Video: Senator Sessions says decision not to defend Doma "cannot be justified"

 

From the Senator's YouTube Channel: "Senator [Jeff] Sessions, a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sharply questioned Donald Verrilli, Jr, the nominee to be Solicitor General of the United States. Sessions strongly expressed his views on how the Department of Justice recently handled the Defense of Marriage Act."

Here are three easy ways we can defend DOMA - make Sen. Sessions happy!

  1. Donate to help us take the message of marriage to millions of Americans from coast to coast.
  2. Sign the petition, sending an email urging your congressman to stand for marriage as a co-sponsor of House Concurrent Resolution 25.
  3. Share with your friends. Help spread the word via FacebookTwitterthrough your own blog or website.

    I am glad that we have at least one Sen. telling it like it is. I still think more should be questioned in what the president has been doing . Also , yes we the people do want to see his birth record., Dont you?

    This video explains why Pres. Obama thought he could simply declare DOMA Section 3 unconstitutional - meaning that it contradicts part of the constitution, and he went ahead to say which part.

    So, it is evident Holder, Jr. the Attorney General did not stand up to the President and risk getting fired, telling him DOMA is a law, CAN be defended, and has to be defended.

    After all, just my personal reading: DOMA stands for Defense of Marriage Act. In my simple reading: therefore enforcement of a defense (of marriage act) IS a defense of the law. Obama says he will enforce it - well, then enforce it by acting on its defense. There are no tow ways about it. And if defending it is unconstitutional, then so is enforcing it.

    I guess i am too dumb for i see "the President has no clothes on...."
