Cain for a Federal Marriage Amendment (for this hour)

by Jeremy Hooper

As you may have heard by now: Herman Cain, who said on "Meet The Press" that he doesn't support a Federal Marriage Amendment, has now flipped back to his 2004 position of wanting to change the U.S. Constitution so that it explicitly discriminates against same-sex couples. From CBN's Brody File:

Screen Shot 2011-10-24 At 10.37.33 AmHerman Cain: “I think marriage should be protected at the federal level also. I used to believe that it could be just handled by the states but there’s a movement going on to basically take the teeth out of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and that could cause an unraveling, so we do need some protection at the federal level because of that and so yes I would support legislation that would say that it’s between a man and a woman.”

So just like his abortion stance, Cain's marriage position seems to be all over the place. Less 9-9-9, more Bend-2-Whims.

Ya know, I never ate Godfather's Pizza. But someone tell me: When you ordered a large pepperoni during Cain's tenure as company head, did you often a plate of waffles instead?
