Hollywood A-listers urge Obama to support gay marriage →

Just weeks after the Obama administration announced it would no longer legally defend the Defense of Marriage act, some of the president’s biggest Hollywood supporters have signed a letter urging him to go a step further and legalize same-sex marriage.

Anne Hathaway, Martin Sheen, Jane Lynch and Ellen DeGeneres are among the actors who have signed an open letter sponsored by Freedom to Marry, a New York-based advocacy group working to promote marriage rights for same-sex couples.

Tell Congress: Don't defend DOMA. Repeal it! →

This week, the Obama Administration made history by ending its defense of DOMA in the federal courts.

But just as President Obama dealt a blow to this discriminatory law, Speaker Boehner and Republican leaders could step in and begin defending it.

Anti-LGBT lawmakers are being pressured by right-wing groups to use taxpayer resources to defend this discriminatory law in court. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) and other members of Congress have already stepped in to defend DOMA in another federal court.

Republican leaders could decide within days, so we don’t have much time. Congress should be helping Americans in this struggling economy, not wasting our tax dollars to defend an unconstitutional law!

Administration Drops Defense of Discriminatory DOMA Law

February 23, 2011
Today the Obama Administration announced it won’t continue its  defense of the so-called “Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA) in court.   DOMA denies federal recognition and benefits to legally married same-sex couples and purports to allow states to deny recognition to those couples as well.
“This is a monumental decision for the thousands of same-sex couples  and their families who want nothing more than the same rights and  dignity afforded to other married couples,” said HRC President Joe  Solmonese.  “As the President has stated previously, DOMA unfairly  discriminates against Americans and we applaud him for fulfilling his  oath to defend critical constitutional principles.”
