Antigay groups promise to fight same-sex marriage

Champagne corks popped and confetti continued to swirl on Tuesday in Massachusetts, even though opponents of same-sex marriage declared that they will still support attempts to ban such unions. "The sacred institution of marriage should not be redefined by a few activist judges," said President Bush, renewing his support for a proposed constitutional ban that has been introduced in Congress.

James Dobson, founder of the conservative Christian lobbying group Focus on the Family, said his group would throw all of its weight behind the proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution. "We will look back 20, 30, 50 years from now and recall this as the day marriage ceased to have any real meaning in our country," he said. "The documents being issued all across Massachusetts may say 'marriage license' at the top, but they are really death certificates for the institution of marriage as it has served society for thousands of years."
