Tiahrt believes in re-writing the constitution

Does Tiarht believe in the constitution? Only when it serves his purpose. He has made several attempts to change it. Does he respect it at all?
*Voted YES on Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage. Marriage Protection Amendment - Declares that marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Prohibits the Constitution or any State constitution from being construed to require that marital status or its legal incidents be conferred upon any union other than that of a man and a woman.Reference: Constitutional Amendment sponsored by Rep Musgrave [R, CO-4]; Bill H.J.RES.106 ; vote number 2004-484 on Sep 30, 2004
*Voted YES on protecting the Pledge of Allegiance.Pledge Protection Act: Amends the Federal judicial code to deny jurisdiction to any Federal court, and appellate jurisdiction to the Supreme Court, to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of the Pledge of Allegiance or its validity under the Constitution. This would deny a person his or her day in court.Reference: Bill sponsored by Rep Todd Akin [R, MO-2]; Bill H.R.2028 ; vote number 2004-467 on Sep 23, 2004
*Voted YES on constitutional amendment prohibiting flag desecration.Desecration of Flag resolution: Vote to pass the joint resolution to put forward a Constitutional amendment to state that Congress shall have the power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States. Note: A two-thirds majority vote of those present and voting (284 in this case) is required to pass a joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution. So much for the first amendment. What does that flag represent anyway?
*Voted YES on banning gay adoptions in DC. Nothing like using the constitution to deny people their rights. Tiahrt seems to like that idea.
*Vote on an amendment banning adoptions in District of Columbia by gays or other individuals who are not related by blood or marriage.Reference: Amendment introduced by Largent, R-OK; Bill HR 2587 ; vote number 1999-346 on Jul 29, 1999Source:
