Yesterday was the final day to file an appeal of the May 20th ruling that overturned Pennsylvania’s ban on same-sex marriage. Just for laughs, here’s the last ditch press release from Diane Gramley, the head of the state affiliate of the American Family Association:
Pennsylvanians who understand what real marriage is are outraged that an unelected, activist judge has twisted the Constitution into something unrecognizable. They know Governor Corbett still has time to do the right thing and appeal this decision. It is critical that he act to protect the families — the children — of Pennsylvania from this decision. Their fate is in his hands and the people elected him to make wise decisions. Judge Jones has twisted history and says the facts don’t matter, but the facts point to the need for children to have a mom and a dad. The Pennsylvanians who signed petitions asking Governor Corbett to appeal Jones’ decision understand history; they understand the need to provide children with the role models provided by a mom and a dad. They also understand the detrimental effect so-called same-sex marriage will have upon the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and are asking Governor Corbett to do the right thing for their children and grandchildren.
