Defense of Marriage Act Targeted in Massachusetts

The Massachusetts attorney general asked a Federal judge to strike down the Federal Defense of Marriage Act. The Federal judge has not announced when he will rule.

Since 2004, nearly 15,000 homosexual couples have wed under Massachusetts judicial mandated gay marriage law, a law that was never voted on by the public.

The state's rational: The Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) interferes in the distribution of Medicaid and other "married" couples in Massachusetts.

The Federal DOMA puts the Obama administration between a rock and a hard spot. On the one hand, Obama is the most pro-homosexual rights President in US History. On the other, his administration will be forced to defend DOMA.

Being conflicted comes as the result of being on the wrong side of an issue with God and nature.
