A Federal Marriage Amendment is Needed!

I will address only one point the critics make in this blog.

Some critics say this should be a state issue and so it should be. The problem though is some states are beginning to recognize gay marriage. What WILL happen is a gay couple married in one of those states will move to another state and demand that state recognize their marriage and they will use the full faith and credit clause of the constitution to force gay marriage on other states.

We need the FMA to protect a states ability to define marriage as it sees fit. This FM should in no way limit a states ability to recognize gay marriage but it should say full faith and credit only applies to marriage's between one man and one woman.
