      • Edie Windsor and the ACLU Challenge the Defense of Marriage Act

        Check out: aclu.org/DOMA The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is a federal law passed in 1996 that both created a federal definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman and expressly gave states permission to refuse to recognize marriages entered into by same-sex couples in other jurisdictions. The part of DOMA that defines marriage at the federal level – known as Section 3 – was a radical departure from 220 years of federal practice, which was to rely on each state to define marriage and to recognize any marriage legally entered into under state law as a valid marriage for federal purposes. We are challenging Section 3 of DOMA on behalf of our client Edie Windsor in Windsor v. United States, which is currently pending before the Supreme Court of the United States. In June, the Court will rule on whether DOMA violates equal protection by treating married gay couples as unmarried in over 1,100 federal programs.

          Street performance of a local community cultural group, Kapisanan ng mga Mandudula sa Marikina (KMM), at the Holy Week Kalbaryo ng Maralita (Calvary of the Poor), March 25, 2013. Actors marched and performed in front of the Philippine Supreme Court as part of the "Stations of the Cross". Their voices battle with blaring car horns, revving engines and other traffic noise to get their message across -- "the modern-day passion of Christ leads to the people's struggle for social change." Street plays are part a people's cultural movement in the Philippines. Religious iconography has been particularly studied and used from the anti-colonial struggle of the Filipino people up to the present.

                    (Enzo/U.S./Argentina -- Andres/Uruguay) -- Brooklyn, NY: In 1996, Andres received the highest rank that a Mormon missionary could achieve because he was an expert on promoting the Proclamation of the Family, which defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman.
