    Ahh, so a conservative who believes that tax credits do count as "being funded."

    Usually conservatives are claiming tax cuts don't count because it's just the government taking less of your money.

    Now, if I have to explain the difference between the government supporting your personal life via subsidy and government banning you from a certain choice, well, I don't know what to tell you.

    This conservative understands that there's a difference between tax cuts, tax rates, and tax credits/deductions. Most conservatives I know believe that taxes should be as low as possible and only fund what government was established to do and what only government can do. Liberals, on the other hand, believe that taxes should be as high as possible so that government can interfere in the daily lives of citizens, can pick winners and losers, can bribe citizens with their own money for their votes, and can fund their pet projects and cronies through kickbacks.

Once filed the marriage is legal. No the state can say they don't recognize it but that might mean another trip to the courts where they will tell them they must recognize it.

    Your license to marry is a time limited document it isn't the wedding.
    I made my previous post while already knowing everything you just said.

    Listen, I'm going to stop you right there before you make yourself look stupid by explicitly or implicitly claiming that I can't think for myself. It may work with your American friends, but this Canadian doesn't need Rush Limbaugh or anyone else to express an educated view of the world, politics, and government.

    Yeah, well, that's not what you did. Instead, you chose to regurgitate the standard partisan hack hyperbole.

    It's not standard partisan hack hyperbole if it's true.

    Not necessarily. Because the state will not provide state benefits or allow joint tax returns in no way invalidates the marriages...it only puts the a fore mentioned state actions on hold.

    The marriages exist...the State of Indiana can not make the marriages not exist during the court ordered stay.
