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