DOMA be gone, Supreme Court puts down the hammer

This will be all over the news so I’m only going to write something short. I cannot tell you how proud I am of the Supreme Court for striking down the Defense Against Marriage Act (DOMA). I’m beyond thrilled that something good is happening in our country. We needed this, we needed to see that the US is no longer going to uphold such an unconstitutional piece of garbage as DOMA.

My husband and I had talked about this earlier in the week and he wasn’t sure the Surpreme Court would rule this way, he thought they might kick it back and make the States decide. I am SO happy they put their foot down and made the decision because this means all States which allow same-sex marriage will be barred to this national decision.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman told CNN the ruling was a “great win.” ““A great win not just for the gay community, it’s a great win for the American tradition of equal justice under the law,” he said.

There is no gay agenda or straight agenda. Any couple in a legally binded marriage should receive the SAME RIGHTS regardless of their sexual orientation. Period.

  1. It’s interesting that they sort left it to states but at the same time said the federal government can’t define what constitutes a legitimate marriage where gender is concerned. Sort of sets the precedent for the states. ”Sure,you can try and restrict marriage to men and women, but the nation won’t stand behind you”
    What has me shaking my head is that it was a 5-4 decision with those dissenting writing opinions of ”those who wish to define traditional marriage as a man and women should be free to do so without fear of being labelled a bigot”

    Yes. Let’s not risk your feelings getting hurt Mr Supreme Court Justice.

  2. I still think this is a step in the right direction and I’m not going to pick at it. This was a good stand. This was the right thing to do.
