NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE THANKS SPEAKER BOEHNER FOR STANDING UP FOR DOMA
Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), responds to House Speaker John Boehner’s comments today on the Defense of Marriage Act:
"This is a great win for marriage, for democracy and for our Constitutional processes. We are grateful to Speaker Boehner and to the GOP leadership for standing up for the federal Defense of Marriage Act, and for the prerogatives of Congress. President Obama's radical decision to dump the defense of DOMA is not only bad politics, it is going to backfire tactically. With the House intervening, we will finally get lawyers in that courtroom who are trying to win this case--and we are confident that in the end DOMA will be upheld by the Supreme Court."
