'President Obama' could overturn marriage amendments

"If elected president, Barack Obama has promised to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, which currently means states cannot be forced to recognize homosexual marriages that are legal in other states.

"Now if that happens, that will be like removing the dam and same-sex marriage will flood across the country, notwithstanding the fact that a state even has a constitutional amendment," he contends. "A state will be required to recognize either Massachusetts or California or some other state's same-sex marriage law. That means same-sex marriage will literally rush across the borders of all 50 states"."

Gaylynne, I love your blog and everything on it! Thanks for standing up for something! Today is election day and I'm hoping for the best. Hopefully there are enough people who know the real Obama to vote accordingly. In Arizona we are voting on Prop 102 which is the amendment to keep marriage between one man and one woman. I think it will pass but what will happen if Obama becomes President? So many laws that conservatives have fought hard for will fall!!!
Thanks again! I've been looking at so many sites from your blog! Some great ones there!
