NOM's Brian Brown: If We Lose, We'll push for a Federal Marriage Amendment

This is ridic and almost insane.

Brian Brown claims he and his merry band of bigots will try to add a Federal Marriage Amendment to the constitution if the courts side with us.
I think we’re going to win these cases. But say the worst happens and we lose in a broad way – that means that the Court somehow does a Roe, a Roe v. Wade, on marriage and says that all these state constitutional amendments are overturned, gay marriage is now a constitutional right – well, we’re going to press forward on a Federal Marriage Amendment. We’ve always supported a Federal Marriage Amendment, and there’s a lot of misconceptions about it. Some people try and argue, ‘Well, this is against federalism.’ No, our founders gave us a system where we can amend the Constitution. We shouldn’t have to do this, we shouldn’t have to worry about activist judges, you know, making up out of thin air a constitutional right that obviously none of our founders found there and no one found there until quite recently. But if we do, for us, the Federal Marriage Amendment is a way that people can stand up and say, ‘Enough is enough.’ We need a solution in this country, we cannot be, as Lincoln said, half slave, half free. We can’t have a country on key moral questions where we’re just, where we don’t have a solution. And if the Court forces a solution, the way we’ll amend that is through the Federal Marriage Amendment.
And what's this half-free, half-slave mess? Brian, have a seat please.

I have a solution for people like Brian Brown. America, love it or leave it.

Need 2/3's majorities in the House and Senate or 2/3's the state legislatures.

Now being there are 50 states that comes out to 33 states. But NOM's message had fallen flatter lately so I doubt they'd get the full 2/3's in any of the cases.

And 3/4's the states have to ratify. That again is 38 states.

It's an uphill battle for a reason.
