Marquette Prof Celebrates Supreme Court Decision on DOMA

A law professor at Marquette University called the Defense of Marriage Act hateful and said that the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn it is a cause for celebration.

Writing for the Marquette University’s Law School Faculty blog, visiting law professor Irene Ten Cate wrote:

For supporters of marriage equality, including myself, DOMA’s partial demise is a cause for celebration. But the Act’s trajectory should also offer occasion for introspection, especially for those whose views have“evolved” over time. How many of us were outraged by DOMA before marriage equality became a popular cause? Why did it take quite a few of us several years to see the hatefulness of DOMA that seems so obvious now?

This should hardly be a surprise as The Cardinal Newman Society reported in 2011 that then president of the university, Fr. Robert Wild, S.J., directed the Department of Human Resources to include "registered domestic partner" coverage in the Jesuit University's health insurance plans.
