U. S. Senate Judiciary Committee Hearings on Defense of Marriage Act

For those who support individual rights, and everyone who reads this blog should, the U. S. Senate Judiciary Committee is holding the first hearings ever on repealing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Rep. John Lewis, a Democrat, has stated, “I find it unbelievable in the year 2011,that there is still a need to hold hearings and debates about whether a human being should be able to marry the person they love.” But the Republicans, lead by Charles Grassley, with a continuing desire to control peoples lives as if they were characters in an Orwellian novel, are fighting in defense of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) Act.

Here is a video of recently elected Democrat Al Franken putting the smack down on one of Grassley’s witnesses.
