WH Files Brief with SCOTUS Supporting Homosexual Marriage

On Friday, the Obama administration filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court to induce the Court to rule in favor of homosexual “marriage” by making any state ban on the practice unconstitutional. The brief stated that the state bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee are  somehow “incompatible with the Constitution.”

Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr., stated:

“The marriage bans challenged in these cases impermissibly exclude lesbian and gay couples from the rights, responsibilities and status of civil marriage,” adding that the four states “burdened petitioners in every aspect of life that marriage touches, from the mundane to the profound… [State bans on the official recognition of homosexual ‘marriage’] impose concrete harms on same-sex couples and send the inescapable message that same-sex couples and their children are second-class families, unworthy of the recognition and benefits that opposite-sex couples take for granted.”

The cases, in which plaintiffs have challenged the states, will come before the Court — starting April 28.

Verrilli said that homosexual advocacy was a matter of inequality. (Homosexual couples can’t produce children naturally. Their politically-induced “unions” deprive children of mothers and fathers by definition.)

Verrilli wrote that the bans “impose concrete harms on same-sex couples and send the inescapable message that same-sex couples and their children are second-class families, unworthy of the recognition and benefits that opposite-sex couples take for granted … [They] cannot be reconciled with the fundamental constitutional guarantee of equal protection of the laws.”

He claimed that homosexuals have to confront obstacles that “prevented them from full, free, and equal participation in American life.”

As David Axelrod admitted in his book Believer: My Forty Years in Politics, Barack Obama blithely lied when he ran for president in 2008, saying he opposed homosexual “marriage” for religious reasons.

Of course, after he was elected, things changed.

Obama told ABC News in May 2012, “At a certain point. I’ve just concluded that for me, personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”

Obama said at his 2013 inauguration, “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.”

This is not the first time the Obama administration has weighed in on homosexual “marriage” by filing a brief with the court. In February 2013, the administration filed a friend of the court brief for couples challenging California’s ban on homosexual “marriage.”

Interestingly, that brief specifically refused to assert that the constitutional right for homosexual couples to wed in California should become the law of the land.
