Gay Marriage
DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act) enacted September 21, 1996, is a United States federal law that defines marriage as the legal union of one man and one woman. Like other controversial laws (i.e., Roe v Wade, ObamaCare), the debate continues over the definition of marriage in America. To add to the debate, the Obama Justice Department has taken the very unusual stance of saying it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a federal law banning recognition of same-sex marriage. After the SCOTUS decision on ObamaCare, the Obama Administration has asked the Supreme Court for a quick review of gay marriage law. Keep up with the ongoing debate below. On June 26, 2013, The Defense of Marriage Act, the law barring the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages legalized by the states, is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-4 vote. The What you need to know about Marriage guide prepared by The Heritage Foundation answers the top 15 questions on the subject of marriage.

OUTRAGEOUS! Prof. McAdams: SUSPENDED at Marquette for Supporting Free Speech

from TFP Student Action,

Prof. John McAdams could use your moral support right now after being suspended by Jesuit-run Marquette University. He was suspended after defending a student's right to speak out in favor of God's marriage. When a Marquette philosophy student wanted to defend traditional marriage, he was told by teaching assistant Cheryl Abbate: “You don’t have a right in this class to make homophobic comments.” Prof. McAdams stood up for that student's freedom to defend marriage on his blog. Shortly after doing so, Prof. McAdams was placed under investigation, suspended and banned from campus. “You are relieved of all teaching duties and all other faculty activities,” stated Dean Richard Holz in a letter to McAdams, reported Fox News. “You are to remain off campus during this time.”
