Kansas congressman Tim Huelskamp defends plans to amend US Constitution banning same-sex marriage

On Meet the Press Sunday, Rep. Tim Huelskamp defended his plans to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriage, repeating the often-told lie that it would protect children.

David Gregory slapped that down saying “Children tend to prosper in homes where there is a loving marriage. There is really not evidence to suggest that if you are a same-sex couple or a heterosexual couple that it makes one difference one way or the other.”
