“President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have turned their backs on the values the American people hold dear, values particularly cherished in the black community: values like marriage, which should be strengthened and promoted, rather than weakened and undermined,” reads the petition.
The D.C blog The Hill reports that while the group believes the Obama administration has “sold out,” they are specifically targeting Holder because “going after the nation’s first black president would be a losing battle.”
“If Obama was a white man, he would be impeached,” Rev. William Owens, the group’s founder and president, reportedly told The Hill.
“Obama has been given a free pass to do what he pleases, but I don’t give him a pass. I’m very black, been black all my life. He doesn’t get a pass. I don’t give him a pass.”
According to the CAAP website, the coalition is a grassroots movement of Christians who believe in traditional family values such as supporting the role of religion in American public life, protecting the lives of unborn and defending the sacred institution of marriage.
The group also claims not to be affiliated with any political party of religious denomination.
