Homosexual activists file suit, challenge DOMA

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow

Homosexual activists filed suit yesterday against the federal Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA. The lawsuit -- filed in Boston by the group Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) on behalf of several homosexual "couples" and three individuals -- asks a federal judge to declare unconstitutional portions of the measure which places the traditional view of marriage into law. In the suit, GLAD argues that Section 3 of DOMA "creates a system of first- and second-class marriages" in which the former receive all federal legal protections, while the latter are denied them -- "even while taking on the responsibilities of legal marriage."
