DOMA Under Siege

Just when you thought that the definition of marriage was safe? Here's a story that will remind us to stay vigilant. Our opponents will not give up. They are masters at the art of incrementalism...

Today's Boston Globe reports that the homosexual advocacy group GLAD is developing strategies to overturn the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Passed by large margins in the Congress and signed into law by former President Bill Clinton. gay activists are looking to either have this law ruled unconstitutional or have it rolled back.

Keep in mind that the federal DOMA is a law and is subject to a court's interpretation.

In 2006, Colorado voters by an overwhelming margin passed our defense of marriage act, an amendment to our state's constitution. Our current Governor opposed this measure.

Your thoughts?
