    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 administration finally catches up with the Conservatives who have, and still are, taking action for same-sex marriage.

    It catches up with Vaughn R. Walker (judge who struck down Prop 8), Theodore Olson (lawyer who argued to strike down Prop 8), and Arnold Schwarzenegger (California Governor who took no action against the ruling).

    There are several non-Conservatives who verbally support same-sex marriage, but take no action for it. Its good to see the Obama administration finally doing something.

    That's 8.8 MILLION PEOPLE total. Still unable to read basic statistics I guess. 8.8 million gays = ~2.5% of the population. ~2.5% of the population is closer to 1.5% than 10%.

    Your epic fail keeps getting bigger.

    I have no problem with polygamy. Unless someone finds some valid arguements against it then I'll support it. Just as I support SSM.

    Why does Obama need to defend a law he doesn't like?
