The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) is a grass roots organization not affiliated with any political party or religious denomination. They describe themselves as "Christians working together to promote the values of Faith and Family."

The group claims the Obama administration has "sold out" traditional American principles in favor of personal agendas. CAAP founder Reverend William Owens explained that Obama's use of the civil rights movement to moralize same-sex marriage laws was "indefensible." He further stated,

“If Obama was a white man, he would be impeached. 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.”

“It’s a disgrace that [Obama] has stood on the shoulders of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. I detest them calling this a civil rights movement. It’s not a civil rights movement. It’s a civil wrongs movement.”

Owens also realizes that going after Obama is a fruitless endeavor. Therefore, knowing Eric Holder already "will go down in history as the worst attorney general," CAAP has chosen to petition for impeachment against Holder. Rev. Owens says of Holder and our other leaders in Washington:

“What we have in Attorney General Holder is a man so political in his zeal to redefine marriage that he is willing to run roughshod over the rulings of the Supreme Court, binding federal law, and the United States Constitution along with the constitutions of a majority of states. Yet our leaders in Washington are letting him get away with his illegal conduct and doing nothing meaningful to hold him accountable."

Rev. William Owens makes plain that the petition is meant for all citizens, any race or creed because “Marriage is an institution that benefits all of society; therefore every citizen has an interest in protecting marriage from these brazen attacks.”
