The Left is demanding that Toledo Municipal Judge Allen McConnell be impeached for respectfully declining to marry a gay couple.
“On Monday, July 6, I declined to marry a non-traditional couple during my duties assignment,” he said. “The declination was based upon my personal and Christian beliefs established over many years. I apologize to the couple for the delay they experienced and wish them the best.”
Reuters reported that another Ohio judge, William Connelly, Jr., stepped in and performed the gay-wedding for the two women.
McConnell said he would continue to perform “traditional marriages” and is, “seeking an advisory opinion from the Supreme Court of Ohio” about whether he can “opt out of the rotation” that would have him perform civil marriages.
Regardless of the fact that the lesbian couple were married by another judge, mainstream leftists believe that McConnell should be impeached because he won’t violate his religious conscience.
