Doing it right

I want to applaud democrats for passing what they have incorrectly called "the respect for marriage act." When a new right is created, it should be created through legislation. Most people were in favor of this and even though a Court ruling indicates that it is already the law of the land, the legislation means that it shall remain that way. The people have spoken through their elected representatives as the founders intended.
"The signing took place after a ceremony and string of performances from gay entertainers. The bill, which received support from nearly 40 House Republicans last week to send it to the president, repeals the federal Defense of Marriage Act that was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996."
The moral question about marriage is secondary and left for future generations.
It is a good day for The Constitution
