Defense of Marriage Act faces uncertain future as court questions law's validity 28.3.2013 The Guardian -- Front Page
Anthony Kennedy suggests Doma intrudes on states' rights, while supreme court's liberal justices paint it as discriminatory US supreme court justices strongly challenged a federal law banning recognition of same-sex marriages as discriminatory, motivated by prejudice and diminishing the power of individual states to regulate marriage. On the second day of historic hearings about gay unions, the 1996 Defence of Marriage Act (Doma) was left facing an uncertain future.

Here's Iowa's next potential candidate for U.S. Senate embarrassing his state yet again: Republican says marriage is like selling alcohol and cutting hair : Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa said Tuesday that same sex marriage should be prohibited because the government had the right to regulate human behavior. “The state’s require a marriage license,” King said. “A license is by definition a permit to do that which is otherwise illegal. Licenses are used to direct and regulate human behavior — a license to drive, a license to fish, a license to hunt, a license to cut hair, a license to do brain surgery, or a license to join the bar, or actually own a bar. And this is all ...
