In which James Dobson makes good case for DOMA repeal

by Jeremy Hooper

These questions come from Focus on the Family's founder:

"And speaking of states’ rights to define marriage, wouldn’t that wreak havoc on individual families? Imagine the chaos Screen Shot 2012-05-17 At 10.40.24 Am of a couple being married in Texas but not married in Arkansas, or being married in Arizona and not married in Massachusetts. Children in one state would be legitimate, but would be the product of unmarried parents in the next. And what about the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts? Could they continue to override the will of the people, as did the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California? And what about inheritance issues from state to state?"

Jim Dobson, writing for WorldNetDaily

Right, Mr. Dobson—We need a consistent marriage policy. We gay folk need to protect our families in every state and federally. This means repealing the Defense of Marriage Act. Glad you agree!

Sans that whole "will of the people" part, I couldn't have better stated the inadequacies myself.
