Mathew D. Staver, president and general counsel of Liberty Counsel, which represents Campaign for California Families, a group in Sacramento that has opposed San Francisco's bid to legalize same-sex marriages, denounced the ruling as "ludicrous."
"Marriage should not be undermined by the stroke of a pen from a single judge," Mr. Staver said in a statement. "This ruling, which flies in the face of common sense and millennia of human history, will pour gasoline on the fire ignited by the pro-marriage movement."
I know we can't expect clarity from every, uh, activist willing to provide a quote to the media, but this one kind of boggles. Who is getting inflamed? The "anti-marriage" gay people who want to, uh, get married? Or the anti-marriage (in the case of this court ruling) straight (presumably) people who are, uh, pro-marriage (though not necessarily desiring to get married themselves). ?!?!Posted by binky at March 14, 2005 11:03 PM | TrackBack | Posted to Politics
