(Nashville, Tennessee) A bill to amend the Tennessee Constitution to ban same-sex marriage has passed the state House of Representatives.

Tennessee already has legislation blocking gay marriage but supporters of the amendment say it could be overturned by judges.

The sponsor of the bill, Rep. Bill Dunn ( R-Knoxville) said he does not trust the state courts. Dunn said the Tennessee Supreme Court has a reputation for legislating from the bench.
