Senior White House Advisor Karl Rove confirmed in an interview yesterday on FOX News Sunday that President George W. Bush intends to support the Alliance for Marriage’s Federal Marriage Amendment.
Last February, the Alliance for Marriage drafted the Federal Marriage Amendment and won Bush’s endorsement. They also successfully spearheaded votes in both Houses of Congress, holding every member of Congress accountable to voters and positioning marriage as a pivotal issue in the 2004 elections.
"The constitutional problem created by almost a decade of activist lawsuits to destroy our marriage laws demands a constitutional fix,” said Matt Daniels, president of the Alliance for Marriage. “Our Federal Marriage Amendment will protect marriage while leaving all issues of benefits to the democratic process in the states."
