Family values

This video shows what real family values are. It also shows what a true conservative thinks, and it’s not the antique attitudes of religious extremists or the frauds interested in exploiting religion to gain political power.

Forget the rightwing talking heads on conservative radio or TV, all those nattering nabobs of negativity who push a theocracy and victimise GLBT people to get it. They’re not real or true conservatives, and they’re definitely not true family. Craig Stowel is.

Justice Department to Stop Defending Federal Law on Gay Marriage

President Obama, in a major legal policy shift, has directed the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act - the 1996 law that bars federal recognition of same-sex marriages - against lawsuits challenging it as unconstitutional.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Wednesday sent a letter to Congress to inform them that the Justice Department will now take the position in court that the Defense of Marriage Act should be struck down as a violation of gay couples' rights to equal protection under the law.

"The President and I have concluded that classifications based on sexual orientation warrant heightened scrutiny and that, as applied to same-sex couples legally married under state law" a crucial provision of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, Mr. Holder wrote.
