Tech companies applaud overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act

“Apple strongly supports marriage equality and we consider it a civil rights issue. We applaud the Supreme Court for its decisions today,” an Apple spokesman told AllThingsD in a statement.

    Except that DOMA Was NOT overturned! Jesus, people, is it really that hard to get this right?

    The only thing overturned was the part of the law that made the federal government discriminate against couples in benefits. (And they refused to hear an appeal on Prop 8.)

    The rest of DOMA– the part that prohibits state recognition of gay marriages that occur in other states– is still in force.

    And here we are 20 years after Bill Clinton with %75 of the Democrats on board FORCED this criminal act onto us, and we get a barely partial repeal of it… and everyone — including the hypocrite Bill Clinton– is celebrating….

    Frankly, I believe in liberty but it’s hard to when people seem so desperate to be enslaved.

    Where’s our real resistance and fighting back against DOMA?
