“Today’s ruling by a federal judge, invalidating Texas’ ban on same-sex marriage, is a troubling display of judicial activism. Our Constitution leaves it to the States to define marriage, and unelected judges should not be substituting their own policy views for the reasoned judgments of the citizens of Texas, who adopted our marriage law directly by referendum.

The Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder, a man who is supposed to faithfully uphold the laws of the land, has just called on state Attorney’s General to ignore defending or enforcing laws they don’t like. In his speech to state AG’s this week, Holder was specifically targeting laws that ban same-sex weddings in 31 states.
“I support traditional marriage. Under President Obama, the federal government has tried to re-define marriage, and to undermine the constitutional authority of each state to define marriage consistent with the values of its citizens,” said Sen. Cruz. “The Obama Administration should not be trying to force gay marriage on all 50 states.
Attorney General Holder has decided to expand marriage benefits for “gay” federal employees – even in the states where “gay” marriage is banned.
Holder announced over the weekend that “gay” partners won’t be compelled to testify against each other, can file bankruptcy together and are given the same rights and privileges as federal prison inmates are in normal heterosexual marriages.
Wilson has a 100% rating by the National Right To Life Committee and is considered an enemy by the anti-Christian group, Americans United For Separation Of Church And State.
We can expect Congressman Wilson to be smeared as a “bigot,” and “intolerant,” during the upcoming election in November for supporting marriage as a union of one man and one woman and for voting against repeal of the ban on homosexuals openly serving in the U.S. military.
The United States has long been a beacon of light in the arena of liberty. When it comes to religious freedom, our founding fathers intentionally set out in the very first amendment to the U.S. Constitution to protect religious institutions from government. It is not the federal government’s job to pressure people or private businesses to change policies or values that run counter to their moral beliefs.
Obama has been consistent in his ongoing support of the “gay” agenda and recently picked former Department of Defense lawyer Jeh Johnson to run the massive Department of Homeland Security.
In case Jeh Johnson’s name isn’t familiar to you, he’s one of the primary architects behind the repeal of the ban on homosexuals serving openly in the U.S. Armed Forces.
It should come as no surprise that Obama has just exceeded his authority to redefine marriage under federal law.
The U.S. Department of Treasury and the IRS, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services are going to recognize homosexual marriages even in states that define marriage as a one-man, one-woman union.
Christians service members are now being forced into the closet for their views on homosexuality and so-called “gay” marriage. Their fundamental rights to free speech and freedom of religion are being routinely trumped by homosexual activists in the military. Their careers are being destroyed because they uphold biblical truths about homosexual behaviors.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) recently gave an exclusive interview to CBN’s David Brody over “gay” marriage and the coming persecution of pastors for upholding traditional marriage and biblical truth.
