Leftists Call for Impeachment of OH Judge Who Refused to Marry Gays Over His Religious Principles

Liberals are now rallying forces in Toledo, Ohio to try and impeach a municipal judge who refused to marry a gay couple because of his personal religious principles.

Toledo Municipal Judge Allen McConnell respectfully refused to marry a gay couple on Monday and a second judge stepped in to do the deed. But that wasn’t enough for the left.

Now they want his head.

The Left is already calling for the impeachment of Toledo Municipal Judge Allen McConnell who respectfully declined to marry a same-sex couple Monday.

“I declined to marry a non-traditional couple during my duties assignment,” he said per Reuters. “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.”

Another Ohio judge, William Connelly, Jr., stepped in and performed the gay-wedding for the two women.

Reuters also reports that McConnell is looking for direction on this issue from the Ohio Supreme Court.

There really isn’t any logical grounds to impeach McConnell, here. The marriage was carried out and the new Supreme Court law does not require individual people to be forced to participate in gay marriage–even judges.

What do you think? Should this judge be impeached for refusing to marry a gay couple?
