And maybe you need a lesson in reading comprehension, dolt.
I said they are not APPLIED evenly... and they are not. Not even close which makes them unconstitutional. What makes it worse anyway? How is me hitting you, and me hitting you and calling you a name that you don't like worse?
Such utter liberal stupidity.
Why do you claim they are not applied equally?
Any evidence to back up that claim?
Or are ewe just repeating what ewe herd some right wing talk show host say?

Wow, there is just a world of fail in that response.
I gave you an answer, you didn't like it, had no response so you ignored it.
Its special because it was opened simply because of the passage of laws for gay people. The office would never be open on a Sunday for just straight marriages... even you have to be able to understand that... even with your blinders on.
AFAIK, straight people are free to go.

So, only gay people's taxes are going to cover the office being open on Sunday... I didn't make a distinction loser.
Again, straight people are free to go.

I love the liberal "what if" scenarios... just like Obama...
we have lost 1.4 million jobs since he took office and unemployment is at 9.2%... but "what if" he didn't pass the stimulus bill. Somehow they pull a number out of their ass and he has "saved" jobs.
So ridiculous.
Keep trying, you will just keep failing.
Not sure what that has to do with the NYC offices being open on a Sunday...
Guess is just the obligatory con dumb anti-Obama rant.

Typical liberals.
Hardly as wild assumption in a forum about gay marriage.

There is NO special right. Opposite sex couples and same sex couples can EQUALLY apply for a marriage license on that day and any other day. Both opposite sex couples and same sex couples have the EQUAL right to apply for a marriage license on that day and any other day. Neither opposite sex couples nor same sex couples have any SPECIAL right to apply for a marriage license since the offices will be open to BOTH opposite sex couples and same sex couples. Opposite sex couples and same sex couples enjoy the SAME EQUAL PRIVILEGE to apply for a marriage license on that day and any other day. There is no SPECIAL RIGHT or SPECIAL PRIVILEGE since the offices are open to BOTH opposite sex couples and same sex couples. The offices are open on Sunday for BOTH opposite sex couples and same sex couples.
Gay tax payers have been supporting the offices being open for only opposite sex couples since the offices first openned. Now, in a CELEBRATION of EQUALITY, tax payers will be paying for the offices to be open to BOTH opposite sex couples and same sex couples.

We totally agree with you, Thunk, but did you have to restate your comment about equality between gays and straights so many times in one fat paragraph. Sorry, I am a retired newspaper writer and editor. Just pointing out that it takes away from your credibility to be so repetitive.

Some posters say they are bothered by the use of taxpayer (as if gay people don't pay taxes) money to open the NYC offices on Sunday. Well, think of the centuries gay couples have been paying taxes, but weren't allowed to go to the offices to get a marriage license.
One day out of 61,000 hardly seems like much.

Rose, you are a flower in this field of condescension. Sure enough, gays have paid taxes without representation and with apprehension. How dare anyone think that the opening of NYC offices for marriage licenses was reserved for the gay population. Let's take a count and see how many gays and straights apply on Sunday. And all this stuff about who is the groom and who is the bride. How gouche! It is insulting and insinuating. Terrible. The passing of the marriage law is another step toward equality. The rebuffing is not over, of course, but this will be another step in the dissipation of such.

Thank you.:)
Let's hope in less than a generation people will be wondering what all the fuss was about.

Oh no, gays will only be afforded the same rights and privileges that the heterosexual population receives, for better or worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, till death do us part. One can not have it both ways, can one? That NYC opens its doors on Sunday, July 24, in order that gays can a day's head start toward wedded bliss is a generous gesture and an inherent acceptance of the new law for gay wedlocks. Good for those free-thinking government leaders who instituted this unique perk. It gives the whole thing a congratulatory flavor which the gay community deserves after an uphill battle toward equality.
The "sickness and health" thingy is probably VERY important to the homo's. Since most of them will die an early death due to diseases brought on by their deviant lifestyle, they're gonna' need that clause that will keep their "spouse"/infector hanging around long enough to bury their poor asses.

They would have approved it years ago..

Is there some law against homophobes learning the difference between plural and possessive!? Come on, a typo is one thing, but not a one of you seems to know the difference!

And is there a law against your leaning or telling the truth!?
Sheesh....
Homophobia is so odd.
Seems ignorance is at the root of it.
