People For The American Way Launches

People For The American Way has launched a petition website called Dump DOMA. Go to the site and send your demands to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid that both houses of Congress immediately begin working to repeal the Defense Of Marriage Act. From the site:

* would be a repudiation of the forces of hate and division who have long pushed to enshrine discrimination further in federal law.
* would mean federal recognition of all marriages in states like Massachusetts and Connecticut - including the marriages of same-sex couples.
* would stop the government from selectively withholding the 1,300 or so legal protections that only legal civil marriage affords.
* would remove a discriminatory blemish from federal law, sending a powerful moral message.
