Unreasonable: Even the Texas Hammer, House Majority Leader, Ultra-Conservative Rep. Tom DeLay, is against amending the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriage:

"This is so important we're not going to take a knee-jerk reaction to this," DeLay said. "We are going to look at our options and we are going to be deliberative about what solutions we may suggest."
As I've said before, this amendment is a major assault on civil rights.

A true conservative would not tamper with the U.S. Constitution. And a true Christian would not pick and choose Bible verses in which to obey. (Shellfish are an abomination, according to Leviticus. Yet the Religious Right isn't boycotting Red Lobster.)

Bush is simply trying to rally the conservative base for the election, knowing that this amendment will probably never pass. I'm tolerant of petty politics, but not when it involves the U.S. Constitution, and not when it involves outright bigotry.
