    That would be fine, if it wasnt accorded to others for free by the state under the same circumstances except for their gender.

    Alternatively i think he/she could just return those fat tax breaks to the IRS, if not wanting to be a huge hypocrite.

    So you think the dictionary is divinely inspired? Better start up a religion and reap those tax breaks.

    It's a social construction like anything else. As marriage itself changes, so does the dictionary.

    How do you return the government taking less of your money?

    Write a check to the IRS for the difference between joint and single filing, since you don't believe in state intervention in marriage. I promise they will cash it.

    It's not cool, it's sick and such a massive injustice against freedom and human rights. Regardless of your stance on SSM, this is wrong on so many levels.
    So if 66% of voters vote that homosexuals cannot own property, cannot attend heterosexual-only universities/schools, are not allowed to drive automobiles or be out after dark, then it would be a "massive injustice against freedom and human rights" if a court overturned that vote because it was unconstitutional?

    See, we are not a pure democracy for a reason, and the primary reason is so that the majority of people cannot get together and vote away human rights from the minority. The constitution prohibits this, and those 66% of voters who tried to do just that are basically **** out of luck.

    But your idol has guaranteed you have the right:

    "Others have said they would personally be happy to pay higher taxes. I welcome their enthusiasm. I'm pleased to report that the IRS accepts both checks and money orders." - george w bush, 2008 state of the union

    Anyway, just burn the money if not, since by your own admission you shouldn't have the tax break.
