I've been following here the events in Massachusetts and particularly the federal lawsuit to try halt the upcoming marriages. I thought today I'd share a few quotes from the appellant's memo in support of their emergency motion for injunction before the First Circuit Court of Appeals:
- "The decision of the SJC will go into effect Monday, May 17, 2004, at which time marriage as universally understood for millenia of human history will be forever changed. Chaos will ensue. Marriage has always been between opposite-sex couples, and for good reason. The incredible upheaval in Massachusetts is inevitable."
- "No one has the slightest clue what kind of an earthquake we will experience, but one thing is for sure – once we cross that bridge of May 17, the damage done will be virtually impossible to restore."
- "This cataclysmic train wreck must be enjoined pending this appeal to allow for a reasoned deliberation."
- "If same-sex marriage begins on May 17, Pandora’s box will be opened."
