The United States may not be ready for the idea I am about to propose, but I am coming to believe that the only way to stop "protection of marriage" religious conservatives may be to counter their attempts to pass a "Protection of Marriage Amendment" with a counter amendment to establish the right for GLBTQ individuals to marry.

The likelihood that Americans will pass such an amendment seems to be slim right now, but I think it is something to keep in mind for sometime in the future.

I came up with a preliminary phrasing like this... but as I have no legal training... any advice or changes to better the wording is welcomed:

RIGHT TO MARRY AMENDMENT

The right of residents and citizens of the United States to legally marry and gain all of the recognition, rights and privileges thereof shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state because of gender identity, sexual orientation, and/ or the genders of the marriage partners. The United States and all states shall legally recognize the marriages between a man and a woman, a man and a man, and a woman and a woman.

Any thoughts? Comments? Criticisms? Advice?
