Here’s a little info on the Defense of Marriage Act that stands to be overturned under the Obama administration. This is serious because radical left-wing Democrats are attempting to repeal DOMA, which could then lead to,
“rapacious lawsuits” and “legal Armageddon,” one commentator warns.
So what you might say. . . well here is why this matters,
[the] DOMA provides federal statutory protection to states against legal efforts to force them to recognize same-sex “marriage” through federal court decisions.
“This statutory protection is now more important than ever, as witnessed by the rapacious lawsuits of radical activists in California,” [Niger Innis] argued, [Innis is an advisory board member of Alliance for Marriage and national spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality]. “If federal DOMA falls, every state marriage amendment stands to be overturned by activists in federal court.”
Certain legislators and their media allies are pushing for the repeal of the DOMA, which is why you probably won’t hear on the news how important it is to preserve it.
President Barack Obama should not inflict “great harm” upon the “future of marriage” by allying with those who “falsely invoke” the Civil Rights movement to “radically” change the definition of marriage.
[Innis called the DOMA, the] “legal underpinning” of marriage amendments passed in 30 states.
California leads the marriage issue, like it leads a lot of things in this country. Referring to Prop 8, Innis claimed,
“A court ruling voiding a second democratic vote on marriage in the nation’s most populous state would mark the beginning of the end for democracy in America.”
The redefinition of marriage has resulted in freedom of religion, association and conscience being “trampled upon.” He cited the decision of Catholic Charities in Boston to end its adoption services because it could not place children with homosexual couples as required by a new Massachusetts law.
“What happened in Massachusetts is simply a foretaste of what is to come to every state from California to Missouri to Virginia – with or without state constitutional amendments – if federal DOMA falls.”
