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

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...
