Big Push to Repeal DOMA

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
While we have been busy trying to stop Washington State Legislators from commodifying babies and the use of the womb, Democrats in the other Washington have introduced bills in both houses of Congress that would repeal DOMA.

The narrative at the federal level is much the same as it is at the state level, but unlike the Washington State House of Representatives, the US House has a majority of Republicans who have promised to protect DOMA. A large majority of Americans agree with them.

Whether these Democrats are emboldened by President Obama's refusal to defend DOMA or simply pandering to the homosexual activists who voted for them, I don't know.

I am pretty certain, though, that the majority in the US House will defend DOMA and will not cave in their defense.

We will remain vigilant and keep you posted as this progresses.

Thank you for
your support of Faith and Freedom.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.

  1. No, Gary, a large majority of American's do no agree with you and the anti-equality GOP on this issue. Polls vary from showing a slim plurality (46%) opposed to marriage equality, to showing a slim majority (51%) supporting it. Seems the only accurate conclusion one can draw from polling is that Americans are pretty evenly split on the issue of marriage equality.

  2. REGARDING: ... a majority of Republicans ... have promised to protect DOMA. A large majority of Americans agree with them.

    A recent poll shows that 51 percent of Americans OPPOSE DOMA, while only 34 percent favor it.

    I would like to see where you got your information, Gary.

  3. Polls mean almost nothing anymore, Tony. What matters is the ballot box and you're losing.

  4. BREAKING NEWS - A poll just released by ABC News and The Washington Post shows that support for gay marriage has grown to 53 percent today. This was a poll of registered voters.

    To be clear, I've never felt that civil rights issues should be decided by popular vote, but public support is trending in the right direction.

  5. @10:36 go ahead and take comfort in your past wins. Polls confirm what you see at the ballot box. We have lost most ballot measures, but as the polls move in our favor, we lose by less or not at all (remember Ref 71?). Let's see where we are in a few years from now.
