I approve of this Rand Paul quote on gay-marriage.


quote:

“I’m an old-fashioned traditionalist. I believe in the historic and religious definition of marriage,” he says. “That being said, I’m not for eliminating contracts between adults. I think there are ways to make the tax code more neutral, so it doesn’t mention marriage. Then we don’t have to redefine what marriage is; we just don’t have marriage in the tax code.”

This is a smart and subtle way of saying that government shouldn't be in the marriage business.

You do know that it will never be enough though. It will be the exact same thing as marriage but there will still be people bitching about it not being called marriage.

It really makes sense but the issue isn't necessarily about fairness but more about turning religion on its head...

Liberals hate the power of religion and will do anything to undermine it.

I agree with this, and I think most Americans would agree as well. Libtards and Gays need to be smart enough to understand the difference between religious marriages and contractual relationships between consenting adults. But sadly they are apparently not smart enough or just don't want to think hard enough about it for some reason. This shite is not that difficult and really shouldn't even be a big deal. But alas, we are surrounded by a bunch of morons.

People will eventually realize that its not tolerance of gay marriage/alternative lifestyles that is demanded but rather acceptance that is demanded.

Liberals wont settle for this. They want everyone to confess and accept that marriage between gays is every bit as acceptable as marriage between a man and woman.

Im in the Rand camp here. If two consenting adults want to form a contract then fine. If they can find somewhere that will perform a ceremony for them then fine. Just dont expect me to accept what they do as fine and normal.

This and it can be much more inclusive than a relationship based on love( Best friends, Business partners, etc.). I also don't see why these partnerships need to be limited to just 2 people.

GTFO with that. Apples and oranges comparison and I sincerely hope you are smart enough to know that.

What's more pathetic..... The gays bitching about it not being called marriage, or the jackasses acting like it's a big deal for gays to call it that?

It's easy to say this. Probably a bit more complicated in practice.

So would he let gay married couples file federal taxes jointly and count them as a single taxable entity or not?

The gays bitching about it not being called marriage. Their goal of having the satisfaction of saying they beat that mean ole religon. It has nothing to do with the partnership or contract between two adults and everything to do with being declared the winner and taking a shite on someone elses views.

I'm pretty sure his point is that the term marriage would be eliminated from the tax code and that would eliminate any tax advantages (and there currently is none) for "married" people in the tax code. The government would be their just to enforce contracts and you can call your contract whatever you like.

This really hurts Decatur's narrative.
