Homosexual lobby's lawsuit to strike down federal Defense of Marriage Act heard in US District Court in Boston
Going back to most reliable method of deconstructing society
POSTED: May 12, 2010
After losing 31 elections on same-sex "marriage" across the country, the homosexual lobby is back using their most reliable method for deconstructing American society: the court system. But this time it's even more of a cakewalk.
The tax-supported "Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders" legal group (GLAD) is challenging the constitutionality of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) signed by Bill Clinton in 1993. GLAD, led by now-famous lesbian lawyer Mary Bonauto, is the group that won the infamous Goodridge case in 2003 before the Mass. SJC, which ruled in favor of same-sex "marriage."
(Note that this is a separate lawsuit from the one Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley filed against the DOMA law last July, which targets a separate section of the DOMA law. In other words, there is a two-pronged attack.)
Not exactly heavy lifting for GLAD
How easy is this for GLAD? The US District Court in Boston is one of the most liberal in the country. Judge Joseph Tauro, an elderly left-wing Nixon appointee, is the same judge who upheld the law requiring a 35-foot buffer zone around abortion clinics, ruling that it was not a First Amendment issue! The Justice Dept. lawyer defending the DOMA law told the Boston Globe that "the Obama administration agrees that the federal law is discriminatory and supports its repeal." And it's all being covered by the ultra-left Boston media.
And what about the vast majority of Americans who feel that DOMA is necessary? We all know the answer to that question.
