Promoting Stronger Marriages

Do you support a U.S. constitutional amendment to define and protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman?

McCain: No
Obama: No

If you do not support a U.S. constitutional amendment to define and protect marriage now, would any of these hypothetical future circumstances allow you to support such amendment?

*if one or several state supreme courts require their states to recognize same-sex marriages from another state.

McCain: Yes
Obama: No

*if the U.S. Supreme Court requires states to recognize same-sex marriages from another state (thus overturning a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act)

McCain: Yes
Obama: No

*if the U.S. Supreme Court requires the federal government to recognize same-sex marriages and/or partnerships for any purpose under federal law (thus overturning a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act)

McCain: Yes
Obama: No

*if the U.S. Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is a right under the U.S. Constitution

McCain: Yes
Obama: No

The Federal Defense of Marriage Act (1996) declares marriage to be the union of one man and one woman for all purposes of the federal government and declares that states do not have to recognize same-sex marriages from other states. Which of the follow describes your position on the federal DOMA?

*I would veto any bill that would weaken any provision of the federal DOMA

McCain

*I would support repeal of the provision of DOMA that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman for all federal purposes, thus freeing the federal government to give marital benefits to same-sex couples.

Obama

*I would support repeal of the provision of DOMA that declares states do not have to recognize same-sex marriages from other states, thus leaving courts free to require such recognition under the Constitution’s “full faith and credit” clause.

There is not a single item in here about actually promoting stronger marriages. This is entirely focused on removing the civil rights of American citizens.
