ACLU: A Victory for Love: Federal Appeals Court Declares DOMA Unconstitutional



The Defense of Marriage Act is clearly Unconstitutional, for the life of me I can't figure out why Bill Clinton. Signed this into law as President in 1996, a man whose a lawyer and whose suppose to be a Liberal Democrat and a big believer of Civil Rights, who served as Attorney General of his own State. Who now says signing DOMA in 1996 was the worst decision he's ever made, DOMA is Unconstitutional for 2-3 reasons, it violates the Equal Protection Clause, that protects all Americans. And gives all of use equal access under law and it also violates the 10th and 11th Amendments, that grant certain powers to the States, marriage has always been something thats been traditionally. Regulated by the States, that changed in 1996 when Big Government Republicans who believe the Federal Government, is apparently now powerful enough, pushed DOMA through Congress. DOMA has only stayed on the books as long as it has, because Right Wingers who believe homosexuals don't. Deserve the same Constitutional Rights as heterosexuals in America and see homosexuality as immoral or something, have ruled in favor of DOMA time after time.
