conservative push to ban gay marriage through a constitutional
amendment is silly.
The Missouri Republican and Episcopal priest calls it the latest
example of how the political influence of evangelical Christians is

Danforth made the comments in a speech Saturday night to the Log

Danforth says history has shown that attempts to regulate human
behavior with constitutional amendments are misguided. He cited
Prohibition as an example.
