Crouse Appalled at Obama's Attempts to Repeal DOMA

by Staff
August 19, 2009

WASHINGTON, ( -- Word is out today that the Obama Administration has filed court papers declaring that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) discriminates against homosexuals. A Department of Justice official, Tracy Schmaler, called the DOMA "discriminatory" because it "prevents equal rights and benefits."

President Obama campaigned on a promise of repealing DOMA, and homosexual activists are angry that he has not acted to repeal the legislation. If DOMA is overturned by White House maneuvering or a federal court, every state would be forced to recognize same-sex "marriages" that are now legal in states like Massachusetts. American citizens in 30 states have rejected same-sex "marriage" initiatives.

Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, a spokesperson for Concerned Women for America, said, "The Obama Administration is at it again; they are saying one thing while doing another. While the President defends marriage publicly, his administration is working behind the scenes to undermine the DOMA through legal action -- filing court papers complaining that the bill discriminates against same-sex couples."

She added, "While the Administration is taking heat for their health care reform proposals, they are hesitant to generate more flak over same-sex 'marriage.' Court action on the issue would protect the White House and allow the president to appear above the fray of the controversial ideological and political battle."

Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
