    A House Republican–led advisory group currently defending DOMA in multiple legal challenges had moved to dismiss Lui’s complaint. And in a five-page order issued Wednesday, U.S. district judge Stephen V. Wilson did so, writing that immigration officials did not err in their decision and that the court is bound by a 1982 case involving a Colorado gay male couple denied immigration sponsorship rights (in the rejection of the couple's petition decades ago, officials wrote that their attorney had "failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots").

    Haven't you heard? We don't have time to worry about silly nilly, unimportant things like human rights when the economy is so bad.
