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.

  1. The judge has the right under the Constitution. The First amendments states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

    By saying he has to perform the service they are attempting to deny him the free exercise thereof. It is pretty simple.

  2. This is a textbook case of ideology (or lack thereof) nullifying identity. Methinks that the fact that he is Black is totally ignored because he espouses a traditional (read: “not in accordance with the Marxist mindset”) belief. Therefore, those clamoring for his impeachment must prove OTHERWISE beyond a reasonable doubt that race has nothing to do with the motion to impeach.

    As a result, they have a moral obligation to call this man the N-word in public on record.

    How’s that for shoeing the other foot?

  3. The Judge is not a religiously ordained person and therefore he would not be performing the religious ceremony of marriage, he would be performing a civil ceremony which is not an expression of religion, the two are not one in of the same. He is however a sworn civil servant that pledged to perform the duties of his position; if his religion prohibits that, he should resign. Unless we’re going to allow judges to refuse to sign off on divorces, or allow Judges of Muslim faith to exercise their religious objections to their duties your First Amendment defense doesn’t work.
