Nationwide DOMA Protest Today!

Today is the nationwide protest against the 'Defense of Marriage Act'

DOMA is pure discrimination written into our law by stating that:

1. No state (or other political subdivision within the United States) need treat a relationship between persons of the same sex as a marriage, even if the relationship is considered a marriage in another state.

2. The Federal Government may not treat same-sex relationships as marriages for any purpose, even if concluded or recognized by one of the states.

Check the listing for an event in a city near you!

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong! DOMA (Defense of Marriage ACT) is not, I repeat NOT a constitutional ammendment it is a LAW! I'm all for protesting it, but you people need to get your facts right!
