Obama Living Up to his word!

Days like this restore my faith in my vote towards Obama. The Justice Department just announced that President Obama believes the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, and will not stand behind it any longer. Furthermore, US Senator Dianne Fienstein issued a statement Wednesday that she will be introducing a bill that would repeal the act altogether.

For those of you who don’t know, the Defense of Marriage Act was enacted in 1996 and defines Marriage as being between a man and a woman.

I think this is a huge victory. The fact that the President of our country has stated his views alone is tremendous, but that the act may also be repealed in the near future is also great.

Thanks Obamz!

Think about it.
