Maggie in the News: SCOTUS Ruling on DOMA and Prop8

Via USA Today:

But Maggie Gallagher, founder of the National Organization for Marriage, which put Prop 8 on the ballot, criticized the Supreme Court. In a written statement, Gallager said Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion “unfairly and illegitimately makes ‘custom’ and ‘tradition’ a sufficient reason to overturn the democratic branch of government — a standard which has never been applied when Congress passes new laws that affirm new leftist values.”

“At the heart of the gay marriage argument is an untruth: unions of 2 men or women are not the same as unions of husband and wife. The law cannot make it so, it can only require us to paint pretty pictures to cover up deep truths embedded in human nature.” – Maggie Gallagher, fellow at the American Principles Project and co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage.:

From the National Catholic Register:

Maggie Gallagher, a fellow at the American Principles Project, said that the DOMA decision “is the Roe v. Wade of this generation, not this generation’s Brown v. the Board of Education.”

“Like Roe, Kennedy stepped in to disenfranchise millions of voters’ concerns to tilt unfairly the scale of justice.”

Also like the Roe decision, she said, “the deep questions involved in marriage will not simply go away: At the heart of the ‘gay marriage’ argument is an untruth: Unions of two men or women are not the same as unions of husband and wife. The law cannot make it so; it can only require us to paint pretty pictures to cover up deep truths embedded in human nature.”
