No, It Doesn't Matter

Huw is against the Marriage Protection Amendment; I'm for it. But honestly speaking, it doesn't matter: a Constitutional amendment requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to pass, and it does not have nearly that many votes. Even should it pass some future senate chamber, it would have to be ratified by more "blue" states than show any signs of changing their, err, culture (?) on the issue.

In other words, it has no chance of being passed, much less ratified. All the debate time could be better used teaching the Orthodox view of marriage, and prayer.
