Gay Marriage: Department Of Justice Pushes DOMA Cases Toward Supreme Court!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersLGBT

gay marriage washington

What a glorious Friday it is! The Obama administration is fighting for gay rights and WE LOVE IT!!!

The Department of Justice has just asked the Supreme Court to hear the final appeals in Massachusetts v. Dep't of Health and Human Services and Golinski v. Office of Personnel Management.

While the Golinski case was to be heard in front of an Appeals court, the DOJ wants the Supreme Court to hear it now.

Since both of the cases question the constitutionality of DOMA, the Court could end up overturning DOMA's actions all together!

We can only hope! LOVE & EQUALITY FOR ALL!!!

    I think the best you can hope for is that the supreme court will leave that decision up to individual states, which is where your phony hero Obama said it belongs. He's going through motions for your gay votes, Perez. Grow the fuck up and get a clue. Even YOU can't be that fucking stupid. He's appearing to support you because it's an election year. He had four years to do this and didn't … until it occurred to him that he needs your gay votes. But even this is tepid. If you buy into it, you're a bigger fool than I thought you were. And NO, I am not a Romney supporter. I think both options suck.

    He's only doing it because he wants to get re-elected. Where was Obama for the past 3 1/2 years?

    Actually — oh omniscient one — DOMA involves FEDERAL recognition of rights that HAVE be granted by the states. The crux of the case is that the federal government does not currently recognize gay marriages that ARE recognized by the States. So, if the Court does "leave it to the states". Then those who are legally married will get all of the same rights that straight married people get from the federal government. So we WANT them to "leave it to the states" in the case of this law. What you are thinking of is the need for States to recognize as married the gay people whose marriages take place in states that legally recognize gay marriage. That piece of the law seems to violate that portion of the Constitution which requires individual States to recognize the laws of the other States. So your contempt for the President is your business — and you are entitled to your opinion — but you should at least educate yourself on the real issues instead of just spouting out your ignorant uneducated rant. Honor the Constitution and leave marriage to the states is just what the Court SHOULD (and hopefully will) say. My only fear is that the Chief Justice will try to find a back door way (similar to their recent ruling) to say the law is constitutional. But it is more difficult as their is no "penalty" involved here.

    Re: Omniscient Gal – Thank god we have you, Omniscient Gal, with your unenthusiastic disdain for all sides. Give me a break, if Obama was filled with such empty promises, then why are you people so freaked out about him getting re-elected? More anti-discrimination legislation was passed during his four years than the past 10 terms combined. You know as well as I do that same sex marriage will be legalized in this country and soon. After all of this fighting, I actually DO wish it affected you, since it would be nice to see you suffer for a while instead of us. But, fortunately for you, gay marriage just doesn't affect you and it never will. The world is changing around you, fast, and it's not going to wait for you to loosen the fuck up.

    Re: FrankieLA – There is a problem with this point. There are a lot of federal laws that do not recognize same sex marriage for the purposes of benefits or other entitlements. Before you say anything, I'm not looking for any handouts. My main point of contention is that the man I am in love with and have been living together in a committed relationship is not a U.S. citizen. He is in the U.S. legally on a work visa (HB-1) but his visa and contract are due to expire in 5 months. If the laws are not recognized a the federal level, he will be forced to return to his home country. Heterosexual couples can marry a non-citizen and then the non-citizen can apply to become a naturalized citizen of the U.S. U.S. immigration policy states that this rule specifically does NOT apply to same-sex marriages, even those marriages that take place in states where they are legal. While I agree it is, and should be a states-rights issue, federal rules and laws MUST be equal across the board.
