FMA Vote Delay?

Elephant Still Thinks Delay Possible, Christian Coalition Agrees

As mentioned, Elephant thinks there'll be an 11th hour postponement on the Federal Marriage Amendment, although everything I'm hearing from the Hill this week says its still on. I'm just happy to see that I'm not the only one who feels this way. It seems the Christian Coaltion agrees that a delay is possible and even likely. Perhaps they are begining to understand that the some of the FMA proponets are merely using this effort as an excuse to get them to vote.

Money quote:

Although Sen. Frist has scheduled debate on the Federal Marriage Amendment for the week of July 12, some conservatives fear that an actual vote on the FMA may be postponed until after the election -- so lawmakers won't have to take a public stand on the controversial issue before voters go to the polls in November.

The Christian Coalition of America believes that senators will "use every procedural tactic that they can think up" to delay casting a vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment.
