The DOJ will Ask Supreme Court to Uphold Marriage Equality


Big news on the gay marriage front.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Justice Department will ask the Supreme Court to uphold marriage equality for the rest of the country.

HRC blog reports:
"Once again, Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama Administration have stood up for marriage equality at a critical moment," said HRC President Chad Griffin. "As the nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court gather on Monday to evaluate several marriage equality cases for full hearing, I hope they consider two facts—that the nation is ready for marriage equality, and that there are painful consequences to inaction. Committed and loving gay and lesbian couples can't afford to wait any longer. It's time to settle this constitutional question, once and for all."
This is getting deep, folks. This Monday, SCOTUS will possibly hear the marriage equality cases from the states of Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Indiana and Wisconsin.

Will Monday be the DAY?
