    I'm not getting the "it's not about money" angle here. The Supreme Court decision on DOMA is about discrimination. To me, the advocates for the "Respect for Marriage" act are trying to usurp the rights of states to define marriage.

    So the striking down of DOMA didn't remedy discrimination against gay married couples as neatly as I was told in another thread here. Now we need a "respect for marriage act" to fix it. So, MORE legislation is needed because we don't want to fix the more basic problem of giving benefits to the "married class" that the "unmarried class" is denied. This is just one example how the gov dividing society along arbitrary lines and deciding which group deserves special treatment is a bad idea. And, of course, it is at least in part about the money.

    exactly

    ....why else would all the homos want to be 'married'??
     
  4. I'm sure if the 1136 benefits afforded to married couples suddenly went away there would be no public outcry from the heterosexuals, because for heterosexuals it's not about money.
     
  5. Why does the government give special rights, privileges and tax breaks to married couples, while denying them to single people?

    Is this a legitimate and necessary purpose of government?
     
  6. I guess you'd have to ask the 84% married Congress :dunno:

    No...

    The government shouldn't even know if you are married
