Taken from CNN.com- " http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/06/05/same.sex.marriage.ap/index.html " " WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush and Senate conservatives renewed their battle Monday to ban same-sex marriage through a constitutional amendment that has a slim chance of passage. "I call on the Congress to pass this amendment, send it to the states for ratification, so we can take this issue out of the hands of overreaching judges and put it back where it belongs: in the hands of the American people," Bush said at the White House on Monday. "When judges insist on imposing their arbitrary will on the people, the only alternative left to the people is an amendment to the Constitution: the only law a court cannot overturn," he said. Many Republicans support the measure because they say traditional marriage strengthens society; others don't, but concede the reality of election-year politics. "Marriage between one man and one woman does a better job protecting children better than any other institution humankind has devised," said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tennessee. "As such, marriage as an institution should be protected, not redefined." It just goes on, and on, and on.... This is just stupid, Bush should just shove the shit right back up his ass.
