One of the nation's leading gay-rights advocacy groups, the Human Rights Campaign, has formed a coalition of major companies calling for the repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
It's no surprise, of course, that the HRC in Washington would use its considerable clout to organize big businesses to fight DOMA, the law that excludes recognition of same-sex marriages.

Note: Mitt Romney has gone off and on the Marriott Board going back into the 1990s...most of the time on (just "off" when he was in campaign mode).
Of course Romney is back "on" the Marriott Board.
Romney and a LOT of Mormons -- like the Marriotts -- are just sheep-skin liberals in conservative clothing.
This is an outrage, how dare a corporation push back against the homo agenda! Oh, wait a minute.
They’ll sell their souls to make one more dollar than the competition. Repellent and despicable!
If this keeps up, social conservatives may stay at Marriot. How can we possibly prevent them for voting for Romney in 2012?
It’s great they are opposing gay marriage. It is a dreadful and disgusting shame they make huge amounts of money through PORN.
I think you might have, as I did on first take, missed the double-negative. Marriott is anti-anti gay (”against anti-gay marriage law”), ergo “pro-gay”.
Why would Social Conservatives choose a place that wants to redefine marriage? That is supporting the repeal of the DOMA?
They aren't opposing 'gay marriage'... They've come on board Human Rights Campaign corporate thrust to push it.
I can see the logic there for Mormons, because the logical next step after gay marriage is polygamy.
Of course, no surprise.
Homosexual “marriage” = leading to polygamy (a foundation of mormonism.
(psst, Marriott’s also the major hotel chain which has porn in their hotels)
“They aren’t opposing ‘gay marriage’... They’ve come on board Human Rights Campaign corporate thrust to push it.”
Oh... well, I’ve been proudly responding without reading the articles since 2000.
Guess this clears the way for a new profit center for the mormons! Gay Porn! Gay Weddings! Gay Temple ceremonies!
I predict the push for polygamy will come from Muslims. They are the Libs favored group, after all.
Would they be the libs’ favored group if they hadn’t destroyed the World Trade Center?
all the Romney loving gay scoutmasters can meet at the Marriott I guess
Good question! But Libs also like them because they are anti-Israel.
Wait, you didn’t read the article?
Another one for th boycott list
and another slap at conservatives by Romney
No, it's homosexual executives cashing office-political clout for homo-friendly corporate policies.
Enron was an early adopter, to a lot of people's surprise in Houston, back in the 1990's, of homofriendly policies that equated homosexual shackups with the institution of marriage.
Then, when Enron started to come apart, the gay-raving-friendly Houston Chronicle finally outed the No. 3 executive at Enron, Michael Koppers (they didn't want to, I promise!), because it was "germane" to the story: Koppers had steered some Enron plunder to his live-in butt-boy as a tax/auditing dodge.
Think of all the dough they can make, selling those handsome young third and fourth sons to the pallid AIDS queens of San Francisco.
Brings new worlds of meaning to the old rural custom of "spring plowing".
