North Carolina Rep Co-Sponsors DOMA Repeal Bill After State Legislature Passes Anti-Gay Amendment

Rep. Brad Miller (D-NC) has signed on as the 123rd House co-sponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act. He is also speaking out against North Carolina’s proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, saying, “This is entirely about putting on the ballot a very divisive issue for political purposes … and to try to lock in the attitudes of one generation. The amendment goes well beyond marriage and would prohibit any type of civil union legal recognition as well.” (HT: The Advocate.)
