    5 percent seems high.
    I'd be interested to hear how you think a country is supposed to function without taxes.

    Which has precisely nothing to do with gay marriage. How is the government using "your tax dollars" to "promote" gay marriage.

    What in the actual **** are you talking about?

    Are taxes being spent on gay marriage in anyway?

    You mean forced taxes, right?

    Not in any way that it's not being spent on straight marriage. I suppose one could say that the clerk or whoever issues the marriage license is paid by tax dollars, but even then that's a pretty pathetic argument against marriage equality.

    It's hard for me to imagine the state's coffer's being sucked dry in any case. I'm pretty sure I paid a fee when my wife and I registered our marriage.

    Legislation, courts, and also the second sentence you wrote.

    So let me get this straight ... SSM shouldn't be legal because taxes pay for the process by which it becomes legal?

    You mean forced taxes or taxes?
    I suspect you may be new to debate, at least on a public forum, so let me give you a helpful tip: when someone asks you a question and you go out of your way to avoid answering it, what you're effectively announcing is that you don't have an answer. So would you like to answer how you expect a government to operate without taxes or do you intend to quibble on what taxes are called forever? Or maybe you'd like to choose door #3: you hadn't really thought that through and you'd like to drop it.
