Bill Donohue, the perpetually outraged and red-faced leader of the Catholic League, is again calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution outlawing same-sex marriage nationally because “God got thrown from the mix” when Obama endorsed marriage equality two years ago.
Facing an onslaught of federal courts striking down bans on same-sex marriage, Catholic League President Bill Donohue has called upon Catholics to support a constitutional marriage amendment stating marriage may only be between one man and one woman…
Donohue blamed “unelected judges” and called for Catholics to rise up and “return power to the people.”
“Contrary to what many have said, this issue is not over. Were it not for unelected judges overturning the express will of the people—in state after state—attempts to subvert marriage, properly understood, would not have succeeded,” he wrote. “We need to return power to the people by considering a constitutional amendment. The time is ripe for Catholics to support the efforts of Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, the bishops’ point man on marriage. In February, he called for support of the federal Marriage Protection Amendment.”
Yeah, good luck with that. The amendment couldn’t even get through Congress 10 years ago when the polls showed massive disapproval of same-sex marriage. It has no chance whatsoever of passing now that nearly 60% of Americans support marriage equality.
