I also believe government incentives for marriage generally should be abolished. It's not like we have a shortage of babies or something, and these are the chief arguments by reasonable people with an objection to our position.
Like I posted before, equalize the rights between unions and marriages and then there'll be equal rights. When the gov't forces every union to be a marriage, this goes against the religion portion of the first amendment (gov't shall not set up a 'state' religion).
Let me explain: when religions, who don't agree with same-sex marriage, are denied tax breaks by the gov't because they won't allow a same-sex union to be performed at their premises, this is a violation of the religion portion of the first amendment: gov't shall not set up a gov't religion.

I do think its very very sad that we are going through this in american in 2013, its really ashame
BUT on a brighter side if you would have asked me 10-15 years ago i would of said ill never see gay rights in my lifetime, that probably only my daughter will see it, now that's not the case
with the fall of DADT, DOMA and the IRS ruling its inevitable. 13 states and DC have it and the best part is the states that banned it are actually going to make it easier.
2.) i dont at all i like that the government protects the contract and rights of my family. Now if people want to adjust the tax code or something thats fine but theres tons of other rights that need to stay and need protected.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
