"The documents being issued all across Massachusetts may say 'marriage license' at the top but they are really death certificates for the institution of marriage." -James Dobson, Focus on the Family.
"The sacred institution of marriage should not be redefined by a few activist judges.... I called on the Congress to pass, and to send to the states for ratification, an amendment to our Constitution defining and protecting marriage as a union of a man and a woman as husband and wife. The need for that amendment is still urgent, and I repeat that call today."
-U.S. President George W. Bush, May 17, 2004.
