    Then I can marry two women or 3 men. heck the more the merrier. Ill marry 4 women and one man. Ill love them all

    The laws as written give the same privileges to all

    Being one I think I know them

    And yes most men are sluts

    Lesbians have no choice as they can only fool around They cant really have sex according to Clinton.

    I don't know how you define "civil rights" but it is certainly an equal protection issue. Being married imparts significant legal benefits. Creating a second class of marriage, one that doesn't grant the same legal benefits
    as a traditional marriage is patently unconstitutional

    Alright, go for it. I don't support such relationships, but that doesn't mean I can't tolerate their existence.

    The laws as written give the same privileges to all
    How can you write that with a straight face?
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
    "When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."

    i have suggested many times on this forum that the govt issue 'civil union' licenses to consenting adults wishing to get 'married' and then if a couple wants a 'traditional' marriage then they can find a church to recognize their civil union as a "marriage"
    I agree, IMO if not for the "activist" on both sides of the fight, this matter could have been settled by now.
