Sorry, NOM—even Tony Perkins knows a Fed. Marriage Amendment is dead in the water

by Jeremy Hooper

While I strongly oppose programs like C-SPAN's Newsmakers giving anti-LGBT activist a platform to pretend to be a mere conservative pundit, the man who claims it's "a fact" that gays face eternal damnation did manage to make a little news on that show. After talking about what he would have done differently back when the Federal Marriage Amendment failed the first time, Tony goes on to admit that there is no chance of it going anywhere now (Even if he pretends that weaker measures are possibilities):


C-SPAN's Newsmakers (*h/t: G-A-Y commenter BillJohnson19D)

No federal legislation to limit marriage is going to move an inch, even under GOP control. Even if it did, it would fail court tests the same way DOMA did. That ship has completely sailed (and couldn't even sail during the height of the Bush era marriage banning nuttiness), and everyone knows it. Tony included.
