Eric Holder Says DOJ Will Fight Any State Ban On Gay Marriage

Holder Says DOJ Will Fight Any State Ban On Gay Marriage

The Justice Department will file a brief arguing the Supreme Court should prevent states from banning same-sex marriage, Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday.

Holder said in an interview with ABC News that if the high court agrees to hear any of the legal challenges to state bans on gay marriage, the Obama administration will argue such laws are unconstitutional. Last week, officials in Utah said they would ask the Supreme Court to review a lower court ruling enabling gay marriage in the state.

The attorney general said such an action would be ”consistent with the actions that we have taken over the past couple of years.”

Under Holder, the Justice Department refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, which prohibits federal spousal benefits for same-sex couples. The Supreme Court last year gutted a key provision of that law, holding that the federal government should not define marriage exclusively as heterosexual unions.

Holder said that decision “vindicated” the administration’s strategy not to defend the law. He also said he was confident that the Supreme Court would agree that bans on gay marriage were unconstitutional.

Wild Thing's comment..........

So the US Department of Justice has nothing better to do than spend all of their time pimping sexual deviancy.

Obama and Eric Holder is going against a majority of people here in the United States.

It's a good thing there isn't anything important to investigate like the IRS political targeting and illegal gun running into Mexico.
