Here’s a story you may have missed with all of the controversy and demonstrations going on in the Middle East:

From Reuters

The U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday asked the Supreme Court to consider two additional legal challenges to a federal law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman, after submitting similar cases for review in July.

The two petitions filed by the department urge the high court to consider at least one gay marriage case in the near future to determine whether Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act violates legally married same-sex couples’ rights by treating them differently than heterosexual couples.

Response: This is the second time in the last couple of months that the Obama justice Department has asked the Supreme Court to shoot down DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act).

Since Obama became president his administration has repeatedly refused to support DOMA which is suppose to be their job since it is presently the law of the land. It was originally submitted by President Clinton and overwhelmingly passed by the Congress.

Now that President Obama has come out for gay marriage and it has been put in the Democratic Party platform for this election, the administration is now leading the way and trying to pressure the Supreme Court to give a ruling that will legally bring down traditional marriage in America.

DOMA still stands in the way of same-sex marriage being declared legal and recognized by the Federal government across the whole country and not just in the states that have passed it. My sense is that the Supremes will take their time on this one and should be encouraged not to over rule passed legislation by judicial fiat. This issue is too important for a few judges to make the ultimate decision on. The people should continue to have their say on this issue state by state.             *Top
