EA Joins Human Rights Campaign In Order To Oppose DOMA
More than a few companies have stepped up to oppose DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) and now, mega-game publisher Electronic Arts has tossed its hat into the ring.
The Human Rights Campaign has announced a new Business Coalition for a DOMA Repeal, and the group is comprised of no less than 13 Fortune 500 companies, EA among them.
Other companies on the list include Mariott International, Inc., Armani Exchange, and eBay, although no other game companies have signed up (yet). Any companies that are in support of this cause are against DOMA and are in favor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which recognizes all legal marriages for federal purposes. DOMA was enacted in 1996 and it specifically defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Recently, the Obama administration has found the act to be unconstitutional.
By all means, feel free to discuss but just bear in mind that I reserve the right to close any and all discussion that has started down the wrong (aka hostile) path. So just be nice.
