colostomy bag. >> stephanie: as you crystallize the point so well, you say here is the question, if the government says we're not going to allow marriage because christian marriage says it should be for heterosexual couples only then what is the difference between that and the sharia law? >> right. once the group started asserting the desire for this right, then it -- it -- it -- there became no rational basis to prevent that right from being legalized. and -- and -- to oppose that right does make you bigoted, and yes, there are -- there are reasons to not -- to not legalize polygamy. there are, you know, psychological and other kinds of reasons that say well you have
them for that -- but we have studies that are done by scientists who's studies are not discredited, people that trot out same-sex couples raising kid studies are often just trotting out the same discredited study they have been using for years. >> stephanie: right. there was a great piece about how 99% of the socialologist in the country were shaking their head at scrollalia. >> yeah, and i love how the right always clings to the one scientist that supports their point. as if he or she is this loan rebel -- >> stephanie: and there is 40,000 kids being raised by gay couple just here in california.

freedom to practice whatever religion you want, gays just want to marry. why can't we -- >> caller: you are talking to a christian that doesn't have any problem with same-sex marriage. what bothers me is when you have guests that come in here and say that this guy on the radio, your caller is now a bigot, and is now guilty of a hate crime -- >> stephanie: nobody said that.
