    Actually the President is under no obligation to enforce any law. The advantage of being POTUS. Even if you disagree with this statement he certianly is under no obligation to continue defending a law in court.

    Government drops defense of anti gay marriage law

    More good news for freedom loving Americans who oppose big government.


    Gov't drops defense of anti-gay marriage law - Yahoo! News

    In a major policy reversal, the Obama administration said Wednesday it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a federal law banning recognition of same-sex marriage.

    Attorney General Eric Holder said President Barack Obama has concluded that the administration cannot defend the federal law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman. He noted that the congressional debate during passage of the Defense of Marriage Act "contains numerous expressions reflecting moral disapproval of gays and lesbians and their intimate and family relationships precisely the kind of stereotype-based thinking and animus" the Constitution is designed to guard against.



    The tides of change of beginning to turn. This is a great sign and great progress for the United States movement toward freedom and justice for all.

    This has nothing to do with enforcement. The issue is the Justice Department's defense of DOMA within the justice system.

    Its another step towards equality.

    I have to laugh at Boehner's response though. Hypocritical in its purest form. Since taking over as speaker he has taken up all kinds of legislation, little that has anything to do with JOBS...and then has the audacity to make the statement that he did. It is downright laughable.

    You seem to be in favor of it... Are you one of the 1.5% of the population?

    Or do you think maybe he's just trying to appeal to his base that has been critcizing him on this type of subject for a while now?

    and you are certainly entitled to your opinion....just not the arrogance that everyone else should adopt your personal view.
