President Bush has taken the leap and now endorses a Constitutional Amendment banning gay marriage. As the article points out, amending the Constitution is difficult, so let’s hope that this doesn’t pass and put a black mark on our Constitution. I wonder if some of the gay marriage opponents think that legalized gay marriage will somehow mean that their churches will be forced to marry gay couples. The US government can’t do that… the only marriage-related action the government can take is on a civil basis.
