I did. You started out:<quoted text>
"Now, in order to help you understand the big old world in which you live, let me explain that the question of marriage is not about a civil right at all."
That's not right.
Civil rights are the only issue.
Bigfoot, your "argument" makes no sense.
"An appeal for equal treatment would certainly not lead a court to require that a small business enterprise be called a marriage just because two business partners prefer to think of their business that way."
That is so stupid. That has nothing to do with civil rights, as long as the laws apply equally to all citizens.
The rights and responsibilities of a marriage are defined, and they should apply equally to men and women.
