A marriage equality foe is bristling over the results of the 2010 census, which reports that about 20% of same-sex couples in the U.S. are enjoying legally recognized partnerships.
Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, says the U.S. Census Bureau's decision to track information about same-sex families -- a first for the 2010 census -- is yet another attempt by the Obama administration to legitimize same-sex marriage.
One News Now reports that Barber is accusing the bureau, under the leadership of President Obama, of "working against the law of the land to promote a sexual anarchist agenda" by undermining the Defense of Marriage Act.
"It's really shameful that the United States Census Bureau was complicit in, if not violating the letter of the law, at least very much violating the spirit of the law," Barber laments.
Data from the 2010 census revealed that approximately 20% of the estimated 646,464 same-sex couples in the United States listed a "husband" or "wife" on their census forms.
"This is another attempted chip-away at the Defense of Marriage Act and to gain full federal sanctioning and government recognition of counterfeit same-sex marriage," Barber says.
