Brian Brown, director of the National Organization for Marriage, said the pro-marriage movement is not surprised by today’s outrageous judicial activism in California declaring Prop 8 “unconstitutional.”
“…[E]stablished gay-marriage leaders — Equality California, Freedom to Marry — are pushing a lie they know to be false: that NOM has tacitly condoned threats against gay people,” Brown said in an interview with National Review Online. “They are willing to lie and terrify their own supporters in order to raise money. It’s a shame. Even more shameful, the official Democratic party in New Hampshire has joined in the lie, issuing a press release containing this ‘murder slur’ against NOM and folks in New Hampshire who oppose gay marriage. It’s an amazing thing to see one of the two parties co-opted by its radical base in such a blatant way.”

The decision was indeed not surprising. Judge Vaughn Walker is a homosexual, the kangaroo court trial took place in San Francisco, and there was no way he was going to subject himself to the hostilities of the angry homosexuals there. To rule otherwise, he would have actually had to uphold the democratic process, respect the Constitution … and move to a remote Pacific island to avoid the incredible wrath of homosexuals.
The battle ain’t over. The Alliance Defense Fund plans to appeal the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit (another daunting gauntlet to run in Frisco) and then on to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary. Pray that they win and defeat this truly detestable movement.
