An expert on the legal issues of marriage and family is accusing President Obama's administration of knowingly sabotaging marriage in America by ignoring the foundation for the nation's laws and instead citing "politically motivated" claims from special interests.
The accusation comes from Mathew D. Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel, which advocates for religious and civil rights and traditional American values including those belonging to the Judeo-Christian heritage.
"See how Americans and their Constitution have been betrayed by judge-made law"
It came in response to this week's ruling from District Judge Joseph Tauro in Massachusetts that the federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. The ruling now holds in Massachusetts only, but it could be expanded if the decision is upheld on appeal.
Tauro contended, "Congress undertook this classification for the one purpose that lies entirely outside of legislative bounds, to disadvantage a group of which it disapproves. And such a classification the Constitution clearly will not permit."
