NOM Wants Congress to Overturn D.C.'s New Marriage Law

December 15, 2009
Joe Sudbay writes that the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage has said that they want the U.S. Congress to overturn the marriage equality law that was recently approved by the Washington, D.C. city council. NOM:
It's time for Congress to step up and restore the rule of law in the District of Columbia. If the DC Government is going to trample the rights of their citizens, Congress must intervene, invalidating the marriage equality bill unless or until the Council agrees to respect the rights of DC voters to bring an initiative petition.
D.C.'s Human Rights laws prevents public votes on any issue "that authorizes discrimination." NOM's sole mission is to foster discrimination against gay Americans. [Link]
