Number one anti-“gay marriage” group now supports civil unions – time to pass national law

If the most virulently anti-“gay marriage” group of the religious religious right is now in favor of civil unions, then we should ask the US congress to immediately pass a nationwide civil unions law.  At the very least, civil unions should now be exempted from DOMA (which requires the law to be amended), and it calls into question local DOMA laws that ban, or would ban, civil unions – again, if the number one religious right group that opposes gay marriage is now for civil unions, clearly banning them in the states is too extremist even for Republicans.  Also, we should now be using this as evidence that every state that has a DOMA law on the books should be forced to pass civil unions, now.
