I was going to mention Zoroastrianism which pre-dates that and where some of the stories of the Abrahamic religions come from , but yours is a better example, the religion that their Jesus supposedly actually belonged to.

Yes.

No.

Should have been a question mark after the first sentence.

The second was mockery of the idea that it would not be prejudicial to give it to only hetero and homo couples.

Funny I just think couples, I donít bother with the hetro and homo prefixes.

I know a lot of nice couples, regardless of their orientation.

Polygamy is marriage worthy of the same respect and consideration as SSM.
It is not a fish. It is an equal rights issue.
No, it's not an equal rights issue.
Nobody can marry more than one person.
If a man could marry more than one woman, but a woman couldn't marry more than one man, we'd have an equal rights issue.
Should a person be able to marry more than one person?
Well, start a forum on the topic, and debate that issue.

Red herring.
Gay marriage just isn't an equal rights issue, polygamy is.
Notice I'm not arguing for or against gay marriage.

A man can marry a woman, but a woman can't. That's an equal rights issue, moron, because a man is allowed to do something a woman can't, just because he's a man.
A woman can marry a man, but a man can't. Again, an equal rights issue.
Wow, you are dumb.

I take it the consensus among the people of tolerance and diversity is:
SSM GOOD! Polygamy BAD!
No reasons given. That's the way it is because polygamy is a "non issue"! And it's a fish! And my favorite- "it's not an equal rights issue, it just isn't"
What a bunch of hypocrites!
You are so stupid. You don't even know what the term "red herring" means! You think I'm talking about fish!
LOLSER!
And dummy, I didn't say it's not an equal right issue becuse it just isn't. I explained why it isn't. You are just too dumb to understand.
Equal means the same.
Everybody has the same rights when it comes to marring more than one person.
Again, fart breath, if you want to talk about polygamy, why don't you start a forum about the subject? Oh, yeah, because you don't give a damn about polygamy one way or another, you are just against gay marriage, but have no real argument against it. So, you bring up the red herring of polygamy.

Technically the Bible never says 'flat'.

Which brings up the earlier assertion about 'four corners'

Really. How does that assertion explain the divorce rate.

However, it wasn't my point.

What is government interest in giving special rights to only certain friendships with a select number?

you say it refers to a circle. a circle is flat and is 2d. a sphere is 3d, has depth and dimension. go back and read the math is fun website's definitions and that will help clarify the two with their differences.

I know a lot of nice couples regardless of their orientation too.

But everyone is very aware of their orientation.

However, that is a diversion from the issue. If the only basis of marriage is friendship, government has no interest in providing protection or provisions for them. ESPECIALLY when it segregates every other type of friendship.

actually, the state failed to show it had interest in not granting the same rights to homosexual coupls.

and the state was represented not by the state attorney, but instead by republicans and their attornies.

that decision has been upheld by every judge that has had the appeal presented to them by the republicans and their attornies.
