This settles it. I am for DOMA and against the Federal Marriage Amendment. Federal law should recognize marriage as it currently does until the debate changes nationally and DOMA's second clause is rewritten.
Massachusetts should pass a constitutional amendment next week that restricts "marriage" to a union of two unrelated people (finally prohibiting first cousin marriage). "Civil unions" bring down everything that is special and wonderful about marriage to the level of a legal contract, degrading it.
We must also really crack down on the Mickey Mouse drive-through weddings they do in Vegas.
