Please file under "About F-ing Time": Obama Administration/Justice Department moves against "Defense" of Marriage Act

From Huffington Post:

The Obama administration filed court papers Monday claiming a federal marriage law discriminates against gays, even as government lawyers continued to defend it.

Justice Department lawyers are seeking to dismiss a suit brought by a gay California couple challenging the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. The administration’s response to the case has angered gay activists who see it as backtracking on campaign promises made by Barack Obama last year.

In court papers, the administration said it supports repeal of the law.

It’s about time the Obama administration did something about the discrimination against same sex couples in the US. Let’s see where this leads, if anywhere.
