Last week we reported that the Family Research Council asked members to pray against “homosexual tyranny” in America after the federal government agreed to have Blue Cross Blue Shield offer full benefits for a same-sex spouse of a federal employee after a judge ruled in favor of the employee in her lawsuit against the Defense of Marriage Act. Naturally, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera is demanding that Congress impeach President Obama as a result of his administration’s decision to grant her health benefits:
“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.”
This particular case, however, is not over, as Republicans have appealed the district court’s decision, which has no effect on enrollments requested by other same-sex couples. Even though the law is being challenged in court, LaBarbera says it is still the law.
“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.”
