What To Expect March 27th On The Us Supreme Court Doma Ruling

03.08.13 | Sarah Harnisch

The man that wrote the Defense of Marriage Act, which protects marriage between a man and a woman, says he wants it overturned. Former President Bill Clinton wrote an op-ed piece for the Washington Post this week. In it, he said when he penned the bill in 1996, he said then the legislation should not be used to discriminate. But now he says "the law itself is discriminatory and should be overturned." Christians say it's a critical barrier to save traditional marriage and biblical values in America.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider it later this month. New Yorkers For Constitutional Freedom's Jason McGuire said if the court overturns DOMA, it could go one of two ways. "They may say you must recognize same sex marriage in every state in the nation. Or they may simply lift the federal definition. It's really going to be contingent upon the court. But there are tremendous ramifications regardless of how what the court is going to do, for how society views marriage and the importance of a mother and father in the rearing of children."
