Moore Seeks Convention to Stop Gay Marriage
Via the AP: Ala. chief justice jumps into gay marriage fight
Roy Moore has sent letters to all 50 governors urging them to get their legislatures to call for a convention to add an amendment to the U.S. Constitution recognizing only unions between one man and one woman.
Moore says the country’s moral foundation is under attack, and a state-initiated convention under Article V of the Constitution is the only way to stop it. An Article V convention has never been held.
Getting even a handful of states to go along would be quite a task, and getting 2/3rds of the states to call for such a convention is a impossibility. I leave to the dear readers to decide what word that means “really, really impossible” to describe the odds of 3/4th of the states (either legislatures or state conventions) needed to actually ratify.
