DOMA at risk in District of Columbia

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow

In a preliminary vote, the District of Columbia city council has approved recognition of legal, same-gender "marriages" from other states. If it is approved on a second vote, the measure moves to Congress.

Congress would than have 30 days to act -- and if it reaches that stage, it would be in direct opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel does not believe that will be permitted in light of nationwide sentiment over homosexual marriage.
