On Tuesday, a Second Circuit court judge ruled that the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act violates the equal protection in the Constitution, and thus should be overturned. As Judge Vanessa Bryant – who is a Bush appointee – argued that “no conceivable rational basis exists for the provision.”
Judge Bryant’s ruling is just the latest in a string of recent court rulings overturning DOMA. Yet Republicans continue to cling to discrimination. Speaker of the House John Boehner is still using taxpayer dollars to defend DOMA in courts.
Time for the dinosaurs in the Republican Party to evolve and embrace marriage equality in the 21st century.
