Stand for Marriage – Honor the Law

Yesterday, President Obama did something that is unprecedented, unbelievable and un-American. He instructed our Department of Justice to completely ignore the law of the land, specifically The Defense of Marriage Act. This piece of legislation was overwhelmingly supported by the American people and by Congress and became law in 1996 during the Clinton administration.

As law, DOMA does two very important things: First of all, it protects each state from being forced to honor marriage policies from another state, particularly those who have attempted to re-define marriage. Additionally, DOMA defines marriage as only between a man and a woman (I know…who would have dreamed marriage needed a definition).

President Obama “opposes DOMA and believes it should be repealed.” That’s fine. He is entitled to his opinion, however, he does not have the authority to unilaterally make laws or disregard laws that have been enacted by Congress. In fact, the President took an oath where he promised to uphold the Constitution and to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

So what can we do? What must we do?

We must call on Congress to remind the President of his reckless and illegal behavior and force him to do the job He swore on oath before GOD and the American people to perform.

I urge you to pick up your phone immediately and call your U.S. Representative at the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. Express your outrage over this incident!

Then forward this blog to as many people as you can. Our liberty depends upon it!
