GOP Gives Up Defense of Marriage Act on Federal Level

"The Republican leaders in the House of Representatives are no longer planning to defend traditional marriage at the federal level.
By their own admission in a case challenging the definition of “spouse” as applied to veterans’ benefits, lawyers for the House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group, or BLAG, controlled by House Republicans, announced Thursday they will “no longer defend” the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, in federal court."


Revealing they don't have the right principles but are at best, mere pragmatism. This is why the GOP is dying, and why I refuse to be a part of their nonsense. I'd say they are cowards, but that would presume they have the right values, but are just afraid of standing up for them. I believe, though its because they are now just being more honest in action with what they already believe.
