It's all about the Constitution and EQUALITY for everyone. DOMA, like PROP 8 in California,*IS* unconstitutional !! Just because your religious beliefs make you believe in discrimination doesn't make the issue any less UNCONSTITUTIONAL !!

The closet case and fundierai$ing homophobes have not been able to demonstrate such a legitimate state interest regarding marriage equality.
