Maggie Gallagher: 9th Circuit Decision Will Make it "Easier, Not Harder" to Let the People Vote in WA

 

NOM co-founder Maggie Gallagher interviewed by Reuters:

"...opponents of same-sex marriage sought to downplay the [9th Circuit] decision, and said it would help them persuade voters to restrict marriage to unions between a man and a woman.

"This decision fires up the base and the resentment that elites, political and judicial, are imposing gay marriage without the consent of the governed," said Maggie Gallagher, co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage.

"I think it's going to make it easier, not harder, to get the signatures and to put it to the people," she said.

The New Jersey-based National Organization for Marriage is backing efforts to hold a referendum in November aimed at repealing any Washington law before it would go into effect.
