Respect gets some very welcome credence:

(Washington, D.C., October 14, 2011) -- Today, Senator Leahy announced that there would be a mark-up on the Respect for Marriage Act (S. 598), the bill that would repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, next month.

“Thousands of loving and committed couples have gotten married in New York and other states since the Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on the Respect for Marriage Act in July, and all of them are now enduring direct harms because of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and its double standard,” said Evan Wolfson, founder and President of Freedom to Marry. “It is time for Congress to repeal DOMA's discrimination, and we are pleased that Senator Leahy is moving the Respect for Marriage Act forward.”
