    LGBT Democrats express outrage over Obama administration defense of DOMA

    WASHINGTON -- Representatives from America’s third-largest party greeted Democrats protesting the Obama administration’s legal arguments defending the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) outside a Thursday Democratic National Committee fundraiser aimed at gay and lesbian donors, and shared with them information on the Libertarian Party’s advocacy for marriage equality.

    “The Obama administration extends their hand for donations from the LGBT community, and then slaps us in the face with the other hand with the defense of DOMA,” said Catherine Sumner, Libertarian National Committee Gay and Lesbian Policy Adviser.

    Unfortunately, GLBT political activists want more regulations and bureaucracy -all to their benefit- not less.

    how about the goverment getting out of the marriage business totally. you want a civil union recognised by the government it doesnt matter if its 2 men,2 women or a man and a woman. all become equal in government eyes. If you want a marriage that occurs in whatever church/civil ceromony you want but has no legal standing. only a civil union between 2 adults has legal meaning.

    Except that so-called "civil unions" is not gubbament getting out entirely.

    Besides, I have yet to encounter the GLBT political activist calling for complete privatization of marriage.

    Not to say that one or two of them don't exist, just that they're about as rare as a white sand beach in Michigan.

    what it does do is gets rid of the argument that gay marriage will destroy the sanctity of marriage. if " civil unions" are open to all but marriage is restricted to only what your religion approves then the government is ruiing the sanctity of marriage

    You trying to make my point for me?

    The only way this gets ironed out once and for all is to return marriage to common contract law, and out of statutory law.
