National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown issued a statement denouncing the IRS' change in policy regarding same-sex married couples this week, claiming it is yet another government attempt to force gay marriage on an "unwilling public."
"The Treasury Department is grossly overstepping its authority," said Brown. "This is a nation of laws. Only Congress has the authority to change the law....[the] Obama administration is intent on forcing same-sex 'marriage' on an unwilling public."
A recent Gallup poll shows 54% of Americans surveyed said they believe same-sex marriages should be legally recognized and afforded all the same rights and privileges that come with opposite-sex marriage.
