I honestly have no idea what Dreher is asking for here:
It is increasingly obvious that the US Supreme Court is going to have to rule on this matter soon. It is an untenable situation for a same-sex couple to be married in Vermont and Massachusetts and Iowa, but not in Texas, Nevada and Montana. I believe SCOTUS will constitutionalize gay marriage, and that being the case, it might be better for my side if it gets done sooner rather than later. If done sooner, there might still be enough backlash left in the American people to get a constitutional amendment passed erecting a high barrier or protection around religious institutions. Thoughts?
What on earth is he talking about in regards to an additional amendment protecting religious institutions? Isn’t the 1st amendment still operative? Does he mean things like the “institution of marriage” and not religious institutions like the church itself? And if the SCOTUS makes gay marriage constitutional, what would an amendment do anyway?
And I am not trying to be snarky, but what is he talking about? Am I just not understanding the new codespeak for the religious right?
