Repeal of DOMA

It strikes me as rather unlikely that Nadler’s bill will pass, but it should.

I still owe TAS readers an explanation of why and how I’ve changed my thinking on the subject of gay marriage. (I used to favor a generous civil unions law at the state level; I’d now support a same-sex marriage law, also at the state level. That’s only a small click to the left, but it’s a very significant one for a lot of people – and I understand why both sides of the issue find it significant.) But I have always, so far as I can recall, supported the repeal of DOMA, and the return of this question to the states, where it properly belongs.
