National Gay Marriage

Five days ago, I remarked:
That said, I’m pretty sure the Left plans to use the judicial system to impose gay marriage on the country. It may take a Constitutional amendment to preserve the right of the states to decide.
That didn't take long (HT: Althouse):
Rep. James Clyburn, the House Democrats’ third-ranking leader, said on MSNBC’s Daily Rundown Monday that the question of legal recognition of marriage between same-sex couples should not be left to state laws, but instead ought to be decided at the national level, a position that puts him at odds with President Barack Obama....

If DOMA were repealed or struck down, then there could be two possible ways to pass a national policy of recognition of same-sex marriages:
  • Enactment of an amendment to the United States Constitution...
  • A ruling by the Supreme Court which would find in the text of the Constitution a right for same-sex couples to marry.
Sure Clyburn is at odds with Obama. Surrrrre he is...

Gay marriage is a pressing issue! How has the country survived so long without it? We'd better deal with it right away and not take any more chances. America, ignore the bigots who are using the economy as a distraction.
