Here’s another of those amusing “WND Exclusive” stories. An exclusive story about the Supreme Court’s marriage rulings? Every news outlet in the country has a story about it. You mean this particular story is “exclusive”? Then isn’t every story “exclusive”? Anyway, they repeat this tired lie:
President Obama had refused to defend DOMA, which was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996. The provision simply said that for federal purposes, such as benefits, marriage is limited to a man and a woman.
However, Obama, and his attorney general, Eric Holder, announced they would not defend it as their oaths of office require.
Mathew Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel, warned that the president’s stance itself is a dangerous precedent.
Striking DOMA, he said, “would set the precedent that the president can pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce and which ones he does not.”
That, he said, would make a president an “autocratic dictator” by default, as he no longer would be bound by his oath of office to enforce all laws. If a president didn’t like the tax code, for example, he could order federal agents not to enforce it.
They just lie. Constantly.
