President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have turned their backs on the values the American people hold dear, values particularly cherished in the black community—values like marriage, which should be strengthened and promoted, rather than weakened and undermined. Our nation calls for the building up of a healthier marriage culture; instead, our elected leaders are bent on destroying marriage, remaking it as a genderless institution and reorienting it to be all about the desires of adults rather than the needs of children. 

In pursuing this intention, the President and his administration are trampling the rule of law.Attorney General Holder in particular has used the influence of his office and role as the chief law enforcement figure in our nation to try to coerce states to fall in line with the same-sex ‘marriage’ agenda. Millions of voters in 30 states have voted to defend marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but Attorney General Holder is attempting single-handedly to throw those votes away!

For abandoning the oath he swore in taking office and his duty to defend the common good, Attorney General Holder should be impeached by Congress. CAAP is calling on all men and women of good will to sign the following petition urging Congress to take action against the Attorney General’s lawlessness today!

The Petition

To the Congress of the United States

I write today to urge you to take immediate action against the Attorney General of the United States for his lawless attempts to undermine states sovereign laws regarding marriage. Attorney General Holder should be impeached for abandoning his duty to uphold and defend the law and for pushing a radical agenda on the states in a manner out of keeping with the obligations of his office. 

The majority of states in our nation define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and thirty of these states have amended their constitutions to reflect this. The standing law of our land, contained in Section Two of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), provides that no state shall be required to recognize any relationship falling outside that state’s definition of marriage to be a valid marriage. The Supreme Court upheld and reiterated this sovereign prerogative of the states to define marriage in the logic of federalism employed in the decision of Windsor v. United States in 2013. 

However, Attorney General Holder has attempted to undermine the states’ authority in this matter, specifically with his latest directives to Department of Justice employees to interpret same-sex ‘marriage’ status as broadly as possible even in those states which do not recognize these unions.

The Attorney General has brazenly overstepped the bounds of his authority and he must be held accountable. I urge you to bring impeachment against Eric Holder for his reckless attempts to undermine our states’ constitutional marriage laws and the voices and values of millions of voters.
