Respect for Marriage Act Debuts and The 2M4M WingNuts are Freaking Out

(Hat tip to Kerry Eleveld - via Americablog)

Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York, flanked by out representatives Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin and Jared Polis of Colorado as well as a wide swath of LGBT advocacy groups -- held a press conference Tuesday to announce the introduction of the Respect for Marriage Act, legislation that would fully repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

“Today, we celebrate the first step toward overturning the Defense of Marriage Act and sending that ugly law into the history books where it belongs," said Nadler, adding that the new RMA bill has 91 original cosponsors.

As Representative Baldwin put it at the press conference, "The legislation we're introducing today will legally extend to legally married same-sex couples the same federal rights and recognitions now offered to heterosexual couples -- nothing more, nothing less."
Mean while over at Wing-Nut Central, the "2M4M" group (I swear I didn't make that name up), is panicking at the prospect. Their website screams that a "zealous network of Hollywood liberals and gay activists" is trying to indoctrinate children into their sinister gay agenda.

The irony here is attempting to repeal DOMA could actually turn out to be something that helps pass Health Care Reform.

The Respect for Marriage Act, has no chance of passing. The sad truth is the Democrats in Congress are spineless, gutless wonders, who are apparently terrified of doing anything that might anger Glen Beck. But on the upside this bill might get the "Teabaggers" (no comment...) so riled up that it could distract them from their hate-fueled quest to kill meaningful Health Care Reform.
