So that happened. Miss Fierce Advocate-y Pants’s DOJ (including a leftover Mormon W-appointee) has thrown my people under the bus. Again. Arguing that the Defense of Marriage Act is “reasonable” and “constitutional.”
It’s not that I don’t understand the President took an oath to uphold the laws of the land, and that he must defend them whether he agrees with them or not, but this is zealous defense of a law MFAP, in his political platform, said he wanted to repeal. Until May, anyway, when his advocacy became somewhat less fierce and the repeal of DOMA disappeared from the list of priorities.
But this shit? (more…)
