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.

from Texas Values,

Picture this nightmare with me. One day a reporter walks in to your pizza joint and casually asks a hypothetical question about that controversy up the road in the capital. Would you serve a gay customer? You answer just as casually: sure––you serve everybody. Would you cater a gay wedding? Well... probably not. That’s participating in something against your Christian faith. Not that you’ve ever been asked. No one orders pizza for weddings. Within hours, it is being reported that your shop is “The State’s First Business to Publicly Deny Same-Sex Service.” Your phone rings with a death threat––then dozens more. News trucks gather outside your window. They’re joined by a mob snarling hateful slogans. On the national news, celebrities condemn you by name. Gay pornography, obscenities, and threats flood your website and Facebook page. On social media, a high-school coach invites others to help burn your business down. Two days later, you’re forced to close, not sure if your business will ever reopen. You flee with your family into hiding. Your lives literally in danger.
