Pelosi: Same Sex Marriage 'Honors Constitution'
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | March 28, 2013 | William Bigelow

Posted on 03/28/2013 3:44:40 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, suddenly an expert on the Constitution, said on Wednesday that she and Barack Obama are “honoring the Constitution” in their attacks on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Pelosi pontificated:

"And given a choice I think we would all say we’re honoring, as the president does, the Constitution. When you pass a bill in the House, as we did with the health care bill, we made it iron clad constitutionally. You have a responsibility to honor the Constitution. In fact, we take an oath to do just that, and that is the oath that President Obama is upholding."

Attacking the GOP’s support for the Defense of Marriage Act, Pelosi whined:

"We weigh equities. Congress passes a bill. It’s questionable in terms of constitutionality. There’s no question about your oath to the Constitution of the United States, and the behavior of the Republicans in the House of Representatives on this subject has been so irresponsible. First of all, why in this time would you pass a bill that increases discrimination? We’re going in the direction of the arc of Justice [Henry L.] Benning in favor of more justice, not more discrimination. Why would you do such a thing in the first place? And then when it is questioned in terms of its constitutionality to spend money in the tune of millions outside the regular order of how that money should be spent to defend increasing discrimination in our society, it’s just plain wrong. And given a choice I think we would all say we’re honoring, as the president does, the Constitution"....

Great, now the democrats are embracing the “founding fathers” claim for social liberalism, we hear enough of that from republican rinos/libertarians.

Did Hershey, PA exist when the founding fathers were around? Did they make chocolate then? If they had to ship the chocolate anywhere there had to be some fudge packers. That would be the closest that those guys came to supporting anything so freakin gay.

Is this woman even safe to walk the streets without a guardian? The idiocies that she spouts are delusional if not plain nuts.

Where or what Amendment does it state that, Pelosi?

When you pass a bill in the House, as we did with the health care bill, we made it iron clad constitutionally.

I think that means they put Roberts in iron clad shackles until he complied.

Pelosi is bound for HELL !

Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

we take an oath to do just that, and that is the oath that President Obama is upholding.

Then, Nancy must know about moral implications of the curse surrounding an oath when it is taken in bad faith.

A little clue - you place curses on your own head when you force God to be a witness to your lie.

Speak up Nancy, explain to me again how you took an oath to support and protect the U.S. Constitution.

For the first time in my adult life I am asking that someone, namely N-— and B-—— get A*** or something equivalent. To start with!
