As many of you have probably read elsewhere, a few weeks ago President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder stated that the Justice Department would no longer defend the third act of DOMA in court. While this is not the end of the federal law, it is an important step towards equal rights. However, the resulting conversation has startled me for many reasons.
Instead of rambling about my personal beliefs, I will direct you to Henry Rollins new editorial for Vanity Fair.
Rollins has always been very vocal about his opinions, so his harsh language is not surprising. (If you do not believe me, watch this.)
I salute his efforts to increase tolerance and change. Whether we like it or not, our society will have to adapt to remain relevant. If nothing else, the increase in spending for marriage licenses, weddings and honeymoons could boost our fledgling economy.
