Conservatives In DC Already Talking About Restoring DOMA?

What a bunch of spoilsports…

On the heels of the Supreme Court overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, there's already talk that conservative representatives in Washington will try to restore DOMA! We'll wait until you finish yelling "whaaaa?" at your computer screen.

Representative Tim Huelskamp of Kansas said the following in response to today's verdict:

“My response to this will be later this week to file a federal marriage amendment."

Yeah, good luck with that, Tim! Oh, and just FYI, amendments to the Constitution began as a way to prevent the federal government from infringing on citizens' liberties, not as a way to get rid of hard earned freedoms. Meanwhile, thousands of Americans, of all sexual orientations, are celebrating this monumental victory at rallies across the country! Tim, we think you'll have better luck trying to file a noise complaint than a constitutional amendment.

Human Rights Campaign Responds: Supreme Court Ruling Shows The "Two Americas" That Exist

In one of the most important Supreme Court cases of the past decade, the members of the highest court in the land struck down the Defense of Marriage Act as well as rejecting an appeal on California's Prop 8 in a 5-4 decision. This will return the right for everyone in the Golden State to marry whoever they want!

While this news is Supreme-ly AH-mazing and a HUGE victory, let's not forget that there are pockets of the LGBT community in America who cannot fully participate in today's victory, and that progress in many states towards marriage equality is still at a standstill.

Chad Griffin, President of the Human Rights Campaign, puts some perspective on this landmark ruling:
