    You're not being very successful.

    Really?

    So you think that the hetero couples who have children before getting married- should not be allowed to marry?

    Or just that you support Kaz's position that he has his perks, and is happy to have gay couples pay for his perks, while denying those couples the same perks that he enjoys.

    Divorce would work very effectively for you.

    Nobody has a 'right' to any 'subsidy'- but subsidies exist in society. Every renter subsidizes home owners through the mortgage interest deduction. Every single person subsidizes every parent with children in public schools, and every parent who takes a deduction for a dependent. Every tax payer subsidizes every business that gets a special tax deduction. Every atheist subsidizes churches who are exempt for taxes- and every tax payer subsidizes every non-profit exempt from taxes.

    Our society is rife with 'subsidies'- and people like Kaz are happy to have his- and happy to have gay couples pay for his subsidies- while denying them to gay couples.

    And that is not equal treatment before the law.

    But Kaz doesn't care- he has his- and is happy to have gay couples be paying to support his marriage.

    Then you should say 'gay couples do not reproduce with each other'

    Like many- as a matter of fact- more straight couples do not reproduce with each other- there are more heterosexual couples who start families using invitro with sperm donations, and adopting- than there are gay couples who start families that way.

    Yet- we call them- with their children(regardless of whether they are born through invitro or adopted after their hetero parents abandoned them)- family.

    And parents are the people who make the effort to raise the children- not the people who birth them and then abandon them to the state to find some couple to do what they weren't willing or able to do themselves.

    You just admitted that we don't all receive equal subsidies, so why should the marriage subsidy be an exception? Why is that unconstitutionality while the other unequal subsidies are not?

    Your argument just fell on its face.

    LOL.....I am just enjoying pointing out what a hypocrite Kaz is.

    My argument is just fine- since all married couples get the same benefits.

    Your argument is bogus since you claim the Constitution requires everyone to get equal benefits and you yourself pointed out many examples where not everyone gets equal benefits.

    I don't see you crying that single people pay higher taxes than married people or that renters pay more than homeowners.
