Black Pastors Call For AG Eric Holder's Impeachment

Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached for refusing to enforce laws against same-sex marriage, charges a coalition of black pastors who are collecting the signatures of a million people who think likewise.

The attorney general of the United States should be impeached over his repeated lawlessness in attempting to impose same-sex marriage through the nation,” said Rev. Bill Owens, president of Coalition of African American Pastors.
“It’s one thing to make a political argument that gay marriage should be the law, but it’s quite another to take actions that ignore federal law, Supreme Court rulings and the constitutions of dozens of states that have specifically rejected the redefinition of marriage which the administration is trying to impose.”
Holder and President Obama arbitrarily decided that the federal Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional and refused to defend it, as the president’s oath of office requires.
“As much as President Obama and Attorney General Holder would like it to be otherwise, we live in a democracy – with government of, by, and for the people – not a monarchy ruled by a king issuing decrees from on high,” Owens continued. “The citizens of several states who have voted overwhelmingly to preserve marriage have had their votes voided and thrown out by radical federal judges; and the Obama administration – in particular the Justice Department – has been shamefully complicit in this attack on the rights of those voters.”
The pastors’ coalition, which works to promote values of faith and family, is nonpartisan and nondenominational.
