    IRS won't recognize same-sex marriage

    In a clarification that threatens the viability of same-sex marriages, the IRS says homosexual couples cannot file joint tax returns because they would be in violation of the Defense of Marriage Act.

    The IRS says the 1996 statute, signed by President Clinton, means "only married individuals under this definition could elect to file a joint tax return."

    Jeez this gives me hope that maybe after the election and W's victory we can get this constitutional ban passed and put this issue to rest.

    do you really think a constitutional ban is going to solve this issue? Please, this is just the beginning of the firestorm.

    and do everyone a favor......we all know how disgusted you are by homosexuality, lay off the names.
