“Looking back, this has been a very long journey. Four years ago we upheld Proposition 8 in the California Supreme Court. Five years ago we passed Proposition 8. Thirteen years ago we passed its predecessor, Proposition 22. And eighteen years ago I had the honor of shepherding legislation to protect traditional marriage when it first came under attack in the California Legislature in 1995. After nearly two decades of battle, let’s hope and pray for a just and definitive outcome.” – Protect Marriage general counsel Andy Pugno, via press release.
