Re: Homosexuals and polygamy
Err, didn't he say he would vote against same-sex marriage? So what? If a civil union gives the same benefits (taxation, child care, I don't know, do I), in absolutely every way, then the only thing he's voting against is that they get to use the arbitrary and silly word "marriage". Sure, you want what you can't have, and it probably sucks to be denied anything based on something as trivial as sexual orientation. But the kind of marriage he, in this case, is against them having is one reserved his superstitious beliefs, and I can't see why homosexuals want respect and understanding from that bunch anyway. I certainly don't, and my ideal partner has a pair of tits and a fanny. Let him vote against, "marriage" is - like I said - an arbitrary title. Just don't pull parallels to slavery, that's taking it way too far. They should dig up some other organized superstition and apply the title there. Yaweh doesn't like the gays anyway.

The intellectual journey that had began with Copernicus displacing humans from the centre of the Universe and continued with Darwin’s insistence that humans are merely modified monkeys has finally focused in on the very essence of life. And there was nothing special about it. The double helix is an elegant structure, but its message is downright prosaic: life is simply a matter of chemistry.
