Liberty Counsel suggests second American revolution, in part, over gay marriage

Religious outfit Liberty Council released a “Declaration of Independence 2011″ that declares it wants to “throw off” and “abolish” the current federal government.

“So grievous have these abuses become,” the authors write, “especially in the last two years, THE PEOPLE have concluded the usurpations of the federal government exceed those of the King of Great Britain during the 18th century.”

The declaration narrowly avoids sedition by promoting only “lawful” means to throw off and abolish the current government. The leader of the declaration, Mat Staver, was tapped by Michele Bachmann earlier this year to teach tea party classes on the Constitution to congressional freshmen.

The declaration starts with a lengthy preamble:

However, when an abusive government refuses to change, refuses to listen to THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE, and indeed, when such a government insists on escalating its abuses against THE PEOPLE, demonstrating a clear intention of moving toward central control, even Despotism, then it is not only the Right of THE PEOPLE, but their Duty, to throw off such a government and appoint others devoted to serve as protectors of Liberty, Life,and the pursuit of Happiness.

For decades, and especially since 2006, the American people have suffered patiently under the near-dictatorial rule of government officials and bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., officials who have abused their authority, trampling upon the rights and liberties of THE PEOPLE. So grievous have these abuses become, especially in the last two years, THE PEOPLE have concluded the usurpations of the federal government exceed those of the King of Great Britain during the 18th century, abuses and deprivations causing the issuance of the first American Declaration of Independence, thus sparking the American Revolution.

Among the grievances listed by Liberty Counsel are health care reform (which the group calls a national health care system), a high national debt, finance reform, the release of international cables by Wikileaks, trying terrorists both on American soil and through military courts, Cap and Trade, presidential trips to “apologize for America,” numerous Cabinet appointments, military action in Libya and, of course, same-sex marriage:

Promoted on every front the same-sex relationship agenda, again, against the WILL OF THE MAJORITY, advancing same-sex marriage, same-sex adoption, and the arbitrary policy shift to normalize same-sex relationships in the military, an obvious infringement upon military readiness, another weakening of our ability to provide for the common defense, and a violation of the Presidential Oath.

Refused to defend in court settled law in the Defense of Marriage Act, arbitrarily declaring DOMA unconstitutional, an act usurping the powers and responsibilities of the Supreme Court, another violation of the Constitution, and the Presidential Oath.

Mat Staver, the head of Liberty Counsel, was invited by Bachmann to teach a course on the U.S. Constitution for her Tea Party Caucus in March.
