Thanks to SFist for this post on the in-place efforts to keep the Defense of Marriage Act intact. The site is called the DOMA Defense Fund, it's part of the National Organization for Marriage, and the Prop 8 win has certainly mobilized these people. Despite the fact that Obama, Hillary and plenty of other lawmakers want the law gone, anti-gay marriage activists are still going strong. They even quote the Blade in their call to action!


The site says: "If we don't act now, DOMA will soon be repealed -- quickly, quietly and with little fanfare. It's up to us -- you and me -- to make sure the American people know that DOMA is under attack, and that our elected officials know how deeply we believe in marriage. Together we can make a difference even in Washington!"


They're asking supporters to write their lawmakers and donate money to help them spread the word. And, as the SFist post says, they're using the same lies that helped Prop 8 pass.

The blogger for SFist is the creator of Stop8.org, and he's angry that activists missed the opportunity to successfully organize and defeat Prop 8. He thinks the community is blowing another opportunity now by failing to see the proponents of DOMA as a powerful force. It's up to us to make sure President Obama doesn't forget about DOMA and his promises to repeal it.

They're organizing to protect DOMA already - Washington Blade
Yeah, gays believe in marriage too, that's why they want access to it.

If you let gays marry, suddenly you don't believe in marriage? Does marriage simply erase itself from society?

Do gays marrying somehow make the entire institution unbelievable, where Vegas quickies and sham hetero ones are shining examples of how believable it is?

God, so much stupid it hurts
