Putz to introduce constitutional amendment

Republican Tea Party (GOTP) favorite, Ted Cruz has decided he’s going to answer the recent Supreme Court decision to not hear five cases regarding same sex marriage – effectively establishing it as the law of the land within the near future – by introducing a constitutional amendment barring the Federal Government and courts from overturning state marriage laws.

Cruz

So, let’s review how this would happen.

First, the Senator from Canada – oops Texas – would introduce his amendment.

Next, he would need to get a two-thirds (supermajority) from both Houses of Congress. That would be 67 votes in the Senate (meaning at least 22 Democrats would have to vote in support) and he needs 290 votes in the House (meaning at least 48 Democrats would need to side with him). Neither of which would ever happen, however, let’s suppose he does manage it.

Next, the distinguished Senator from Cuba – oh sorry, Texas – would have to persuade three-fourths of the states, or 38 state legislatures to go along with his scheme. Well, there are about 14 states which are solid Republican (Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina) leaving him at least 24 states short straight out of the gate.

Cruz is doing this to play to his homophobic base and nothing more; he’s proving once again he’s nothing but a showboating putz.

Just a thought…

If you believe – as I do – that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were inspired, then you must believe – as I do – that God inspired the Separation of Church and State. What we do in whatever house of worship we attend, or do not attend, is between the individual and God.

church n state

God never wanted to be in the White House, or the Congress or the School. Man wants his version of God in those places. If God inspired the Constitution and Bill of Rights there is no other way to believe. You cannot have it both ways.

You cannot believe God inspired the First Amendment only to keep Congress out of Churches, and is OK with forcing religion on everyone else, whether through worship or through laws. You see, Shariah Law is Shariah Law whether administered by radical Islam or radical Christianity, it is the same.

If your opposition, or favor, of any secular law is “Because God says so” then you are in opposition to the very principles God established when He inspired the Founding Fathers.

God does not want forced worship or devotion, that is not His plan, but it is someone else’s.
