You didn't see me because I was in Keh Sanh doing what I was trained to do, you were out at sea, remember you dumb FK.
No. I was in country too. Navy helicopters. Odd jobs. SAR. Picked up a lot of orphaned and scared marines. Not that I wasn't scared sh!tless myself.

You guys are tough and you're heroic and all that but you sure are meatheads.

You approve of polygamy and incest marriage? It doesn't really matter if you do or don't of course, all that is needed is a sympathetic judge.

Now weren't you going to direct me to a post where you proved me wrong about something? Or was that just another of your lies?

"Heterosexual marriage"? Man on man Woody, you sure do,love those sexual identity labels? Actually Woody it's opposite sex, or as it commonly known, conjugal as in husband and wife. Remember there are opposite sex, mixed orientation marriages. Mr. & Mrs. Josh Weed.

You approve of incest marriage? Religious fundie type polygamy? I find that very hard to believe. But if you say so and it's really true, I take it back that you are a hypocrite. If it's not true of course you are a liar.

even Alexander the Great, one of the greatest conquerers and rulers of all time was gay...
hmmm...you didnt think that one out well, did you?
Sorry, Woody but "gays" didn't exist back then. The use of the word "gay" to denote homosexuality, also a relatively recently coined word to describe same sex sexual behavior, is only a few decades old. No rainbow flags among Alexander the Great troops.

Clarity? Why not just keep it simple, men and women. You can even use SSA (same sex attraction)Save the sexual identity labels for the monthly rainbow club meetings.

if all the laws can be changed to make them equal to the legal marriages we have now, i have no problem with them at all. said so many times...

religious fundie marriages have nothing to do with real marriage legal marriage is what we are talking about. religious rites of matrimony hold the same weight as a group of people dancing around a fire and waving sticks...

Fundamentalists have a substantial first amendment right to marry according to the dictates of their faith. Your support for marriage equality extends to them I hope? It sure doesn't sound like it.

Even if they wave sticks and dance around fires, they deserve the same equal protection of the law as you.
