PA Attorney General Follows California Lead--Will not Defend Marriage

That didn't take long. Another State Attorney General deciding which laws she will or will not enforce. From Catholic News Agency:

"The attorney general of Pennsylvania has said she will not defend a state law defining marriage as a union of a man and a woman in court because she does not agree with it.

Thomas Peters, a spokesman for the National Organization for Marriage, said the action shows that the recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings favoring same-sex unions “set a bad precedent” that will allow elected officials “to not represent the will of the people when they find it expedient.”

Peters told the Washington Post that the attorney general’s move is a “pocket veto” of the law."

We've chronicled, ad inifinitum, how supporters of same-sex "marriage" have shown contempt for the law from the moment Gavin Newsom illegally directed his county clerk to issue "marriage" licences in 2004.

In other marriage news, the heroic Andy Pugno is asking the California Supreme Court to halt counterfeit marriages in California.

“The man-woman definition of marriage, as passed by the voters, is still a valid part of our state constitution. Yet county clerks statewide are lawlessly defying that law by issuing gender-neutral marriage licenses. We are asking California’s Supreme Court to restore the rule of law and the public’s confidence in the integrity of the initiative process,” said Andrew Pugno, general counsel for Proposition 8’s official proponents.

The lawsuit contends that at least 56 of the 58 county clerks must continue to follow Proposition 8 because they were not parties to the recent federal lawsuit against Prop 8, and that the state’s governor and attorney general have no legal authority to order local county clerks to disregard the state constitution."
