SLOG has the details on Andrew Hughes, the politician who’s trying to unseat incumbent Seattle Congressman Jim McDermott with a call to amend the U.S. Constitution!
Here is Hughes’s proposed amendment:
The right of citizens of the United States to marry shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
It’s awesome to see the tables turned on religious conservatives, but I don’t have much faith this would get much traction.
