Sign the petition to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

Repealing this Act:
1) would be a repudiation of the forces of hate and division who have long pushed to enshrine discrimination further in federal law.

2) would mean federal recognition of all marriages in states like Massachusetts and Connecticut - including the marriages of same-sex couples.

3) would stop the government from selectively withholding the 1,300 or so legal protections that only legal civil marriage affords.

4) would remove a discriminatory blemish from federal law, sending a powerful moral message.

Obama says he supports the repeal. Signing the petition is one way to push Congress into starting the legislative process. Let's let the Democrats know that we intend to stay on top of the things we believe are important and that it will not be business as usual. The electorate is awake, pissed off and watching...
