Follow Your Own Advice

So the Obama administration has opted against continuing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court. It’s a good move, although we’re still a few steps away from stripping DOMA from the books. And naturally, the people who would deny a certain segment of the U.S. population equal rights just because they’re gay aren’t [...]
