Demand that President Obama and Congress immediately repeal DOMA

DOMA is an immoral attack on same-sex couples, on families and on fundamental humanity.

This law only serves to discriminate against Americans and belittle the nation's heralded values embracing freedom, fairness and justice.

As a concerned citizen, demand that  President Obama and Congress immediately repeal this hateful law, which has left a moral scar on the nation preventing equal justice for all.

Unfortunately, the malicious and outrageous arguments and language used in the Department of Justice's marriage brief only serves to inflame and malign the humanity of same-sex couples and families.

This is unacceptable. This ugly chapter in American history must come to an end now with the repeal of DOMA.

      I, just like every little girl does, dreamt of the special day I would marry a person I absolutely loved with all of my heart, mind, and soul. Growing up, I found out that would be more difficult than I dreamt of as a child.

      Like many Americans, as well as people all over the world, I was born different; I was created by God to be a lesbian.

      I am signing this petition in hopes that one day -- and one day soon -- DOMA will be an equality attack of the past, and that I will be able to marry the woman God intended for me to marry when the time is right.

      DOMA is hurting real families, and is an immoral attack on same sex couples, on families and on fundamental humanity.
