However you feel about the issue of gay marriage, it should scare you that Obama is taking over the Supreme Court's constitutionally-mandated role. It should scare you that he also does not feel the need to have his "advisors" (aka. Czars) confirmed by the Senate, as also mandated in the Constitution. Our government is as close to totalitarianism as it has ever been since FDR militarized the nation for WWII. When will Americans wake up and see their freedom slipping away?
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration says it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a federal law that bans recognition of same-sex marriage.
In a statement Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder says President Obama has concluded that the administration can no longer defend the federal law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman.
The Justice Department had defended the Defense of Marriage Act in court until now.
