« CD REVIEW and GIVEAWAY: Kelis' "Flesh Tone" | Main | WATCH: Mass. AG Martha Coakley on "Maddow" and DOMA Ruling »

This is fantastic!

DOMA will be struck down in my lifetime!

I'll make sure of that!


they'll appeal and have some sort of lame reason why it's necessary to appeal claiming they don't really want to nor support the unconstitutionality of the Act. blah blah blah.

I particularly like what he wrote in his opinion:

"To further divide the class of married individuals into those with spouses of the same sex and those with spouses of the opposite sex is to create a distinction without meaning."

Wow. 40 or 50 comments on Tyler Perry and only 2 or 3 on this. Hundreds of comments on this at the other gay blogs and the silence here is deafening. I guess everyone here knows what is going to happen.


OK, the President said he had to follow the law when it comes to DOMA and DADT. Now that a portion has been declared Unconstitutional, with the DOJ now ACTIVELY pursue this or let it stand. This is where we will see the hypocrisy should they decide to appeal.

How many want to bet that DOJ will appeal because this is an election season and they are afraid of the right.

The government is under NO obligation to appeal something declared unconstitutional but of course they will because Democrats don't want this issue this year. Or next, or in 2012 or in 2016.

And yes, I would assume that's why it's so quiet here because most of us can see how this will play out. And it's total bullcrap because Obama claims to be againsty DOMA but Congress and Obama (or any Dem president) won't repeal DOMA anytime soon and our only hope is in the courts. But of course the White House will keep fighting any DOMA lawsuit, especially these two because they are such strong cases.

This will set up an interesting scenario: Obama the Constitutional scholar vs. Obama the politician, with the midterm election in the balance. It's going to be quite a summer, especially if a higher federal court upholds Tauro's decision.
