Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), blamed the Obama administration for a “rash” of “egregious” gay marriage rulings and reiterated his call for a federal amendment to put a stop to such decisions.

Brown made his remarks in response to a federal judge's ruling declaring invalid Texas' ban on same-sex marriage – the sixth such ruling in less than 10 weeks.

“We've seen a rash of these rulings in recent weeks, all making the same errors about binding Supreme Court precedents relevant to marriage and all issued by activist judges bound and determined to redefine marriage in defiance of thousands of years of human experience,” Brown said in a statement. “These egregious decisions by unelected judges throwing out the votes of millions of Americans have been shamefully encouraged, aided, and abetted by the lawless actions of President Obama and his administration, especially the Attorney General. It simply has to stop. Critical issues like marriage that are foundational to civilization cannot be permitted to be taken over by activist judges and out of control political appointees. The voices and values of ordinary citizens are being trampled by judges determined to impose profound social change that affects citizens in the deepest and most fundamental ways. The American people, and our leaders in Congress, need to step up and restore the powers of government to their proper balance.”

“Congress needs to send a federal marriage amendment to the states for ratification and put an end to this mockery of government. From the President to the Attorney General, to activist federal judges around the nation and even to some state attorneys general and governors in the various states, we're seeing a shameful lack of integrity and an utter rebellion against the rule of law and the sovereign rights of the American people. Power needs to be returned to the American people to uphold the right of the people to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”
