We all know that DOMA, the so called “Defense of Marriage Act” from the 1990s, is discriminatory. States are allowed to regulate marriage, and several have done so (along with the District of Columbia) to include gays and lesbians. Senator Dianne Feinstein brought forth a bill in the Senate that repeals DOMA earlier this year. And even better news? Today, the President endorsed the repeal of DOMA.
So thank you, Senator, and thank you, Mister President. We continue to need your leadership for equality in this country.
And by the way, speaker Boehner? How about you STOP paying the tab for the expensive lawyers to defend DOMA? You’re wasting precious funds on an unconstitutional law.
