<quoted text>vedry same topic, that i don't support marriage equality. do try to keep up, dear, i know it is taxing for those both of those little grey cells of yours...
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.

i just strive for clarity.
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.

So they have a right to marry once they are married? Priceless. You need to rethink that.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage.

It's a condominium. We (the homeowners, collectively) own the land as well as the building. I pay the homeowner's association to have a 24 hour front desk/concierge, pool, gym, full time staff of 9, and full maintenance of the grounds and building. And FYI, "almost paid off" means the mortgage is almost paid off and then I have at least $500K of equity. This means if I sell I walk away with $500K less closing costs.
