Obama Asks Court to Dismiss Challenge to Anti-Gay Marriage Law

The Justice Department has asked a federal court to dismiss a challenge to a federal Anti-Gay Marriage Law that denies equal federal tax benefits to married homosexual couples. Though unsurprising, since Obama has never really been a supporter of gay-marriage, it is upsetting both as a potential setback for LGBT rights and because of it is yet another reminder of how the executive branch sticks its nose into everything.

I thought this might be a nice opportunity to touch on both gay marriage rights - (do they exist? Should the government be involved in marriage at all?) as well as the current state of our governement, with its scales ever tipping toward total executive power and influence.
