Proffesuh, would you like your piss stirred or shaken? In any case, you might lay off whatever other sauce you’re kin to because you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.
With minor nuance, ALL of the positions of Hillary, Obama, and Edwards on gay-related issues about which they have each stated a position are IDENTICAL. I dare anyone to prove me wrong.
Our Golden Showers Queen is blowing his own urethra when he claims that Hillary “still supports DOMA.”
There are three parts to federal DOMA. One defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Another says states don’t have to recognize same gender relationships legalized in other states if they don’t want to [but, de facto, could if they want]. The third part says that no federal benefits, e.g., tax breaks, can be given to same gender couples.
Each of the three leads, including Hillary endorse repeal of that section and offering federal benefits to same gender couples. Realization of that would, by necessity, require the repeal of the definition clause.
The part that the willingly blind Hillary Haters stumble on [given a strong push by the Obama campaign particularly] is her having said that she believes the states rights aspect is one that might be retained. Edwards would repeal the section BUT his position in that regard is moot because he still believes it “should be up to the states to decide.”
Obama bashes Hillary on Section 2 but his campaign has also said that he, too, though he is for repealing Section 2, still believes in protecting what it says: that the states should be able to deny marriage equality if the want. In short, with or without federal DOMA, the three leads positions are functionally the same.
Further, all of the attention Section 2 is getting is a fool’s argument anyway because it is a straw issue as it were. All but about 4 states have enacted their own bans on having to recognize residents’ relationships from out-of-state making federal DOMA’s Section 2 superfluous and, thus, its repeal meaningless.
Access to federal benefits is what needs enacted and, again, Hillary and Obama and Edwards each support that.
