Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the U.S. Department of Justice will no longer defend DOMA, Holder said in his statement:

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. The President has also concluded that Section 3 of DOMA, as applied to legally married same-sex couples, fails to meet that standard and is therefore unconstitutional. Given that conclusion, the President has instructed the Department not to defend the statute in such cases. I fully concur with the President’s determination.

I’m not sure I can say anything that I haven’t already said before.  It’s not a surprise.  President Barack Obama’s “personal belief” that marriage is between one man and one woman that he expressed during 2008 was a sham.  He thinks when life begins was above his pay grade, but evidently has no problem deciding on the definition of marriage.

Since he believes section 3 of DOMA applied to legally married same-sex couples, what does he think about a federal judge’s ruling that California’s constitution was unconstitutional?  Hmm….
