    This is what it boils down to for you -- money. You only approve of using tax dollars for a special, privileged class. That's discrimination, but you obviously don't care.

    The best solution is to get government out of marriage so that our tax dollars aren't being wasted providing discriminatory benefits.

    If my tax dollars are used to support straight marriages, then your dollars should be used to support gay marriages. It's only fair.

    Two fallacies in that statement. I'm not a leftie and I prefer minimal spending. Government is too large. It needs spending cuts and program elimination. One way to save money is to get government out of marriage, thereby eliminating all the tax funded programs used to provide benefits.

    Feel free to ignore this clarification also.

    Simple view? The ability to marry the person that you love?



    Wow...what a concept. I suppose you like the Government telling you who you are allowed to marry.

    Re: New Jersey Senate Defeats Gay Marriage Bill

    Might want to specify that two human adults should have the right to marry. That way, the NAMBLA remark holds no water. Actually it doesn't anyway, because it is foolish to make the connection that strongly.

    Just like that? If we instead specify that a man and a woman should have the right to marry, does that mean that any gay marriage remarks "hold no water?" I'm having trouble following your reasoning.

    Did I mention your name? Have you got a guilty conscience?
