In the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996, it is stated:
Section 3. Definition of marriage
In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word 'marriage' means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word 'spouse' refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.
Yet, the Obama administration announced in 2011 that it had determined that Section 3 was unconstitutional and, though it would continue to enforce the law, it would no longer defend it in court.
Why should gay marriage be bound to a law that our own presidential administration states is unconstitutional? We fight for our freedoms. Some men and women in the military, and on our homefronts in the law enforcement, fire department, and EMS departments, are bi-sexual, lesbian, or gay.
For many years now government has been blaming religion on why they will not pass the the bill pertaining to homosexuals getting married. As i recall religion is legally separated by legal issues and this is a legal issue.
I would like to legalize this issue because it staes in the constitution that all men are craeted equal. It does not say all straight men.
