Constitutional amendment against gay marriage introduced in Congress

There are 6 comments on the story from May 30, 2008, titled Constitutional amendment against gay marriage introduced in Congress. In it, reports that:

U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) introduced an amendment to the U.S. Constitution on May 22 to ban same-sex marriage, a result of the backlash by lawmakers upset with the California Supreme Court’s recent ruling legalizing gay marriage.

Well it is an election year and he is a Republican - so what did you expect - him to do something worthwhile like ending the war?

This is the same dolt who writes on his web site: "Our nation’s capital has a gun ban, yet has one of the highest murder rates.I believe that the ban is unconstitutional. Add your name to the list of Georgians who believe that the gun ban should be ended. Why would any Georgians be interested in A DC Gun ban?

Yup: he's right (far right) on all the issues that matter to America: from the Sanctity of Human Life (so long as your are unborn or in a coma and not black) to protecting America from immigrants.

Earlier this intrepid Republican introduces a bill that would ban US Servicemen from having access to porn.

reaction to that idea: "Legislation that would restrict the sale of certain men's magazines on U.S. military bases around the world would be bad for morale, according to soldiers at Grafenwohr."

Lets see - no pron - no gay marriage - what's a GI to do in the barracks?????

Did we mention Paul is running for re-election - promising "real change" in America. Which is why the NRA has endorsed him . . .

Not going to happen. They bring that up every four years now.

What will happen is a clause to the US Constitution protecting and providing full Civil Rights to GLBT.

When are Americans going to realize that restricting marriage to monogamous heterosexual couples does not reflect accurately the wide varitey of religious teachings that exist in the United States. There are conservative, moderate and liberal churches in this country. Some churches believe that same sex marriages are fine within the context of the spiritual principles (doctrines/dogma) which they teach. Isn't it against the Constitutional principle of Freedom of Religion, and seperation of church and state, to force non-believers to only marry in monogamous heterosexual relationships?
I do not believe that any politician in our Country has the right to use civil law to impose his/her religious views on marriage upon none believers.

#4 May 30, 2008 This link leads to the full text of a book written by an English Philosopher by the name of John Stuart Mill, and his writings were amongest those studied by the founding fathers of our country and some of his principles ended up in our Bill of Rights (the first 10 Admendments to the US Constitution, the name of the book is: "ON LIBERTY". I seriously believe that anyone running for any political office in this country should be required to read this book. Once again, the book is:'ON LIBERTY', by JOHN STUART MILL.

Thomas, are you implying that one of the greatest Philosophers of all time can't read more than a McDonalds menu? That's like saying we should have someone rewrite the Constitution.
