Who the hell cares? According to National Organization for Marriage (as proxy for the Roman Catholic Bishops):

than enforcing our nation’s laws and offering a true, workable solution.
First, his Administration threw in the towel and refused to defend the
Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Then, he came out of the closet on gay
marriage. Now, he is apparently proposing a direct violation of DOMA,
currying added favor with gay activists, many of whom have lavished
contributions on his reelection campaign. …
And … and … and … Mitt Romeny signed the NOM pledge and he lost. Funny how Obama is doing pretty much what he said he would do to get elected and then reelected.
