New York Times. June 5, 2008- "The California Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to stay its landmark decision allowing same-sex marriage, clearing the way for gay weddings to begin statewide later this month.
Two conservative legal groups and attorneys general from 10 states had asked the court to stop the same-sex ceremonies until a ballot measure intended to ban such unions was taken up by California voters in November."
Note the idea of allowing the ADF to follow through on their threat instead of acceding to their demands. Note how the ADF loses the appeal. Novel ideas, eh?
