So how does one get pedophilia is going to be accepted since people giving others the right to the word marriage is being accepted?

It's a form of argument known as reductio ad absurdum.

That argument only works if you ignore the foundational premise of "between consenting adults". No one here has advocated allowing marriage between animals/adults/children other than yourself and a few others.

Hey.

I didn't say it was a good "reductio ad absurdum" argument! LOL

I also find it sort of ironic that those who seem to blanch at the idea of plural marriage are those who believe in the Bible. If you want many examples of polygamy just look in the bible, especially the old Testament. I always chuckle that those who say polygamy  that is the Old Testament doesn't  count but will gladly bring up what the old Testament says about homosexuality and say that oh those rules do count

“The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance …or change... logic can be happily tossed out the window. Religious mania is one of the few infallible ways of responding to the worlds vagaries, because it totally eliminates pure accident. To the true religious maniac, it’s ALL on purpose” – Stephen King, The Stand
