obama supports repeal of defense of marriage act

This is what we like love to hear!

Back in February, we were VERY happy to hear the Justice Department's announcement that President Barack Obama called the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, and that he would refuse to continue defending it.

As a reminder, the DOMA law "allows states not to recognize same-sex marriages preformed in other states and provides a federal definition for 'marriage' that excludes same-sex couples."

Now, Obama is moving forward with his support of the repeal of DOMA, by backing up the Respect for Marriage Act, which "which would take the Defense of Marriage Act off the books for once and for all." A-MAZING!

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on the new bill this Wednesday, which would repeal all three sections of DOMA!!!

This is very exciting news! Thanks for the support, Obama!

    Human Rights Campaign
    We thank the President for his support of the Respect for Marriage Act. He has repeatedly expressed his desire to see the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act repealed and his Justice Department has taken the historic step of ending its defense of that odious law in court. By supporting this legislation, the President continues to demonstrate his commitment to ending federal discrimination against tens of thousands of lawfully married same-sex couples.
    Courage Campaign
    We are delighted that today, on the eve of a historic Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, President Obama endorsed the Respect for Marriage Act. It is rare that a White House endorses a bill that has yet to pass first in either the Senate or the House. President Obama’s decision to do so underscores the urgency with which the Defense of Marriage Act must be repealed. His support makes clear to all Americans that the Defense of Marriage Act has no place in our society.

    He supports it so much that his administration has tried blocking it every single chance they get…LIARS! He's cow-towing now because he's lost his base and the enemy is approaching.

    What bill does he not try to pass ? He's just trying to gain popluarity to try to get elected for a 2nd term. How he got elected for the first one is beyond me. He is a joke, people who voted for him are now seeing how much of a piece of trash he really is.

    Having failed to end DADT and staying clear of gay marriage, he has to do something to get the gay vote behind him - again. After all, election time is right around the corner.

    And there it is. I knew an hour couldn't go by without another gay agenda post.

    Re: bobo99 – We're just happy that progress is being made and repealing DOMA isn't un-American. If you think it is, then you have a twisted idea of what America really is.

    Re: dryan1971 – "What bill does he not try to pass ?" I promise you he will NOT "pass" a bill declaring you an articulate, enlightened spokesperson!
    Congress 'passes' bills. The President signs bills into law or vetoes them.
    Re: bobo99 – Neither of President Obama's vetoes [1)December 30, 2009: Vetoed H.J.Res. 64; 2) October 7, 2010: Vetoed H.R. 3808] were overridden by Congress. What does that say about the Congress?
