In a stunning act of defiance against the rule of law, Attorney General Eric Holder recently addressed a gathering of state attorneys-general and essentially invited the gathered to ignore state laws banning same-sex marriage.
Imagine that. The Attorney General of the United States advising attorneys-general from the states to ignore the law based on his and the President’s political bias and leftist ideology!
And to hell with the rule of law as codified by elected officials of we the people in accordance with Democratic principles!
Has there ever been a more contemptible, out-of-touch person in government, other than The One with the Pen and Phone obsession who views the Congress, the Constitution, and laws he disagrees with as unwelcome intrusions into his personal right to rule by tyrannical fiat?
According to a coalition of black pastors, Holder’s latest outrage is sufficiently untoward as to justify an aggressive plan for impeachment of the AG who already holds the dishonor of being held in contempt of the US House of Representatives.
As reported at the reference in part:
A coalition of black pastors announced on Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. that they are launching a campaign to gather one million signatures on a petition calling for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder for violating his oath of office by trying “to coerce states to fall in line with the same-sex ‘marriage’ agenda.”
“President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have turned their backs on the values the American people hold dear, values particularly cherished in the black community: values like marriage, which should be strengthened and promoted, rather than weakened and undermined,” says a statement by the Coalition of African American Pastors that has been posted online with their impeachment petition.
“Our nation calls for the building up of a healthier marriage culture; instead, our elected leaders are bent on destroying marriage, remaking it as a genderless institution and reorienting it to be all about the desires of adults rather than the needs of children,” says the coalition.
“In pursuing this intention, the president and his administration are trampling the rule of law. Attorney General Holder in particular has used the influence of his office and role as the chief law enforcement figure in our nation to try to coerce states to fall in line with the same-sex ‘marriage’ agenda,” says the coalition. :Millions of voters in 30 states have voted to defend marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but Attorney General Holder is attempting single-handedly to throw those votes away!
“For abandoning the oath he swore in taking office and his duty to defend the common good, Attorney General Holder should be impeached by Congress,” says the coalition. “CAAP is calling on all men and women of good will to sign the following petition urging Congress to take action against the Attorney General’s lawlessness today!”
The Rev. Bill Owens, founder and president of CAAP, said that political leaders in Washington have not held Holder accountable.”
Holder and Obama generally scream “racist” at those who disagree with their crazy ideas.
This time, the complaints come from African-Americans of faith and morality!
So what is the excuse this time, Eric and Barack?
