Forcing "gay values" on every state

According to an e-mail I received yesterday from the Family Research Council,
No longer content to offer same-sex "marriage" to its own residents, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley filed a federal suit yesterday that would force Bay State "values" on every state in America. In a press conference yesterday, General Coakley claimed that the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violates the U.S. Constitution by interfering with states' rights to define marriage.
This is nonsense, of course. Ms. Coakley is not interested in allowed the voters of each state the right to decide--that is what DOMA is designed to do. What Ms. Coakley wants is to force all other states to accept her gay values. This is how radical gay-advocates define tolerance.

If you're going to blog about it, you should at least read up on the basics. This suit is not about the part of DOMA that allows one state to deny recognition of the marriages from another, it is only challenging the portion that prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages from states where they're legal. As usual, the Family Research Council (and other similar groups) twist the truth and people like you take them at their word and pass along false information without bothering to check the facts.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. You are right that the suit only challenges part of DOMA.

The Family Research Council (and I, following them) got it wrong. With this suit, the Massachusetts Attorney General is NOT trying to force their gay rights "values" on other states. The Massachusetts Attorney General just wants to force other states to violate their own values by requiring them to FUND Massachusetts values.
