Republican Rep. John Becker of Union Township first called for Cincinnatibased Judge Timothy Black’s removal in September, after Black issued an order in a separate lawsuit involving gay marriage.

On Friday, Black said he plans to issue a ruling April 14 forcing the state to recognize the marriages of gay Ohio couples who have wed in states that allow same-sex marriage.

Becker said in a news release Monday that Black has allowed “personal political bias to supersede jurisprudence”

Becker has filed a resolution for Congress to impeach Black.

Black has declined to comment on Becker’s efforts.

Congress has removed only eight federal judges in history.

Typical hypocritical politician. He's all for getting govt out of our lives until there's someone else's life he wants to regulate. Govt shouldn't regulate my life but it's ok to regulate theirs. He's also introduced a bill to allow silencers on guns but I think he's the one that needs to be quiet.

This is what I gotta read in fremont/sandusky county.............

I stand with Representative Becker! Someone needs to hold activist judges accountable for their unconstitutional actions in promoting the militant homosexual agenda. Does ONE unelected officially really have the power to subvert the people and the constitutions of Ohio and the US?

Christian, right?

Until the homophobes get over themselves, this will continue to happen.

I believe gays should be able to marry, I am a Conservative. This judge should be impeached, he does NOT unilaterally have the power to tell the people of Ohio what to recognize. Put it to the people to vote on'

This judge DOES have the power to tell the people of Ohio to respect the rights of other citizens. That's what Judges do. The Congress passed the bill, The judicial branch (Judges) Interprets the law according to the Constitution to make sure no ones rights are being infringed and the executive enforces the law. Someones rights are being violated according to the constitution and this judge has just called it out. Why even put it to a vote. They are citizens allowed every right others have according to the 14th amendment correct? No vote needed.

Wrong Donnegan, there is no law in Ohio or any Federal law that says that the people in Ohio have to recognize gay marriages from other states, there is NO law here to interpret. He is legislating from the bench. the 14 th amendment has to do with freed slaves. The left is always looking for a group to call victims in their never ending search for votes. When you can't sell your ideas to the people you divide them up and pit the against one another.

Donegan

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." 14th amendment.
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States" This means you cannot descriminate against one citizen when others are allowed to do the same things. The Government in my opinion has no right to tell anyone who can marry who. We are all equal, You know unless you allow them to make laws to divide us.

Babo

Please direct me to the clause in the US Constitution that states marriage is a privilege arising under federal law.

Donegan

So you believe that marriage is not a privilege allowed by the government? It says ALL privileges and rights are protected by naturalized and born citizens. If those rights or privileges are violated by any state it is the main job of the federal government to protect those citizens against that state.

If the Government manages Marriage licensing and Divorce, they that is a government issue.

The vast majority of homosexual men are not looking for a lifelong partner.

You were born with organs meant for reproduction. Any other use is just unnatural lust pure and simple. You can choose to be abnormal, if you want to, that is a choice.

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another”

And you would know this how? Personal Experience? - "The vast majority of homosexual men are not looking for a lifelong partner."

Judging by how hard they are fighting for this right I believe it probably skews a bit differently then what you think. If they had the right, maybe they would actually want to settle down and be married. If they can't what is the point in trying?

yea right

dont matter anywho..all the OLD FARTS will be dead soon and all these 20 something yrs old will be in office in 30 yrs or so..and they dont care.. they all think being gay, bi ect is "COOL" so they will pass laws stating they can get married and the companies will comply cuz they to are run by the same ppl..in case you have not notice this younger generation could care less about family values and religion ..in about a 100 yrs or so churches in the U.S. will be "out of order"

There’s absolutely no doubt that you are 100% percent correct.

However, there will always be a remnant the Lord will use to speak His Word.

May God stay His hand for a while longer and He will if even one more might be saved.

Time is indeed running out...

No truer words have been spoken. People finally are starting to realize that someone who lectures from a age old book can not control everything. Times are changing. People are changing. The world is changing. There is no reason people cant learn from the bible and some of its teachings, but you can not expect everything to be followed so "religiously". It is different now, for the better.
