President Obama Supports the Respect for Marriage Act

President Obama is bigheaded to support the Respect for Marriage Act, which is being introduced by Senator Feinstein and Congressman Nadler in the council on July 20. This legislation would sustain the principle that the federal government should not reject gay and lesbian couples the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.

The President has long called for a legislative revoke of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which continues to have a real collision on the lives of real people -- our families, friends and neighbors.
