Attorney General Eric Holder announced last week that the federal government would recognize all same-sex marriages legally performed regardless of where the couple lives after getting married. The American Family Association is demanding his impeachment and weirdly seems to think it has something to do with states’ rights.
United States Attorney General Eric Holder, this week, has again overstepped the boundaries of the law when he arbitrarily ordered that homosexual couples will now receive government benefits reserved only for natural marriage status. This applies even in states that have laws defining marriage as only between one man and one woman.
Taking a nod from the playbook of his boss, President Barack Obama, Holder wielded his own pen and paper, trampling on states’ rights and disenfranchising voters in states defining marriage as only between one man and one woman.
It is time for Eric Holder to go!
It is the sworn duty of every member of Congress to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Allowing Eric Holder to remain in office unchallenged is a violation of that duty. Action must be taken to stop the abuse of power in the attorney general’s office.
No, not so much. It doesn’t have anything even vaguely to do with states’ rights (which is a nonsense phrase, by the way). It doesn’t affect anything at all at the state level. It affects only federal recognition. It also has nothing to do with disenfranchising voters. The voters in a state cannot deny federal benefits to someone within that state, for crying out loud. Lies, lies, lies, all intended to keep that money flowing in.
