Has Your Position Changed on Same Sex Marriage?

The Supreme Court is hearing arguements for and against DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, approved in 1996 and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

In short, Section Three prevents the federal government from recognizing any same sex marriages for federal programs even if the couple married legally in their state! DOMA also says that states do not have to legally acknowledge the same sex marriage performed in another state. Under the Constitution, all people have equal rights.

So, does DOMA discriminate against gays and lesbians? There is a GLAD rally tomorrow (March 26) outside of City Hall in Boston, and here is more info on that.
