President Obama, in a major legal policy shift, has directed the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act — the 1996 law that bars federal recognition of same-sex marriages — against lawsuits challenging it as unconstitutional.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday saying that the Justice Department will now take the position in court that the Defense of Marriage Act should be struck down as a violation of gay couples’ rights to equal protection under the law.

gonna be some pissed off closeted gay republicans

I have no problem with it. People should be able to get married. all people and any people.

But now we have a President that has decided what is constitutional and what is not without overturning the law first. Sweet! one more step closer to a dictatorship.

Love how Obama has deemed himself above the law. Basically he is saying that we have a law...but that he has instructed the government to not enforce said law.

Not enforcing laws because they are difficult or arbitrary to enforce happens. See: Prohibition.

Get Over Yourself.
