Response to DC marriage vote from National Organization for Marriage

Okay.  This sort of response is exactly why people use the word hate when describing some groups who are opposed to same sex marriage.  What is driving this desire to defeat those who are asking to get married?  It's a lot more than merely "protecting marriage."  Here's a statement from NOM.  FYI: David Catania is a gay member of the DC City Council.  Given that the vote was 11-2, it's pretty interesting that the group decided to single out the gay member of the council.  The following statement was released by David Brown (left), Executive Director of NOM.

"The people of D.C. have a right, guaranteed by the charter, which is D.C.'s constitution, to vote to protect marriage. Politicians on the city council are acting as if they have the right through legislation to deprive citizens of D.C. of their core civil right to vote, but we will not let them get away with it.  We have one message for David Catania and the rest of these politicians today: this fight is not over. We will go to Congress, we will go to the courts, we will fight for the people’s right to vote and we will win!"
