Because of the current tax code, I believe it is a legal obligation to recognize same sex marriage. If traditional married couples get a tax break, then married LGBT couples should get the same tax breaks. It is unfair and unjust to deny them the same advantages because of their gender. If two people love each other and are willing to make a commitment of the highest order, they should have the same privileges regardless of their gender.
Don’t infringe upon my liberties and I won’t infringe upon yours. Everyone should have the same liberties regardless of their gender, age, ethnicity, sexual preference, religious preference, etc. This is the USA and that is what our Constitution allows for. If we, as a governing body give tax breaks and other rewards to married couples of one man and one woman, we are infringing on the liberties of other couples wishing to share in the joy of holy matrimony. If you take the plunge (a sacred oath that should not end in divorce at the mere whim of simple conflict; especially when children are involved), you deserve to be treated like any married couple.
That being said, Rand Paul has proposed a fair and flat tax for everyone thus getting rid of traditionally married couple’s tax privileges. By doing so, this preserves the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman (AS IT SHOULD BE). If you want me to recognize your same sex marriage, when there is no benefit from a legal or governmental stand point, I will not do so.
What you do in your own home is your business. I don’t want to know. No one should pry into the lives of someone else and pass judgment. That is not our place on this Earth. And I feel that would infringe upon one’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The SCOTUS ruling is unconstitutional and they should be ashamed of themselves. Not because it allows for same sex marriage, but because it defies the Constitution of this great country. If not specifically defined in the Constitution, the creation of laws falls to the individual states. If a state has decided not to recognize gay marriage and you want to get married, MOVE. If a state has decided to recognize gay marriage, and you are offended by it enough to openly protest and attempt to block another couples right to marry in that specific state, you need to MOVE. Go to a state that delivers what you want. That is your individual liberty, your right.
Please leave any comments you wish, but keep it clean, be respectful of opinions, and no mud slinging. Thanks.
