What’s he caterwauling about today? This:
The president of a group dedicated to exposing the homosexual activist agenda thinks President Obama should be impeached for ignoring the law and ordering Blue Cross Blue Shield to provide coverage for the same-gender “spouse” of a federal worker.
Amy C. Cunninghis, the “wife” of Karen Golinski, a federal court employee in California, was previously denied coverage. The new position follows a ruling from U.S. District Judge Jeffrey S. White of San Francisco declaring that the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) “unconstitutionally discriminates against same-sex married couples”
Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) tells OneNewsNow the directive was in a letter from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, instructing the insurance provider to “implement an expeditious enrollment of Ms. Cunninghis.”
“This is another shocking act by the Obama administration, which has got to be the most arrogant and Constitution-abusing president in America’s history,” he decides. “The Obama administration didn’t like the Defense of Marriage Act, which was passed by Congress [and] signed into law by then-President Clinton, and so now they’re just ignoring it and blatantly disregarding it.”
“I believe that President Obama should be impeached on this alone,” he suggests. “He’s not dictator of the United States of America; he’s president, and he can’t just ignore the law, ignore the Constitution, to pander to his homosexual activist base.”
Right, see, civics lesson for Porno Pete real quick: the fact that the law was passed and signed by another president does not mean it’s constitutional. Obama’s Justice Department has determined that the law is, in fact,unconstitutional. The courts, every time they have a chance to speak on the matter, also suggest that the law as written and enacted is unconstitutional. This conclusion is actually not hard to reach, even if you’re a wingnut. A person need only understand the meaning of Full Faith & Credit to realize that DOMA flies in the face of the US Constitution. That’s why the law is dying a much-too-slow but inevitable death.
