New GOP Marriage Equality Position Will Be Constitutional Amendment

Now that the Supreme Court has recognized marriage equality nationwide, the race is on to stake out the far right fringes of the Republican Party. Scott Walker and Ted Cruz have an early lead with their support for a constitutional amendment to allow states to ban marriage equality. Sure Marco Rubio called homosexuality a sin. Jeb Bush thinks the fight against marriage equality should continue because "we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage." And Ben Carson thinks being gay is a choice because "a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight -- and when they come out, they’re gay." But now that conservatives lost yet another Supreme Court case, GOP candidates are going to have to appease the Tea Party and support a constitutional amendment. Scott Walker saw the writing on the wall and took the extreme position before he needed to. Who will be next?
