You'll have to forgive me for not being really enthusiastic about the marriage protection amendment that's not going to make it out of the House or Senate. Yes, it's blatant politics and an effort to get the GOP based riled up. And for those of you with short memories, the Democrats did the same thing (minimum wage hike anyone?).
Anyway, I was wondering if any lawyer type could explain to me why Congress couldn't just use it's power to limit the jurisdiction of the courts to keep the question of marriage away from autocratic judges.
If anyone has an answer, I'd be interested in hearing it.
