The man behind the Restore Marriage PAC wants to overrule the Supreme Court with a constitutional amendment that would allow states to decide whether gay and lesbian couples can marry.

Ammon J. Taylor of San Diego told The San Antonio Express-News about his plan to call a convention of states to amend the U.S. Constitution.

“Most Americans think that since the Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage, the issue is settled. It is not,” Taylor, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons), said in announcing his PAC.

A convention of states “is our only constitutional recourse to save marriage,” he added.

Taylor's father, Iowa attorney Art Taylor, led the initiative to ban such unions in Nebraska. Approved in 2000, Nebraska's ban was nullified by the high court's decision.

Professor Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, called the plan, which needs the approval of 38 states, a “pipe dream.”

“Money or no money, wise or unwise, there is very little chance of an Article V Convention happening anytime soon,” he told the paper. “There is too much fear that it might rewrite large sections of the Constitution, among other reasons.”

Taylor is proposing holding a “mock” convention in July in Indianapolis to “put the pressure on Congress to call for an amendment now.”

Taylor said that his plan has the backing of the Rev. William Owens, president of the Coalition of African American Pastors. Jonathon Saenz, president of Texas Values, has also expressed an interest. Owens and Saenz are vocal opponents of LGBT rights.
