The Obama administration, which came to office promising to protect gay rights but so far has not done much, actually struck a blow for the other side last week. It submitted a disturbing brief in support of the Defense of Marriage Act, which is the law that protects the right of states to not recognize same-sex marriages and denies same-sex married couples federal benefits. The administration needs a new direction on gay rights.
Mr. President I can fully appreciate that more than likely you knew nothing of this shameful motion made by your justice dept. None the less it has happened under your watch and you need to make this right.
