Peters to WaPo: "Very Telling [That] Gay Marriage Advocates Are Using the Courts So Heavily"

 

NOM's Thomas Peters was interviewed by the Washington Post about gay advocates turning to the courts to push their agenda -- while we continue to fight for allowing the people to decide:

Judge-Legislation“We think it’s very telling gay marriage advocates are using the courts so heavily,” said Thomas Peters, communications director for the National Organization for Marriage. “They only support the voice of the people when they think it go their way.”

Peters said his group is focused on Indiana, where Gov, Mike Pence (R) has urged the legislature to pass a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage so it can be put before the voters as a ballot initiative in 2014, as well as the ongoing legislative fight in Illinois over whether to legalize gay marriage.

... Peters said even though Oregon is “a deep blue state,” the National Organization for Marriage would work to uphold the state’s same-sex marriage ban. “We welcome free and fair votes of the people,” he said.
