Obama and Gay Marriage

Well, President Obama is now calling for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. In the following news story his administration states that they see it as discriminatory. On a side note, I am pleased to hear that his administration has rightly used the justice department to defend DOMA. The justice department is constitutionally obligated to defend the law, not to seek its repeal. So, I am thankful the administration understands the proper constitutional process for dealing with DOMA. I just wish the President was not seeking to repeal it in Congress (although at least I can say that Congress is the proper branch of government for such discussions).
