For DOMA Reaction, Fox News Turns First To Anti-Gay Bigot Maggie Gallagher

Blog ››› ››› SIMON MALOY

Earlier this afternoon, the Department of Justice announced that it would no longer defend Section Three of the Defense of Marriage Act, following a review conducted by DOJ and the White House which found that its definition of marriage as a "legal union between one man and one woman" was unconstitutional. On Fox News' America Live, anchor Megyn Kelly reported on the announcement and then turned for reaction to National Organization for Marriage chairman Maggie Gallagher, who attacked President Obama for "an extraordinary unconstitutional measure." Gallagher was the first person from whom Fox News obtained a reaction following the DOJ release.

Gallagher is an anti-gay activist who has claimed that the legalization of same-sex marriage will lead to polygamy and represents the downfall of "American civilization." She has described same-sex marriage as a "lie about human nature" and claimed that "[p]olygamy is not worse than gay marriage, it is better," because "[a]t least polygamy, for all its ugly defects, is an attempt to secure stable mother-father families for children."
