President Obama refuses to defend marriage in court

The Obama Justice Department has decided that part of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and will not defend it in court.

"After careful consideration, including a review of my recommendation, the President has concluded that given a number of factors, including a documented history of discrimination, classifications based on sexual orientation should be subject to a more heightened standard of scrutiny," Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement.

Lets see, don't enforce Immigration Laws. Now don't enforce Marriage Law.

It's nice to be President and able to pick and choose the laws you want to defend or not defend.
