|William Owens can apparently
count to four
Today’s money-grubber is titled “National Organization for Marriage Applauds and Joins with the Coalition of African-American Pastors in Calling for Attorney General Eric Holder’s Impeachment.” Eric Holder isn’t going to be impeached and CAAP is a NOM front organization. I always want to type “CRAAP” but that would be sophomoric.
In addition to whatever NOM is paying Bill Owens, information filed with the IRS reveals that they are contributing $35,000 per year to the William Owens Ministry. Furthermore, Bill’s wife, Deborah, claims to be NOM’s “Church Outreach Coordinator” so she is on the payroll as well. While it does solicit donations, according to the Internal Revenue Service the Coalition of African-American Pastors is not a tax-exempt organization.
Then there is the little fib. What would a NOM “press release” be without a lie or two or three?
Yesterday’s demand for Mr. Holder’s impeachment came only one day after the Attorney General stated that Attorneys General at the state level do not need to enforce state marriage laws and constitutional amendments defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
That is not at all what AG Holder advised. Nobody disputes the fact that state attorneys general have an obligation to enforce the laws of their state. However, they have complete discretion regarding what cases they will, or will not, prosecute. They are not obligated to defend their state’s marriage discrimination law if they feel that it is unconstitutional.
Clearly NOM knows this. Otherwise, they would use the word “defend” instead of “enforce.” Doesn’t their book, that they hold so dear, say something about bearing false witness?
Indeed, doesn’t this entire thing wreak of dishonesty?
