Goddamn, this makes me angry.
Dear “defenders of marriage” on both sides of the aisle, witness the results of your relentless religious war against gay marriage (and make no mistake, it is religious in nature). This is what you’re now doing: destroying lives. Simple as that. I hope you’re happy with your efforts. Will one of you now step in to be this AIDS patient’s caregiver? Fuck, no. You just want people to live under your mindless, Bible-based rules without regard to the consequences. “Kill ’em all and let God sort ’em out”, right?
Citing the Defense of Marriage Act, the Obama administration denied immigration benefits to a married gay couple from San Francisco and ordered the expulsion of a man who is the primary caregiver to his AIDS-afflicted spouse.
Bradford Wells, a U.S. citizen, and Anthony John Makk, a citizen of Australia, were married seven years ago in Massachusetts. They have lived together 19 years, mostly in an apartment in the Castro district. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services denied Makk’s application to be considered for permanent residency as a spouse of an American citizen, citing the 1996 law that denies all federal benefits to same-sex couples.
