Family Reserach Council President and White Supremacist Tony Perkins:
“Legal arguments today were complicated by the fact that President Obama and his Justice Department have chosen to abdicate their responsibility to defend federal laws in court, and have instead joined in declaring DOMA unconstitutional. No amount of legal footwork by those seeking redefinition of marriage can change the fact that society needs children, and children need a mom and a dad. It’s not just about love between adults, it’s about civilization. That’s a compelling reason for both California and the federal government to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and for the Supreme Court to uphold both Proposition 8 and DOMA.”
Concerned Women For America spokesthing Janet Crouse:
“Here we are, in modern-day America, with all of our arrogance and all of our pomposity, thinking that we know enough to absolutely change all of culture. It’s a day of great perplexity as those of us who treasure marriage and understand how basic it is, not just for individuals but for all of culture, to sit and listen to these arguments and understand the impact and ramifications of all that’s going on. It’s very, very sobering. And these are very momentous days, because if the Supreme Court does go in the wrong direction, we are in for very bleak days ahead.”

“If for some reason the court had five justices vote to strike down the federal Defense of Marriage Act under some concoction that it was prohibited by the Constitution, that would have catastrophic effect. It would elevate same-sex sexual activity and same-sex marriage to the same level as race – and that would put it on a direct collision course with religious freedom and freedom of speech. The court should not be involved in social engineering or re-engineering, but this could have a big impact.”
Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage have not issued any statements and their whereabouts are unknown but a recent closings of Golden Coral all-you-can-eat buffets in the D.C. area due to selling out of food seems to indicate that they are waiting in nearby for the Supreme Courts rulings.
