Ralph Reed: Conservatives Can’t Put the Gay Marriage Genie ‘Back in the Bottle’

2_ralphreedMichelangelo Signorile interviewed former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed at CPAC on Friday and said that even though he believes the Republican party and every GOP candidate that will seek the nomination for president will be in favor of 'traditional marriage', he says a long sought after federal marriage amendment is dead in the water:

"Even if you passed a federal marriage amendment, I would assume it would grandfather in anyone who's been married, so I don't know. It was always a very difficult option. I don't think we ever got 50 votes in the U.S. Senate for that amendment. So, we always knew that the amendment was going to be very difficult to pass."

Reed added that trying to pass such an amendment would be "trying to put the genie back in the bottle."
