|Is Marriage Equality Real? Imgae by Larry1732 via Flcker|
DOMA was killed in 2011 by the Obama administration.
Makes sense - you have to destroy the law that states that there is no such thing as marriage equality. Then you can create any other marriage equality law you want to get the votes you need to remain President for another four years.

Let's just leave politics and religion aside and examine if sane-sex marriage can be equal to opposite sex marriage. In fact one guy decided to do just that. Last month Dr. Mark Regnerus of the Population Research Center of the University of Texas in Austin, published his findings.
His study graphically illustrates the differences between different types of same sex families against intact traditional families in terms of the impact on children.
Regnerus et al actually show that the best environment to develop a child is an intact marriage between a man and a woman. The benefits for a child in such a marriage are:
- highest employment potential
- lowest substance abuse
- lowest criminal behavior
- lowest sexual abuse
- lowest mental conditions
- highest relationship quality

With such data, you would presume everybody would be silenced. In fact Regnerus is being assailed by the LGBT segment...
Here's a shocker - the paragon of liberal thinking, the New York Times, had in June 2012 reported that,
Here's the above article's headline paraphrased by another publication...
When the NYT publishes reports that disturb the comfort zone of LGBT people, then you know that everything's not fine at the Western Front.
