In a vote of 48 to 50, the effort to amend the US Constitution failed in the Senate. Supporters of the amendment couldn’t get a simple majority let alone the two-thirds required to pass the amendment to the House. Many Republicans including John McCain and Ben Nighthorse Campbell spoke out and voted against the amendment. It’s amazing that in the time of war and with a nation full of need at this moment, that the nation looks at ‘marriage’ as a pressing issue that needs to be protected. What exactly are the priorities? Love or War?
