“Elected officials should enforce the law. Though the current California officials are unwilling to enforce the state constitution, we remain hopeful that one day Californians will elect officials who will. It is unfortunate that the California Supreme Court chose not to decide the important, still-unresolved questions about the enforcement of Proposition 8, the law of the land in California. Regrettably, an executive branch that has turned a blind eye to the enforcement of its state’s constitution has silenced more than 7 million Californians who clearly expressed their views about marriage. The court’s decision today, however, does not end the debate about marriage in California.” – Austin Nimrocks, senior counsel for the anti-gay Alliance Defense Fund.
