Statement of Rick Jacobs, founder and chair of the Courage Campaign, on today’s DOMA ruling:
“Today’s ruling is another step towards ending an unjust, unconstitutional and un-American piece of legislation. Next stop, Supreme Court. Politicians and judges have no business telling anyone who they can love and who they can marry. Today’s ruling is yet another step in this country’s movement towards equality. We applaud the ruling and will continue to work every day until efforts to legally discriminate, like DOMA and Prop 8, have been fully defeated.”
