Thought it was a joke.
I'm not screaming but I do believe equality means equal for everyone. And there's enough marriage to go around. Everyone can have one. If we allow poly licenses there won't be a shortage of same sex licenses silly!
You're so selfish! And kinda dumb.
P.S. Do your anti polygamy rant! "What about the children?!!" Don't say you never did, you and I know you did! Too funny!
Monogamy in the context of polygamy is indeed a joke... just like you.
Oh and another thing, come up with a better dodge. Moving the goalpost is SO juvenile.

Not even close to the first established religion, there are many that predate Christianity.

Granted most Christians today are Catholics, but historically it was not the first established religion

"b: a closed plane curve every point of which is equidistant from a fixed point within the curve"

Could be a sphere, or a circle, it could apply in both directions, making a complete sphere. Too wrong.

You sound like a hormonal little boy, the way you speak. So willing to speak about ideas you know nothing about. Very foolish. You must listen a lot to the nonsense of that teacher who keeps lying saying, "homosexuality is ok kids, don't worry, its cool to be gay".

curve, not surface. a surface of a sphere is 3d, and a curve is 2d.

Same sex marriage is apartheid marriage. Where husband/wife marriage is gender diverse now we have gender segregated marriage.

Once, marriage was always integrated and now we have gender disunion marriage.

So you and your husband can't be monogamous and live next door to a polygamist with two husbands? You can't co-exist? That's why we call you a bigot.

My next door neighbors on both sides are same sex couples. I don't have any wives but if I did I bet we'd all still get along real fine like we do now. Sunday dinners almost every week at one of our houses! Love 'em. And they love me, despite my flaming heterosexuality. Too bad you can't be like us.

a circle does not include more than one axis - it is flat, 2 dimensional. really, you must read AND comprehend.

A ball can be loosely refered to as a circle, very stupid. A curve can be 3 dimensional.
