Obama: DOMA Should Be Repealed, Lawyers Looking At 'Range Of Options'

President Obama, although he still supports civil unions over same-sex marriage, said yesterday that he believes the Defense of Marriage Act should be repealed.
"Repealing DOMA, getting ENDA a bill to protect LGBT people from discrimination done, those are things that should be done," Obama told The Advocate the night before signing Don't Ask, Don't Tell repeal into law. "I think those are natural next steps legislatively. I'll be frank with you, I think that's not going to get done in two years. We're on a three- or four-year time frame unless there's a real transformation of attitudes within the Republican caucus."

Yes, DOMA should be repealed. It should never have been made law in the first place. It's discriminatory, as was DADT. I hope President Obama is able to get it repealed and soon.
