Congressman Broun Vows to Fight for Federal Marriage Ban

According to 365Gay:

"Republican Congressman Paul Broun has announced plans to reintroduce an amendment to the US Constitution to bar same-sex marriage.

Broun (R-Ga) said the California Supreme Court ruling recognizing same-sex marriage has made it an imperative to reign in what he called "activist judges".

"My amendment will preserve the original intent of the drafters of the Constitution, by ensuring that no state or federal judge can take it upon themselves to suddenly discover a right to homosexual marriage within the text of the document," Broun said in a statement."

I am not too optimistic we can change his mind but feel free to voice your concern and opposition to his proposed amendment...

An "activist judge" is a judge with a religious agenda, so I don't know why republicans and religious nutballs use that term.

The term should be swiped by dems and non-fanatical christians and agnostics/atheists, and used towards those judges who'd rather go by the bible than the US constitution.

Where does the US Constitution give sexual rights to anyone?

Anyway, if gays and lesbians want
to fight for rights, then others
can fight against them. This is
still the USA.
