Crouse Appalled at Obama's Attempts to Repeal DOMA
August 19, 2009
WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Word is out today that the Obama Administration has filed court papers declaring that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) discriminates against homosexuals. A Department of Justice official, Tracy Schmaler, called the DOMA "discriminatory" because it "prevents equal rights and benefits."
President Obama campaigned on a promise of repealing DOMA, and homosexual activists are angry that he has not acted to repeal the legislation. If DOMA is overturned by White House maneuvering or a federal court, every state would be forced to recognize same-sex "marriages" that are now legal in states like Massachusetts. American citizens in 30 states have rejected same-sex "marriage" initiatives.
Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, a spokesperson for Concerned Women for America, said, "The Obama Administration is at it again; they are saying one thing while doing another. While the President defends marriage publicly, his administration is working behind the scenes to undermine the DOMA through legal action -- filing court papers complaining that the bill discriminates against same-sex couples."
She added, "While the Administration is taking heat for their health care reform proposals, they are hesitant to generate more flak over same-sex 'marriage.' Court action on the issue would protect the White House and allow the president to appear above the fray of the controversial ideological and political battle."
