Even though all of NOM's bald-faced lies about the evils of same-sex marriage have been shot down by every legitimate researcher on the planet, House Republicans won't let that stop them from blocking DOMA repeal, which a majority of Americans now support.
House Speaker John "Snooki" Boehner defended the use of tax-payer money in another effort by the GOP to justify discrimination against LGBT Americans at a news conference Thursday:
“There are a lot of committees, a lot of hearings," Boehner said. "As I made it clear from the beginning of this year, the committee process is important to this institution, and I think addressing any question — serious question — in American society is legitimate.”
The Washington Blade reports:
Michael Cole-Schwartz, spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign, said in response to Boehner’s remarks that the upcoming hearing will “no doubt showcase the [Republican] majority’s obsession with ensuring continued discrimination against same-sex couples.”How's that job creation thing workin' for ya, Snooks?

“They’re welcome to think that’s a legitimate way to spend their time but the vast majority of Americans will be scratching their heads wondering why House Republicans have held a third hearing in as many weeks to demonize LGBT people,” Cole-Schwartz said.
Cole-Schwartz was counting two earlier hearings that House committees held to oversee implementation of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal as anti-gay hearings and the upcoming testimony on “defending marriage” as the third anti-gay hearing this year.
