NOM Chairman: Imposing Same-Sex Marriage Is ‘Judicial Tyranny’

by Ian Tuttle

Responding to David Boies, the co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs in the Proposition 8 case (Hollingsworth v. Perry), National Organization for Marriage chairman John Eastman, noted that Boies’s appeal to legislative action “had a threat behind it” — that same-sex marriage proponents are “going to have the courts impose this on [states] whether the people want this or not.”

“This question is clearly not answered in the Constitution of the United States, and we are manufacturing a right to redefine marriage and impose it no matter whether the state or the country wants to have that redefinition,” said Eastman. “That’s judicial tyranny.”
