Obama: Dump  Defense of Marriage Act

 & Other Promises to Gays


The Defense of Marriage Act is a law signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996 that says the federal government and individual states are not required to recognize a same-sex marriage, even if it is recognized by another state.


According to Alex Okrent's Blog and World Net Daily, Senator Obama just released an open letter concerning LGBT equality in America. Evidently his letter is designed to pull homosexual votes away from Senator Clinton by being more liberal than she is.  One sentence in the letter reads, "Unlike Senator Clinton, I support the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) a position I have held since before arriving in the U.S. Senate."


Below are some of the promises Obama makes in his letter to homosexuals.



Obama told the most recent Saddleback AIDS conference, in November, he would double foreign assistance for AIDS from $25 billion to $50 billion by 2012.  http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=44818  Article entitled "Hillary Gets Standing Ovation at Rick Warren's Summit"


According to World Net Daily, in the run-up to the recent Texas and Ohio primaries, Obama bought full-page ads in homosexual-oriented newspapers in Columbus, Cleveland, Dallas and Houston.
