Scott Walker Backs Federal Amendmentto Ban Same-Sex Marriage

The self-prostitution of the occupants of the GOP clown car of would be presidential nominees is accelerating and now Scott Walker has pulled out all the stops to catch up with anti-gay extremist Ted Cruz and stated that he backs an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to ban same sex marriage should the U.S. Supreme Court strike down all state marriage bans.  Never mind that such an amendment has no likely chance of clearing Congress much less garnering approval of  three quarters of the states.   It's all about exciting the Christofascists and hopefully getting their primary votes.  A nasty, tawdry whore has more integrity than Walker.  CBS News looks at Walker's batshitery and self-prostitution.  Here are excepts:
Potential Republican presidential candidate and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says that he would support a constitutional amendment allowing states to enact same-sex marriage bans.

"I personally believe that marriage is between one man and one woman," Walker said Sunday on ABC News, answering a question about an upcoming Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage. "If the court decides that, the only next approach is for those who are supporters of marriage being defined as between one man and one woman is ultimately to consider pursuing a constitutional amendment."

Walker had supported a 2006 Wisconsin's constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, but a federal judge declared the law unconstitutional in 2014. 

When asked a question about his opinion on recent headlines over Caitlyn Jenner's public transformation, Walker chose to limit his comments on the "personal decision." 

"I think it's a personal decision," the Wisconsin governor said. "And to me, I don't know that there's anything more to comment on. It's a personal decision."

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the first to declare his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination, has also proposed a similar constitutional amendment to protect states' abilities to ban same-sex marriage. "T  he people should decide the issue of marriage, not the courts," Cruz said in a statement.

The Supreme Court is expected to hand down a decision on same-sex marriage by the end of this month.
