Rep. Doug Lamborn loves families a bunch. He defends them against ... things. Bad, non-Christian things. That's why he supports forcing his strict concept of what a family is and ought to be on the whole of the country.
Anyway, here's Lamborn's limp statement in the wake of the Obama administration's decision to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act due it being unconstitutional:
I believe President Obama is letting his liberal biases and preferences get in the way of sound, considered legal judgment. He is also insulting every state in the country that passed the Defense of Marriage Act through democratic processes, including Colorado.
This isn't very compelling. Where's the fire and brimstone? Maybe they know that the legislation is unconstitutional and indefensible — as the media-hyped GOP frontrunner, Mike Huckabee, demonstrated earlier today.
Huckabee noted that 33 states have affirmed, via ballot initiatives, that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
"When the voters are so overwhelmingly [supportive of DOMA] what does the president believe he knows that citizens in all these other states don't," Huckabee said.
Quick lesson in our democracy, fellas: Even if 33 states pass illegal laws, that doesn't make them legal.
