Factual tax filers creating 'legal mess' says man whose own W-2 comes from legally messing with gay taxpayers

by Jeremy Hooper

Unmarried heterosexual Thomas Peters -- who, last time I checked, is neither a CPA or an IRS official -- will now tell legally married gay citizens what, exactly, they are "trying to create" when they refuse to lie about their status on their tax forms:

Thomas Peters, cultural director for the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex marriage, said what is unfair is Iowa residents not getting a chance to vote on same-sex marriage. The tax issue is part of that larger debate, he said.

“If we want to simplify the tax code, let’s allow the democratic process to work out over the underlying debate about what marriage is,” he said.

The National Organization for Marriage’s Peters said gay-rights activists are trying to create a “legal mess” to “push an agenda to offer a false solution.”

We simplify the tax code by legally divorcing Iowa's same-sex married couples? Otherwise, those same-sex couples who are legally married are creating a "legal mess" by checking the proper, married box on a form where truth is a supposed demand?

So wait, Thomas—are we gays allowed to say the Pledge of Allegiance, or do we have to wait for majority approval on that too? Just let us know soon, buddy. We'd hate for our belief that our tax dollars entitle us to an equal slice of the pie create a legal mess for you and your vice-gripped America.
