. And it should start in kindergarten.

By FAR the majority of victimized children are abused by a presumably heterosexual parent or other close relative, not by adoptive gay parents. Gays are no more likely to be abusers than straight people.

In schools, children need to learn about real-life relationships, and that doesn't mean teaching about sex any more than the Cinderella story is about sex. Teaching that some boys like boys and some girls like girls does not require a sexually oriented discussion, and it should come as naturally as teaching them to tie their shoes.

If you try to "protect" kids by NOT teaching them about such relationships, they often become bullies and gay-bashers who have no respect for their "sissy" classmates.

If the 'gay' community seriously believed in protecting children, they wouldn't be allowed to adopt in the first place. Additionally, there shouldn't be any school indoctrination of children that preys upon their innocence to recruit through desensitization. Children need to be learning to read, write, etc. and being kids, not sex objects; there's plenty of time for children to learn about adult behaviors as they get closer to adulthood.

Those who remember the old version of the SAT might recall the analogy section: “This is to that as that is to this.”

The SAT no longer requires students to demonstrate aptitude in reasoning through this vital cognitive exercise—unfortunate because so many Americans find it difficult to recognize false analogies. And no group has exploited this deficiency more than politicians.

Adam Cohen observed in a 2005 New York Times piece: “Intentionally misleading comparisons are becoming the dominant mode of public discourse....
