Interfaith Group Urged Speaker of the House to Defend DOMA in Court


The news is developing fast but we did not want to miss this signification action taken by an interfaith coalition:

"Administration’s decision to abandon DOMA was ‘lapse in judgment’ - House must join litigation fully to ‘defend true meaning of marriage’"

Leaders of Catholic, Protestant and Sikh communities of faith—together representing tens of millions of adherents—joined together to urge the U.S. House of Representatives to fight for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in federal courts, in a March 3 letter to Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), Speaker of the House of Representatives. (source)

Speaker Boehner has indeed announced that he is taking action to defend DOMA.
