Danforth says gay marriage ban silly idea:

Former Sen. John Danforth says a conservative push to ban gay marriage through a constitutional amendment is silly, calling it the latest example of how the political influence of evangelical Christians is hurting the GOP.


Referring to the marriage amendment, he added that perhaps at some point in history there was a constitutional amendment proposed that was "sillier than this one, but I don't know of one."

Well, prohibition itself was pretty damned silly. And then there were all the amendments to ban interracial marriage, polygamy, and divorce.

I don't know if any of those are "sillier", but they're sure up there.
