EA steps up opposition against law that prevents gay marriage
EA steps up opposition against law that prevents gay marriage
January 29, 2013 | By Mike Rose




Newsbrief: Last year, numerous video game companies banded together to oppose the United States' Defense of Marriage Act. Now Electronic Arts has gone a step further, joining the Human Rights Campaign in a stand against DOMA.

The act defines marriage as the legal union between one man and one woman, and stands as one of the largest obstacles against gay marriage in the country. EA says that DOMA is discriminatory, hurts morale, and even creates some uncomfortable tax issues within its organization.

EA is now part of "The Business Coalition for DOMA Repeal", a coalition movement against the act which includes companies like Marriott, eBay and Thomson Reuters. The organization wants marriage equality for everyone through the proposed "Respect for Marriage Act."
