Some Conservative Jews Complaining Marriage Equality Is Too Equal

e·gal·i·tar·i·an (-g l -târ - n). adj. Affirming, promoting, or characterized by belief in equal political, economic, social, and civil rights for all people.
Still trying to figure out how "too egalitarian" would work.
Isn't that basically what most anti-gays try to use?

I can see why, given that the supposed heterosexual equivalent was written like one farmer was buying another farmer's extra cow, um daughter, the new homosexual equivalent would seem way too egalitarian, especially if you are a heterosexual farmer wanting to buy a cow that ain't all uppity about being treated like a cow. If you were a Jewish woman of a conservative faith, this would be just one more reminder of the fuzzy end of the lollipop you get as a result of it.
