Anonymous asked: Do you think polygamy should be illegal?
I actually don’t have an opinion on this. I mean people enter in to polygamous relationships all the time; but as far as polygamy when it comes to marriage… it usually only happens in certain religious groups and I don’t like any of the major or minor world religions. So I don’t really have an opinion one way or the other; people are gonna do what they’re gonna do, who’m I to stop them, though it does make the whole marriage thing complicated.
bodhioshea asked: Why do you think government should be involved in anyone's marriage- straight, gay, or otherwise? Why is it appropriate for states to get involved in any voluntary personal relationships? It seems to me that what ruins the sanctity of marriage is government issued marriage licenses. Instead of begging for the equal right of gays to be married, ought we not be asking the state to stop licensing and regulating straight marriage?
I’m not quite sure what you’re trying to say; are you saying we outlaw marriage outright?
The government issues marriage licenses for property. If someone marries several people from different states, and we didn’t have the state to issue marriage licenses, who does said person’s property go to when they die, especially if they don’t have a will (which many people don’t)? States issue marriage licenses so they can check with other state databases to make sure everyone only marries 1 person (or several, after several divorces).
Now it’s wishful thinking to just do away with all laws pertaining to marriage and just let everybody get married. But that’s the same as saying let’s get rid of the minimum wage and pay people what they deserve or lets get rid of regulations because people and businesses should regulate themselves. If humans were less human-y and more Vulcan-like, then this would work; but humans aren’t Vulcan-like and they’re prone to things like greed, pride and gluttony.

Two Ebola Conspiracy Theories
1) Ebola-stricken ISIS members are conspiring with Mexican drug cartels and being smuggled by human traffickers in to the United States as we speak!
2) Ebola is not actually as bad as the lame-stream media claims, they just want to scare us to increase Obamacare enrollment
dundundun *ominous music* What’s your opinion on these theories?
