For anything.
Taxes do not involve consent.
Why do you want the government to force things on us without consent (taxes, Obamacare, birth control for religious institutions, etc)?

Maybe it's because he doesn't want his children to be taught that homosexuality is normal and an equal alternative to heterosexuality.

I'm pretty sure consent is only relevant regarding sex. YOu consent to following the laws of a country when you take up residence there.

1. I was responding to l.a.t.'s weak, hypocritical argument.

If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.

Great that you support gay marriage. Do you think they can provide the same benefits to society that a heterosexual couple can and thus deserve the tax breaks?

Depends on couple.

No group deserves those tax breaks more than another. It's just more government-sponsored prejudice.

I personally think our society needs to improve personal hygiene and can definitely stand to be better dressed.

I know that the divorce lawyers can't wait to get their hands on rich gay people's money.

So then you're for a flat tax where we all pay the same amount. At least we agree on something.

I'd imagine he would support proportional taxes and not a flat tax. Flat taxes are regressive in nature.

Can you point to one modern society that has a flat tax and explain how it's regresssive?

This whole gay marriage thing is missing the point, I don't care what two people do in their own private lives but I don't believe they should get the same tax benefits married hetero couples do so long as their is a "progressive" "proportional tax".

Why do they get tax benefits that single parents and unmarried hetero couples don't get?

Married couples can produce future tax payers naturally
