And the families of those serving in our military.

20 lashes with a wet noodle for forgetting to include them as well. It breaks my heart what that one servicewoman's family is going through.(Terminal cancer)

To me there are 3 main parts of the U.S. Constitution that are being ignored under DOMA.

Article 6, Amendments 9 and 14.

Make that 4 parts. I forgot the 1st Amendment and religious freedom.

Any relationship outside a man and a woman is a form of excess and perversion. Do for one and do for all.

Wow! It doesn't take very long for a left leaning moral defective fanny bandit to use such a tragedy for their own infantile little world. And Oh..... what a 'little' world it is and will be.
