Congressional liberals, armed with a new homosexual lobbying group’s poll on the Defense of Marriage Act, are going to introduce bills to repeal DOMA. If their efforts succeed, both the federal government and states WITH marriage amendments could eventually be forced to recognize homosexual “marriages” performed in states like Massachusetts.
Armed with a fresh poll showing that most Americans back them, Democrats in both the House and Senate will mount a coordinated attack Wednesday on the Defense of Marriage Act.
In the House, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Rep. John Conyers, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, will join the chamber’s four openly gay members – Reps. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and David Cicilline (D-R.I.) – in introducing a bill to repeal DOMA, the 1996 law which bars the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
