More Delusion on the Religious Right

The Family Research Counsel has the solution to the issue of Transgender Rights. They "think" a Constitutional Amendment regulating sexual identity is the way to go. I put "think" in quotes because I find it hard to believe that these have a brain to "think" with.

Aside from the simple fact that it is really, really hard to amend the Constitution, who else but a bunch of religious fruitcakes would even consider this.

What these people always fail to realize is that if there were enough support for an amendment, there probably wouldn't be a need for one. Cries for amendments always emerge when the Federal Courts make a decision that someone doesn't like.

Here are other amendments that aren't going to happen either.

1. An amendment to outlaw abortion or limit abortion to very narrow cases.

2. An amendment to define marriage as being between one man and one woman and thus eliminate any question of a constitutional right for gay couples.

3. An amendment to return prayer to the public schools.

On the left an amendment to overturn Citizens United isn't going to happen either.
